Posted Wed, Feb 08, 2012 by Martuk

Many recent online games have begun to utilize more talented voice actors for characters and story. The most notable being Star Wars: The Old Republic, which is an entirely voiced MMORPG. But this week Gazillion Entertainment has revealed an extensive list of voice actors that will lend their voices to the characters of the Marvel hero-based Super Hero Squad Online.

In today’s press release, Gazillion revealed that the more than 70 heroes and 20 villains in Super Hero Squad Online will have a voice. The game thus far includes over 3000 lines of dialogue from actors that include: Tom Kenny (Iron Man, Captain America, MODOK), Alimi Ballard (Falcon), Dave Boat (The Thing, Thor), Steve Blum (Wolverine, Abomination) and many others.

You can learn more about the game and sign up to play on the Super Hero Squad Online website.


Extensive Cast of Voice Actors Unveiled for Super Hero Squad Online

Gazillion Entertainment and Marvel Entertainment Announce Entire Cast of Characters Have VO

SAN MATEO, Calif. – February 28, 2011 – 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.

“The 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!”

Marvel Super 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 Rio (Reptil)
  • Charlie Adler (Doctor. Doom)
  • Dave Boat (Thor, Thing)
  • Grey Delisle (Ms. Marvel, Enchantress)
  • Mikey Kelley (Silver Surfer)
  • Steve Blum (Wolverine, Abomination)
  • Tara Strong (Scarlet Witch)
  • Travis Willingham (Hulk)

Additional actors include Marvel voiceover veterans Chris Cox, Laura Bailey, and Phil Lamarr.
