Marvel's Super Hero Squad Has A Huge Voice Cast
I have to say that I'm not crazy about Marvel's The Super Hero Squad Show cartoon. My reason is mainly because I feel Chris Giarrusso's Mini-Marvels would have been a better choice. I tried reading the first issue of the Super Hero Squad comic with my daughter and it unfortunately just didn't compare. I know that the comic and this show aren't necessarily geared towards someone my age but my daughter (who is now six) loves Mini-Marvels but was a little bored with the Super Hero Squad comic. Perhaps the show will fix that.
The show is set to premiere on Cartoon Network in the U.S. on September 19, 2009. I've already posted a music video for the show HERE. Geek Tyrant posted the following image with all the voice actors that will be involved:
I have to admit that this is pretty impressive. I will do my best to remember to check this out. It is worth a look. Something has to be said since so many actors are on board with this project. Hopefully they will manage to make this appealing to all ages rather than just the average little ones.
What do you think? Are you going to give this show a try? Does that voice cast impress you? What do you think of the actors lined up? Are there any that seem spot on or just crazy?
I thought the music video what a spoof like the What The? stuff. I didn't realise this was a real show! Looking at that cast list, it looks more like a dream wish-list.
Anyway, Mini Marvels would have been more fun, but this is the 1980's way of marketing; produce a cheaply-produced over-priced toy and then create a cartoon based on said cheaply-produced over-priced toy ;)
That's an impressive line up of voice actors. I especially like the choice for Galactus, I know it doesn't make sense, but Sulu does have a distinct and gravelly voice. Which I believe would work for Galactus, if Orson Welles was still alive he would have to be Galactus, you know do him and Unicron.
I also like how they got guys like Ray Stevens to do the Punisher's voice and Mark Hamill for Red Skull.
Will Rhodey stop mid-flight and go into a Reading Rainbow segment? Bad joke. Something tells me they'll make Misty Knight way over the top. Yeah, like everyone else, Takei as Galactus could be epic or epic as in epic weird. Interesting they chose Iceman himself to voice Iceman. Hamil and Englund, frikkin' awesome. However I wonder how the heck they will portray Punisher in this one.
Wow, I didn't realize that there was even a show coming out. I saw the toys inside the store, and didn't know they had anything to do with a TV show.
I also dug the background music for the video of the show. *Inside head at least for the next few hours*
Oh, I'll try to remember to catch the show on the 19th. Who wants to bring the popcorn?
