Meet the voice actors of ‘Marvel’s Spider-Man’

These voice actors put the 'Oomph!' in 'Marvel's Spider-Man'

Marvel’s Spider-Man for PS4 is finally out and the internet can’t stop buzzing about how great it is. We’ve hinted that it might be one of the greatest superhero games to come out yet, and a good amount of that credit has to go to the spot-on character portrayals by its voice actors. Here’s a list of the most popular characters in Marvel’s Spider-Man along with who they’re played by and what work they’re known for.

Yuri Lowenthal as Peter Parker

Known for Ben Tennyson in Ben 10: Omniverse and The Prince in Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones

Judging from the incredible voice acting in Marvel’s Spider-Man, Yuri Lowenthal is the real Peter Parker. He perfectly captures Parker’s quips and quirks transforming what could’ve been just another superhero game into an authentic Spider-Man experience.

Tara Platt as Yuri Watanabe

Known for work in World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth, and Washimi in Aggretsuko

Taking on the role of Spidey’s confidant and insider at the NYPD, Tara Platt does an awesome job taking on Yuri Watanabe’s sassy, sarcastic demeanor and keeping the banter between her and Spider-Man light, witty, and entertaining.

Travis Willingham as Wilson Fisk

Known for Thor in Avengers Assemble, Harvey Dent in Batman: The Telltale Series, and Frederic-104 in Halo 5: Guardians

It takes some real talent to tackle the voice of New York’s most powerful and menacing mob boss, Wilson Fisk, but Travis Willingham does the part justice. With a voice that’s deep, calculating, and intimidating, he has no problem sounding like a true supervillain.

William Salyers as Otto Octavius/Doctor Octopus

Known for Rigby in the Regular Show: The Movie, Mordin Solus in Mass Effect 3, and Joram Talid in Mass Effect 2

Otto Octavius starts Marvel’s Spider-Man with the impression that he is a well-meaning boss who supports the hardworking Peter Parker. But, that demeanor eventually changes and William Salyers’ voice acting abilities captures Octavius’ transition from good to evil with ease.

Darin De Paul as J. Jonah Jameson

Marvel’s Spider-Man – Just the Facts: MARVEL’S NEW YORK | PS4

Known for Reinhardt in Overwatch and various work in World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth and God of War

You’ll hear the voice of J. Jonah Jameson a lot during your adventures in Marvel’s Spider-Man. That’s because he’s a well-established reporter behind a popular podcast in NYC that absolutely hates Spider-Man. You would think that the voice actor Darin De Paul really has it out for old Spidey but he’s just a really good voice actor.

Nancy Linari as May Parker/Aunt May

Known for Aunt May in Spider-Man TV Series, Computer in Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance and Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty

Nancy Linari is a natural at capturing the good-hearted nature of Peter Parker’s Aunt May and it makes sense — she’s played her before in the Spider-Man TV Series.

Stephen Oyoung as Martin Li/ Mister Negative

Known for Cayde 6 in Destiny 2: New Legends Will Rise – Live Action Trailer and Nord from Elder Scrolls Online

Martin Li also known as Mister Negative plays a part in the Sinister Six. Like most criminals, he harbors a grudge against Oscorp and forces his way into a position of power so he can commit heinous acts behind closed doors. Stephen Oyoung, who’s the voice actor for his character is exceptional at capturing the duality of Martin Li in Marvel’s Super-Man.

Laura Bailey as Mary Jane Watson

Known for Angela Miller in Resident Evil: Degeneration and Selina Kyle in Batman: The Telltale Series

We’ve seen a great many interpretations of Mary Jane Watson but this is the best one yet. It might have to do with Laura Bailey, a force in the voice acting community, who has this uncanny ability to capture Mary Jane’s spunky personality, especially the part where you hope she doesn’t break your story.

Nadji Jeter as Miles Davis/Miles Morales

Known for Sam from The Last of Us and Miles Morales in the Spider-Man TV Series

Lots of Spider-Man fans were hype when they found out that Miles Morales was going to be making an appearance in Marvel’s Spider-Man for PS4. Though Morales doesn’t play as Spider-Man in this universe, he still has a pretty big role in the story. Nadji Jeter who voice acts Morales has perfected this character, more than likely due to his previous work as the same character in the Spider-Man TV Series.

Erica Lindbeck as Black Cat

Known for Futaba Sakura in Persona 5, and Dr. Jane Foster in Avengers Assemble

Listening to the sultry voice of Black Cat over the voice recorders in Marvel’s Spider-Man would drive anyone to wonder who the woman behind the mask is. Erica Lindback is the one responsible for all those flirtatious messages and will be returning for The City that Never Sleeps DLC.

Brian Bloom as Taskmaster

Known for Captain Nick Reyes in Call of Duty: Infinity War and William B.J. Blazkowicz in Wolfenstein: The New Order

You’ll hear the dulcet robotic tones of Taskmaster as he makes several convoluted attempts to take down Spider-Man. We mean it when we say that the best part about interacting with Taskmaster is his voice (and the Spidey suits you can get with his challenge tokens) masterfully done by the talented Brian Bloom.

Keith Silverstein as Hammerhead

Known for his work in the Naruto anime, Sonic the Hedgehog, Overwatch, and many more

Hammerhead is the main antagonist in The City That Never Sleeps DLC saga. This brutish villain is a thorn in Spider-Man’s side and proves to be one powerful adversary over the course of the saga. Silverstein’s gruff performance makes Hammerhead even more menacing.

Stephanie Lemelin as Screwball

Lemelin has appeared in dozens of TV shows including Young Justice, Bones, and NCIS, and video games, Sunset Overdrive and Fallout 4

Screwball is constantly setting up challenges around Manhattan for Spider-Man to complete, all in the name of increasing her follower count. Lemelin perfectly portrays a character that is designed to annoy Spider-Man at every turn. Really, it’s quite impressive.

Nichole Elise as Silver Sable

Known for her work in The WiseGuys and WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2011

Hired by Norman Osborn for protection, Silver Sable’s task force presents a major problem for Spider-Man in the main adventure. Elise’s acting chops were put on display in Silver Lining, the finale to The City That Never Sleeps DLC saga.

Short Order Cook

Spider-Man PS4: Stan Lee Cameo Cutscene

Voiced by Stan Lee, known for his work on literally every Marvel thing ever

We couldn’t skip out on the token Stan Lee cameo in Marvel’s Spider-Man for PS4. As usual, he shows up in the most pedestrian, unexpected places. This time around, he plays a Short Order Cook at the diner MJ and Peter rendezvous at. Watch the entire cutscene above.

How to change suits in Spider-Man 2
Spider-Man soars through the air in a biomechanical suit in Marvel's Spider-Man 2.

Everyone knows the iconic Spider-Man suit. The red-and-blue spandex uniform has been iterated on and altered hundreds of times over the course of decades, leading to some similar and some very different designs. Spider-Man 2 introduces Venom and the symbiote suit to the mix as a plot point, but there are almost 70 total suits from various comics, shows, and movies to unlock and wear between Peter pParker and Miles Morales. Unlocking them is one thing, but changing between them, and their new styles, is another. With this guide, you will be able to change your spider style as fast as our heroes when duty calls.
How to change suits

Once you've snagged your first additional suit and used some Tokens to unlock it, changing between them is a breeze. Simply open your menu, go to the Suits tab, and highlight the one you want to wear. If you want to switch between Peter and Miles, simply hit L2 or R2 to cycle between the Spider-Men since each has their own unique set of suit options. Press X on the suit you want to wear and -- bam! -- your Spider-Man is now decked out in a new style. However, that's not all. Many suits have additional styles you can unlock by spending some Tech Parts. These give you three additional color options for that specific suit to further customize your look.

Spider-Man 2 Just Let Go trophy guide: Where to find the science trophy

There is no shortage of collectibles to gather and activities to do in Spider-Man 2. From photo-ops to Prowler Stashes, the map is filled with icons showing you where to go to find just about anything you need. One thing that isn't marked on your map, however, is a very special collectible for Miles Morales. This isn't required for any specific quest, and won't give you any XP, but it does reward you with the Just Let Go trophy that is necessary if you want to get the coveted Platinum trophy. With no clues as to where to find this tiny science trophy on the massive New York map, you could spend hours swinging around looking. Instead, we'll show you exactly where to look so you can check this trophy off your list.
How to get the Just Let Go trophy

The science trophy we're looking for is in the southern part of the Financial District on a church. The exact location can be seen above, but the church itself is impossible to miss once you're in the area. When you reach the church, climb up onto the roof behind the main steeple and look up at the small balcony running around it. If you're close enough, you will see the small white circle indicating that there's something you can interact with there.

Where to find Aunt May’s grave in Spider-Man 2
Peter visiting his aunt and uncle's graves.

Peter Parker has had a hard life. He was orphaned by his parents as a child and raised by his caring Aunt May and Uncle Ben, only for Ben to be killed in an act that would shape Spider-Man's entire philosophy as a hero. Things only get worse during the events of the first act of Insomniac's Spider-Man 2 as Aunt May is tragically killed as well, leaving Peter with no more true parental figures. Peter hasn't forgotten all his caring aunt and uncle have done for him, and if you can find their gravesite, he will pay them respect, as well as earn you a Trophy. It's a big graveyard, though, and their site isn't marked on the map. Here's where Uncle Ben and Aunt May's graves are located in Spider-Man 2.
How to find Aunt May and Uncle Ben's graves

The graveyard is located at the most-northeastern point on the New York map in Harlem. If you have unlocked fast travel in this district, you can warp almost directly to the spot. Once in the graveyard, go forward down the middle into the open field. You might spot Mile's father's grave first. May and Ben's graves are directly to the right of that.
