Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions Voice Acting

Holy shit guys, holy shit. Just logged onto IMDB, and checked out the voice actors for Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions. And I gotta say, AWESOME AS HELL. At any rate, let's run down the voice talent.

Spider-Man 2099:

Playing our favorite Spider-Man of the future is Dan Gilvezan, who supplied the voice for one of the early Spider-Man cartoons, Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends.

Personally, he's not my favorite Spider-Voice, but he played Spider-Man in the 80's, and did a good job of setting the voice for the character. Plus, he's pretty much got classic status at this point.

Spider-Man Noir:

For our resident 30's Spider-Man, we have fan favorite, and my personal favorite, Christopher Daniel Barnes, who played Spider-Man in the well-received 90's animated series.

Personally, this choice made me giddy. I loved that voice actor, as well as the show, so I'm happy to have any chance to hear him voicing Spidey again.

Ultimate Spider-Man:

For the alternate universe that's not really all that different, Spider-Man is played by Josh Keaton, who played Spider-Man in the short lived Spectacular Spider-Man

I really like Spectacular Spider-Man, and it was cancelled too soon. Hopefully we'll get the same kind of vibe from this Ultimate Spider-Man.

Amazing Spider-Man:

The Amazing Spider-Man, the one we know and love, is being played by... Neil Patrick Harris! Yes, ol' NPH played Spider-Man in the MTV CGI series, Spider-Man: The New Animated Series.

This one surprised me the most, because I expected the voice actor from Web of Shadows. I had a little trouble recognizing Harris as Spider-Man when I saw the series, mostly because I was too busy recognizing him as other characters he had done. Now, however, I find he's a pretty good Spider-Man.

As you can see, the voice casting, at least for the Spider-Men, is phenomenal. It's not going to be the trainwreck it was in Web of Shadows. I might actually enjoy the cutscenes.

Anyway, that's my look forward to the voices of Shattered Dimensions. This is the W Defender, signing off.
