Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Captain Marvel with sound clips and images.
Here we have the Goliath in Captain Marvel, one of very few superheroes who can stand right up there with Superman. I'm not too familiar with the character myself except knowing his powers are drawn from magic and the ancient story of King Solomon.

In Justice League Unlimited, he was granted a celebrity voice, one of my favorite actors, Jerry O'Connell. This version of Captain Marvel was clearly younger, still learning to be a hero. So O'Connell did capture the innocence and naivety that the character played in the story. Looking up to Superman and the Justice League, feeling lucky to be part of the team, only to be disappointed.

In Batman Brave and the Bold, Jeff Bennett took on the very short cameo appearance of Captain Marvel, and with what little lines he had, he gave the character strength and valor. He also played out the goofy and campy nature of the show with his "dinosaur" line.

Kevin Delaney played the part in MK VS DC with what I can only describe as a rather typical superhero voice. Rather generic. I felt the same voice could've been used for Superman without any necessary change.

And finally, voice over legend Corey Burton took on the short role in Public Enemies. I think Burton nailed the part. With the origin of his powers coming from ancient mystical times, Burton gave Captain Marvel a voice that was majestic and honorable, much like a knight from Medieval times. Funnily enough, this type of voice sounds very narrator like in the old superhero cartoons, but it seemed to fit the character perfectly.

In my opinion, Jerry O' Conell and then Steve Blum. But I really liked the way Shazam (Captain Thunder in FP) looked in the Flashpoint Paradox; he was cool and his voice wasn't that much heard because he was getting choked in the cliip. Another main look was Injustice; its one of Shazam's best looks.

I'd say Joey is my favorite out of the bunch, I'd love to see him tackle the role again someday!

Rob Lowe made me laugh so I'm going with him. I remember Jerry O'Connell being very good, too.

Anyone think Chris Pratt would be good? He can play those man-child characters pretty well. He does remind me of a kid in an adult 's body on Parks and Rec.

@Polyester Funk didn't even know who Chris Pratt was until Guardians of the Galaxy and the LEGO Movie, but yes, totally agree about him fitting the man-child persona. Captain Marvel would be right up his alley.

Is it weird that I can imagine Sean Schemmel as Captain Marvel? And yes, this is based off of his performance as Goku, I'd say he has experience in playing characters who are pretty much big kids.

@Dark Kuja Very true and I think Sean would differ his voice for Marvel from his Goku

Sean comes off more of a douche football jock than actual Captain Marvel (AKA "Shazam"). I think he was kinda a miscast

@Music Meister That's what Shazam is like in the new 52.
said at 9:40 AM on Mon Feb 3 2014
@GothamRed Does the new 52 make any of their heroes likable
said at 9:48 AM on Mon Feb 3 2014
@Comicfan117 Meh, Animal Man's fine, and Batman's supporting cast (except arguably Tim) are pretty much unchanged personality wise.
said at 11:44 AM on Fri Feb 7 2014
@Music Funny you should mention that, because when I listened to the clip, I thought he could work as Flash Thompson. Sure, he's been portrayed as the Jerk Jock for years(outside of the comics where he's pretty much grown out of it and is now the current Venom), but it seems he would fit.

Pretty interesting casting Joey as Captain Marvel and Black Adam though he's better as the latter IMO.

@Nightmare Crusher I think he reviewed Injustice too, oddly enough.

@Nightmare Crusher LOL, he does. The key difference here is that he can actually act.
said at 11:46 AM on Fri Feb 7 2014
@Nightmare Crusher I meant Joey can act, not the Irate Gamer.

I'm going with Rob Lowe, but Jeff Bennett and Corey Burton were good too.
said at 12:06 PM on Wed Mar 6 2013
Re-watching the episode he was in, Jerry gets my vote easy. But I think Rob and Chad are both great.
Jeff and Corey are way too recognizable, but they work. Shannon sounds even more corny than Burr, but really, thats exactly who Captain Marvel is. Kevin Delany wasn't bad, but forgettable.

@VctrBnsn I thought it was Nolan North at first in the game. Joey did very well I think.
said at 4:23 PM on Sun Aug 4 2013
@VctrBnsn I know. during stage transitions, his scream sounds identical to North's

Rob or Chad?!

I liked him in the YJ episode "Cornered" so I'm changing it to Chad Lowe.

I like Jerry O'Connell the most here. All the others were good in my opinion. If I had to chose the weakest it would probably be Kevin Delaney. He's very bland.
said at 12:41 AM on Sun Apr 22 2012
Jerry O'Connell gets my vote, though the Lowe brothers were good too.

My picks for the "Big Red Cheese" would go like this in no particular order;
Jerry O' Connell
Jeff Bennett
Kevin Delaney
Rob Lowe/Chad Lowe
Corey Burton
and Burr Middleton

From this list, Jeff Bennett and Burr Middleton, hands down, ARE Captain Marvel.
said at 9:50 PM on Tue Nov 29 2011
Oooh, this one's a toughie. Jerry O'Connell and Rob Lowe do pretty solid takes, basically what Billy would sound if he were an adult. Rob Lowe's delivery makes laugh. But, Corey Burton and Jeff Bennett are pretty much what I imagined Marvel to sound like. Burton's voice being the voice a kid would want a superhero to sound like and Bennett being a mix of that and having that sort of childish innocence.
said at 6:43 PM on Tue Nov 8 2011
Jerry O'Connell and Rob Lowe are my faves. While I like Corey Burton as a voice over actor, I think he made Captain Marvel sound too old.
said at 11:21 PM on Fri Oct 21 2011
I decided to vote for Rob Lowe
said at 10:53 AM on Fri Sep 2 2011
Corey Burton is my fav for Captain Marvel. The voice he did for the character is basically something a little kid would do with they got superpowers like Marvel's, anyway, and Billy Baston is a little kid. Thar said, Jeff Bennett and Jerry O'Connell aren't too bad.
said at 12:40 AM on Sun Apr 22 2012
@Anicomicgeek Upon reconsideration, while I still think Corey Burton's good, I'm changing my vote to Jerry O'Connell for Captain Marvel.
said at 8:57 PM on Fri Aug 2 2013

Joey Naber is good, but I think Jerry O'Connell is better, so I'll stick with him.

Burton and Bennett give two pretty great takes. Burton is lovably typical for a character like Marvel, Bennett manages to combine super heroic and child like without making them sound like sepearate characters.

What about Burr Middleton from the Filmation version of Shazam. He gave Captain Marvel a voice befitting a hero powered by the gods.
