After debuting the first look at Sonic the Hedgehog 3 on stage at CinemaCon 2024 last week, the third installment of the franchise Sonic the Hedgehog from the study Paramount Pictures and the director Jeff Fowler continues to share news to the audience.

The most recent is the recently confirmed signing of Keanu Reeves (John Wick) lending his voice to the popular character Shadow, THR reported. The character debuted in the video game Sonic Adventure 2 from 2001, and is in many ways considered the anti-Sonic.

Reeves joins Carrey's comebacks, Ben Schwartz lending his voice to Sonic, James Marsden like Tom Wachowski, Colleen O’Shaughnessey lending his voice to Tails, and Idris Elba a Knuckles. Con Tika Sumpter, Natasha Rothwell, Adam Pally y Lee Majdoub, Kristen Ritter (Jessica Jones), Alyla Browne (Angry), James Wolk (Watchmen), Sofia Pernas (Jane the Virgin), Cristo Fernandez (Ted Lasso), y Jorma Taccone (Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse) completing the distribution for the moment.
