But it’s not like our Mr. Wolf is a super bad wolf like the one in The Red Riding Hood, somewhere inside his heart he is a good person. He helps people. He becomes happy when someone praises him. And he felt like changing when Professor Marmalade told him that he and everyone else can have a chance at it. But will that be simple? Not at all. From the looks of the trailer, it will include more and more car chases and a whole new villain who is super good at fights and somersaults in mid-air.
