Great actor but disappointed Bang Zoom wasted his talent on Laws of the Universe a year too early. He would've been amazing in One Punch Man had it been union but instead it was one of the most underwhelming dubs in a while with who was cast instead...

"Spidey's not a disease that needs a cure. He's more than just a random bug bite, too. Spider-Man is who I am, My destiny."

@EPA Deane Did you really need to add somehow in your wish for him to reprise Spider-Man one day?

It's not like he's banned forever from reprising Spidey.

@8000 Saiyans I know that... It's just it's just that it has been YEARS since Josh Keaton has voiced Spider-Man and his take is Getting Constantly Obscured by people dismissing his take by Saying that The Spectacular Spider-Man is Overrated.

The thought of the Show's 10th Anniversary is On My Mind.

@EPA Deane Care to provide evidence that his take on Spider-Man is getting constantly obscured by people?

As far as I'm concerned, his take is more loved than hated, to the point that they act as if he's the only one who should play Spidey.

@8000 Saiyans Some forums I read say that Everything about The Spectacular Spiderman is overratted.

Seeing a show you love being torn by harsh criticsm can have an effect on you.

@8000 Saiyans I Also think he's unlikely to reprise the role anytime soon because Robbie Daymond appears to be the DeFacto voice for Spider-Man at the moment in Video Games and Animation.

On that Note I genuinely like Robbie Daymond's Rendition, but It took me longer to enjoy his Performance than Keaton's.

Happy bday Josh Keaton

It`s great that after many years he finally got to return to the spidey franchise but as his arch baddie Norman Osborn in the 2017 cartoon. Despite opinions on the show as a whole. Keaton is definetly one of the standout performances.

It`s cool he also appeared in strech armstrong reuniting him with his spectacular spider-man coworkers.

Happy bday.

@EPA Deane Depending on how things go Harry might be the one to become the goblin...unless Norman uses his son's glider for himself

@EPA Deane He kills it as Norman. Look up a clip with him in it.

As for Goblin, I feel like something like his performance as Destroyman (particularly the laughs) would work really well.

You know, it's silly of me, I used to think Josh Keaton was overrated, but looking at his resume here... yeah it's the exact opposite!

Even Jason Marsden and Eric Bauza have done more work than he, and it's certainly penuts compared to Johnny Yong Bosch.

Josh, dude, sorry for taking you for granted man. You deserve more credit than I thought.

Happy Birthday Josh Keaton!

My top 10 favourite roles from him are:

1.) Spider-Man/Peter Parker (The Spectacular Spider-Man)
2.) Shiro (Voltron: Legendary Defender)
3.) Hal Jordan (Green Lantern: The Animated Series)
4.) Manhunters (Green Lantern: The Animated Series)
5.) Destroyman/New Destroyman (No More Heroes)
6.) Ryu Hayabusa (Ninja Gaiden 2)
7.) Orion (Justice League: Gods And Monsters)
8.) Flash (Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths)
9.) Moon Boy (The Super Hero Squad Show)
10.) Jack Darby (Transformers: Prime)

He really had a fantastic year last year, especially with his performance as Shiro in Voltron, it made easy second, I still think of Spidey when I think of Josh a bit more but Shiro is probably one of his greatest performances to date.
said at 7:58 AM on Thu Feb 8 2018
Josh continues to do an amazing job as Shiro in Voltron: Legendary Defender despite the awkward direction they've taken with the character as they wanted Shiro to be missing for much longer and was only brought back earlier because of toy sales but that said, Josh's performance as Shiro in the Season 3 episode "The Journey" is nothing short of incredible. The amount of pain Shiro went through in that episode, is performed brilliantly by Josh. I think it's some of the finest voice acting Josh has done in his career thus far.

Also great is that Josh also voiced an alternate universe counterpart version of Shiro named "Sven" which was a great reference and brilliant to the original Voltron: Defender of the Universe dub. Josh apparently only had one night's notice that he would be doing Sven to be able to make the Swedish accent work but I thought he nailed it. I thought he was hilarious especially with the line "Take me to space hospital." XD Even I got that reference.

Outside of Voltron, Josh this past year got to perform on the massive playing against type roles in his career thus far. Voicing Norman Osborn of all characters in Marvel's Spider-Man. I so didn't imagine my favourite Spider-Man VA playing Norman (my favourite Spidey villain), it's a bit weird at first getting used to the role but it's a pretty inspired casting choice. I mean if Ultimate Spider-Man got Christopher Daniel Barnes to voice Electro and other incarnations of Spidey, sure why not with Josh?

It was also surprising to hear Josh Keaton in his roles in the new Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters cartoon playing the arrogant jock/school bully types, definitely some good playing against type for him as well.

It's great that a lot of Josh's roles this past year have all been playing against type or really stretching what Josh is capable of performing the past year. Josh Keaton is one of those VA's who just keeps getting better and better each and every year. Hard to believe he'll be 40 next year.

Happy Birthday Josh Keaton!

@oliv5528 Likely because the people behind that show had someone else in mind. Actors aren't entitled to reprisals, so oftentimes different creative heads calls for different actors.

@The Doctor Um... I'm sorry, but that sounded just like his normal voice except slightly deeper. I'm not trying to be mean and I know he was just improvising to keep the joke flowing (and for that purpose, it worked fine) and he wasn't seriously trying to give his best take on Batman, but still, it didn't sound fitting for a legitimate Batman voice at all.

@PsychicVoiceSpy Well I was only half serious. In one hand, I just thought it would be funny thing to point out. On the other hand, if Josh can do pretty good comedic Batman impersonation on-spot, it would be cool to see what he could do with enought time to try serious take on the character.

The One and Only Spectacular Spider-Man! as well as Green Lantern Hal Jordan and Jack Darby.
said at 4:19 AM on Mon Feb 8 2016
As I've said before he is phenomenal as both Spider-Man and Green Lantern Hal Jordan, his Jack Darby was good too.

However I still cannot get over the whole Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes re-dubbing controversy and it's a shame since 2012 he hasn't been given another chance to reprise Spidey. Maybe once Jeph Loeb's influence dies down maybe they'll give him another shot one day? I hope.

I also loved his other performances including Robin, Orion, The Flash, The Manhunters (a really epic playing against type role), Captain Marvel/Mar-Vell, Moon Boy, Cyclops, Human Torch, Destroyman and Ryu Hayabusa.

I think it's pretty cool that he's finally now voicing in an anime series and as the main character in The Laws of the Universe franchise. I hope he'll voice in a regular TV anime series some day. I think Josh voicing in anime is a natural good fit honestly.

Happy Birthday Josh Keaton!
