Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Participates in The Batman Fun With Blue Justice Trailer and Poster
In Case You Missed It Somehow, DC Is Ready To Release The Batman movie this week on March 4th. And sonic the hedgehog 2 is set to release next month on April 8. Given that the latter is still in the midst of promotional spree, it’s probably no surprise that the video game adaptation took the opportunity to crack a few jokes about DC’s Dark Knight via a new trailer and poster to to present their own. sort of a superhero: Blue Justice.
Although the output of The Batman were not imminent, the references would still be extremely clear. The new footage begins with a brief, deep-voiced monologue from Sonic about being Blue Justice and ends with Tom (James Marsden) berating Sonic for “pretending to be Batman.” You can check out the new images for yourself below:

“Because he’s the hero Green Hills deserves and needs right now,” shared Ben Schwartz, the voice of Sonic in the film, on Twitter. And to drive the point even further, the new poster is…basically just a parody of the iconic Bat-Signal with the Sonic the Hedgehog logo instead of Batman’s. It’s anything but subtle.

Sonic teams up with his own sidekick, Tails, and together they embark on a globe- traveling at a trot to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands.”
