AI art showing Sonic the Hedgehog flying together Top Weapon 2Maverick and Chicken. It’s been a big year for all three characters, with Sonic the Hedgehog 2 release in April and Top Weapon 2 in May. Both films were lauded as worthy sequels to expand on the success of the original films. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 became the highest-grossing video game film in the United States, while Top Weapon 2 made more money at the global box office than any previous film in the career of star Tom Cruise.
The two films also introduce new characters to their respective franchises. After appearing briefly in the credits of the first film, Tails played a major role in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, with Idris Elba also making his debut as Knuckles. Meanwhile, Top Weapon 2, set 36 years after the original film, features nearly all of the new characters, including Rooster (Miles Teller), Hangman (Glen Powell), and Penny (Jennifer Connelly). Rooster and Maverick’s relationship plays a huge role in the film, as Rooster is the son of Maverick’s best friend, Goose, whose death is a pivotal moment in the original film.
Now, AI-generated art created using the mini-program DALL-E imagines Sonic the Hedgehog flying with Maverick and Rooster in Top Weapon 2. That makes for an unexpected crossover, which can be seen below.
The DALL-E mini program has increased in popularity in recent times, with users typing in whatever prompt comes to mind. It’s a lot of fun for TV and movie fans, with the ability to produce everything from a Moon Knight dressed as Batman to Captain America holding Baby Yoda. It’s a neat way to imagine unexpected characters crossing paths when they would likely never appear on screen. Some AI art is more believable than others, but it always provides an overview of what the audience might expect if that prompt comes alive at some point.
In the case of Sonic, Rooster, and Maverick, the combination of animation and live-action will usually be jarring. However, because of the two Sonic the Hedgehog the film uses a mix of CGI and live-action, it works pretty well. Considering Sonic’s impressive speed and other valuable skills, it seemed like he would help Rooster and Maverick in their game. Top Weapon 2 missions, though he may also serve as an unnecessary distraction at times. Of course, since Sonic is unlikely to meet Rooster and Maverick, it’s hard to know for sure how their interaction will turn out.
