Activision has reached beyond the typical videogame voice actor talent pool and right into Hollywood for its upcoming Marvel Comics titles.
Val Kilmer is set to voice baddie Walker Sloan in Spider-Man: Edge of Time, with Laura Vandervoort (Supergirl from TV’s Smallville) as Mary Jane, and Battlestar Galactica‘s Katee Sackhoff as Black Cat.
And remember that show Heroes, and actor Milo Ventimiglia? He’s voicing one of the three new mutants in X-Men Destiny. He’ll be joined by Jamie Chung (an actress who kicked off her career on MTV’s The Real World: San Diego) and actor Scott Porter.
Both games are scheduled for a fall release, and are going to be that much better now that Hollywood actors are bringing its characters to life.
