THE Neil Patrick Harris voices a Spider-Man in Shattered Dimensions

Back when Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions was announced, the developers teased that each of the four different Spideys in the game were going to be voiced by actors that had played him before. Upon hearing that, my mind immediately went to my favorite Spider-voice and one of the greatest actors living today, Neil Patrick Harris or NPH to fans. Harris played Peter Parker in the early 2000’s MTV series, and now, just in time for Comic-Con, Dr. Horrible has been confirmed, along with the rest of the cast of arachnid men.

Along with NPH, who’s the classic Amazing Spider-Man, Josh Keaton, who was Spidey in the recent Spectacular Spider-Man cartoon, is playing Ultimate Spider-Man (fun fact: Keaton is like a less famous Nolan North, as he had major roles in tons of games, like Ninja Gaiden, Kingdom Hearts and Metal Gear Solid). Noir Spider-Man is voiced by Christopher Daniel Barnes, who was the starring voice of the mid-90s Spider-Man cartoon, plus he was in the Brady Bunch movie and Disney’s the Little Mermaid. Rounding out the cast is Dan Gilvezan as Spider-Man 2099, and he’s quite the veteran, with big parts in ‘80s toons Transformers, GI Joe and the campy classic Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends.

Lastly, Marvel and Activision finally confirmed that Stan Lee will be narrating the whole thing, and we’d have it no other way. With this news and the info we got from the most recent preview, the September 7 release date can’t come soon enough.

    The game looks effing mind-blowing; I can't wait to get my grubby lil' hands on it.

    Dang, now I'm excited!! Josh Keaton AND Stan Lee? Are they really trying? Could this be the Arkham Asylum of Spider Man?

    I'm glad Christoper Daniel Barnes is in this, I loved the 90's Spider-Man show, and I loved his voice acting in the series, so that is really a welcome addition to the cast! :)

    Neil Patrick Harris goes from playing a boy genius to a mad scientists to a super-powered wise cracking genius in spandex. There are worse things to be type-cast as than a genius,I suppose.

    I am so glad Toby Mcguire is not there.
  • Spacegrass - July 24, 2010 2:59 a.m.

    I'm surprised Toby McGuire isn't gonna be in it, it's not like he has anything better to do these days. CAPTCHA: Kirsten Sample. Odd coincidence, that.

    I really enjoyed the recent "Spectacular Spider-Man" series because it basically, in my opinion of course, took the best parts of the main- and Ultimate- continuities and worked them into a completely new continuity as well. As far as this game is concerned, it's literally sounding more and more like an amazing Spider-Man game!
  • TheWebSwinger - July 24, 2010 12:23 a.m.

    I don't like NPH, if only because of how awful How I Met Your Mother is. Also, his voice didn't really fit as Peter Parker in MTV Spider-Man, frankly...
  • Ultimadrago - July 23, 2010 11:54 p.m.

    Great. However, they should keep Spider-man straight...unlike Neil over here.

    true story

    There better bee a unicorn easter egg somewhere in this game.
  • BigLandoz - July 23, 2010 11:04 p.m.

    Glad that Josh Keaton is involved. Enjoyed his work in "Spectacular Spider-Man"

  • HeroOfLegend - July 23, 2010 10:09 p.m.

    That fucking kicks ass.
  • oryandymackie - July 23, 2010 9:51 p.m.

    What's he doing with that unicorn?
  • DarkTone - July 23, 2010 9:23 p.m.

    Thats a good move. Also, what are the gang doing at 0.32?
  • k1ng94 - July 23, 2010 9:22 p.m.

    It's gonna be legend-... wait for it... and I hope you're not lactose intolerant because the second half of that word is DAIRY!
  • Psyphos - July 23, 2010 8:46 p.m.

    @FlikNightshade I smell GOTY.
  • FlikNightshade - July 23, 2010 8:39 p.m.

    Maybe Spider-Man will do a line of coke off of a strippers ass now too!
