Sonic the Hedgehog 3 Set Photos Confirm Major Video Game Character's Debut – CBR – Comic Book Resources

Earlier this month, Paramount Pictures confirmed Sonic the Hedgehog 3 is in the works, and now new photos from the set reveal a major character from the video games will be part of the cast.

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 will include six new cast members from the beloved video game. Sonic 3 already confirmed that Jim Carrey will reprise his role as Dr. Ivo “Eggman” Robotnik, and among the newcomers were Alyla Browne (The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart), Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), James Wolk (Harley Quinn), Sofia Pernas (Jane the Virgin), Cristo Fernández (Transformers: Rise of the Beasts), and Jorma Taccone (WEIRD: The Al Yankovic Story). Actress Alyla Browne has shared several pictures from the set on Instagram and confirmed she is playing a major character from the video games.


Sonic the Hedgehog Star Shares Exciting Update on Part 3 and Knuckles Spinoff

Sonic the Hedgehog movie actor Tika Sumpter shares an exciting update on the third film along with the Knuckles spinoff series.

The set of pictures shows Browne on her chair on set, and the name on it reveals she is playing Maria Robotnik. However, the actress was careful not to give away her appearance. The actress wore a long winter coat backward and didn’t reveal anything else from the set.

Her character, Maria, is Professor Gerald Robotnik’s granddaughter and the cousin of Dr. Eggman. She is suffering from a terminal illness, which pushed Robotnik to create Project Shadow to save her. Maria later became close friends with Shadow the Hedgehog, Gerald’s creation.


Is Paramount+’s Knuckles TV Series Too Far Removed From the Games?

Paramount+ trailer for Knuckles doesn’t show off much from the games, begging the question of why certain Sonic characters aren’t included.
