Idris Elba Voicing Knuckles the Echidna in Sonic 2 Movie

Idris Elba, an English actor and musician, has been confirmed for the role of Knuckles the Echidna in the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie. Known for his roles in TV shows like The Wire and Luther and movies such as No Good Deed, Pacific Rim, the Thor trilogy, and the recently released The Suicide Squad, Elba has long had a presence in high budget television and blockbuster movies. 

He also played Macavity in Cats. So, theoretically Knuckles can sing, I guess?

Knuckles and his voice actor have both long been part of Sonic 2 movie speculation. Even before Knuckles was leaked, actors like Dwayne Johnson and Jason Mamoa were both being rumored by nonsense websites as potentially being up for the role.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will hit theaters on April 8, 2022, and is currently in post-production.
