As you well know, the Sonic the Hedgehog movie has been getting bombarded with anger and confusion after the initial reveal of the animated poster. It seems backlash for the sneak-peek visuals have been almost universally bashed, and fans are wondering just how in the world these decisions were made. That negativity has not escaped the team working on the film, and one person attached to the project has spoken up.
Patrick Casey is a co-writer for the film's screenplay, and he's taken to Twitter to share some quick thoughts. It's obvious he doesn't want to jeopardize his job or attachment to the project, so he kept his words short and vague.
Everybody relax.— Patrick Casey (@Pat_Kc) December 11, 2018
As you can probably guess, even this two-word response was met with backlash from fans. It's very clear that the path ahead for the Sonic movie is going to be quite the bumpy road. The debut trailer is going to have to work wonders to turn things around.
