During the interview with Comicbook, Carrey revealed what it was like playing Dr. Robotnik and how the experience compared to portraying The Riddler in Batman Forever (1995).

“Well, I think I think they’re both basically spinning. They’re both spinning in the tree of knowledge. They’re leaping from branch to branch and falling occasionally. I wouldn’t put one against the other. I think they’d be a great team. But you know, it’s like Robotnik and every super villain basically comes from a place of neglect with a feeling of absolute worthlessness that manifests itself in in magnificent creations that are designed to control the world, put their brand on everybody, and maybe even get inside your bloodstream with some nanotechnology occasionally.”

Based on the popular video game franchise of the same name, Sonic the Hedgehog was directed by Jeff Fowler and stars James Marsden as Tom Wachowski, Tika Sumpter Maddie Wachowski, Neal McDonough as Major Bennington, Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic, and as mentioned above, Carrey as Dr. Ivo Robotnik.
