Sebastian Stan as Shadow the Hedgehog by MZimmer1985 Sebastian Stan as Shadow the Hedgehog by MZimmer1985
Shadow the Hedgehog: Shadow the Hedgehog is an anthropomorphic hedgehog and the arch-rival of Sonic the Hedgehog. Shadow was created as the "Ultimate Life Form" by Gerald Robotnik, and is the end result of Project Shadow. His purpose was to provide ways to develop cures for incurable deadly illnesses, more specifically for Gerald's granddaughter Maria Robotnik, but he was captured and put into stasis by the military when he was deemed as a threat to humanity. Fifty years later, Shadow was released by Dr. Eggman to help him conquer the world. Shadow is sharp-witted, always on edge and has a strong sense of purpose, willing to accomplish his goals by any means. Essentially a dark version of Sonic, Shadow can match him in both speed and skill, and can use Chaos Control with a Chaos Emerald.

Sebastian Stan [Notable Works: Captain America (film series), The Martian, I'm Not Here]: After I watched Captain America: Civil War recently and coming off last night's SXSW event centering on Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces (formerly Project Sonic 2017), I wanted to bring back another oldie from last year. Sebastian Stan has submitted great work as Bucky Barnes in the Captain America film trilogy, and the character's transformation into the Winter Soldier in the last two films inspired me to cast him as one of the most underrated and ignored characters in the Sonic the Hedgehog universe. Stan had the voice (a little Troy Bakerish, perfect for Shadow), soft-spoken attitude, and pathos necessary to bring Shadow to life. I think the character's backstory can easily work within a PG-rated family-friendly film, and could give it that edge that classic Disney films like Bambi (yes, that film) and The Lion King had. Stan's performance as Shadow the Hedgehog, if it would happen, could probably even put his work as Bucky to shame.

I don't recall how his voice sounds (I've actually seen the Captain America movies and the Martian) but nothing's going to beat Jason Griffith on Shadow for me.

Jason Griffith was good as Shadow, but this is for a star-studded Sonic movie franchise. But there will be cameos from various actors of every game and animated series.

I can see the comparison with Sebastian's voice being used for Shadow. It's Similar to his other voice actors but not quite there. Though I'm not a marvel fan or wish to see the movies, I can see where you're going with this. Though my preferred voice actor for Shadow is Jason Griffith. I like how he nailed Shadow's voice. I'm seeing the resemblance but not highly into the idea.

Great concept my friend and not bad of choice either. Not something I would be into but if Sebastian really did a voice acting rolls as Shadow, I wouldn't mind hearing it. I'll give it a shot.

How about Ginnifer Goodwin as Vanilla Rabbit? (Zootopia Reference FTW)

I had a role in mind for her, but not Vanilla.

What do you think of my choice here?

No, this is a fantasy casting choice, not my art. That should've been obvious if you read everything underneath the picture.

Anything you've done with creativity and structure, like modeling a real-life aspect, comparing it with Shadow The Hedgehog is what I call the term "Art" ^_^

It's a Win, Win scenario.

That's why I cast SS. I just hear him doing his Winter Soldier voice when he would voice Shadow.

Lol wow really. I'm just again praising the casting. Also with Sonic on my mind again man. Including again your Sonic castings have always been impressive. Including with that Sony Sonic movie in 2018 to be here soon.

Sorry to get off ha but yeah I've imagined David and mixed up his voice with Sebastian's. In some way similar but not really ummm
