    • That would make a lot of sense because why would they switch it up like that being so close?? Either way, its a hell of a strategy and earned a lot of respect from me for even saying 'we fucked it up.'

    • That’s definitely possible. Companies will to insane things for marketing and what’s better than this fiasco and the promised fix to keep people talking about the movie until it comes out. Then the brand has staying power because everyone is relieved Sonic wasn’t hideous.

    • Sonic's design wasn't even the main problem with the movie. Generic military dudes, Sonic apparently needing help from a random guy for some reason, Eggman seeming to be more in the right as he just want to make Sonic stop being as asshole and making power outages with his speed, are the problems

    • I’m convinced that this horrible version of Sonic is just clever marketing. They dropped the bar so low that no matter what happens people will just think “well, at least they fixed the design”. They seemed a little too enthusiastic about fixing a very easily avoided problem.
