And now for this fairly famous and infamous character in Spider-Man whom can go from lets just say "overly ill-tempered" to a sweet young lady. But regardless of which version you know of her, Gwen Stacy will be the next Spider Man character on the VC.

In the 1994 Spider-Man series Gwen originally wasn't even going to appear on the show due to how it might complicate on what folks know of her in the comics. However later on in the 1994 series Gwen did get to have at least one appearance (but it was due to Spidey getting to go to another dimension) but still in '94 Spider-Man series episode "Spider Wars, Chapter 2: Farewell Spider-Man" she was voiced by the late great Mary Kay Bergman. Anyways while this characterization of Gwen Stacy might seem strange as she is the fiance of the fairly Tony Stark-esque Armored Spider-Man, but Mary did do well with this take on Gwen as I certainly had no problem with her performance overall.

Though Gwen didn't get another voice-acted role until The Spectacular Spider-Man where she is a cute little lady whom is a caring friend to the likes of Peter Parker and Harry Osborn. Anyways unlike the '94 Spider man series Gwen was quite the regular in this show and was voiced by fairly known actress Lacey Chabert and I must say like the show itself I am pretty impressed. Lacey Chabert's performance did certainly fit this take on Gwen as a cute though nerdy young High school girl rather well and I find it to be one of Lacey's best performances.

Overall both are very good but I am going with Lacey here (but to be fair Lacey got to voice this role considerably longer).

They're all decent compared to some of Mary Jane's voices

Out of all of these I like Lacey's soft cute voice the most, it's just too bad her character development in that show is so... stereotypical nerd to hottie

A close second is Dove who is pretty distinct herself

Mary is pretty good for her brief role

HOnestly with the other two I prefer Laura more, Kari was a bit older than I expected

Given that they've voiced the character more, I go with both Lacey Chabert and Laura Bailey. Everyone else sounds good.

Laura is my favorite Gwen (funny since she is only second fav for Spider-Gwen), she just sells the emotion so well and just has this likable charm to her.

Laura Bailey is my favorite, I can't wait until she's put up on the poll.

My ratings:

1. Lacey Chabert- She brings out the right amount of nerdiness and enduring to portray the character. She also has great chemistry with Josh Keaton.
2. Dove Cameron- Easily one of my favorite performances on Ultimate. She NAILED the character hands down. I'm also hoping that she'll be MCU Gwen when the time comes but that's another story.
3. Mary Kay- A bit rusty and old at times but manages to be snarky and smart all the less.
4. Kari Wahlgren- She's very bland all things considered. Not perfect, but not something you'd be thrilled about.
5. Laura Bailey- Abdullab summed things up nicely for me although I do have some other issues. She uses her Rise voice for the character and it feels a bit to stereotypically cutesy and doesn't have much chemistry with Robbie Daymond. The stupid feminist propaganda the showmakers are so obviously trying to shove in our face doesn't help either (and this is coming from a proud feminist BTW).
said at 9:18 AM on Sun Apr 8 2018
@Abdullab I would've chosen Sarah Williams, Janice Kaiawaye, Mae Whitman, Jessica DiCicco or Erika Harlacher myself TBH. Laura was a nice choice on paper but only that which is a huge shame.

I think all of Gwen`s VAS did good with what they had and each have their own element in the role that made them standout.

Lacey was excellent in SSM. She also had really great chemistry with Josh Keaton. If i had to pick a fav it would be her.

Mary Kay did well on her guest spot in the 90s Spider-man show.

Dove Cameron was easily a highlight from Ultimate Spider-man. I have a huge dislike for the show`s high use of disney channel stars in voiceover as they don`t sound good to put it nicely but Dove really proved me wrong.

Kari is a better Gwen Stacy than she is Mary Jane. I enjoyed her alot in the game. I know she could even be better if she got to reprise without voicematching Stone.

I think the weakest would be Laura while I do consider Gwen one of her better Marvel roles. Her chemistry with Robbie, I don`t see a spark like what the other actors did with their spideys.

VC thoughts update

I really like Dove Cameron the most here. She sounds pretty sweet and like someone you would like to hang around with.

Mary Kay Bergman also fits pretty well in the role. She does sound like a friendly and easy-going girl and her delivery is solid.

I liked Lacey Chabert's performance, but I feel it's too Debra Whitman-esque (especially since her overall performance reminds me a lot of Liz Georges' Debra). Still, not bad.

Kari Wahlgren does a pretty good Emma Stone impression, and I wish she could reprise the role just to hear her do her own thing.

Laura Bailey is pretty good. Fifth place, but honestly, I feel all these actresses did a good job. Gwen has had it really good with performers.

" I know that we all think we're immortal, we're supposed to feel that way, we're graduating. The future is and should be bright, but, like our brief four years in high school, what makes life valuable is that it doesn't last forever, what makes it precious is that it ends. I know that now more than ever. And I say it today of all days to remind us that time is luck. So don't waste it living someone else's life, make yours count for something. Fight for what matters to you, no matter what. Because even if you fall short, what better way is there to live?"

Gwen Stacy is a Character that usually works better in Media Adaptations of Spider-Man media and the Ultimate Marvel Universe than in the Main comics .

Also Killing her off in the Ending of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was a Stupid Call on Marc Webb's part.... but that Goes Without Say.....

Anywho.... Here are My top 5 Favourite Gwen Stacy Voices:

5. Kari Wahlgren
4. Mary Kay Bergman
3. Laura Bailey
2. Dove Cameron
1. Lacey Chabert

Future VA Suggestions:

For a Ultimate Marvel inspired Version of Gwen, Willow Johnson would be perfect if she used a similar voice to her Tamako and if she used a Lighter version of her Yukari Uchida she would be a Solid fit for a Traditional version.

Brittany Snow's Namine voice would also be a great fit for a traditional or Intellectual Gwen if she was given the Right Direction.

Dove is actually pretty good as Gwen here. A very sweet, if not a smidge too young sounding, voice and performance.

I'm actually stuck between her and Lacey over who I prefer. I guess I lean a bit toward Lacey, but Dove still made a solid first impression

Nobody is 100% perfect but I think the late Mary Kay Bergman comes the closest. She sounds kinda like how I would imagine she'd sound from the original comics despite how different her depiction was.

Lacey Chabert was wonderful in Spectacular Spider-Man as the more geekier Gwen.

Kari Wahlgren I know could have done this role a bit better if she wasn't trying to voice match Emma Stone.

My vote goes to the late Mary Kay Bergman at least till someone new comes in and fits the role perfectly.

BONUS: I know this might be the ultimate stretch but what if Kristen Bell voiced Gwen? I dunno I think she could pull her off perfectly. I could also Gwen being voiced by Rachel McFarlene (as I find she and Mary Kay kind of sound similar), Ashleigh Ball, Laura Bailey and maybe even Cherami Leigh working?

Don't think any is perfect, Mary's too stuck up, Lacey's too quiet, Kari's channeling Emma Stone doing an average impression.

My ideal Gwen is Teresa Palmer, cause of her Becky from Sorcerer's Apprentice, and Jay should be Peter Parker too.

@pete I'd also like it if Sarah Chalke was Gwen, with Zach Braff as Spidey.

I only wish the late Mary Kay Bergman had more screen time with Gwen then just one episode, but those monkeys at the network wouldn't allow Gwen to appear because of her death.

Lacey Chabert really made me love the character, when ever I think of Gwen Stacy now, I'll think of her voicing Gwen.

Now regarding the latest voice actress to voice Gwen Stacy, Kari Wahlgren does a fair job voicing Gwen, but I still love Lacey Chabert's performance better.

All Vas are excellent in the role, but the late Mary Kay Bergman is the best fit for Gwen Stacy IMO.
said at 2:03 PM on Tue Apr 29 2014
@Fulgore2005 Really? She sounds kind of stuck up and mean to me. That version of Gwen isn't even like the original, I don't see how she's the best fit with that being the case. Just my two cents.

@atlien To be fair, I don't believe that clip is the best example of Mary's work. But it's just my opinion.

I'm going with Kari on this one. I think Lacey did a good job, but it's the same case where her voice only works with that show's version of the character and not the character overall like her Zatanna voice.

I don't really hear Emma Stone is Kari WAhlgren's performance.
said at 3:21 PM on Tue Oct 8 2013
@Anicomicgeek It's in the way she makes the voice sounds somewhat deep and throaty. It's not a total impression, more like she's emulating her.
said at 9:21 PM on Tue Oct 8 2013

Or it could be be a typical voice from Wahlgren seeing as she's voicing characters with a similar voice before.
said at 9:32 PM on Tue Oct 8 2013
@Anicomicgeek She's done characters with many voices.
said at 9:42 PM on Tue Oct 8 2013

True, but it still doesn't the fact that she really doesn't sound like she's channeling Emma Stone.
said at 9:46 PM on Tue Oct 8 2013
@Anicomicgeek @Anicomicgeek To you, maybe. To me it does. Just like she was channeling Kirsten Dunst as MJ in the Spider-Man 3 video game.
said at 9:48 PM on Tue Oct 8 2013

Dunst, I'll give you, but she's channeling Stone here as much as she's channeling Angelina Jolie as Tigress in Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness, which is to say, not really.

@Galactic_Cyrus She sounds way too light to be Emma Stone

Lacey did a really good job for once it's her best role yet.

Kari does a good impression of Emma Stone so I hope there will be more games based on the reboot series.

Mary pretty good, shame the character wasn't in the series full time.
