Marvel's Super Hero Squad Has A Huge Voice Cast

Posted by G-Man (19152 posts) - - Show Bio

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?

Sulu is Galactus!? Awesome, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to take the character seriously again. Haha.

Stevenson, Sorbo, Knight, &Ashmore & the guy from Elm Steet make sense to me the otheers I'm iffy about bc I haven't seen enough from them or just never payed attention to them or gave a damn

I don't know if Hamill has done any cartoons recently, but its good to see his name on another cartoon. He was awesome as the joker.

Hamil and Takei!
This makes me happy.  Sulu-Galactus will be epic.

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 ;)

I'll check it out.  The voice actor list is pretty impressive, the only one that gave me pause was George Takei as Galactus.

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.

Hamill and Ashmore? Heck yes.

#16 Posted by HaloKing343 (1252 posts) - - Show Bio

Lena Headely and Mark Hamill. Those two are unexpected. I like them though. This should be cool.

#17 Posted by Arkangel0 (18 posts) - - Show Bio

Jordi La Forge, Matt Parkman, Luke Skywalker, Hercules, among others.....who would miss that?

 Shawn Ashmore as
Who ever the casting director is, he/she has clout! This could be an ensemble cast for an epic movie.

They have some characters in there that I didn't expect to show up.  All these veteran industry people must see something in it.  I might have to see this.

Pretty impressive cast!

This show might be worth a crap  if it's got a cast like that.

And you'll have an excuse for watching it too!

I'll watch it just to see how they can make Punisher work in a show like this. And Ray Stevenson voicing him is just awsome.

Without Emma Frost I'm not really interested in this series, but it's no big loss. I'm hardly their target audience. lol

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?
