03/01/2012 - Voice Cast Announced for Marvel Super Hero Squad Online
12:54 pm pst
and Marvel Entertainment Announce Entire Cast of Characters Have VO
Extensive Cast of Voice Actors Unveiled for Marvel Super Hero Squad Online
March 1, 2012 – Let’s talk! Providing voiceover for every hero and villain in an online game is an immense
undertaking; most developers don’t attempt to give their games that much personality. However, for a universe as rich
as the world of Marvel and a roster of heroes as star-studded as the Super Hero Squad's, making the effort is worth it for
the millions of Marvel fans around the world. That's why Gazillion Entertainment and Marvel Entertainment announce today that
the entire cast of characters, current and upcoming, in Marvel Super Hero Squad Online will have voice.
Heroes and Villains in Marvel Super Hero Squad Online have always had their own unique personalities and attitudes,”
said Jay Minn, Vice President and Studio Manager for The Amazing Society. “But when you give these characters actual
voices, they really come to life. There is so much that can be done with dialogue that simply can’t be done with just
animation. We’re excited and very proud to let our heroes and villains speak their minds!”
Hero Squad Online currently features over 70 Heroes and 20 Villains, each having their own voice in the game; that’s
over 3000 total lines of dialogue. Some of the biggest stars of the Marvel Universe will feature dozens of spoken lines.
That chatterbox Deadpool has over 100 of his own lines! Fans of the Super Hero Squad TV Show will recognize some of these
voices, as the game will have most of the same actors, including:
Tom Kenny (Iron Man, Captain America, MODOK)
Alimi Ballard (Falcon)
• Antony Del
• Charlie Adler (Doctor.
• Dave Boat (Thor, Thing)
• Grey Delisle (Ms. Marvel, Enchantress)
• Mikey Kelley (Silver Surfer)
Steve Blum (Wolverine, Abomination)
Tara Strong (Scarlet Witch)
Additional actors include Marvel voiceover veterans Chris Cox, Laura Bailey, and Phil Lamarr.
