Voice Compare » Spider-Man » Lizard

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Lizard with sound clips and images.
(Note: This is only for the times that Lizard has actually had a speaking role which as you can see here has happened a lot.)

The Lizard is one of Spider Man's various foes whom has been a foe of Spider Man ever since The Amazing Spider Man Vol. 1 #6 in November of 1963. Lizard is the monstrous alter ego of Dr Curt Connors in which the Lizard was created by Curt Connors' Reptilian DNA experiments on himself. The Lizard is an incredibly powerful and vicious creature in which it has had an occasional sympathetic depiction (due to his alter ego Curt Connors), The Lizard is normally either a mindless savage or an angry creature that is against mankind.

EDITOR'S OPINION

Today on the Spider Man VC section we take another look at another prominent foe of Spider Man namely Dr. Curt Connors' monstrous alter ego... THE LIZARD! Since this is a rather large VC I will simply say that I am not sure which one of these guys will I pick for the role. Whether its the higher Lizard voices such as Dee Bradley Baker and Gillie Fenwick to lower ones such as Rob Zombie and Joseph Campanella they have all done pretty well for this role here in their own way.

Easily going with DBB. It helps that he voiced Lizard the most.

My favorite Lizard is Rhys Ifans from the movie, but I think that Dee Bradley Baker is the best of these, followed by Steve Blum.

1-: Dee Bradley Baker: Mainly for his later performances, but he sounds the most animalistic and intimidating out of everyone here.
2-: Rob Zombie: He doesn't sound monstrous enough and is a bit too subdued, but it's a threatening performance that's still entertaining to hear.
3-: Joseph C: He sounds really hammy and isn't monstrous at all, but I like his voice for the character and how confidently evil he sounds.
4-: Nathan Carlson: Not bad, it's more reptillain sounding than a lot of the other VA's.
5-: Steve Blum: A bit of a disappointment, he should have just taken his Killer Croc voice and made it sound a bit less brutish.
6-: James Arnold Taylor: Admittedly a bit of a guilty pleasure, I like the snake-ish slither he uses, although it obviously doesn't fit Lizard very well.
7-: Roger Jackson: Only fits Curt Connors, it doesn't sound like Lizard at all.
8-: Corey Burton: Completely generic.
9-: Gillie Fenwick: He hammed it up way too much here, the slurs are over done.

1.Dee Bradley Baker-he sounds perfectly reptilian and monstrous,and also does great as dr.connors,and does the role 4 time!

2.Steven Blum-hes tape sound rather crapy,but we all know that with better material and better voice directing he would pull of this role with no effort.However he has to stay away from voicing dr.connors.

As for the others

Nathan Carlson-rather forced monster voice
Joseph Campanella-greatb as dr.connors,but unbelivebly forced as the lizard
Rob Zombie-doesnt sound monstrous in the slightest
Roger Jakcson-same as with Zombie
James Arnold Taylor-COMLETE MISCAST!
Corey Burton-i agree,sounds more like Clint Eastwood

Dee Bradley Baker has the Lizard & doc Connors for some time now so I'm getting a feeling that he start voicing the character in everything from now on since he is the best & the longest actor in the role.

1. Dee Bradley Baker - He always has the best Lizard performance. At least thrice at that!
2. Nathan Carlson - A perfect rendition of Lizard!
3. Joseph Campanella - Very similar to Nathan's take, but with a bit more humanity in there.
4. Rod Zombie - Gotta love how natural he is in this role.
5. Gillie Fenwick - Super campy, but fits the depiction of a reptilian mad scientist.
6. Steve Blum - Hit or miss. When he's good, he's good, but when he's not...
7. James Arnold Taylor - James, it's the LIZARD, not the Snake!
8. Roger Jackson - Why does the Lizard talk like he would as Connors?
9. Corey Burton - Is that a Clint Eastwood impression? Corey, you disappoint me.

Fun Fact: Rob Zombie did not require any preparation to make Lizard sound effects, including growls and hisses.
I honestly wish I he had more of an acting career.

I kind of have a soft spot for Joseph Campanella's take of the Lizard (growing up watching the show does that to you) but I also REALLY enjoy Dee Bradley Baker's performances of him. If I had to choose, I'd probably pick Dee but it'd be REAL close

Honestly most these guys sound unimpressive.

The only good one is Dee Bradley Baker.Between his high-pithced,hissy 2000 lizard and his low pitched 2012 lizard,he sounds very suting for the role,bonus point for doing a great performence as bos dr.conors and his reptilian alter ego and for doing the role not one,but trice.

Rob Zombia sounds to normal,he doesnt have and monstrous feal to his voice.Same case with Roger Jackson.

Nathan Carlson is okay,but kinda forced.Joseph Campanella is completly forced.

James Arnold Taylor was straight out miscasted. His a great VA but there are limits to his voice and giant,humanoid reptiles a far out of his vocal range.

Steven Blums tape is just to distorded to make out his voice but knowing SB his no stranger to doing monstrous voice,so i guess he makes a kickass lizard?

So overall the only stand out performences are Dee Bradlez Baker and ?Steven Blum,the others tried but stil failed flat.

Do any of you guys think that Dee Bradley Baker's USM performance sounds a bit like Scott McNeil? Anyway, his voice is perfect. Intelligent, monstrous, creepy, just all around great.

Nathan Carlson is second best at making Lizard sound monstrous, but it just isn't quite as scary or natural, and it sounds a little too stereotypical. Joseph Campanella gives a good performance, but his voice doesn't sound monstrous or distinct enough. Steve Blum's take is okay. Roger Jackson doesn't sound very monstrous, but he does sound very creepy and intelligent, I like it.

Rob Zombie, Gillie Fenwick, Corey Burton, and James Arnold Taylor are pretty boring to me.

I wish he'd spoke more in the latest episode. He sounded really scary there. Probably would be how he would have sounded in Spectacular well his version I more humane I can picture him sounding more monstrous and more like the modern Lizard. Funny how it's not his Spectacular performance that's making him win but his USM one. Oh the irony.

Time to update my views:

Dee Baker is my new favourite for adding that necessary monstrous and powerful vibes in his voice while also having a tinge of intelligence too: the best of both worlds.

1. Dee Baker
2. Joe Campanella
3. Nathan Carlson
4. Steve Blum
5. Rob Zombie

Dee is Lizard really as he's voiced him for a lot of things. Nathan is 2nd and Joseph is 3rd.

Steve & Rob sound too much like their alter ego cause when Connors is lizard he's supposed 2 sound different.

Gillie did a good job as did James.

Roger doesn't suit the role nor does Corey as he has bein better though i'd say this is one of his earlier roles in his career as a voice actor so I don't blame him for not sounding good.

Dee was good in Ultimate and it's great change from his PS1 voice. I'm curious about which voice he would have used in Spectacular if The Lizard was used again. That being said if Peter Lurie can't play Leatherhead in an episode of current version of TMNT Dee should take over as it reminded me of some of the voices for him.

1. Joseph Campanella. Now This is exactly how Lizard needs to sound: Intelligent, unpredictable and terrifying! He even gets the balance right between Connors his human side and his reptilian side, he gets my vote.

2. Nathan Carlson. He makes a great monstrous and reptilian Lizard, it certainly fits.

3. Rob Zombie. Personally his take on Lizard was very good, it felt sinister and resentful. He even sounds a little like Steve Blum.

4. Dee Baker/James Arnold Taylor. Both too high pitch for Lizard, you'd expect one of the most prominent villains of Spider man to be a little more threatening IMO. Their acting is not bad though.

The rest are pretty much on the same boat as each other.

Fenwick is...alright. I don't have a real opinion on it.

I'm disapointed wit Burton's, it's a little generic and the hissing doesn't fit with the voice

I like Campanella, he gives the animal/reptile side of The Lizard but still keeps Connor's intellgence to him. He was also good for when Connor was in control of the Lizard.

Bradley does the cliche hiss with a reptile character, it's alright but not very rememberable.

Zombie is also good I guess but there's something that doesn't feel right for the voice to me. Dunno why.

The samething with Taylor as with Bradely, cliche hiss but not very rememberable.

Carlson is good if you want The Lizard to be a monster, a good deep and tough voice that still has a reptile feel to it.

Jackson does have a disadvantage from the others, he doesn't do a reptile feel to the character. His version is Connor in control of The Lizard. It's not bad, he has a very intellgent and well spoken feel to his. However I think the voice would fit better for Connor and I wish he did a more reptile or monster approach to the character (I know he could do pretty well considering his other roles).

Gotta hand it to Nathan Carlson on this one. I felt he did a good job as thr Lizard, though Joseph Campanella is good, too. Roger Jackson did a good job as how Spider-Man: Friend or Foe choswe to do the Lizard--which is pretty much Cr. Connors in control of the Lizard's body. Rob Zombie's too for the more sinister and vengeful take on the character the MTV show opted to use.

Dee Bradley Baker was good as the Lizard on Spectacular, but that was mostly growls and roars. As the Lizard in the 2000 games? Well, my problem with Baker and Daran Norris as the vilalins is a lot of them tended to sound more like typical 80s cartoon villains and while the 2000 games were lgihter than the games since, I don't quite the sound of a lot of the villain voices in those games.

Joseph Campanella is clearly the vest Nathan Carlson is second for me and Baker at third and Zombie at 4th. The only reason Baker is winning is because he reprised the role in Spectacular but didn't speak.
