INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
In advance of their big panel on Saturday at Comic-Con International, video game company Activision has announced several of the voice actors who will bring their two big fall Marvel releases to life.
According to the press release from Activision, Iceman will appear in Spider-Man: Edge of Time — not the amazing friend of the same name, but Val Kilmer of Top Gun, Batman Forever and Heat fame. Kilmer will voice a character named Walker Sloan. In addition, Battlestar Galactica alumni Katee Sackhoff will voice the Black Cat, while Smallville‘s Supergirl, Laura Vandervoort, will voice Mary Jane. They join Josh Keaton as the voice of Spider-Man and Christopher Daniel Barnes as Spider-Man 2099.
Former Heroes star Milo Ventimiglia, The Real World, Sucker Punch and The Hangover Part II‘s Jamie Chung and Friday Night Lights star Scott Porter will voice three playable mutant characters — Grant Alexander, Aimi Yoshida and Adrian Luca — in X-Men Destiny.
“These amazing casts of talented Hollywood actors help bring the rich storylines of Spider-Man: Edge of Time and X-Men Destiny to life,” said Vicharin Vadakan, director of marketing, Activision Publishing. “Players this fall will get to control the destiny of their own mutants or save Spider-Man and through this voice talent feel like they are part of the action.”
Comic-Con attendees can see the stars from Spider-Man: Edge of Time and X-Men Destiny at the Activision Marvel Video Games Panel where they will join legendary comic creator Stan Lee, Marvel writer Peter David and Beenox Studio Head Dee Brown, among others, to discuss the latest Super Hero adventures and their roles in the upcoming video games. The panel will take place on Saturday, July 23, at 10:00 a.m. in room 5AB. Show-goers who visit the Activision booth (#5445) will be among the first to get their hands on both games.
