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
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
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.
