It has been reported by The Illuminerdi that Jason Momoa, known for playing DC’s movie incarnation of Aquaman, has been offered the voice acting role to play Knuckles the Echidna in the second the Sonic the Hedgehog movie, due for release in 2022.
While it is currently unknown if Momoa has accepted the role (it was previously rumoured the role had been offered to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) we look forward to seeing if the high profile actor accepts the job.
As always, stay tuned to TSS for more movie updates as they come!

In an age when people are always hungry for details of “what’s next,” it’s not uncommon for a joke or off-handed comment to set off firestorm of rumors. That may have been what happened when actor Neal McDonough, who played Major Bennington, a.k.a. Major Nobody Cares (and also known for his role as Damien Darhk in Arrowverse) seemingly revealed that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson could be appearing in a currently-unannounced Sonic the Hedgehog sequel.
While talking at FAN EXPO Vancouver, McDonough said “I’m looking forward to part two. Literally, part two, I’ve already heard rumblings that The Rock is going to be [in it]. The Rock is in part two of everything, by the way.” Regardless of whether or not he was joking, the comment already has people talking on Twitter, with many suggesting Johnson would be a perfect fit for Knuckles.
This isn’t the first time The Rock’s name has come up in connection with the Sonic movie. After a teaser referenced him back in December, Johnson commented on it, and Fowler offered him a last minute cameo. It’s possible that could be the “rumbling” McDonough spoke of, or maybe it led to something more.
Or maybe this is just speculation over an unannounced sequel that takes a joke from an actor who had a minor role in the movie out of context. We’ll see soon enough!
