The Paramount video game adaptation, in which the actor plays the villain, was delayed after a fan outcry.

Jim Carrey is speaking out for the first time about backlash over his upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie.

The film was delayed by three months after the first trailer was widely mocked on social media over the character design of Sonic, the popular Sega video game character being voiced by Ben Schwartz. In March, Sonic the Hedgehog director Jeff Fowler said the Paramount film would now open Feb. 14, 2020 while the team retooled the character’s look. Carrey plays the villain Robotnik in the film.
