Shadow the Hedgehog PS3 PlayStation

Two years after debuting in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, it seems a Hollywood leading man of sufficient talent has finally been found to portray the edgy Shadow the Hedgehog. Keanu Reeves, who needs no introduction but will get one anyway, is the star of film franchises like The Matrix and John Wick, and, of course, Cyberpunk 2077, has been confirmed to play the part.

Rumours have circulating in recent hours, but The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed the casting, locking down multiple sources familiar with the subject. The news comes hot on the heels of the first footage of Sonic the Hedgehog 3 being shown during Cinemacon. Reeves will no doubt spice things up in his own, uniquely Keanu way, but it remains to be seen how he fairs when paired with the moustachioed Dr. Robotnik, with Jim Carrey confirmed to be reprising the role.
