An official Twitter account for the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie has appeared, seemingly operating as a way to keep people talking about the film via memes and humour.
At this point, you’re likely aware of the shenanigans surrounding the first couple of movie poster reveals – the first poster received an overwhelmingly negative reaction as fans came to terms with Sonic’s new muscular physique, and it only got worse with the second poster’s full leg reveal.
The new account’s first (and currently only) original tweet addresses fan concerns by joking with those who have said negative things online. As you can see, a picture of a possibly even more muscular Sonic can be seen holding a poster with the words “Can’t a guy work out?” blazed across its front. The image’s caption tells you everything you need to know.
Aside from this tweet, the account has also been retweeting images from other users, even if they’re not exactly showering the movie with praise. Here are a few examples.
Whatever your thoughts on Sonic’s new look, it seems like this is only the beginning of a journey full of jokes, memes, and shattered dreams (which could end up serving as a good autobiography chapter title in years to come).
