Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was released to theaters on April 8, continuing with the blue hedgehog’s big-screen adventures.
The sequel brings familiar faces of Sonic’s two-tailed sidekick, Miles “Tails,” Prower, and Sonic’s arch-rival “Knuckles, The Echidna” to the group, making them a trio now. These are the most popular characters for fans in the video game series.
The game also has a list of heroes and villains that range from Metal Sonic, Team Chaotix to Big the Cat and creatures like Chaos, The alien-like God of The Chaos Emeralds, and protector of the adorable little animal like pets, The Chao. Or perhaps since it is stated that Sonic has growing to do, will this mean Amy The Hedgehog may make an appearance as his first love interest.
Many of you are probably wondering if the movie will have more characters, and for you blue blur fans, you are in luck. At the end of Sonic the Hedgehog 2, they certainly set up for a sequel with all the plots and twists throughout the movie.
For those who grew up in the 1980s, this movie was something from your childhood with the big battle between Dr. Robotnik and Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles, without giving too much of a spoiler if you haven’t seen the movie yet.
At the end of the film, however, the end credits will send a thrill to those fans of the classic game. The new generation may be excited about this, while those may be up in arms with the reveal of a new character.
We will tell you what goes down in the final moments of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and what that means for the future of the series.
Spoilers to follow.
Does Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Have a Post-credits Scene?
When the credits are done at the end of the film, there is a post-credits scene that leaves fans wondering what will happen next. We are introduced briefly to Shadow, an anthropomorphic hedgehog/Black Arms hybrid. He was created as the “Ultimate Life Form” by Gerald Robotnik (the grandfather of Dr. Robotnik), using the DNA of Black Doom. The scene is brief and may leave fans stunned and questioning just what is to come for the next movie in the series.
What Happens in Sonic the Hedgehog 2’s Post-credits Scene?
At the end of this sequel, Dr. Robotnik is once again defeated by Sonic after falling off his enormous Death Egg robot. After this, G.U.N. (Guardian Units of Nations) agents are searching the area for Robotnik, and we are left thinking he is nowhere to be found.
However, we do get to see the fate of one of his goons. Stone sneaks his way through the scene disguised as one of the agents. We see him remove his mask just before the scene ends. A G.U.N. agent then stops Commander Walters to tell him she’s made a troubling discovery. This discovery shows us that G.U.N. discovered a secret file dating back over 50 years. The file contains coordinates to a hidden black site research facility working on something called Project Shadow.
For Sonic Satam fans, will we finally get a twist where Agent Stone turns out to be the notorious nephew of Dr. Robotnik, “Snively”?
As gamers may already know, Project Shadow was created by Gerald Robotnik. His purpose was to provide ways to develop a cure for incurable deadly diseases, more specifically for his granddaughter Maria Robotnik. Unfortunately, he was captured and put into stasis by the military when he was deemed a threat to humanity.
How Will Shadow Play Into Sonic the Hedgehog 3?
We see Sonic battling Dr. Robotnik in the last two movies, and we wonder if Paramount will add a new villain. Jim Carrey has announced that he will retire, so this has fans wondering what this means for the fate of the series. Will life go on without Dr. Robotnik, or will Shadow become the new villain?
Shadow was designed to be the “Ultimate Life Form,” almost similar to the power of Master Emerald. If the third installment gets greenlit, you can be sure that Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles will team up to defeat the black hedgehog.
Will Jim Carrey return? He has hinted that if there were a script special enough, he would come back for that film. Until then, his retirement is a mystery. This makes Robotnik’s future seem open and confusing for fans. Would he come back and team up with Shadow, or would he disappear entirely?
With Agent Stone listening in the end credits, this leaves a lot for interpretation. Who is Agent Stone with the help of Dr. Robotnik? Since the second movie just came out, it’s unlikely for the new cast to be revealed just yet.
