Ryan Reynolds as Sonic the Hedgehog by MZimmer1985 Ryan Reynolds as Sonic the Hedgehog by MZimmer1985
Sonic the Hedgehog: Sonic the Hedgehog is an anthropomorphic hedgehog born with the ability to run faster than the speed of sound, hence his name, and possesses lightning fast reflexes to match. As his species implies, Sonic can also roll up into a concussive ball, primarily to attack enemies. Ever since stepping into the battle against injustice, Sonic has been the victor of peace and is renowned over the world for saving it countless times. During his many adventures, Sonic has traveled from the ends of the world to the far reaches of space and time, facing countless trials that have tested him to the fullest, earning him many titles, allies and the scorns of several foes. Well-known for his legendary cocky attitude, easy-going demeanor and somewhat short temper, yet strong sense of justice, compassion, and love for freedom and adventure, Sonic uses his abilities to protect the innocent from his world and those beyond from the forces of evil, especially his arch-nemesis, Dr. Eggman.

Ryan Reynolds [Notable Works: National Lampoon's Van Wilder, Green Lantern (2011 film), Deadpool (2016 film)]: I was gonna debut this whenever a new trailer for either Sonic Mania or  Project Sonic 2017 would surface, but I want to bring back the Sonic castings along with my choice for Batman villain David Cain. Anyway, even though this choice was born after watching Deadpool last year, Ryan Reynolds was actually showing off how he could actually do well as Sonic the Hedgehog back in 2013 with the film Turbo. The clip I come with is the perfect evidence to back my theory. Also, he was once going to play Wally West a decade earlier when a Flash movie was being tossed around at the time, so this would be as close as he can get to portraying the Fastest Man Alive... or the Fastest Thing Alive (referencing the SatAM series). I'm also basing this version of Sonic off of Roger Craig Smith's more wildly irreverent take on the character that's been current since Sonic Colors, although there will be inspiration from the Archie comics where Sonic has more character development and emotional moments. He would be absolutely perfect for the blue blur himself.

He might a bit on the low pitch end of things, but not a bad choice by any means.

Listen to the "Where's Francis" clip from Deadpool, as well as the clip from Turbo. He's still at an age to voice a teenager.

i would not mind it at all if Ryan Reynolds played sonic in the movie. but unfortunately, since the director and him had a quarrel over deadpool 2 and this caused the director to walk off of it, due to this i doubt Ryan Reynolds will play sonic any time soon

Well, this is for my own Sonic the Hedgehog series that covers the games. How Sony is planning out the Sonic movies isn't too promising. But my series would feature adaptations of the Mega Drive games (well the first one is an adaptation of 1-2, since Sonic will meet Tails in the first movie; the second one will adapt Sonic 3 and Knuckles), the Adventure duology, the Rush duology (a combination of both games, the storyline centered on Rush Adventure), Sonic Unleashed (with several nods to the recent Shattered World arc in the comics), Sonic Chronicles and Sonic Forces (the last two would be filmed back to back, as Forces is rumored to be a follow-up to Chronicles, so why not have that for the two movies?). I doubt Sony Pictures will be doing all that, but it would be great to see the plots from the games be used for animated series (Sonic X came close to that, adapting the first two Adventure games and Sonic Battle) or even a movie.

Sweating a little...

You got all that?

yeah. but i honestly disagree about Sony doing the sonic movie. they got the director of deadpool and scott pilgram vs the world (meaning they got a guy who knows his shit about games and comics) they got the producer of the fast and furious franchise, they got blur studios for the animation (they did the over watch cut-scenes, some halo stuff, and even some theme park stuff for universal studioes.) and they have 14 writers. one of them being a sonic fan to keep the others in check

I'm not so sure. On the one hand, Reynolds CAN act the fool like SEGA so wants Sonic to be, but he can also have a more serious performance when it calls for it. Deadpool was a great example of both. But...I dunno, I think he sounds a bit too old to voice a...whatever-age the teenage Sonic is. Is he still 15? Is he ALWAYS 15? Can't remember.

Well, this is for a Sonic series distributed by Disney, who often gets actors to to deliver at their best. Amy Poehler did comedic work, but was very touching at one point in Inside Out. And, hey, Ryan has done drama before in case you missed out on The Amityvile Horror, Smokin' Aces, Chaos Theory, Buried, Safe House, The Captive, Mississippi Grind, Woman in Gold, self/Less, Criminal, and Life. And if you heard him in Turbo, he can sound young.

Fair enough. If only Disney could own the Sonic franchise. Sega will probably hire Zack Efron when Craig Smith's time is up.

Personally, I'd love to hear Sonic say, "All the dinosaurs feared the T-Rex," o "Oh, your poor wife." :XD: 

Ryan Reynolds is actually an amazing choice for Sonic. He's got that sarcastic wit in his voice that would totally fit the blue blur. :)
