It seems we haven't seen the last of Jim Carrey's Dr. Robotnik after all!

Earlier today, Paramount Pictures dropped a new teaser for Sonic the Hedgehog 3 revealing the threequel's logo...and a familiar cackle. Variety (via has since chimed in to confirm Eggman is going to return in this next chapter, news we're sure will delight those of you who thought the second movie might be it for Carrey's villain. 

IGN has since revealed that Jessica Jones star Krysten Ritter has also joined the cast, suggesting she may play Rouge the Bat. The site also believes Alyla Browne (Furiosa) will lend her voice to Sonic Adventure 2's Maria.

Joining them in undisclosed roles are James Wolk (Harley Quinn), Sofia Pernas (Jane the Virgin), Cristo Fernández (Ted Lasso), and Jorma Taccone (Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse).

Back to Robotnik, and the unhinged baddie appeared to take a fatal fall from his giant robot when we last saw him; however, a post-credits scene confirmed his body hadn't been found, leaving the door open to an eventual return we didn't expect to happen amid talks of Carrey possibly retiring. 

That stinger also introduced us to this franchise's take on Shadow the Hedgehog. Commander Sam Walters mentioned a secret research facility from half a century ago housing "Project: Shadow," and with Agent Stone in earshot, it looked like he would team up with Gerald Robotnik's creation to avenge the scientist's villainous grandson. 

"Shadow is clearly going to be in the franchise moving forward," writer Josh Miller said last year "I don’t think it’s revealing anything to say we’d love to incorporate elements from Sonic Adventure 2 and Shadow the Hedgehog, his solo spinoff game." The latter was poorly received by gamers, though there's plenty of material in there that could be useful to the next movie. 

Of course, we still don't who will lend their voice to Shadow. Keanu Reeves remains a fan-favourite suggestion, and after Idris Elba was enlisted to play Knuckles in both Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and his own spin-off TV series, we're anticipating an A-Lister filling the role. 

What will be interesting is seeing how this third instalment avoids repeating what we saw from its predecessor where Eggman unsuccessfully attempted to find a new ally in Knuckles. 

Jeff Fowler will be back in the director's chair, with Ben Schwartz (Sonic the Hedgehog), Colleen O'Shaughnessey (Miles "Tails" Prower), Idris Elba (Knuckles the Echidna), James Marsden (Tom Wachowski), and Tika Sumpter (Maddie Wachowski) all set to reprise their respective roles from the first two movies.

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 is set to be released in theaters on December 20, 2024. You can check out this new teaser for the movie in the X post below.

anyone from ohio or indiana can fact check that.

@OriginalGusto1 - Scurvy?
OriginalGusto1 - 2/2/2024, 10:53 PM
@MosquitoFarmer - It's an Ohio thing.
mountainman - 2/2/2024, 10:59 PM
@OriginalGusto1 - Scurvy must make a woman much more attractive and less annoying.

@mountainman - TIL

Jim Carrey's first trilogy! Also Jessica Jones herself would be fitting as Rouge the Bat or perhaps Amy Rose, while Alyla Browne is likely Maria or Amy Rose!

Perfect Amy Rose :

So Shadow is connected to the negative speed force

I'm so glad Jim Carrey walks the talk.

He's an outstanding motivational speaker which his team keeps it outta the media for humble reasons.

It's cool to me that his celebrity hasn't gotten the best of him. So that's cool in his psyche with making kids happy on the Sonic franchise while being an accomplished dramatic actor.
lazlodaytona - 2/2/2024, 11:05 PM
Nothing beats ol' Fire Marshal Bill tho!

@lazlodaytona - What isn’t cool is hi using his platform to spout lies about vaccines causing autism when this has been debunked numerous times..

Both Sonic films have sucked so I doubt this is any different lol

Get that check Krysten!
JustAWaffle - 2/3/2024, 2:12 AM
The last two Sonic films were the quintessential definition of fun for the whole family. I can’t imagine where we’d be if they didn’t change the character models.

@JustAWaffle - that chip'n dale movie had no right being that good, it's like the Disney high ups were asleep while they were filming it
bkmeijer1 - 2/3/2024, 3:51 AM
@Urubrodi - indeed. Kinda hope Disney is gonna make more of those hybrid movies. Think that's a concept that would fare much better than lazy live-action remakes
JustAWaffle - 2/3/2024, 2:13 AM
Also 20$ says Ritter is Amy
HulkisHoly - 2/3/2024, 2:17 AM
That tweet teased “shadow” obviously but I’m wondering if that “underground” remark was a tease to the show Sonic Underground. Probably a long shot.

Excited for this take lots of inspiration from SA2
JustAWaffle - 2/3/2024, 12:11 PM
@HulkisHoly - I hated Sonic Underground. It was confusing with a lot of the characters, voices, and whatnot being the same as Sonic SatAM, but it was like a complete reboot that was geared toward 4 year olds over the preteen approach they gave the original (and it never got a satisfying conclusion). It was my generations Spectacular Spiderman.

@JustAWaffle -

I’m nostalgic for it but that doesn’t mean it was good. Had a banger of an intro song though.
JustAWaffle - 2/4/2024, 9:41 AM
@HulkisHoly - It’s been a long time, so I guess it’s the concept and remembrance of the characters that grip me. I used to read the Archie comics too.

But that theme song slapped harder than it should have.
TheVisionary25 - 2/3/2024, 2:33 AM
I still haven’t seen the sequel but I thought the first one was ok….

Carrey’s Robotnik was the highlight imo so I’m glad he’s back for this aswell.

Rest of the cast is cool too , always nice to have Krysten Ritter imo!!,
Slotherin - 2/3/2024, 9:44 AM
@TheVisionary25 - I enjoyed their take on Knuckles. It was basically their take on Sonic The Hedgehog 2&3
AC1 - 2/3/2024, 6:30 AM
Krysten Ritter voicing Rouge actually seems like a pretty great choice. It'll be interesting to see who voices Shadow, I know Keanu Reeves is one of the most heavily rumoured but I've also seen names like Hayden Christensen floating around too.
ModHaterSLADE - 2/3/2024, 6:46 AM
Good. Carrey was the main source of comedy for these movies so without him I couldn't see these movies being as remotely as entertaining.
Chaos200 - 2/3/2024, 9:36 AM
Can this movie not have a [frick]ing stupid human side plot please? Bad enough you skipped over Metal Sonic.
Nintendo and Mario had to show Sega AGAIN that we don't need to force crappy "relatable" human stuff to make an outlandish video game concept work in cinema. And don't give me the "Mario is human" he's no more human than sonic is. That's why live action Mario always looked stupid.
Slotherin - 2/3/2024, 9:44 AM
@Chaos200 - has Metal Sonic gotten any love anywhere since Sonic Heroes?
Drace24 - 2/3/2024, 10:15 AM
@Chaos200 - What? You didn't like Sonic 2 having a 20 minute side-story about a couple getting back together after a fake wedding?
Chaos200 - 2/3/2024, 10:26 AM
@Slotherin - I think he was a big part of Sonic Mania, arguably the best Sonic game since Sonic & Knuckles. Regardless Metal Sonic is a classic staple of Sonic lore, maybe they'll do it backwards and he'll show up after Shadow.
Chaos200 - 2/3/2024, 10:28 AM
@Drace24 - I can bet there's a cut of the movie out there that even a fan has probably edited that cuts all that crap out plus some other silly moments and it probably plays like a great 50 minute Sonic movie.
HulkisHoly - 2/4/2024, 8:59 PM
@Chaos200 -

Yeah I completely agree. I mean the 2nd movie was about 20 minutes longer than the first movie. If you cut out that whole wedding side plot, you’d literally get those 20 minutes back and the movie would be the same length as the first one.
HulkisHoly - 2/4/2024, 9:00 PM
@Chaos200 -

I’ve been wondering the same thing myself. That would be awesome.
Spike101 - 2/4/2024, 6:34 AM
But when is she coming back to Marvel as Jessica Jones, that’s the news we need?
