This week we’re watching The Invisible Man and NOT Cats. Absolutely no Cats this week, sorry everybody. Also John dies in this one so look forward to that!
We now know what Shadow The Hedgehog will look like in the Sonic The Hedgehog movie sequel, thanks to a character artist’s amazing work.
Last week, character artist Eman Pelletier took to Twitter to share a take on Shadow The Hedgehog in the 2020 movie style. “I wanted to try my hand at what Shadow might look like in the Sonic Movie Style,” the artist wrote. Feast your eyes on the full piece below:
The piece aims to connect itself with the established movie art style, even using a riff on the first movie’s logo for the “Shadow The Hedgehog” font. Shadow looks edgier than ever, ready to take on or team up with Sonic in a movie sequel.
We previously wrote about why we don’t think Shadow will be in the Sonic Movie sequel, but seeing Pelletier’s art has us thinking twice. The dark Hedgehog fits perfectly in the realistic art style of the movie and would be a great foil for Ben Schwartz’s happy go lucky Sonic.
I wanted to try my hand at what Shadow might look like in the #SonicMovie style. It took me quite a while to finish it, but I think it was worth it for me. I would watch the heck out of a #ShadowMovie.#Sonic #Shadow #ShadowTheHedgehog #SEGA #Videogame #Blender3D #rendering pic.twitter.com/xQR5cbTrfs

What do you think? Will Shadow be in the Sonic The Movie 2?
Digimon Adventure Last Evolution: Kizuna is weeks away from premiering in the Western World via Fathom Events’ subtitled movie screenings. But one question fans who grew up with the English voices of Joshua Seth, Jeff Nimoy and the like are dying to know is, will Last Evolution have an English Dub?
As of now the answer is, unfortunately, looking like a no. The last time Fathom Events brought Digimon to the big screens with Digimon Adventure Tri, they brought along a new dub that featured a large portion of the original Fox Kids English cast. The fact that Fathom Events is again bringing us Digimon, but this time subtitled only, does not bode well for fans who grew up with Tai, Matt, T.K., Kari, and the others.
Furthermore, the English voice of Tai recently addressed the question of whether he had heard about a dub or would be reprising his role for the latest Digimon movie.
I will always voice Tai on #Digimon *if* I am asked. But that’s not up to me. The only reason I even knew they were recording Tri was because the fans on social media told me. As of now, no one from the studio has asked me, but I’m hoping that they will. There’s still time.✌️❤️🎤 https://t.co/MrgrglpAWC

“As of now, no one from the studio has asked me,” Seth wrote on Twitter. “But I’m hoping that they will. There’s still time.” It’s been over three months since Seth wrote this tweet, and neither he nor the studio have provided an update on the existence of an English dub.
With how much of a role childhood nostalgia seems to be playing in the movie, it’ll be a pretty crushing loss to many fans to not have the nostalgic voices from their childhood bringing these characters to life.
As Joshua Seth mentions in his tweet, however, “There’s still time.” while there’s nothing official, we shouldn’t give up hope that after the Fathom Events release, Toei Animation might double dip on the English speaking market and put together a dub.
If news breaks about a Digimon Adventure Last Evolution Kizuna English Dub, we’ll update you here!

WARNING: Spoilers for My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising Below.
My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising very quietly brings up a question that could possibly change everything we know about My Hero Academia. In the film, a character who up until now was only seen once and thought to have been a completely unimportant character is shown to be working with Tomura Shigaraki and The League Of Villains.
I am speaking about the doctor who diagnosed a young Izuku Midoriya as quirkless.
In the film, this very same doctor is seen experimenting on the main villain, Nine, on behalf of the League Of Villains. The experiments include the taking and giving of super powers, or quirks as they’re known as in the MHA universe.
In the first episode of the anime, this mysterious doctor told a young Deku and his mom that Midoriya had no powers. Was this a lie? Does Deku secretly have his own quirk besides One For All? What if Deku had a quirk that the Doctor stole during Deku’s examination? And if either of these are true…why? Could this Doctor be the true mastermind above Tomura and above All For One?!
This rocks everything we know about My Hero Academia to its core. Not only narratively but thematically: the notion that everyone can be a hero even if they weren’t born great is what attracts and inspires so many fans. The idea that a potential retcon is coming, that Deku secretly had a quirk of his own all along, could upset some fans who liked that the main hero is someone who isn’t special.
On the other hand, if the series wanted to maintain the notion that “even those without amazing powers can be special” sentiment, they could try to say that actually, it’s not quite true that 20% of people are born quirkless. Instead, they could say that common knowledge was wrong, and that 20% of people have quirks that aren’t easily observable. For example, you could have a quirk that let you breathe in space, but you’d never discover or be able to confirm it unless you were thrown into the vacuum of space.
Maybe the show’s core message could evolve slightly to be “everyone has the potential to be amazing, even if their talent isn’t super obvious.” After all, that seems to be message the show wanted to communicate with Mirio Togata; he’s the walking embodiment of turning a strange skill into something great.
Without spoiling anything, manga readers who are ahead of the show are also currently spinning their own theories asking the same questions about the Doctor that us anime only fans who just watched Heroes Rising are. This Doctor has a role to play in the world of My Hero Academia that we are eager to discover.

The Sonic The Hedgehog movie quickly became a hit this February, racing towards a box office of over 200 million with a budget of approximately 95 million. With the success it’s found, it’s safe to say we’ll be seeing a sequel to the Sonic movie, one that is likely to expand on the world of Sonic and introduce more of the Hedgehog’s buddies from the games. Here are the characters fans can assume to see in Sonic The Hedgehog 2, and the likeliness of each one:
TAILS – Likeliness: Almost Certain
Just like how Sonic 2 on the Sega Genesis introduced the world to Tails, so too will the movie. Based on Sonic The Hedgehog’s post credits scene, there’s no doubt in our minds that Tails will be in the sequel film.
DR. ROBOTNIK – Likeliness: Almost Certain
Will Jim Carrey’s Dr. Robotnik be back in Sonic The Hedgehog 2? He is a huge Hollywood superstar after all, and no one knows the nature of his contract or whether he’ll want to come back to the role. However, you don’t just set up a villain to then never return: Carrey’s bald and mustachio’d Robotnik is down but not out at the end of Sonic 1, and we don’t expect him to throw in the towel. Expect to see Robotnik return for revenge.
KNUCKLES – Likeliness: Very Likely

💫 Knuckles I think that’s it from Sonic for now i think. I had a great time with my son this past week with the release of the new movie so these are for him. I’ll do everything I can to help support this movie as I do want to see more game adaptations in the future. 🙌🏻 Hope you guys like them. Expect some more dark comic stuff next. I’ve got some ideas I wanted to do for a long time that I feel that I’ll get to them now. 🤘🏼 Thanks for all the love, always appreciate it. These are really quick and fun 🙏🏻 . #sonic @sonicmovie #tails #sega #nintendo @nintendomag
Observant Sonic fans will probably have noted a similarity between the creatures chasing Sonic at the beginning of the movie and everyone’s favorite echidna. While it’s not confirmed that those hunters were the Echidnas, it seems like as good a tease as any.
METAL SONIC – Likeliness: Possible
If we’re following the video games as a blueprint, Metal Sonic has a chance of being in the Sonic movie sequel as Dr. Robotnik’s secret weapon. In the first movie, the doctor utilized the power in Sonic’s hair to create his own super fast machine; this almost felt like a nod to Metal Sonic. If you recall Robotnik’s final scene in the film, he still had Sonic’s hair in a vile, so his second attempt at a Sonic-powered machine just may be Metal Sonic.
SHADOW – Likeliness: Unlikely But Possible
Will Shadow be in the Sonic movie sequel? This is an interesting one. If we again use the games as a blueprint, Shadow didn’t appear in Sonic lore until about 10 years into the franchise; in other words, there’s a ton of ground to cover and villains to face before the Edgehog makes his debut.
AMY ROSE – Likeliness: Unlikely But Possible
Will Sonic’s biggest fan Amy be in the Sonic Movie sequel? Frankly, this one is anyone’s guess. Ultimately there has been no indication that there are other Hedgehog characters out there. If you believe the Tails tease at the end of the first film was meant to suggest the sequel will have more CG characters then it’s possible, but it could just be Tails we see.
SUPER SONIC – Likeliness: Very Possible
If Sonic returns to his world in the second movie, there’s a chance we’ll see the Chaos Emeralds. And if we see the Chaos Emeralds, Super Sonic can’t be far behind. Sonic’s last minute power-up in the first movie’s finale almost felt like a nod to Super Sonic, and if the filmmakers want to up the ante in the sequel, Sonic will need a new transformation (this is what we call the Dragon Ball problem).
