Voice actors assemble!
Worlds Collide - Spider-man voiced by Big Time voice actor
Spider-man's latest story - Big Time
As I was doing some "consumer research" into the latest Spider-man comic story titled Big Time
. I came across a youtube
video off the Marvel
official youtube channel that has linked the words of of both comics and anime with a voice actor that many of us on Anime Vice
are familiar with. Firstly, a little background is needed for any who don't follow comics.
Johnny Yong Bosch goes from shinigami to web-slinger.
I do want to get out of the way that Spider-man
used to be one of my favorite comics. That was until the previous editor-in-chief, Joe Quesada, butchered any potential the comic had to be an actual story when he created his own story, the infamous One More Day (O.M.D.)
arc. In this tale, to make up for his own screw up of revealing his identity to the world, Peter Parker when to the Marvel Universe's
version of the devil to alter the world to get everyone to forget his identity and save the life of his dying aunt. The hero that was based around taking responsibility for his actions shook the hands of the devil and made a deal willingly. The price of that was his marriage. Peter's marriage to Mary Jane and events involved were just erased from continuity. Quesada's rationale for this story breaking arc. He didn't think Peter Parker should be married. Rather than a divorce. He had a deal with the devil that erased decades of continuity and character development. Ever since, I've been boycotting all Spider-man
comics as long as Quesada was attached.
If you are wondering why in this trailer they talk about a new Spider-girl. That's because the previous one was Peter Parker's daughter in the future. After O.M.D.
, that character was wiped completely from continuity and replaced with a current time line character.
You are probably questioning why I was doing consumer research on a comic series I say I'm boycotting. Well, I am a huge fan of the current artist, Humberto Ramos
, lead artist of Crimson
. I've been considering just buying this story in the trade paperback.
As I was surfing youtube
looking into Big Time
. I came across a trailer. I thought I would give it a shot, but the first voice I heard was unmistakable. I've been hearing it for years in dub work on some pretty big animes. Now, I haven't been able to confirm this independently, but the voice of Spider-man in this trailer is non other than the voice English dub voice of Vash the Stampede
, Ichigo Kurosaki
, and Lelouch Lamperouge
. You got it, Johnny Yong Bosch
Johnny does a pretty decent job as Peter Parker. Though, don't think this means your comics are going to be talking to you. This is just a trailer to promote the story's publication. I will say, my favorite Spider-man voice is still Neil Patrick Harris
