Sonic the Hedgehog 2: A New Poster and the "Blue Justice" TV Spot

Sonic the Hedgehog was such a weird movie. We here at Bleeding Cool actually got to see the first footage from the film in August 2019, and let's just say we were concerned by the design of Sonic. The trailer went wide, and the reception was so negative that Paramount had to delay the movie and redesign the character at the eleventh hour. Because of that delay, the movie came out in early 2020, right before COVID-19 shut everything down. So, Sonic the Hedgehog became a massive hit due to circumstance, good timing, and listening to criticism by way of forcing animators to work overtime. Paramount must be confident in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 because they have already greenlit a third movie and greenlit a Knuckles spin-off show. The sequel comes out in a little over a month, so we'll have to see how it performs at the box office and whether or not that confidence was misplaced. For now, we have a new poster from 4DX and a TV spot making fun of The Batman because, of course.
