In 2018, Idris Elba was named the sexiest man in the world by the American People magazine. This honor is given only to the most handsome of the most handsome men, which was almost everyone who had a flexible boy band haircut in the 80s and 90s, George Clooney and Johnny Depp in the 2000s, and in particular zero echidn.
Poor, non-sexy Knuckles, Sonic’s friend, has never been a sex symbol, although he probably has his fans. So, with the award-winning sexy Idris Elba confirmed as the Voice of Knuckles, will we all love it after watching the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog sequel? Will we all have to struggle with entangled feelings for an animated anthropomorphic cartoon?
No, according to Idris Elba, no. Elba told ScreenRant that he tried to soften his natural charm in his performance:
“Under the contract, I can’t say anything. But I wouldn’t say he was sexy. I don’t think I’m going to do this. That’s for sure”.
Now the question arises: can Idris Elba actually turn off its inherent attraction? Are we all doomed to fall in love with Knuckles the echidna? Only time will tell when the sequel to Sonic will be released in 2022, which, by the way, will be in just two months.
Then go on: is Idris Elba too handsome to turn off her sexuality? Has Knuckles always been sexy? Let us know your thoughts in the comments … if you dare.
