    I'm confident he will be.

    Personally, I don't think Eggman's much of a character, so it was kind of a perfect opportunity to bring back 90s "human cartoon" Carrey but as a villain. A lot of the critics agree... this movie largely works because Sonic works and Carrey works. I have one critic friend who pretty much enjoys the film entirely because of how ridiculous Carrey is in it. And I think all the side characters are solid enough and serve their purpose.

    Can't wait for more Carrey in full Robotnik form and more Sonic and friends.

    Well, I think he is awful here, and I like Jim Carrey. My best friend and brother also thought he was rather horrible. So, we all have our opinions. Sonic Boom Eggman is a far better take on the character imo. Especially as he is a character, not just Jim Carrey being a shell of what made him popular in the 90s.

    Eh. Boom Eggman was too silly for my tastes. Carrey could've played Eggman as a total goofball, but he didn't, which makes me happy. Carrey played him as a cold hearted jerk determined to catch Sonic at all costs and study him for the sake of furthering his knowledge and boosting his ego.

    This movie was the 'Genesis' of Eggman anyway. He's human in this film. But by the film's end we get a quick tease of how crazy he will become if we get a sequel.

    Yeah, to each his own. I can certainly see why Carrey's very Carrey antics would bother some here.

    I guess as soon as I found out he was in the movie, this was pretty much what I expected. But as CJ points out here, there is a bit of an interesting mix between Carrey's outlandishness and his cold-heartedness in the role. Also kind of loved how bluntly the film drops his bully back-story but doesn't at all try to justify Robotnik or make us sympathize with him in the slightest (an anti-JOKER approach, if you will)

    Carrey was a mixed bag for me, in some moments he was too OTT but in others he was quite cold and sinister. Hopefully he can grow into the role.

    Some interesting tidbits from the screenwriter of the Sonic Movie, Patrick Casey. Apparently Jim is down for wearing a fat suit in a sequel. Patrick Casey thinks he'll get an allergic reaction to the mushrooms and get fat by them.

    It might be a while. The movie still has not been released on DVD or BluRay yet. Also, hasn't been released theaterically in Japan or China.

    I think we will get a sequel it just might take some time because of this virus.
