Spoiler

So early details about Sonic 3 were seemingly revealed....well, early. This sounds...interesting, but I'm a bit bothered by the characters they choose beyond Shadow.

Like, really? Big the Cat? Over ROUGE OR OMEGA? C'mon, son. Lame.

I heard about this and immediately needed it.

Spoiler

Bummed about Rouge, but maybe they're saving her for the Knuckles' tv show. Still a bit disappointing. Maybe not all hope is gone yet; maybe Rouge is really playing up espionage, so this synopsis is saving that for later. We're gonna need someone with her expertise to get that info on Gerald.

Its really hard to feel any sort of way about character reveals - considering that we don't know whats going to come out of the Knux TV series just yet. Some of the characters mentioned in the synopsis may well have already made their debuts by the time the 3rd movie rolls around.

 

Spoiler

Would it be surprising if either Amy or Big showed up in the TV show first? Not really. Ditto for Rouge, who between the TV show and third movie has a 1000% chance to show up somewhere.

Spoiler

Big may be underwhelming, but the movie theoretically already has two bonnifide headliners in Shadow and Metal. Those two will move the needle enough to get the hype train chugging along.

Two Sonic clones + Egghead as villains at the same time? Why, just call the movie Sonic Triple Trouble then. 

But truth be told, I'm a little concerned about how they'll be able to develop both Shadow AND Metal (then again, Metal doesn't need much development, he's a fucking robot). But the thing is, both of them challenge Sonic's speed, meaning their face offs will be kinda samey. We'll see.

Also, Mini Emeralds? lol Amy AND BIG? Oh my goodness, Jeff. Don't bite more than you can chew. Big deserves a solo movie. Hell, a trilogy actually. And a Paramount+ series.

Like, you could sorta justify Amy since she was technically part of the plot of SA2 and composite her role with Rouge's to justify having a female lead.

 

But Big and Metal Sonic are absolutely pushing it. Neither character has much to do with Shadow's story, and in the latter's case, they both occupy the same niche as evil Sonic clones so there's a sense of redundancy there.

I really hope this is just an early draft and this gets revised later to something more cohesive otherwise this is gonna be a mess of a movie lmao.

Im already so worried with Metal being in this movie; I want him introduced to the movie verse, especially if Jim Carrey is on a time limit, but not at the expense of cutting into Shadow’s movie and throwing a wrench in both arcs they’d be best for individually. Might as well set my expectations to the lowest possible setting if they’re cramming extra characters in just for the sake of “star” power.

Yeah I kinda hope it's fake, because it feels too bloated. I'd understand bringing Metal in to complete the trinity of Eggman, Shadow and someone else as a means to get a rivalry going with Sonic's own team, plus Metal could be the final threat once Shadow switches sides, as I doubt we're going to space, much less bring the Biolizard in, as both feel like a bit of a jump compared to what we got so far.  Amy I can also see being brought in and tying whatever her arc is to Shadow's, so that we can have the scene of her convincing Shadow to help by reminding him of Maria, but Big really feels like pushing it. I also feel like bringing Metal in, while necessary because unless they give Rouge the same powers as the main trio, it'll be hard for her to match Knuckles (unless they match her up with Tails instead) brings the problem of two characters whose powersets are a copy of Sonic's, removing the uniqueness of both Shadow's AND Metal's introductions.

I can see some of the choices here working, and I was never expecting a straight adaptation of SA2 as some were, since I could see them avoiding some of the more out there elements of SA2, so the plot taking a mostly different route doesn't surprise nor bother me, however the amount of things they want to tackle if this does turn out to be real do worry me.

It should be noted that the second movie's plot leaked about over half a year before it came out.

That said, they haven't even started filming yet so take it with a grain of salt. This is more like a skeleton.

Why are we bothering with spoiler warnings in a spoiler thread?

Spoiler

Shadow and Metal Sonic plus Amy was farfetched before we knew who'd be the main new character but Shadow, Amy, Metal Sonic, and Big in one movie? Damn. 

I guess if they're not sure if the franchise will continue after this it makes this is the time they'd start bringing in more things. 

Didn't they use the term Master Emerald in the second movie?

If Shadow and Metal were both involved, I figured Metal would be Robotnik's secret trump card, the final boss for when Shadow inevitably switched sides. Having both "evil Sonic"s active at once feels like it would be hard to balance.

No real feelings about Amy and Big possibly appearing, in general or over more "important" characters like Rouge. Getting any Sonic characters involved in the story given how the setting works is a task, so I'd have to wait and see how they go about it for whoever they bring in.

Yeah, but there is a difference between half/over half a year before release and more than two years. 

This is unusually early for a leak like that.

It's likely a leak meant for marketing and toy manufacturing, hence, why it skimpy on details outside of listing a bunch of toys names.

Overstuffed. I hope this is just an early draft, because this synopsis sounds overstuffed to the brim.

Absolutely. It doesn't seem like there will be any room for my boy Tails to shine if this leak turns out to be true. I hope he doesn't get shafted like his SatAM counterpart (Or reduced to a coward like his game counterpart).

Having Metal Sonic just be a last minute final boss is probably the only way to use him without stepping on anyone else's toes.

The worst part is, if this turn out to be true, we might already know how the third act will play (and I'm sure I wouldn't mind Sonic and Shadow vs. Metal... In space! Then again, either LEGO or McDonald's will most certainly leak everything again as usual lol

I'm not big on the idea of adapting SA2 tbh, these movie only borrow elements from the games to tell their own story. We can have Project Shadow and Gerald without Rouge or the Biolizard for all I care.

I think we’re far enough down the thread now for people to know this is a spoiler thread so not doing spoiler tags.

This seems unbelievably early… and much too bloated and messy. Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, plus newcomers Shadow, Amy, Big AND Metal Sonic on the CG side.

And on the human side: Eggman, Tom, Maddie, Stone, GUN and its various members, and probably Wade/Rachel/JoJo, plus Gerald and possibly Maria although she isn’t specifically mentioned.
 

Nobody is gonna have much room for character arcs or developments (or even screentime) if this comes to be true. And since we already have existing characters who haven’t completed their character arcs yet, this is gonna be too much. 
 

So no, I’m not really thinking this is anything final.

"Various characters - Amy and Big"

Why.

Various characters means a decent amount of characters, not just two. If only those two, then better say Amy and Big directly, not Various characters.

Anyway, as other people said, I think it would be better to just not add anyone and focus on the existing cast. Tails became useless in the second movie because it focused on Sonic, Knuckles, Eggman and the humans, so Tails really was out of place and only his gadgets were kinda relevant to the plot, for a limited time... the character himself was just there passive and doing almost nothing.

IMO even Amy and Rouge should stay away from the movie canon unless they really have a strong and working idea to make them work in the story without being shoehorned for the sake of adapting SA2. I mean, in the Knuckles spin-off serial they can do wathever they want, it's episodic and they can put focus on a few characters each episode, but the movie just no.

As for Shadow and Metal Sonic in the same movie, that's kinda bad too. Either one or the other, both make no sense, they are essentially the same thing, an evil and edgy version of the protagonist, and Knuckles already lowkey was the same thing too, so it just gets repetitive and boring at some point.

tl:dr

I hope it's fake because it sounds like it would suck hard.

Honestly speaking, I already felt like Movie 2 introduced a few things too early (like Super Sonic) so I'm with everyone else in hoping this is early....

Though I'm not gonna be holding my breath. If they were able to tease Shadow in the end, then they clearly already have a story ready...especially since next year is gonna be the filming and cgi production year, assuming they aren't gonna begin production sometime later this year.

Plus why would they seemingly give out a rough draft without specifying things are subject to change?

The second movie mostly worked because the games they elements they adapted (Sonic 2 and Sonic 3) were pretty loose on story elements, so you could essentially any type of story so as long as you kept those elements.

You can't really do that with Shadow since he had a very specific story to tell; good luck trying to get the audience to care about any of these newly introduced characters if they have to get shortchanged for Shadow's story, and the existing development for everyone else.

All of that in a two hour time frame.
