I know that years ago I already did a ranking of all of the Spider-Man voice actors, but since then I have watched through shows that I had previously only seen random clips or scattered episodes, played couple of games and there have been new additions to the compare. Plus, I feel that I could express some of my old opinions better.

1. Josh Keaton
Yeah, my opinion about Josh isn’t changing anytime soon. For me, Josh is the definitive Spider-Man and even better than Tom Holland’s live-action iteration. He has great youthful voice, but he can also sound more mature/older when the project requires him to (Edge of Time and MvC3 are proof of that), but most importantly he nails all the different aspects of the character’s personality. He can be joking and self-confident Spider-Man, geeky and loveable Peter Parker and angsty young man with the weight of the world on his shoulders.

2. Neil Patrick Harris
The popular opinion is that he was mediocre on the New Animated Series, but got better in Shattered Dimensions. In my opinion, he was great from the day one. Neil did good job as slightly older Peter, who still had a lot to learn and doesn’t always make the right choices, but has his heart in the right place. And he gave all the Spider-Man scenes snarky sense of humor and energy. It’s a real shame that MTV had that weird “no old people” – mandate, since I think a scene between Neil’s Peter Parker and aunt May or uncle Ben could have been brilliant.

3. Yuri Lowenthal
Yuri started out just OK, but got better after each reprise and I can’t wait to see what he has in store for us in the PS4 game. When you want a hero with a boyish voice, Yuri is your guy, but he never makes Spider-Man sound too cool or confident, remembering who is under the mask.

4. Sam Riegel
I despise Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker in the first TASM movie (he got slightly better in the sequel), so it’s a real pleasant surprise that I enjoy his stand-in for a movie tie-in game so much. Sam has fitting voice for the role and gives it slightly neurotic touch.

5. Andrew Francis
Andrew has perfect voice for the role and even with limited screen time gave the role a lot of personality. Would love to see him reprise (get ready for me saying that a lot).

6. James Arnold Taylor
James is an obvious choice for a role like that, but he didn’t phone it in or anything like. Maybe he isn’t my ideal Spider-Man voice personally (nothing wrong with him, that “something” just isn’t clicking right), but he fits the role and I’m 100% sure that he could also be great Peter Parker.

7. Quinton Flynn
Quinton gives the role great sarcastic sense of humor and wiseacre personality, making great Spider-Man. However, I’m not too sure that he could work as Peter Parker. Maybe that’s an unfair criticism, since he never has gotten a chance to voice Peter, but Peter Parker is arguably more important side of the role than Spider-Man, so I can’t help, but to take it into account.

8. Andrew Toth
I love how Andrew isn’t using the most obvious voice for this role (i.e. something geeky and slightly high-pitched), but it still fits perfectly and he captures the personality pretty well with the little material he had. Would love to see him reprise.

9. Erick David
I see some serious potential with Erick, but he definitely needs some work. If he fine-tuned the voice, got some actual dialogue and better direction, he could be great. Hopefully he gets to reprise someday.

@The Doctor 10. Christopher Daniel Barnes
OK, I know that I’m probably becoming infamous on this site for how I feel that CDB is overrated as Spider-Man and his popularity comes more from people’s nostalgic love for the show than him actually being great. I still stand by most of my old opinions. His acting ranged from stiff to hilariously over-the-top, killing the genuine emotion of most of the serious scenes. HOWEVER, after I watched through the entirety of TAS, I grew a soft spot for him (as you can probably tell from me lifting him higher from my original ranking). Let me break this down to few bullet points:

First, I did like him more and more as the series went on. Whenever he actually got better or I just got used to him, I’m not sure, but credit where credit is due.

Second, I will not bring up the (in)famous “SHOOOOOOOOCCCCCCKEEEEEER!!” moment against him ever again. That was just him trying to make the Symbiote-Spidey sound more unhinged and while we can argue whenever that was effective acting choice or not, it does not reflect his overall performance on the show and it was unfair of me to treat it otherwise.

Third, he didn’t have the best material to work with. Now, I’m not talking about the overall writing of the show or the execution of its story-arcs (although, both had plenty of flaws on their own right), but Spidey’s lines specifically. Endless inner-monologues, recaps after recaps of previous episodes, constantly stating his emotions out loud and Captain Obvious – levels of expository dialogue would be next to impossible make sound natural. I doubt that even Josh Keaton, or any actor from this voice compare, could make the scripts CDB had to work with sound amazing.

Plus, if nothing else, at least he was memorable in the role. Maybe not always for the right reasons, but sometimes that’s better than just being bland.

11. Robbie Daymond
Robbie is kinda just doing the bare minimum the role requires. The voice is very typical “Spider-Man voice” (I have seen dozens of youtube videos, where people use this exact voice for Spider-Man) and his performance isn’t all that memorable. By no means bad, but I will always forget him when going through all the Spider-Man voices in my head.

12. Cole Howard
Cole’s voice is on par with Robbie’s, but his performance is little weaker. His comedic delivery seems to come down just talking really fast, which isn’t all that funny in my opinion. I could see him being decent with better direction, but he is nothing amazing right now.

13. Tom Kenny/Chris Edgerly
It is hard to make them out, but they sound little bland. I’m sure that both could be great (especially Tom) under better circumstances and I would love to see them reprise the role someday.

14. Tobey Maguire
I’m the biggest defender of Tobey Maguire on the planet and I think he was solid as both Peter Parker and Spider-Man in the movies. However, there’s no denying that his voice is very monotone, making it next to impossible to translate his live-action performance to voice-over. Some of his charm shines through every now and then, but most of the time he leaves a lot to be desired.

15. Benjamin Diskin
Kinda typical “smartmouth” voice/performance. Nothing wrong with it, but doesn’t feel anyway specific to Spider-Man. I’m sure he could do better with better direction and I would like to see him reprise.

@The Doctor 16. Rino Romano
A lot of people rank Rino amongst their favorites and wish that he would reprise someday, but after watching through Unlimited I don’t understand why. I mean, he wasn’t awful, but he was kinda forgettable and he tried little bit too hard to make Peter Parker sound “cool.” His performance in PS1 games wasn’t anything amazing either. I don’t hate him or anything like that, but I don’t understand his popularity either.

17. Patrick Chilvers
The voice is fine and he is completely adequate for what the material required from him.

18. Ted Schwartz
I don’t think that it’s too unfair to say that even by the 80’s a lot of superhero cartoons were still cast by the logic that every male superhero has to have deep voice and bombastic personality (not saying that all of them were like that, but a good number of them were). So, the fact that 80’s Spider-Man show went with someone who had adolescent voice and personality shows that people making the show understood what made the character unique when he was created. Sadly, Ted’s acting left a lot to be desired, since most of the time he was really monotone and sounded whiny.

19. Dan Gilvezan
Dan sounds a tad too old (or at least too deep) for the role and his delivery was little bit too much like your typical radio serial hero, which can be charming on its own right, but doesn’t fit Spider-Man.

20. Mikey Kelley
Perhaps not the worst possible casting choice in the World, but his “surfer dude” – voice just doesn’t fit Spider-Man.

21. Paul Soles
Where’s Gilvezan had slightly unfitting voice for the role and felt little bit too much like a serial hero, Paul goes overboard in both regards. I guess there’s still certain charm to his acting, but it doesn’t feel like Spider-Man at all.

22. Alistair Abell
The voice would be fine, but he makes Spider-Man feel too unlikeable, even considering that he is working with fighting game trash talk.

23. Mike Vaughn
Dear God, after playing through the game, I feel so embarrassed for being so lenient on him in my original ranking. Most of the game, no matter how dramatic or serious the scene is, Mike sounds like he doesn’t give a dam and is about to fall asleep at any minute.

24. Milo Ventimiglia
It feels kinda weird to rank Milo with everyone else, since he is playing such a different version of the character, so you can’t really judge him by the same standards. But honestly, he is so bad that I don’t feel too bad for putting him this low. It’s just way too obvious that he is just some pretty boy trying to sound rough and badass that it almost feels like a parody of the trope. Not to mention, his acting overall his pretty darn stiff. His Wolverine had all the same flaws and no one liked him in that role, so why the hell Marvel would cast him again in a similar role?

25. Drake Bell
Look, I know that there’s this unfair stereotype that if you like Josh Keaton, but hate Drake Bell, you are just blind SSM – fanboy who hates everything that isn’t SSM and need to learn look at things without biases, but I’m not going to sugarcoat my feelings. Drake Bell was awful Peter Parker and Spider-Man! His voice was too whiny and annoying, his comedic delivery sucked, his attempts at genuine drama were mediocre at best and his Spider-Man never felt like responsible hero. And don’t tell me that I never gave him a fair chance or that he was better when the material was better. I watched the entirety of the first season of USM and couple of the first episodes of season 2 when they first came out, took a look at bunch of clips from various later episodes, checked out the first Spider-Verse arc out of curiosity and recently rewatched his quest spots on AEMH. Even at his best, his was below average and I’m not going to miss him.

26. Geoff Boothby
Sounds too old and the performance is really forgettable. Granted, a minor roles in a motion comics (which don’t always have the largest talent pool or the greatest direction to begin with) aren’t usually anything to write home about, but even by those standards this wasn’t very good.

27. Sean Marquette
I don’t want to be mean, but this is easily one of the most annoying voices I have ever heard. Right up there with Will Friedle’s Deadpool. I know that his voice is probably more realistic teenager voice, but it is just too high-pitched for me. To be fair, his actual performance probably isn’t the worst out of everyone here, but he is so unpleasant to listen to that he gets the lowest point by default.

I've been warming up to Josh Keaton's portrayal more and more to the point where whenever I read Spider-Man in a comic, its always his voice.

P.S. He uploaded these videos to YouTube a few years ago where he read 60s Spider-Man memes in his Spider-Man voice and its probably some of the funniest stuff I've heard ever. It reminded of just how perfect of a Spider-Man he is.

Spider-Man is undoubtedly, to me, one of the most human superheroes in comic book history. Whether the everyman struggling to get by or the CEO running his own company as the MU's "Steve Jobs", Peter's always been challenged by responsibility; he's never had it easy, he's won some, he's lost some... and that's what makes him such a wonderful and relatable hero. And a lot of these actors really do grasp this in different ways.

For me, however, Josh Keaton still continues to edge out as the definitive Spider-Man for me. Whether the troubled, but brilliant, high school student as portrayed in "Spectacular Spider-Man" or the young man fighting to save his future in "Edge of Time", Josh has brought a charm, charisma and depth to Peter that blows me away every time. He has a great sense of comic timing, he can really deliver the depressive moments without ever overdoing it, there is this true universality to the different faces and aspects of this character I love that Josh Keaton naturally evokes. And that still makes him my favourite, even now.

Yuri Lowenthal is definitely my second favourite here, in terms of coming the closest to a universal take. Yuri's always had a knack for voicing youthful heroes and, in every performance, it shines through that he truly loves Spider-Man. There is so much heart and passion he puts into his performances, as well as humour, that - no matter what title it is - when I learn he is voicing Spider-Man for it? I feel a little joy. Cannot WAIT to hear him in Spider-Man [2018] fully.

Quinton Flynn, Neil Patrick Harris and Rino Romano, for me, are perfect adult Spider-Man. They each capture a maturity and confidence in Spidey that bring home the fact that this is a more experienced vigilante; they are fantastic with the comic delivery and bouncing off of whatever character they're on screen with.

Robbie Daymond is an absolute joy as the teenage Spider-Man. While the series does overplay the scientist side a little, Robbie is great at capturing Peter's intellect without falling into the pitfall of a stereotypical "geek" voice. Moreso, his Peter has a natural awkwardness to it befitting the character in his early years, which REALLY sells it.

I also love Cole Howard, Sam Riegel, Christopher Daniel Barnes, Tom Kenny, Chris Edgerly, James Arnold Taylor, Benjamin Diskin and Andrew Francis. CDB's hammier ake is still a classic that holds up, however, I actually prefer him as other iterations of Spider-Man nowadays, such as Noir and 2099, both of whom he played fantastically.

There are really only three takes I am not too big on, in all honesty. Drake Bell... I get what they are going for, but I feel he's always trying TOO hard and his take doesn't really sound like a relatable everyman as Spider-Man SHOULD. Tobey Maguire, I always felt sounded stilted and awkward in all the wrong ways, even in the live-action movies. And Mike Vaughn... he really just feels like a miscast for me.

My vote goes to Josh Keaton, followed REALLY closely by Yuri Lowenthal. But nigh everyone here does a bang up job in their own way!

CASTING CALL: How has Will Friedle not ever gotten to voice Spider-Man? Terry McGinnis was basically a delinquent Peter Parker and - as Ron, Bumblebee, Lion-O and others have shown - he would nail so many different stages and ages of the character. Max Mittelman likewise; he'd be great as the teenage Spider-Man especially, but his Saitama has also sold me on his ability to voice an older take. Brad Swaile, Joshua Seth, Johnny Yong Bosch, Elijah Wood, Mike Sinterniklass, Justin Briner, Jason Liebrecht, Bryce Papenbrook and Jason Spisak would all also be fantastic. And, for a more out there idea... Miles Luna as well. His Jaune Arc in RWBY feels like a natural mix of Josh and Robbie that, for me, would work really, really well for Spidey.

It is pretty funny you mentioned Miles as a casting for Spider-Man because a while ago there was a joke of a Rooster Teeth caster Spider-Man series. I went with Michael Jones as Spider-Man myself.
Lion's Edge
said at 2:24 PM on Wed May 9 2018
@Music Meister Huh. That'd be interesting. Though, personally, I feel Michael Jones would fit better as either Iceman or Human Torch; could see him really pulling off their cheesy 'cooler' personalities well, whereas Miles clicks more for me with Peter and his character arc.

But I DID NOT know about that; thanks man!

I`ll be honest. I don`t believe in a best actor for Spider-man in general. with every hero u are expected to be portrayed a certain way with Spidey I don`t see that but u have to remember an important elements to keep with his portrayal is humanity.

Spider-man relates to all of us, a human who deals with problems, he has his bad days but he also has his good days. He is us that`s why we love him. He`ll be the underdog we root for to come out top.

Every actor has a unique charm to their portrayal, They portray spidey as they want to and that I believe is a crucial element in making their performances as him stand out. Even if some of them are dated but it`s dated in the right way that I just love them.

So I won`t vote for this compare. I`ll just say i love the quirks they brought to the webslinger when they got their turn

Allright. I know I have posted a lot here, and I am sure some people are sick of seeing me, but I figured i would divulge more reasoning behind my rankings. I think, as far as mainstream comic book heroes go, Spidey has one of the best catalogues of voice actors. I would say at least 10 of these guys are either really good or legitimately amazing, so choosing my top five is really hard. However, Spider-Man is my favorite character of all time, and I could talk about him for hours, so here we go.

1) Josh Keaton is the best. He sounds so natural, excells at comedy and drama, and gave just a generally really good performance. He's my favorite because I think his portrayal fits almost all versions of Spider-Man. He's perfect for a teen Peter Parker, he's perfect as the older, married Peter, and he's perfect for anything in between. He feels kinda definitive to me. he's the voice I hear whenever I read the comics.

2) Yuri Lowenthal is my second favorite. I think Yuri is great. Pretty much everything I said for Josh also counts for Yuri. I think I slightly prefer Kosh only because A) I think he delivers the one liners in a slightly more comedic fashion and B) I think nostalgia for watching Spectacular Spider-Man as a child plays a role here too ;). Anyways, Yuri is excellent and I can't wait to see him perfect the role even more (he's been voicing Spider-Man in smaller game projects for a while).

3) Neil Patrick Harris is the perfect older college aged Spider-Man. His comedy timing is great, and his dramatic chops are on point as well. His big draw is that, unlike Josh and Yuri, I think he really only works as an older Spider-Man. His voice just sounds too old to really be believable as a younger, kid Spidey.

4) Christopher Daniel Barnes lands here. I know this is blasphemy for some, but I think the previous three are slightly better. Christopher Daniel Barnes is very well cast, he does comedy and drama well and his voice just has that natural, Spider-man quality to it. THe only reason Christopher ranks this "low" (he's not low at all when you consider that this section has 28 actors) is that his acting is kinda hokey and cheesy at times. I know that this is part of the charm for some, but I think the previous 3 just give slightly more refined performances. Christopher is still fantastic though, and he is pretty iconic in the role.

5) Robbie Daymond really impressed me in the new series. Unlike these other guys, Robbie has gotten to portray Peter's entire journey, from the dorky kid attending an Oscorp science demonstration to a respected superhero. Robbie's acting is strong, and, once again, he nails the comedy and drama. The big think that weighs him down slightly for me is mainly that he doesn't quite nail the youth of the character. There are some lines where it's obvious that he's an adult actor doing a kid voice. Plus, once again, nostalgia plays a factor here, and some of the above choices are ones I grew up with, wheras I didn't hear Robbie's take until I was already an adult.

There ya go.

@Matt Parker "CDB is hokey and cheesy"

Except that most people have the same misconception you have, that it's more due to the material he had to work with than his actual acting. Him being hokey has more to do with the script, not his voice.
Matt Parker
said at 11:17 AM on Sun Apr 22 2018
@OminousFlare That's fair. To be honest, the five I listed are pretty much equally perfect and it really depends on who you grew up on and whatnot. I was explaining my reasoning. CBD is still perfect in the role, I was just trying to justify why I personally prefer the other three.

Ohhhh I've been seriously wanting to do this compare for a while but was waiting for Daymond and the others to be added so now they're here, off we go I guess.

On top of the list is Josh Keaton who needs absolutely no explanation whatsoever since everybody else has given him praise but he pretty much is THE best Spider-Man voice.

Christopher Daniel Barnes follows suit since he was the Spidey voice I grew up and he did fairly well throughout the 90's series even with some pretty bad dialogue he had to deal with, same goes with Rino Romano who had to work with an abysmal series but once again managed to pull through with a great performance in both Unlimited and the Neversoft game.

Robbie Daymond trails behind them and he's probably one of the best newer voices though he's let down by the material in places especially with that science talk at the start of the series that could have been toned down. He however is great when he's more snarky and emotional and I even enjoyed him in the otherwise awful MvC: Infinite.

Although his performance has kinda aged a bit Paul Soles was pretty good at the time, Andrew Francis is solid though he sounds surfer-dude esque at times, Tobey Maguire translates well from film to games but can sound stilted at points (though that's just me) and Quinton Flynn, Ben Diskin, Sam Riegel, Neil Patrick Harris, Cole Howard plus Yuri Lowenthal surprisingly fit well.

Of course we have the upcoming PS4 game where Yuri will truly be playing Spidey so here's hoping he nails it.

And not caring for the other ones.

Erick David sounds like he's forcing himself to do the voice and it comes off as distracting, Drake Bell was good in Heroes but was phenomenally let down big time by the material in Ultimate which is a shame because if Marvel had played their cards right Drake could have fit so well (ah well at least we'll see him in KH3 anyways), Mike Vaughn sounds too whiny, Ted Schwartz and Dan Gilvesan sounds too old for the role and Sean Marquette (to me) just feels so miscast sounding obnoxious and somehow even more whinier than Vaughn and even Bell combined.

Probably missed out on some other voices but they range from good to poor.

It's still CDB for me at the top. Keaton's fine as a young Peter Parker, but whenever I read the comics with the adult Parker/Spidey, Barnes' voice still comes to mind, especially when I'm reading the webslinger's quips. Barnes' joking voice in TAS just cracks me up a little more than Keaton.

Andrew Francis fits Spider-Man very well, but like MM said, he sounds a little surfer-dude like. Would love to see him reprise.

Erick David.. tries. He sounds like he's focusing more on the voice than trying to sound natural, resulting in his voice sounding very stilted.

Robbie Daymond is a great choice and sounds solid, yet I kinda hope the material he gets soon is better than what he's getting right now.

Cole Howard sounds great, I don't know if there's anything else to be said except.. does he sound like Danny Kaufman as Danny Phantom?

Andrew is an incredibly natural choice and he's got a lot of charisma in the role. I'd put him pretty high honestly, he's a lot of fun.

Erick sounds a little too forced to me. Something about it feels like he's trying way too hard to make it sound youthful which makes it come off kind of awkward.

Robbie is another natural choice I think, though I think he sounds a little too old for the high school age Peter. His delivery can be a bit weird sometimes and it doesn't help the material isn't all that great, but he's decent.

Cole is decent. His delivery also sounds somewhat off at times, but like Robbie he's got some charisma in the role that makes it entertaining enough.

Andrew Francis is a pretty natural choice, the only real issue is there is a slight "surfer twang" to his voice (not as obvious as Mikey's) but besides that, he works.

Erik David has a fitting voice but his performance has a "I'm acting" sound to it. Some lines even sound like he's channeling Chandler Bing from Friends.

Robbie is a great choice: he can be funny, serious and nails the technobabble. Up there with one of the best Spidey voices.

Cole just oozes Spider-Man, he was a perfect choice. He just is pitch perfect for Web-Head. Again, another for my top faves.

Robbie Raymond was pretty impressive in part 6 of the Origin shorts.

He's great with the snark and the emotional moments. If they tone down the science talk, he'll truly be great. He was also pretty good in MvC Infinite.

@Shaun Ince @NCZ Robbie did play Spidey in Disk Wars, so it's a possibility. IMHO he's a nice choice & could use more reprisals. As could Kaplan's Magneto, Keith's War Machine, Freeman as Loki, heck, the majority of recasts for DW (& to an extent Heroes) would easily be great for the 2017 show. Hopefully it's also done at Studiopolis so we have Simone supervising & recommending. I think that'd be awesome.

"Whatever life holds in store for me, I will never forget these words: "With great power comes great responsibility." This is my gift, my curse. Who am I? I'm Spider-man."

I find it Really Sad these days that I can't enjoy the Regular Spider-Man Comics anymore. Peter Parker is A character that has been ruined for me since 'One More Day' and its following storylines....

Anyway, Enough Complaining... Here are My Top 5 Favourite Spiderman Voices:

5. Andrew Toth/ Dan Gilvezan/ Yuri Lowenthal
4. Neil Patrick Harris ('Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions' Performance> 'Spider-Man: The New Animated Series' Performance)
3. Christopher Daniel Barnes/ Quinton Flynn
2. Rino Romano (Video Game Perfomances> 'Spider-Man Unlimited Performance)
1. Josh Keaton

Future VA Suggestions:

Sebastian Arcelus would Be Fantastic as Spider-Man, working as either a Teenage or Adult version. I'm thing something similar to his Yoh Asakura voice would be great.

Elijah Wood would also be solid, using a similar voice to his Shay from 'Broken Age' Or His Spyro voice.... I'm Genuinely surprised he hasn't voiced Spider-Man yet....

I also Recommend Aaron Dismuke, Steven Yeun, Joshua Seth and Rami Malek.

2. Josh Keaton( He nails the youthful Peter Parker and voices this character with a large amount of charisma)
3. Drake Bell ties with Rino Romano(Yes i put Drake at number three because he really does do well as spider man and he's quite underrated, Rino Romano is good if not better than Drake and i think he did spectacular in spider man 2000 and spider man unlimited)
4. Tobey Maguire(Gosh this guy is underrated these days i think he is the best live action spider man however he didn't start out voicing the character so he gets number four)
5. Yuri Lowenthal(This guy sounds great while not as good as the others he still manages to do awesome)
6. Neil Patrick Harris and James Arnold Taylor(Well Neil had a rocky start with the new animated series i mean he didn't sound too much like spider man to me but afterwards in shattered dimensions he was awesome. James is really good he gets the pitch down really well and doesn't over do it)
7.Quinton Flynn(Axel is that you?Sounds a lot like Axel(since he voiced him in kh) but he fits peters snarky personality)
8.Sam Riegel(Couldn't they have just gotten andrew garfield instead of this guy i mean he's not terrible there are times were he does kinda okay but he's kinda annoying sounding)
Can't say much for the rest..

I seriously can't be bothered to rate all of these guys. Many of the VAs who portrayed Spidey over the years suit the character fine whether he's just Peter Parker or your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. Josh Keaton, Sam Riegel, James Arnold Taylor, Quinton Flynn, and Christopher Daniel Barnes are my personal favorites, with honorable mentions being given to Patrick Chilvers, Rino Romano, Tom Kenny, and even Drake Bell. Quick side note: regarding Chilvers, he was actually the first Spider-Man voice I ever had the pleasure of hearing in full, even if he didn't have a lot of material to work with in the Capcom vs. Whatever series.

Paul Soles is my favorite. He manages to differentiate his Peter voice from his Spidey voice, but unlike Bud Collyer's Superman (whose real voice is that when he's Superman), Peter is Spidey's real voice. His Peter does sound like a nerdy, meek teenager with bad luck, but when he becomes Spidey, he makes his voice sound more heroic and confident. Plus, he's a lot of fun in the role. His snarky one-liners are always hilarious. But he could also be pretty emotional too (like in the origin episode).

Dan Gilvezan is another really great Spidey. He's tons of fun, he has great chemistry with Frank Welker's Iceman and Kathy Garver's Firestar and he also can nail the emotional moments.

Drake Bell, I know a lot of people dislike his take, but I actually really enjoy it. It's a nice out-of-the-box choice and he's pretty off-the-wall too.

Christopher Daniel Barnes is really awesome as Spidey. Boy, he really managed to deliver a more troubled Peter than we usually see, which is really interesting, but he also has his fun moments.

Josh Keaton, although I really disliked Spectacular Spider-Man, delivers a great performance as Spidey. He's youthful and energetic, but he also has his emotional moments.

I also enjoyed Patrick Chilvers, Rino Romano, Tobey Maguire, Alistair Abell, Quinton Flynn, James Arnold Taylor, Mike Vaughn, Ben Diskin, Neil Patrick Harris, Yuri Lowenthal, Milo Ventimiglia, Sam Riegel, Andrew Toth, Chris Edgerly and Tom Kenny. They all fit the webhead really well.

Ted Schwartz is a good choice for Spidey, but holy crap, he was really wasted here. He does deliver the one liners nicely, but he sounds depressed most of the time, and it really doesn't help the already depressive tone of the show.

Sean Marquette, Geoff Boothby and Mikey Kelley are kinda one-note.

The UVA that played Spidey in the Spider-Woman cartoon (best guesses: Vic Perrin, Bruce Miller and John H. Mayer) has a fitting voice for Spidey, but his delivery is pretty off.

Honorable mention: William Dufris (BBC Spider-Man radio drama)

So yeah, I liked Paul Soles and Dan Gilvezan the most, but Drake Bell, Christopher Daniel Barnes and Josh Keaton have also done fantastic jobs.

I've seen a bit of Robbie Daymond's take, and I really like his take. He is my new fifth place, though I still feel there are some problems.

Although Josh Keaton is still good in stuff like Shattered Dimensions, I must admit that as time passes, I grow less fond of his take for some reason.

The only character who is Amazing, Astonishing, Spectacular and The Ultimate.....The One and Only Spider-Man!

He's had a lot of great voices over the years but I think my favourite voice has got to be Josh Keaton. I know he's got the popular vote right now but honestly his voice just clicked with me as Spidey. It's not just because of Spectacular it's also due to the numerous games he's voiced in and the videos of him reading the 60's Spider-Man memes. For me he's the complete package and I think its a shame he hasn't been able to reprise since the EMH dubbing incident where he was replaced by Drake Bell. Whenever I'm reading Spider-Man it's Josh's voice that I hear.

My second favourite would be Christopher Daniel Barnes. He's the other most popular voice here and honestly I think he's pretty good too. He has so much of the qualities Spider-Man should have, being funny, dramatic (even if it was a bit overacted at times) and his voice fits Spidey well. It's great he's been able to have a lot of gigs with Marvel as of late playing numerous incarnations of Spidey, and hopefully like CDB, Keaton will get his due soon.

Neil Patrick Harris too is a natural great fit for Spider-Man too, great at being humorous and dramatic.

Rino Romano was excellent in the Spider-Man PS1 games....like wow he's really good....why doesn't this site have a clip of his performance there? it's so much better than his Spider-Man Unlimited performance. He should have another shot at the role someday.

Tom Kenny is surprisingly great for Spider-Man too. He fits more as an older thirty-something Spider-Man but still an awesome unexpected choice nonetheless.

Both Quinton Flynn and Sam Riegel are also a surprisingly good fits too.

James Arnold Taylor definitely makes a better Spidey than Harry Osborn, that's for sure.

Ben Diskin is alright but I'm more used to him as Eddie Brock.

Yuri Lowenthal while not the most original casting idea, is pretty effective as Spidey but ultimately he comes off as generic to me.

I can't really hear Chris Edgerly's take but it's actually not that bad from what I can hear.

Tobey McGuire was a perfect Peter Parker but his Spider-Man sadly I think is too light and weak sounding. He always sounds out of breath and too awkward as Spidey. His performance is classic but not perfect.

Of the three pre-90's voices my favourite would be Dan Gilvezan as he does sound the youngest of the three and has the most fitting comedic timing.

Paul Soles I get is the original Spider-Man voice but personally I think he's too deep sounding for Spider-Man. I like that he makes Peter Parker and Spider-Man sound different but i wish he did Spidey's voice far lighter. Spider-Man ain't Superman or Batman.

Ted Schwartz sounds boring and melodramatic.

Drake Bell is OK but got way too overused in a short amount of time and I got sick of his take too fast.

Patrick Chilvers works for a fighting game but otherwise I don't see it fitting the webhead at all.

Sean Marquette is fine for a really young early teen's Spider-Man but I can't see him working in the role much beyond 15/16 years old most.

Mikey Kelly I think he sounds too much like a surfer dude IMO and says Spider-Man way too much.

I don't really care for Alistair Abell, Mike Vaughn or Geoff Boothby as Spider-Man at all.

Overall there are many great and solid voices but for me Josh Keaton is my personal pick.

BONUS: I could see Spider-Man voiced by VA's like Sam Vincent, Andrew Francis, Robbie Daymond, Michael Sinterniklaas, Jason Spisak, Jason Marsden, Jason Liebrecht, Blake Shepard, Charlie Schlatter and/or Lucas Gilbertson.
said at 4:26 AM on Tue Feb 2 2016
Andrew Toth as Spider-Man is a really out of the box casting idea and you know what he's really good and fitting, for an older grown up Spider-Man.

He still sounds relatively youthful, and he nails the delivery and comedic quips excellently. I really love the bit about a good future for a change.

President Spider-Man, I like the sound of that. XD

I'd rank him around Chris Edgerly's take.

@Autovolt Rino Romano was excellent in the Spider-Man PS1 games....like wow he's really good....why doesn't this site have a clip of his performance there?

One reason could be for consistency sake. They're typically going to use the first thing that they voiced the character in. Second reason, they only had Spiderman Unlimited footage originally when the compare was made. The second reason seems the most logical.

Don't get me wrong though. I share the same opinion about Rino Romano as you do. He's much better in the video games.

Mike Vaughn isn't that bad. He may not be the greatest but I think he's actually pretty amusing to listen to. When he tells jokes he gets the personality right, he sounds the right age and some complain he sounds wimpy well he is Peter Parker inside that costume so he should sound somewhat wimpy and personally I think he has the right balance between wimpy and heroic. He may not be as good as Josh Keaton IMO but I think he has the right qualities to be Spider-Man, I hope he gets another chance to play him again.

I think I'll be changing my vote to Neil Patrick Harris. I think he nails all of Spidey's qualities in Shattered Dimensions, and I even liked him him in the MTV series, when he decided to approach voicing the character with a sense of duality (differentiating his Peter Parker from Spider Man).

Josh Keaton is a close second for my ideal Spider Man, as I think he fits both Main and Ultimate equally well. However, as bad a rap he seems to get, I think Sean Marquette is pitch perfect for the 15 year old, younger, impulsive, and somewhat inexperienced high schooler, and I can't get his voice out of my head whenever I read Brian Michael Bendis' Ultimate Spider-Man comics. A shame he hasn't gotten another chance to play the role.

I'd love to see Shattered Dimensions get a sequel, or better yet, adapt Spider-Verse into a game. It'd be cool getting to hear other actors get a chance to reprise Spider-man again, albeit as different versions. I've always felt Rino Romano would be perfect as Spider-Man 2099, whereas CDB nailed Noir and should reprise the role. I'm also in agreement with Shadowlord that Quinton Flynn would be great as Superior Spidey, though he's just as great for the main universe version too.

Rino Romano is still my favorite Spidey after all these years because I just feel he struck the best balance between comedic Spidey but also got the serious Spidey points and scenes down really well.

Josh Keaton is probably my second favorite, and Chris Daniel Barnes is my third favorite.

@MaskedMarvel89 Although, after rewatching the Spider-Man: TAS two-parter series finale, I am considering ranking Chris Barnes up to 4th or 3rd in my "Best" list as well, because it made me realize that, of all the Spidey voice actors, he probably has the best range of different personalities. He can play regular Spider-Man, Spider-Carnage, as well as Spider-Man Noir in the Shattered Dimensions video game, and make them all sound like they have completely distinct personalities.

said at 11:26 AM on Mon Feb 23 2015
@HienFan Well Spectacular is only about 3 years away from being 10 years old. So far I think its aged rather well as most of what's in it is still relevant today. I'd probably say between 15-20 years before it becomes irrelevant.

And hate to inform you of this but everything becomes outdated eventually.

Look at 90s Spiderman, it certainly hasn't aged well but I still enjoy it. See things can still be enjoyed even if they're outdated.

I think Drake Bell actually has the potential to be an amazing Spider-Man (pardon the pun), and I think it shows in the episodes of Earth's Mightiest Heroes that he appears it. The problem is moreso the writing in Ultimate rather than Bell himself.

That being said, I still think Keaton's the best. But I do enjoy Bell, CDB, Rino Romano, and Quiton Flynn just as much

Damn this is tough, so here we go.

Christopher Daniel Barnes - The Spider-Man voice I grew up with and loved.

Rino Romano - Rino does a great job, though I think he's voice would actually suit Spider-Man 2099 better.

Neil Patrick Harris - Neil is an awesome guy in general and is a great Spidey.

Josh Keaton - Josh is flawless as Spidey!

Dan Gilvezan - A great job by Dan!

Sean Marquette - Really good as a younger Spider-Man.

Quinton Flynn - Really great Spidey voice, enjoyable to listen to.

Mike Vaughn - The worst Spider-Man yet, the one thing I hated about Web of Shadows. He sounded so whiny and I mean REALLY whiny.

Tobey Maguire - I really liked Tobey in the movies and I think he did a pretty good in the games though some of he's delivery is a bit off.

Paul Soles - Paul did a decent job, was good for the time though.

James Arnold Taylor - James does a really good job as Spidey.

Benjamin Diskin - Not bad, though I think Ben was better as Venom, he's Spidey doesn't do it for me.

Ted Schwartz - Pretty meh if I'm honest.

Patrick Chilvers - Not bad but not great either.

Alistair Abell - Eh, decent at best.

Geoff Boothby - Not bad, pretty decent actually.

Drake Bell - I really like Drake's Spidey. When he's good, he's great but when he's bad, he's bad but I put the blame more on the writing rather than him.

Sam Riegel - Awesome job! Sam fits the part wonderfully.

Chris Edgerly - Not bad.

Mikey Kelley - Pretty bad.

Yuri Lowenthal - Decent at best.

Tom Kenny - Really good job by Tom.

It's a toss up between Josh Keaton and Chris Barnes, they both capture the essence of Spider-Man perfectly. I can't choose between them!

But I'd like to say that Andrew Garfield is brilliant as Spidey and I would like to see him give a go a voicing him for a game or something.

In terms of cartoons, from 1994-onward, the cartoon actors were spectacular, mainly Josh Keaton, and in terms of games, 2010-onward, the voice acting was great too, with Ben Diskin, Quinton Flynn, and James Arnold Taylor being the only exceptions before 2010 in the games to be considered favorable to me. The commercial voices are good too.

Eh, I'm not usually one to list but I'll give it a shot

1. Rino Romano- My ideal Spidey. His performance in the ps1 games is great. Nails Spidey's humor and mannerisms. Not too light or too deep (at least in the games, in the clip from the show he sounds a bit too light).
2.Josh Keaton- I held out on watching Spectacular for quite some time, but after watching it I found him to be great. And he varies the voice pretty effectively in his other appearances as the character.
3.Quinton Flynn- I find my self surprised at how well he portrayed the character. It's very natural and I found him pretty entertaining.
4.Christopher Daniel Barnes- I find that while I don't think his performance has held up very well. It definitely has it's moments and I still get that nostalgic feeling when I hear it.
5. Sam Riegel- For a game based on the film, I find myself enjoying Sam's performance more than Andrew Garfield. That being said it's a little older than I would like.
6. Neil Patrick Harris- Another natural choice for the role. And while I do like it, something about it rubs me the wrong way. I can't quite place it but I think it sounds a little… forced? Not sure if that's the right word, but it's the only word that comes to mind.
7.Ben Diskin- Not much to say here actually, I like it. Just not as much as the others.
8.Drake Bell- If given the right direction, I feel that he could actually be a really good spidey. But as is, he's only ok.
9. Sean Marquette- Really fitting for a younger Spidey (Which is what they were going for) but it is a little grating.

10. Yuri Lowenthal- Some potential, but needs work. Doesn't really stand out.
said at 11:49 PM on Mon Jun 9 2014
Personally, I feel the need to stick up for two Spider-Men who I feel get a lot more hate than they deserve.

Drake Bell I feel is way overhated. And before anyone asks, I actually don't like Ultimate Spider-Man all that much. It has some neat concepts and genuinely good moments here and there, but for the most part the writing and Spidey's "Friends" really rub me the wrong way. Still, I feel that with the material he got, Drake Bell did a pretty decent job, and I personally think that he deserves another shot in the role in a less... controversial form of Spider-Man media. He's not quite my favorite mind you, but I still feel that he is actually pretty decent in the role!

And Mike Vaughn is also one that I keep hearing people say is a horrible Spider-Man. Having played Web of Shadows I do agree that the game's opening does NOT make a good first impression as Spider-Man's voice sounds way too whiny and high pitched. However, for most of the game I fell he was actually surprisingly good in, and I feel that he'd be a bit high up on the list in my opinion. Sure, he's no Josh or Chris or Rino or even Tobey, but I feel that in-game he did a decent job between juggling corny quips (My favorite moments being him making fun of Wolverine for having a "MyFace" page and all his fat jokes he saves for the Kingpin) and being serious. A real underrated take on the character if I do say so myself.

Maybe it was the way the show displayed him, it was just way too over the top goofy and it got annoying at times to the point where I had to grit my teeth and scultch through. I guess if he got another chance to play a more adult/teen friendly version of the show I wouldn't. The problem may've been the style of comedy was TOO cartoony and seemed to be designed for freakin 8 year olds

Gosh, I think it's about time I give a proper evaluation for this VC.

Looking back, I think my favourite is actually Rino Romano. In the video games, he has a very distinct voice and could pull off both the dramatic and funny moments too.

2nd place goes to Josh Keaton. He can easily pull off Spider-Man/Peter Parker well, and is one of the best actors from Spectacular.

3rd place is Christopher Daniel Barnes. I agree with Foxwolf that he really got to do a lot with the character, so I give him credit for that. I just think that if his acting is more polished, he could be as good as, if not better than, Josh Keaton.

I've never really liked Josh Keaton as Spider-Man, his voice is a bit too.. nasally for me.

My number 1 is definitely Rino Romano, and coming right up in 2nd is Christopher Daniel Barnes. Rino, I think, fits the archetype of Spidey clowning around, but still maintains that depressing Peter Parker lifestyle.

Christopher Daniel Barnes replicates both great, but I see him more as an older Spider-Man, really.

It seems Alistair Abell was the voice was the voice of Spiderman in Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects instead of Christopher Gordon.

I guess that makes Alistair my 4th favourite then.

1. Josh Keaton
What can I say that no one else hasn't? JOSH. IS. PERFECT!! When he is playing Peter Parker, he is shy and clumsy, but still very smart. When he is playing Spider-Man he is cocky, funny and fast-talking. He also nails the darker and more serious moments of the character. People who say that Keaton is only good at as young Spidey, who is just starting his career, should check out Spider-Man: Edge of Time where he is playing adult Spider-Man.

2. Neil Patrick Harris
Popular opinion is that he was bad in the MTV show, but improved when he reprised the role later. I actually liked him from day one. Much like Keaton, he nailed both Peter and Spidey personalities and he was downright scary when he played Spidey in his bloodthirsty hunt for Kraven (long story). If Josh had never played Spidey, Patrick would be number 1 in my book.

3. Quinton Flynn
He did great job with Spidey's smartass personality and I'm 100% sure that he would do good job as Peter Parker as well.

4. Sam Riegel
Sam was really a pleasant suprise. I'm sure that no one was expecting stand-in voice in movie licensed game be this good.

5. Yuri Lowenthal
Yuri was for a long time a fan-favorite choice for the next voice of Spider-Man and is easy to see why. My only gripe is that he doesn't have much to work with, so I really hope that he gets to reprise the role someday.

6. Rino Romano
Haven't watched the series or played the ps1 games, so I only have this clip to go by. He isn't too shabby, although I'm not a fan of slight accent you can hear in his voice.

7. Benjamin Diskin
Little bit too deep for my taste, but that could probably be fixed if he ever reprised the role, but truth to be told, he really isn't my first choice to do so.

8. James Arnold Taylor
I know that he is really popular and people really love him as Spider-Man, but I never warmed up to him. I can't really put my finger on what is wrong with him, but he simply isn't doing it for me.

9. Chris Edgerly/Tom Kenny
It's kinda hard to make anything out from their clips (and I know that finding flawless clips from attractions is impossible), but they are both rather generic. Not bad, just generic.

10. Tobey Maguire
He was perfect Peter Parker. As Spider-Man... he wasn't bad, but his voice was kinda whiny and seriously lacked any self-confidence.

11. Christopher Gordon
Gordon's voice was kinda... OK. Sure, his Spidey was too much of an jackass for my taste, but with better script and directing he could be better. Not one of the best, but pretty good.

12. Patrick Chilvers
There isn't much wrong with the voice, but since he mostly just does battle grunts and cries, he doens't leave strong impact.

13. Christopher Daniel Barnes
Get torches and pitchforks ready people! It's time for a controversial opinion. Are you ready? Here it comes: I don't like Barnes as Spider-Man... at all! He is too deep and overacts hell out of the role (SHOOOOOOOOOCCCCCCCKKKKKKKEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRR!!). Was his performance affected by bad writing and voice-directing of the 90s show? Yes, but that really isn't excuse, when other people gave good performances in the show. Did he do better job as 2099 and Noir Spider-Men? Yes, but one is completely different character and other is so different from mainstream Spidey that he might as well be different character.

14. Mike Vaughn
Haven't played the game, so no idea if clip is bad, but he sounds too deep and kinda bored.

15. Drake Bell
Yes, I know that hating Bell blindly is popular. Yes, I know that he has given better performance when he has better material to work with (AEMH and Marvel Heroes). I still hate his voice and I hate even more how Marvel seems to think that shoving him down our throats is going to make us like him more. He sounds too whiny, too raspy, too young and I hatehatehateHATE how Spidey is written in USM.

16. Dan Gilvezan/Paul Soles/Ted Schwartz
I wouldn't go so far as to say that they are awful or anything, but they really don't fit Spider-Man. They sound too deep and old.

17. Mikey Kelley
Why does he keep doing that "surfer dude" voice for every comedic role he does? Michelangelo and [SHS-version of] Silver Surfer I understand, but Spider-Man? Sorry, but it just doesn't fit

18. Geoff Boothby
I get that motion comics have probably very small budget and they are not going to get anyone special for a small cameo, but was this really the best could come up with? Kinda old voice for Spidey and really wooden performance.

19. Sean Marquette
Is like someone took everything I hate (excluding the raspiness) about Bell and made it ten times worse. I get that Ultimate Spider-Man is younger version of the character, but Sean sounds like he should be in nursery school.

@The Doctor He was a good Spidey, it's not they miscasted, like the case with others were. but his inexperience caused him to perform less naturally than the likes of Jim Cummings, Mark Hamill, Gregg Berger, etc. and probably just followed advice from the voice director. Even though he was a sitcom star, hot everyone who does sitcoms and then does VA work, can instantly be comfortable behind a mic, unlike some of the cast, like Ed Asner who had plenty of experience doing live acting to be comfortable behind the mic when he voiced JJ.

I actually might just change my vote to Quinton Flynn. Don't get me wrong, Josh Keaton is amazing and fits the Web Head like a glove, but something about Quinton's voice for the character ticks with me more. Given more material, I feel like he could pull off the witty charm better, and he seems to fit Spidey's age a tad bit more than Josh, at least for the mainstream version. I'm honestly shocked he hasn't been given the chance to reprise his role yet.

I can't help it, when I think Spidey I think Rino Romano(At least from the ps1 Spider-man games). Josh Keaton is great, so is NPH, I think Bell is decent, Flynn is surprisingly really good. CDB is good as well. But at least to me, Romano IS Spider-Man.

If he still sounds young enough, I'd like to see Frankie Muniz give a shot at Spidey. Last time I heard him, he still sounded like a conving teenager and I think he has the comedic chops to pull off his wit and the acting ability for Spider-Man's angsting.

Now that I've played the Spider-man game with Rino Romano, I have to agree that he is a great voice for spider-man. He gives him a voice that has a new york feel to it. I wish we could see more of him as spider again. so I'm gonna say Josh Keaton as number 1 and Rino as number 2.

CDB is memorable but I always felt he sounded better playing a serious character than a wisecrack guy like Spider-man.

Gotta change my old order... Neil Patrick Harris is now my second favourite Spider-Man voice, followed closely by Quinton Flynn and James Arnold Taylor, who tie in my opinion. Josh Keaton still remains my number one. I have no vendetta against Drake Bell... but I do feel his performance misses a few key edges that the others' do, which writing REALLY plays a factor into.

As for good actors to play Spidey in the future...

- Teenage!Spidey: Jason Spisak (After his Kid Flash performance, I couldn't help but instantly think "Why hasn't this guy had a shot at the Webhead before?" He's got the charm, he's got the energy, he can play both the serious and comical moments... he just really works well.)

- Adult!Spidey: Nolan North (While the actor himself is a wee bit overused, he does fit well. He has the charm and energy, as with Jason, and - as Nathan Drake proves - he is VERY, VERY good with the snarking. And, again, he can also play the serious moments. Definitely a Marvel character meant for Mr. North in the future.)

- Spidey as a whole: Will Friedle (I won't deny it... I do think Will is the perfect choice to one day voice Spidey. I'll even say I think he could rank right up there with Josh Keaton. His performances always have so much charm to them in their own different way, and he can bring both a youthful, spunky flare to the character (i.e. Bumblebee or Deadpool), a more mature and adult tone (i.e. Lion-O) and has had experience in playing the 'inexperienced youth growing into the superhero role' (Terry/Batman). Both a teenage and adult Spidey, I think Will can play well, and I eagerly await the day that Marvel casts him in one of their future productions.)

@GothamRed Yeah, but maybe for 2099 or Superior Spidey Nolan would work. Though, I'd rather hear someone who had previously played Spider-man do the Superior version. Still, I agree with Lion's Edge that Will Friedle would be one of the best Spideys (though maybe not quite as good as Josh Keaton).

Drake Bell's the most controversial voice here, so I might as well share my thoughts on him.

Still, I think he's lacking the emotion I get when listening to others like Keaton. 6.5/10

1. Josh Keaton- He does a perfect job on the character. Does great at being the relatable, funny Peter Parker who can never catch a break that we all know and love. 10/10

2. NPH- He was okay in the MTV show, but really proved himself later on in Dimensions. I haven't seen the actor in other things, so I don't have a problem with him sounding too familiar. 9.3/10

3. Quinton Flynn- he was great in Ultimate Alliance; hope he gets to reprize his role soon. 9/10

4. JAT- He's another natural in the role, glad MARVEL's still using him sometimes. 8.9/10

5. Dan Gilvezan- Classic. He sounded a bit too old, but definitly the best voice they could have found for Spidey in the 1980's. 8.5/10

5. (draw) Sam Riegel- He also did a great job. I think it's cool that, even though it was a movie game, he did his own thing rather than emulating Andrew Garfield. 8.5/10

6. Rino Ramano- He also did a good job on the character. 8.25/10

6.(another draw) CDB- He did a great job as an adult Peter. He sounded pretty hammy at times, but still did a good job. Personally, I liked him better as Spidey 2099 and Noir. 8.25/10

I'll give my top 4 or 5 of these guys. Josh Keaton is the best here IMO. He captures all aspects of Spidey, and delivers jokey dialogue really well. He also has a lot of emotional range, and pulls of serious drama as well as comedy. When I read Spider-Man comics, I hear Josh when I read Spider-Man dialogue. CDB is second. He has good range and pulls of comedy and drama well, but he doesn't quite have the youthful energy Keaton has IMO. Tied for third place are Sam Riegel and Rino Romano. Sam sounds like a combo of Josh and CDB, while Rino has great comedic delivery. Drake Bell, JAT, NPH, and Quinton Flynn are also good, but don't reach the others for me IMO.

My vote goes to Josh Keaton, but Rino Romano and CDB come pretty close. Rino in particular was my first Spider-Man, I LOVED the 2000 PS1 game growing up. I also find it amusing that the only character whose mouth ever opened was Venom. I also enjoyed Neil, James, Sam, and Tom. I honestly don't mind Drake but he just doesn't leave that much of an impression on me as the others do. Although, his acting in EMH(even if Josh was replaced in the process) was some of his best work as the character so far IMO.

@DravenRoth994 "I also find it amusing that the only character whose mouth ever opened was Venom."

Dude, it was PS1 game. Characters mouths don't move. Even their fingers didn't move until some point in 2000 or 2001. As for Venom, well have you noticed his mouth never closes. I think he was one of the early characters to have his mouth move which was kinda weird when no1 else is doing it.

@Ross123 I think it's been said that the reason Venom never seems to close his mouth is that "Venom with his mouth closed doesn't look very good". I think one of the Spider-Man writers or artists said that.

@Dark Kuja I don't claim to speak for anyone else but I just don't like Bell's Spider-Man. It's nothing personal against Bell, I just think that his voice is a bit obnoxious, out of place and too "played to the camera" (that last one I feel is even worse in more serious takes IMO). Also, I more and more I can sort of feel Bell in the recording booth. A lot of celebrity VAs have that problem IMO. I will say this though, of the Bad Spider-Man voices I consider Bell the least bad.

@Dark Kuja Nostalgia? Because Spectacular Spider-man is such an old show? It's only been off the air for a few years (and is now on again in rerun)

The nostalgia argument only applies when the older thing doesn't hold up today and the newer one is being unfairly compared against it. You can still watch episodes of Spectacular on the CW on saturday morning. It's pretty easy to do a viewing comparison and make your own decision.

Keaton for me. By a looooooong shot. Closest second place is Barnes, and that IS my nostalgia talking.
said at 3:40 PM on Wed Dec 18 2013
@franklin But he didn't use Spectacular Spider-Man or any past animated/video game incarnations as a direct example. What he seems to be speaking of is people and their irritation over Drake's performance and USM cloud their minds so that they can ignore rationality. Instead of having the intellectual honesty to admit that something has any kind of merit, they would rather blindly hate on it out of pettiness. And sadly, that's what a lot of people do.

@Dark Kuja Same here. IMO Josh Keaton is to Spider-Man what Kevin Conroy is to Batman. He just understands the character, his delivery is excellent (par for the course for all his roles IMO), his mannerisms fit the wall-crawler perfectly, and he perfectly balances, jokey, nerdy, fun loving, sarcastic, dark, moody, motor mouthy, heroic and retains the everyman. At times you can almost feel the smile behind Spidey's face when Keaton is acting. No matter the age, I always buy his voice and everything just fits. Really I could gush about Josh Keaton's Spidey all day so you get the point.
Barnes is a close second, at times he does the sarcasm even better than Keaton, really the only problems I have with Barnes are how hammy the guy can get (CDB as the next voice for Captain Kirk!) and I can't buy his voice in high school (I know, I know. Some high schoolers do have deep voices "Reality is Unrealistic", this is just me). While I strongly disagree that Spidey should remain in high school, I think it is imperative he starts there. Beyond that Barnes is only slightly less great than Keaton.
Sorry for the ramble, but I really needed to gush about some good Spidey VAs.

@PsychicVoiceSpy I don't disagree with you i just have the opinion that calling something crap isn't necessarily nostalgia for something else talking. Sometimes it really is crap.

Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 4:46 PM on Sun Dec 29 2013
@Spider-Fox I grew up on CBD and loved his take on Spidey. I think the hammy aspects can be partially attributed to the writing which often sounded like it was lifted straight out of a comic. But I agree that Keaton nails the role in all aspects of the character and I've conceded my vote from CBD to Keaton.

Also, CDB's Peter was in college in the 90's series.
said at 5:34 PM on Sun Dec 29 2013
@Spider-Fox I've preferred Spider-Man to have a deeper voice than a plain high-school student since I was a little kid. I suppose I like him to sound a little older than a archetypical teenager voice because all of the Spider-Man VA's I knew growing up: Christopher Barnes, Paul Soles (to limited extent), and Rino Romano all had deeper voices than Josh and a few of his other actors.

It makes sense to me because Peter is an intelligent and mature kid, and therefore I would imagine him to sound a little "beyond his years" so to speak in both voice and delivery. Rino Romano, Chris Barnes (if his direction and dialogue were better with a slightly higher voice), and Neil Patrick Harris (Shattered Dimensions) is generally the pitch I like Spider-Man to have. That kind of voice also makes his quips and jokes sound much funnier to me.

I didn't mind him at first but i have really grown to dislike Drake Bell as Spidey, I find him really obnoxious and arrogant (not to mention completely devoid of range). Doesn't help that Marvel's forcing down our throats.

For me, growing up in my childhood as a HUUUUUUUGE fan of Spider-Man, I have to say that the one I think sounded like the best rendition is Josh Keaton. Mainly because I feel that he nailed every characteristic of the web-slinging hero down to the core. To me, everyone else either sounded too high (Marquette, Chilvers), too low (Gordon, Boothby), or just didn't leave much of an impact on me.

For some of my other picks:

C.D. Barnes: Meh, he never sounded like 'THE' Spider-Man to me, but I think he still did a good job.
Rino Romano: A bit grating for my tastes, but decent enough.
Tobey Maguire: Perhaps because he was one of the first Spider-Mans for me, but I do like his perfomance pretty well. My third-favorite pick.
James Arnold Taylor: This is one of the other performances that sounded right to me. My second-favorite pick.
Drake Bell: I actually like him in the role. Yes, haters... I said it. (http://media.tumblr.com/f4abb8223f6dc5d9a5ec9b841de96e09/tumblr_inline_mp0bjqQQ2t1qz4rgp.gif)

It's time for another overly large comic book related opinion from me. This time my victim is Spider-Man!

1. Christopher Daniel Barnes: He certainly had his moments of unabashed cheesiness.(SHOCKER!) Still, I thought that he did really well with what he had and his voice, for better or worse, is pretty unique amongst the crowd.
2. Rino Romano: Another really good voice. Particularly in the PS1 games. His delivery could be kind of formulaic, but he still provided the right amount of personality for the character.
3. Neil Patrick Harris: His voice was too deep for Spidey in the show. It's a good thing NPH got another shot at the character. He made a huge improvement in Shattered Dimensions. He's one of the best.
4. Josh Keaton: Yeah, he's pretty much perfect. He does teen and adult Spidey equally well and better than anyone else. He got to show some of the widest range of anyone hear along with consistently strong acting.
5. Dan Gilvezan: Dan always has a very charming voice and this is no exception. He doesn't fit the character very well, but I still enjoy him.
6. Sean Marquette: Eh, he's not bad, but he doesn't leave much of an impression or delivers particularly strong acting.
7. Quinton Flynn: A natural choice for the character and he really delivered on the humor. I really hope that one day Quinton will get to reprise Spidey and flex some dramatic muscle.
8. Mike Vaughn: His voice is okay, but his delivery could get way to whiny and some of his attempts to sound evil with the black suit were just laughable.
9. Tobey Maguire: yawn Tobey has always been a boring Spider-Man to me, live-action or voice. Andrew Garfield is much better.
10. Paul Soles: He was just kind of there. Nothing about his voice was memorable to me in a good or a bad way. He did do a decent job with some of the jokes at least.
11. James Arnold Taylor: Another great choice for the character. If I got to pick a voice for the next Spider-Man show I think I would choose JAT.
12. Benjamin Diskin: I don't what it is, but I always thought the voice acting in MUA2 was really off sounding. This holds true with Spidey too. I can't put my finger on it, but something about the voice doesn't gel with me.
13. Ted Schwartz: I'd say Ted is probably the weakest voice here. He sounds too sedate and bland most of the time, even more so than Paul.
14. Patrick Chilvers: Not much to go on, but he sounds like a discount Rino Romano.
15. Christopher Gordon: He's not very good, but I fail to see why some people think he's really bad. His voice doesn't fit very well, but nothing else is really wrong about his actual acting.
16. Geoff Boothby: He sounds like he's trying to imitate Josh, but sounds too old and a bit awkward. Meh.
17. Drake Bell: Ah yes, Drake Bell, the most controversial voice here. And I must say that he is, without a doubt in my mind, just okay. That's it. He fits the character and he has decent delivery, putting him above Sean and some of the other voices, however he hasn't really left a huge impression on me.
18. Sam Riegel: He put quite a bit of energy into the role and was very enjoyable. I can't really complain, I think he's one of the best voices here.
19. Chris Edgerly: Another voice that's just okay. He really doesn't leave much of an impression here.
20. Mikey Kelly: He works, but his voice can be a bit too raspy. There's not much else for me to say.
21. Yuri Lowenthal: He's an improvement over Mikey and I would like to hear him get more material.
22. Tom Kenny: It's not exactly the most unique voice Tom has done, but it really works for Spidey. Another great performance.

1.Josh Keaton is spiderman,no doubts abou it
2.James Arnold Taylor-quite a natural fit,im glad hes starting to voice him more
3.Yuri Lowenthal-hes no stranger to doing teen heroes,and he definantly pulls this off
4.Rino Romano-his voice in Ultimated aside,he really shines in the 2000 video game and enter electro,where he sound a lot like Josh Keaton
5.Quinto Flyn-a tad to deep,but other wise feels very natural in the role,i would like to hear more of him
6.Christopher Daniel Barnes-fitting for an adult spiderman,and he surtenly has good delivery of his lines

as for the others

Neil Patrick Hariss-another case where i only hear the celebrety and not the character
Sean Marquette-oh god,i know the ultimate version is slightly younger,but Sean makes him sound like hes 11 years old.
Ben Diskin-sounds like his Eddie Brock when his voice cracked,and it didnt work
Mike Vaughn-sounds more like a young Tony Stark
Sam Riegel/Christopher Gordon-both are incredibly annoying,they sound more like Flash Thompson
Drake Bell-not only does he have no clue how to voice act,but his voice is just painfully irittating Tom Kenny-what the hell were they thinking?
Chris Edgerly-to low and bad audio quality
Mikey Kelley-just reused his silver surfer voice

I'll always consider Barnes to be the best Spidey. :) Josh Keaton may have the most votes, but I personally thought his voice was too whiny. Even though Peter is younger in Spectacular Spider-Man, I still think Pete/Spidey needs a stronger voice. Barnes really brought out everything I love about Spider-Man--a strong but witty hero, and a troubled, and fumbling yet persistent young man struggling with all the woes of life and super villains atop it, and fighting himself at times in a kind of tug-of-war over whether he should keep being Spider-Man. Christopher audibly brought all that out in a very believable way.

And that's fine. But voice that opinion in a polite and respectable manner. Piping in just to say "I hate so-and-so as such-and-such whoever cast them should die!!!1!" without backing up that opinion is a sure-fire way to get a ticket on the first flight to Ban-ville.

Christopher Daniel Barnes- I like his voice for the character, it's a shame that he had to work with awful voice direction, a lot of his lines sounded really hammy. I prefer him as Spider-Man Noir, in all honesty.
Rino Romano- I like his take on the character, but most of he doesn't really have a lot of range for Spider-Man, he talks in the same tone a lot.
Neil Patrick Harris- I like that he disguises his voice as Spider-Man, but his Spider-Man voice is a little too deep and serious. Like CDB, I thought he improved in Shattered Dimensions.
Josh Keaton- He's absolutely perfect. He fits Spider-Man's age, he delivers on the wise-cracking, and he also gets serious when he needs to. Josh is the definitive Spider-Man, it's a shame Marvel doesn't realize that.
Dan Gilvezan- One of the better pre 90's voices, but like a lot before that, it feels a little too deep and generic. Again, prefer his take on 2099.
Sean Marquette- I don't get the hate for this version, he balances humor and anger well. He sounds like a 15 year old, which is how old Spider-Man is in the game. He should voice him again in some capacity.
Quinton Flynn- I like him a lot as Spider-Man and hope he voices him again sometime in the future. My only problem is that he speaks in a comical tone most of the time. Am I the only person that thinks he would fit a Bendis Avengers motion comic well?
Mike Vaugan- Sorry, I can't stand it. He sounds way too nasal and whiny.
Tobey Maguire- He was better in the movies, his voice in the games is way too reserved and monotone. I think he did a little better in the Spider-Man 3 game, at least.
Paul Soles- It's nothing special, he sounds far too old and deep.
James Arnold Taylor- Another good VA, he fits Spider-Man like a glove, and yet another actor I would like to see voice Spider-Man again.
Benjamin Diskin- I don't really like him as Spider-Man, it's a little nasal and feels a bit forced.
Ted Schwartz- It's alright, need to hear more.
Patrick Chilvers- I like it, he reminds me of Rino Romano.
Christopher Gordon- Pretty good, he sounds similar to Tobey Maguire.
Geoff. B- It's decent, but the delivery feels a little off.
Drake Bell- I hate the material he's given, but the voice he uses is pretty good. I thought he did a good job in EMH even though I was pissed Marvel replaced Keaton with him.
Sam Riegel- Not bad, but he sounds kind of whiny, I think he could do better.
Chris Edgerly- Very forced, not fond of it.
Mikey Kelley- Don't like his voice for the character, he sounds like a surfer dude.
Yuri Lowenthal- Inspired casting choice, it's too bad he's restricted to SHS online.
Tom Kenny- I'm pleasantly surprised, he reminds me of Quinton Flynn, but I'll never unhear Spongebob coming out of his mouth.

@PsychicVoiceSpy I played it once around a year ago, and I remember watching the cutscenes on Youtube. I don't really have much memories of his performance though, he's a good Spider-Man like I said, and he can definitely act out his lines well, I just thought he could have had a little more emotional range. I definitely think he had better voice direction than CDB though, I think he could do even better if they gave him another chance to voice Spider-Man.

Out of all the Spiderman voice actors we've had over the years, my Top 3 performances for Spiderman are:

1. Josh Keaton- Didn't think much of his Spidey at first, but he proved himself the best with such powerful emotion and expression during his tenure as the Web Slinger. Josh really shined brilliantly in this role.
2. Chris Daniel Barnes- Classic, and he was very good at the angsty and gentle sides of Spidey's personality in particular. Sure some of his work was hammy, but it was charming in a way as well!
3. Rino Romano- Excellent. He knew how to tap into Spidey's comedic senses very well, but also knew how to capture his heroic, brooding, and serious moments as well.

1. Josh Keaton - In "Spectacular", video games, and even voiceovers for fans, this guy has proven to be THE best at voicing Spidey.
2. Christopher Daniel Barnes - A very close second after Keaton, though his series' crappy voice direction did nothing to show that. His comedic timing is excellent and he nails the angsty side of the character.
3. Rino Romano - His voice is a perfect fit for Spidey, and he does great at being nerdy, funny, brooding and heroic.
4. Neil Patrick Harris - Another pitch perfect fit. He also gets everything down right.
5. Tobey Maguire - I love his voice as both Peter and Spidey, and though some people don't like him from the movies, I think his game voiceovers proves he CAN be funny.
6. Ted Schwartz - The best sounding, best performed of the old Spidey voices. Just classic.
7. Dan Gilvezan - Does a very funny, light-hearted take on the webhead.
8. Mikey Kelley and Yuri Lowenthal - Both sound almost identical, and both are really good.
9. Tom Kenny - Not someone I'd ever think of to make a good Spidey, but he really surprises me here.
10. James Arnold Taylor - It's his Tidus voice, but for a mostly comedic Spidey, that works.
11. Paul Soles - The first ever Spidey voice. Did a good job distinguishing his Peter mode from his Spidey one.
12. Mike Vaughn - Has a very fitting voice for the character. Wish I could hear more from him.
13. Quinton Flynn - Sounds too deadpan in the clip, but has potential.
14. Sam Reigal - Sound too deep and forced at first, but better in the second half of his clip.
15. Drake Bell - Too high and generic most of the time, not to mention grating.
16. Chris Edgerly - Unfitting voice and awkward delivery.
17. Ben Diskin - No, that's not Peter Parker. That's Eddie Brock!

Alright, here's my rundown on this compare (it's going to be long, but I wanted to give a fairly thorough judgement). We all know he was a nerd who got picked on and he was socially awkward, we also know that after he became Spider-Man he became more brave, determined, and he used one-liners and sarcastic remarks while engaged with his foes. so which actors capture the "essence" of Spider-Man/Peter Parker the best to me?

Let me say first that I imagine him having a balance of lovable dork, brave hero, sarcastic jokester, and a sense of vulnerability at times while also having a voice that doesn't sound overly young like a lot of cartoon teenagers and who doesn't sound too old either.

My top three would go like this:

1: Rino Romano
2: Neil Patrick Harris (for his Shattered Dimensions performance)
3: Tom Kenny

Why? They each sound distinct, a little nerdy, and funny. I unfortunately haven't seen enough of them to comment on their performances in their entirety outside of Rino, but they have the kind of voice I would imagine Spider-Man (and Peter too, of course) to have. Sam Riegel's acting also reflects how I would imagine him to speak, but his voice doesn't quite work for me.

After this, there are several I would categorize as the "bland, derivative teenager voices". These include: James Arnold Taylor, Yuri Lowenthal, Drake Bell, Benjamin Diskin, Sean Marquette, and to a lesser extent, Josh Keaton.

I know these guys probably have their fans (especially Keaton), but for me, their voices for Spider-Man all sound like generic cartoon teenagers with Spider-Man slapped over them.

The reason I have a higher opinion of Keaton even if I think he still sounds generic is that his acting as the character is still genuinely good. He's proven that he can be very funny, particularly with his meme videos on YouTube, and he is good with dramatic moments, but his voice has never quite said "Spider-Man" to me. I think he sounds too young, he lacks the dorky quality I imagine Spider-Man to have (and this is from my experience with pretty much all of his work on the character). His acting is good, but it's missing some elements to it and his voice itself doesn't fit, IMO. The rest of the "typical teen" voices just annoy me and they sound way too plain to be Spider-Man.

Let me wrap this up with my thoughts on Christopher Daniel Barnes. As a lot of people have said, his acting was all over the place at times, and that's more-than-likely due to the voice direction. Aside from that, his voice just doesn't fit what I think Peter Parker would sound like to begin with. I don't think he was awful, but he was very inconsistent and I don't think his voice fit the character.

@Bombermanp i totally understand there are many differences that are obvious to comics fans, but as I said, it has the potential to open up a can of worms.

As for young versions, even though we do have VCs where young and older voices are clumped together, when there's a sufficient number of VA's in both young and old, we split up the VCs, like your DBZ example. It seems fairer to compare young voices separately to older voices. In the Spidey Noir case, both versions of Peter Parker are adult.
Look, it's not a perfect system on how VCs are created but keeping it simple is the goal. At the end of the day, it's which voice do you like the best.

@VctrBnsn I had a couple theories on that.
I think they had unknown do Spiderman when they first casted but later either didn't like him and got Yuri to redo the role or they had more DLC for the game and that needed more lines for Spidey but unknown was busy.
Music Meister (Moderator)

I've said before that Neil improved in SD sounding goofy and dorky but still having that charm.

Unknown (who does sound like Mikey Kelly) does alright. A voice like that would work with Michelangelo but his surfer twinge doesn't really fit Spidey well.

Yuri was a good improvement, he's dorky and gives a good one liner here and there but keeps a charm to him. He could do so well in a more serious media.

I didn't think Tom would be good, thought he'd be too cartoony. However he was good, doing the comical lines very well but fits in more serious moments.

I went through all the Spidermans: the ones I did know, and the ones I didn't.
I believe that they all did a great job at capturing the essence of Spidey: A witty, webslinging, fast-talking, and overall friendly neighborhood Spiderman.

Christopher Daniel Barnes: I grew up with his Spider-Man, but I don't think it has aged well. He sounds too old, and a little generic at times. Not to mention he can really go over the top at moments. I know a lot of people like this performance, but I personally find it overrated. 6.5/10

Rino Romano: I think he does a really good job, as he sounds young but not too young. Though at times, he can sound a little forced, I still think he does a great job. 8.5/10

Neil Patrick Harris: I love Harris, but I wasn't much of a fan of his Spidey. He's ok, but I feel he doesn't have enough energy for the role. 6/10

Josh Keaton: Keaton IS Spider-Man to me. He nails all the sides of Spidey, from the jokey and sarcastic Spider-Man, to the nervous and shy Peter Parker, the emotional troubles and the occassional angry side. I don't see anyone doing a better job than Keaton. 10/10

Dan Gilvezan: He has the same problem I have with Barnes. He sounds too old and a little generic. Though I do find he does a worse job than Barnes. 4.5/10

Sean Marquette: He sounds way too young, and sounds really whiny and wimpy, even as Spider-Man. 5/10

Quinton Flynn: Flynn is close to perfect as Spider-Man, but I don't know how he would do as Peter Parker. I would actually rank him second. after Josh Keaton. 9.5/10

Mike Vaughn: He sounds too low, serious and nasally. 5.5/10

Tobey Maguire: I wasn't a fan of Maguire's Spider-Man in the movies, and the same goes for here. He doesn't sound convinvingly nerdy as Peter, or as jokey as Spider-Man. 5/10

Paul Soles: He sounds waaaay to old and serious, and when he does joke, he comes off as forced. 3/10

James Arnold Taylor: Taylor is a natural in the role, and does a great job at the sarcastic nature of Spider-Man. Though he does sound a tad wimpy as Spider-Man, he still does a great job. 9/10

Benjamin Diskin: Diskin does not have that much lines of dialogue, though he still does a pretty good job. 7.5/10

Ted Schwartz: Out of the VA's pre-1994 series, I think Schwartz is the best, but he is not great by any means and sounds a little old and forced. 5.5/10

Patrick Chilvers: He is terrible as Spidey, but he does not have anything to work with. 1.5/10

Christopher Gordon: He sounds ok, though I do feel that he comes off as a jerk, rather than jokey and sarcastic, especially when he swears. 6/10

Geoff Boothby: I don't like Boothby as Spidey, as he sounds really forced. 3.5/10

Drake Bell: Bell was surprisingly good as Spidey, though I do feel that his performance does not have that much depth, but I do enjoy his performance. 7/10

Sam Riegel: Riegel does a great job at voicing Spidey, and gives a lot of energy to the role. 9/10

Chris Edgerly: Ok, though he does not have much to work with. 6/10

Overall, Josh Keaton is clearly my favourite, with Quinton Flynn at 2nd, and James Arnold Taylor and Sam Riegel tied at 3rd
said at 6:25 PM on Sun Jul 14 2013
Barnes is my fav with Keaton 2nd, Romano 3rd, Gordan 4th and Taylor & Bell joint 5th.

Ted makes spidey sound posh while Paul and Dan make him sound older than he should.

Sean sounds too much like sonic really.

Quinton is funny but this wasn't his best clip.

Sam is a brilliant double for Andrew Garfield so I hope there will be more games based on that film series.

Benjamin is better at venom than spidey but it was still pretty good.

Toby was good in the films so i'm glad he came back for the games as most great actors don't.

Mike, Chris , Patrick and Geoff are not spidey at all.

Since Taylor is in my top 5 I can't wait to hear him again in lego marvel heroes.

@Ross123 I used to think Patrick was good until I saw this site(first time in a few years since I last heard him) since I thought Drake sounded like rubbish back then

Though ever since the Phineas and Ferb crossover I think he improved a lot

I have to admit I prefer Quinton but Barnes and Rino are really good as well
said at 12:35 PM on Tue Mar 25 2014
@HienFan That's cool, I wouldn't mind seeing Quinton as Spiderman again. I know that's not what you told me but he was pretty funny so it'd be nice to see him take another shot since he only voiced him once.

Can't believe I've made it this long without commenting on this voice compare, ha ha.

This is one of the FEW voice compares where I feel that every VA does a pretty good job as the character. Usually in a VC this large there's always at least one VA who, unfortunately, just doesn't fit the bill at all. I don't feel that way here. All VAs gave lots of effort and great performances that fit their particular version of the character. My overall top picks are:

1.) Rino Romano
2.) Drake Bell (Yes, that's right. Drake's my number two pick :p )
3.) Christopher Daniel Barnes
4.) Josh Keaton
5.) Neil Patrick Harris

Here's my picks for the best Spidey voice actors in no specific order.
Rino Romano played an excellent job in the PS1 Spider-Man games, and did a decent job as him in S-MU
Josh Keaton is the most popular for good reason, he did an spectacular job as Spider-Man and a pretty good job as Peter Parker.
Christopher D. Barnes did an amazing job as Spider-Man and is still one of my all time favorites, but he could be a bit hammy at times, and the lines seemed off, but he was one of the best parts in the show.
James A. Taylor is a bit of an obvious choice for playing Spider-Man, and he did a good job, but Spider-Man Friend or Foe was based on the movies (err...kinda.) So while he did a wonderful, he sounds nothing like Tobey Maguire, but even then, he does a solid job as Spidey.
Benjamin Diskin did a good job in MUA2 and if you ask me, he's more suited for the role of Spider-Man then Venom anyway.

1: Rino Romano (Forget Spider-Man Unlimited, Romano shined in the Playstation Spider-Man games. He not only improved his Spider-Man, he made him memorable! He successfully combined the sarcasm and the seriousness that makes Spidey great).

2: Josh Keaton (Josh is very close to Rino. He got the awkward teenage Peter and the upbeat, joking superhero Spider-Man down pat. He made Spectacular Spider-Man, an already great show, into a fantastic show).

3: Quinton Flynn (Yes, Quinton's up there in my list. I was really suprised at how likable he was! His best line had to be, "That dude, scares me.". Marvel: Ulitmate Alliance had some great voices, and Flynn was one of them).

4: Christpoher Daniel Barnes (While admittedly not my favorite, Barnes did very good with the material he was given. His Peter Parker was especially good, showing a lot of humanity and flaws, even managing to make some very corny jokes funny! Gotta give him points there).

I'm probably going to get a bunch of hate for this but I honestly don't like Christopher Daniel Barnes as Spidey. His acting sounded off to me and at times, a bit too old but that may have to do with not so great voice direction and writing.

My favorite Spider Man is actually... Rino Romano. Has no one heard his performance in the PS1 games? He was ten times better than in Spider Man Unlimited! He got the humor and the emotion just right. Watch the scene on YouTube where he is shouting at Venom in the sewer for endangering Mary Jane, he was fantastic. I will say that I think Josh Keaton makes a wonderful teen Peter Parker/Spider Man, but for an adult version I highly prefer Rino Romano and I wish they would have used him longer than they did.

@pete Rino Romano had the absolute most potential for the character, IMO. His dramatic moments and his quips all sounded much more distinct to me than what I heard from Josh Keaton in SSM or anyone I've heard play the character so far. After Rino played Batman it was clear that he had great range as well as talent.

I don't know what's happened to him in recent years, but I really want that guy back. I wish he could have played Spider-Man for an extended period of time with a show that explored more of the character's personality than Unlimited or the games... but I have no idea if he retired or what. If it's because no-ones hiring him then I think I have some @$$es to kick.

Josh Keaton, CB Barnes, Quinton Flynn, and Sam Riegel are my favorites. Christopher Gordon is probably the worst here, only because he comes off as a real jerk. Drake Bells not horrible, he`s just given some stupid lines and delivery. I think Yuri Lowenthal and Roger Craig Smith can do Spider-Man justice.

@VctrBnsn Yuri Lowenthal or Roger Craig Smith as Spidey? Yeah, it could work! I'd suggest maybe Greg Ayres, Nolan North or Travis Willingham myself.

@MilanTheVillain01 The other day I was also thinking Mitchelle Whitfield, the guy who did Donatello on TMNT could be Spider-Man. Yuri would probably be similar but slightly different than his Ben 10 voice, and Roger I see doing a slightly different Sonic voice.
said at 5:28 PM on Mon Mar 4 2013
@MilanTheVillain01 IDK about Roger Craig Smith or Travis Willingham but Nolan might make a good adult Spidey. As for Greg Ayres, I always heard him as the child/preteen Peter before it mentally transitioned to Josh Keaton at 14.

@Spider-Fox Some people talk like Travis can voice anyone. I've seen He-Man, Cyclops, Aquaman, Shazam, Captain America, even Batman. And I'll admit I through out he could do a good Raphael.
Travis might be too deep for Spider-Man, but I still think Roger can do a good job. Listen to him as Human Torch and that's the voice I imagine him using.

Here are my thoughts on each of them. Generally speaking, the Spider-Man voices at the beginning and ends of the compare are the better ones. Many of the voices in the middle are average to mediocre with some pleasant exceptions.

CDB: Good voice. The way he says some of his lines sounds a little exaggerated, but he IS a superhero; what do you expect?

Rino Romano: Kind of young-sounding, but I like it; he's got the attitude down. Also, you gotta love that cheesy '90s techno in the background. Sounds like something out of a Mega Drive game.

NPH: As legen-wait for it-dary as NPH is, his Spider-Man is a bit older-sounding than I'd like.

Josh Keaton: He's got the youthful voice, the energy, and, the acting chops for both comedy and drama. Despite that, I feel like he's missing that extra edge to make him the absolute be-all end-all best. He's up there, though.

Dan Gilvezan: Works great for an older-style Spider-Man. Sounds like the kind of voice that you'd imagine in your head for the comics of that era. No real problems here; Dan's voice just oozes charm and likability.

Sean Marquette: WAY too young-sounding. I think it's fair to say he was miscast.

Quinton Flynn: This is the exact kind of voice I've always imagined Spider-Man having. Quinton is a complete natural in the role, what more can be said? I'd love to hear him be Spider-Man in a series. Honestly, he's my favourite here.

Mike Vaughn: Voice is nasal, the delivery's flat. Sorry, but I rank him pretty low as far as Spidey voices go.

Tobey Maguire: His Spider-Man works all right in live-action, but as far as voices go, he's not the best. He really sounds like he's phoning it in here. Andrew Garfield FTW!

Paul Soles: He's got the sarcasm, at least. Still, the voice feels like a stock "60's superhero" voice. Nothing too special, but it's listenable.

James Arnold Taylor: Another natural in the role. I'd love to hear him do more than a one-off game, because him as Spider-Man is a great casting choice.

Ben Diskin: Good voice actor, but I don't think he's right for Spider-Man.

Ted Schwartz: Sorry dude, but if your take on Spider-Man was lying around in a military base, Solid Snake would use it as a disguise. Geez.

Patrick Chilvers: Kinda bland. Considering that he voiced Spider-Man in fighting games, it's a shame he's not as energetic as he could be.

Christopher Gordon: Too old-sounding.

Geoff Boothby: Too old-sounding, and the acting's too over-the-top.

Drake Bell: I actually quite like him. He's got the humour, the youth, the charisma. He's quite believable in the role. He and Josh Keaton should do a Nickelodeon sitcom together.

Sam Riegel: One of the most energetic out of all these voices. Like with many of his roles, Sam manages to strike the balance of both youth and maturity, which is hard to accomplish but it sounds really good. One of my favourites.

Chris Edgerly: He definitely sounds like a wisecracker. Not bad at all.

Overall, my favourites are Quinton Flynn, Sam Riegel, and JAT, with Josh Keaton and Drake Bell not far behind. Geoff Boothby, Christopher Gordon, Ted Schwartz, Sean Marquette, and Mike Vaughn are the weakest links.

@Matt To be honest, I just think that Bell makes Spidey sound like a 7 year old. While I don't like the show, I will give that it fits the mood better than a more serious series like Avengers EMH.
In Ultimate Spider-Man its passible (sp?), in Avengers EMH, its destracting, grating and irritating.

@pete I'll take your word for it. The show honestly lost me by "Flight of the Iron Spider". From the Disney XD adds, Mr. Bell does sound more confident in the role. It still sounds off to me though.
I am somewhat familior with Mr. Bell's work on Drake and Josh and the Fairley Odd Parents movies. I will say Mr. Bell does very well as the 'stupid but well meaning guy' with Jerk with a Heart of Gold tendancies. To me Spider-Man is more of an 'intelligent but energenic Bill Murray expy'. To simplify I think Bell is best suited for the Idiot Hero achetype, Spider-Man is more of a Genki Guy Science Hero with a touch of Sad Clown (tvtropes). Granted I am against pigeonholding VAs but not everyone is a Nolan North or Wendee Lee (hell I honestly consider Josh Keaton the Distaff Counterpart of Wendee Lee) and given Mr. Bell's lack of experience in voice acting, Mr. Bell doesn't fit the role at all IMO. The writing of USM doesn't help either.
To me Mr. Bell at his BEST makes Spider-Man sound like a 7 year old child playing dress up and at his worst an utter jerk. I have no malice towards a live action actor moving towards VAing (Mark Hamill is one of my favorite VAs) but maybe Spider-Man was just too big a role for someone without much VA experience.
I have no personal malice towards Mr. Bell. I just think he's a bad Spider-Man period. Especilly since he's coming off of such talents as Christopher Daniel Barnes, Rino Remano, Quinton Flynn and JOSH FREAKIN KEATON. (Maybe Mr. Bell would make a better Harry Osborn.)

they should do a separate compare with Ultimate Spider-Man Drake bell vs Sean Marquette if they ever do Sean has my vote for that version of the character that being said Josh Keaton is the best 616 version of Spider-Man.
said at 6:21 AM on Wed Jan 9 2013
@RevolverRikochet Josh Keaton also played Ult. Spidey in Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions and he easily kicks Sean's and Drake's asses. ;-)

This is hard to judge, most of them did a great job.

Like everyone else though, I would say Josh Keaton was the best: he just fit the character really well in every way. His voice had a good amount of energy, power and not to mention great acting!

However, other really great Spider Man VA's are Chris Barnes, Rino Romano, Tobey Maguire and Drake Bell.

Spidey has had a wide array of VAs during his time. But, for me, Josh Keaton did the best work as the web-slinger. He was able to mix the wit and charm of the character, as well as his more sullen and serious moments, and completely NAIL both Peter Parker and Spider-Man.

Christopher Daniel Barnes also does a good job and was great with the snarking... but, at times, he came off a little too hammy for my likings.

Another I like, surprisingly, is Drake Bell. I know Ultimate is inferior to Spectacular in many ways, but Drake Bell is a pretty good Spidey. He has the wit and charm of a teenage hero but can pull off the serious moments and his work on EMH is also very impressive.

Quinton Flynn and James Arnold Taylor also do a ogood job. So, my top five, in order, are...

1. Josh Keaton (Spectacular Spider-Man)
2. Christopher Daniel Barnes (Spider-Man, 1994)
3. Drake Bell (Ultimate Spider-Man)
4. Quinton Flynn (Marvel Ultimate Alliance)
5. James Arnold Taylor (Friend or Foe)

After those 3 I would put Dan Gilvezan. Mostly for his performance is Shattered Dimensions. After Dan I t would be a tie between Sean Marquette and Rino Romano. Both of them lacked something. Rino didn't pull off the jokes well enough in my opinion and Sean pulled off the jokes well but wasn't the best at being serious.

@coolgeek176 Dan did Spidey 2009. He only did Peter Parker in Amazing Friends but in Shattered Dimensions he was Miguel O' Hara.

Alright my Top 10 Spider-Man voice actors are
1. Josh Keaton-High energy, dark, powerful, emotional and threatening. Josh Keaton is not only a great voice actor but one of the greatest (THE greatest Spidey VA in my opinion) Spidey to date (that includes Andrew Garfield but we're not talking about live action). Teen Spidey or Adult Keaton portrays the role beautifly. He added a certain energy to the character but always keeping a sort of deepness to his voice that makes for great snarking. What more can I say other than I hope he will reprise the role one day.
2. Christopher Daniel Barnes-Another great Spidey VA who I sadly haven't heard do much else. Though at times he was hammy (a certain phrase comes to mind), he was exellent at snarking and made an excellent Adult Spidey though I have problems seeing that voice in high school. He nailed much of Spider-Man but just falls short of Keaton. Hears hoping he becomes the star of his own animated detective series.
3. Neil Patrick Harris-Contrary to most people, I liked Harris in the New Animated series. He had a good ballance of snark and energy. In Shattered Dimensions he gives Spidey a higher pitch which makes me think that he's going for a 'grown up Josh Keaton' feel compared to his NAS voice. Both performances are still awesome.
4. Reno Remano-Probably my first real Spider-Man, to me he sounds like a good Christopher Daniel Barnes replacement who was good in his own right. That and he's the only actor to play Spider-Man and Batman (interestingly enough though Josh KEATON and Michael KEATON) and do both justice.
5. Quinton Flynn-Another great Barnes replacement. Like Barnes he REALLY nails the snark but sadly he didn't get much role time having to share time with at least three other heroes at a time.
6. Sam Riegel-Sam really suprised me. He sounds like the Josh Keaton expy that Quinton Flynn was but with the added advantage of having his own game. However while Quinn nailed Spidey being Spidey, Sam nailed the emotional Spidey and if Josh isn't there to reprise the role and Yuri Lowenthal isn't on hand, I hope Sam reprises the role for any Spider-Man anime (with Tara Platt as Mary Jane, eh? Eh?).
7. Dan Gilverzan-Really the best of the "Golden Age" Spider-Men and the only one that didn't go with the "every superhero sounds like Superman" bit that really gets on my nerves on older superhero showes. Dan is funny and just a load of fun.
8. James Arnlod Taylor-Now I normally think of JAT as Harry Osborn, he does to quite well for Spider-Man and he can do serious stuff from past roles. Adding the energy to the character that only Keaton ever seems to have.
9. Drake Bell-Now while I may hate the show with a buring passion, Bell is not too bad a Spidey. Maybe with a better script he'd be better but I'm unwilling to watch the A:EMH episodes with him in protest of the controversy centering around the behind the scenes reasons for Bell's casting over Mr. Keaton. I'm not hating on Mr. Bell as his performance is similar to though a bit higher pitched and raspier than Keaton. Perhaps he suits best as a pre-teen Spidey considering my child Peter is voiced by Greg Ayres but now I'm rambling. Bell is not the worst but it will be a while before I really see him in the role.
10. Ben Diskin-Mr. Diskin, if your reading this I would like to say I loved your Eddie Brock, your the best Eddie I've ever heard and you are a good voice actor, but while your acting was good, I feel your casting as Spider-Man was a miss cast. Of the Spidey voice actors I like, your bottom barrel. Mr. Diskin is tollerable but I think he was completely miscasted.

That's my long winded two cents.

 7 Shout Outs!
1. Josh Keaton- Yeah I can't argue that Josh is amazing as Spiderman. He did the monolog great, you could feel the pain he felt from some of his decisions all while doing some good delivery and enegy on his jokes. Plus during the symbiote stuff you could really feel the darkness in his voice but was still subtle. I thought he would sound to young for the role but even in MvC 3 he still fits the part.

2.Christopher Daniel Barnes- basically the same as Josh. Christ was great with the monologging and really showed the choices he had to make seem hard to get through, really interesting. My main problem with him is during his symbiote time he went a bit over the top (the line "I'LL FOLLOW YOU TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH" comes to mind). Still a great actor and made a great Spiderman.

3. Neil Patrick Harris- I am a BIG NPH fan so I thought this casting was great. Though I should make it clear I'm basing this off of Shattered Dimmention since in the New Adventures he seemed too deep and a bit wooden at times. Anyway Neil had some good delivery with lines with good amount of energy and made him seem very charming yet silly (in a good way).

4. Drake Bell- I don't understand all the hate for Ultimate Spiderman especially the ones aimed at Drake. Drake does great with the smart mouth young Spiderman because...well that's all he's ever casted as. Hell he even played a parody of Peter in Superhero Movie (granted that's a crappy movie but still). Drake even has some good subtle moments such as when he talks about Uncle Ben in the first episode.

5. Quinton Flynn/James Taylor- Both are good, both deliver their jokes well and make Spiderman sound funny yet not over doing it. One draw back is for both is they don't get a chance to do more serious lines, though if you look at their past roles its safe to assume that they can do them well. James has a slight advantage since he stared in the game while Quinton was more secondary.

6. Dan Gilvezan- One of the better golden age voices and he's one of the reasons I like the show. He's cheesy but doesn't over do it but did have some good serious moments. There were tines where he did go a bit too cheesy.

7. Sam Riegel- Interesting change of pace for him and he does well. Problem is at times it sounds like he's trying to sound younger then he is but that doesn't happen a lot so he's fine.

8. Rino Romano- He's alright but I think he tries too hard to sound funny and he lack the energy that the others had.

9. Sean Marquette- Sounds a little too young and squeaky at times but was funny enough.

10. Ben Diskin/Chirst Gordon/Geoff Boothby- of my top ten they are the lowest because they lacked a certain energy for the role. All of their voices are interesting for the role but I can't help but feel they are a bit too cartoony for serious moments.

The rest aren't bad except for one: Mike Vaugh
I'm sorry, I'm sure he's a nice guy but only crap he never stops winying and I really hope that's not his normal voice because that got a little grating. At times he did a good delivery of a joke but not enough to save to save the performance. Mike if your reading this, I'm sorry but this was a miscast

@Smarttamarr94 If it makes you feel better, he's also Flynn Scifo, Donatello, Starscream, and the spoony bard from Final Fantasy IV.

Now, for a more realistic answer, the game was recorded by PCB Productions, and the voice director was Keith Arem. He's worked with Sam Riegel on Cross Edge, Persona 4 Arena, War for Cybertron, and probably more. So basically, the casting director was familiar with him and his work, and likely thought he'd be an appropriate choice.

said at 2:08 PM on Sat Sep 29 2012
@pete I'm sort of mixed on VA's having similar recycled performances, in some cases it can really work if their voice is awesome and fitting no matter which character they're portraying and they can even differentiate their voices sometimes (Tony Jay, Kevin Michael Richardson, etc.) but sometimes it gets tiresome and unfitting and the voice isn't even distinct or memorable (won't list any examples here incase I get flamed)

Sam here is sort of a mixed bag, I liked his Donatello performance, I thought it fit...but I'm not 100% sure it fits Spider-man. Then again, I haven't played the game myself, so I might not be able to write it off completely.
said at 4:06 PM on Sat Sep 29 2012
@Metabad It fits his science geek persona, and is good for a teenager and early Spider-Man which he played so it makes to use that voice but it wouldn't work for an older adult Spidey.
said at 7:00 AM on Fri Jan 4 2013
@Metabad Vocal similarities are everywhere in animation. If characters voiced by the same actor really drove me nuts, I'd stop watching cartoons altogether. :-P
said at 2:37 PM on Fri Jan 4 2013
@TheVengeanceKnight Like I said before I'm sort of mixed on it, sometimes it can really work, other times not so much. It all just depends on certain things really, like the character and the kind of voice used and such.

Drake bell: Although not the best of the bunch, I don't think he did as bad as everyone says. He's no Josh keaton, but it's not supposed to be. Drake and Josh are both different people with different vocal chords and different perceptions of the character. I am a bit upset that Josh got dubbed over by Drake on The Avengers show, but again, Drake's not a bad spidey.
Sam Riegel: Wow! Never would've guessed! He did great! And to think he was a ninja turtle before this... in fact they make fun of that fact in the game. Definitely up there with Josh and Chris.

I originally thought Josh voiced the perfect Spidey... but man I have to admit, even though the show is horribly underwhelming. Drake Bell is the one true gem of that show. His take on the web-slinger is fantastic! Definitely one of the best performances of all time in my honest opinion. He perfectly captures the youth, spirit and overall lovable annoying banter that Spider-Man provides to the Marvel Universe.

It's a tie for me, both Josh Keaton and Drake Bell are Amazing and Ultimate spidey :)

sean marquette in ultimate spider man (game) was ok in the game but drake bell in the ultimate spider-man (series) made it right.

CD Barnes and Josh Keaton and Neil P Harris and rino were pretty good.

Tobey Macguire was very calm talling his story.

JAT is a worthy sucessor.

ted schwartz was ok and dan gilvezan did great.

and rino has been steping in from time to time.

and paul soles has voice almost more than one character from marvel.

quinton flynn is better then mike vaughn and christopher gordon.

geoff boothby not so much...

patrick chivers and rino romano sounded alike...

Hey, guys!

HUGE fan of the site! I've learned SO much from it!! Can't wait for the next Act Your Voice Out Competition! Thought y'all might appreciate seeing The Death of Spider-Man Motion Comic Fan Film that a bunch of my geek friends and I did. Most of us are actually working voice actors who did this for fun and I'd love to share my take on 16 year old Ultimate Spidey with ya!! Hope you enjoy it!!

said at 1:17 PM on Fri Dec 30 2011
My favorites do to growing up with them as Spider-Man.

1: Paul Soles ----- Spider-Man (1967) I saw in repeats and it came out the year I was born.

2: Ted Schwartz --- Spider-Man (1981) ---
3: Dan Gilvezan --- Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends --

Both Ted and Dan were great and either one could have done the voice of Spider-Man for both series.

in fact at the time I was suprised Ted didn't continued with Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends. when he had done a great job in the solo Spider-man cartoon.

Josh Keaton does Spidey justice. I also liked Tobey Maguire as he can handle the mature Peter Parker side of Spider-man.
said at 11:41 PM on Sun Oct 9 2011
My top 3 voices for Spider-Man are:

3) Ted Schwartz - 80's solo Spider-Man series, the 1st time I remember seeing Spider-Man other than the comic-books & Atari game, but the 1st time I heard Spidey with a voice.
2) Josh Keaton - Spectacular Spider-Man / S-M.S.D & Edge of Time, has really brought back some character in Spidey (I absolutely hated NPH's voice for Mtv Spider-Man) and you could easily tell that Josh had a inner fan passion for Spidey.
1) Christopher Daniel Barnes - 90's series, S-M.S.D & Edge of Time, has voiced Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the longest running Spider-Man cartoon series to date, voiced Spidey in multiple tv commercials, return to voice Spidey now for 2 games & made those 2 Spider-Man's from each game the more popular (Noir in the 1st one out of a selection of 4 & 2099 in the 2nd out of a selection of 2), go on a lot of forum discussions and they'll say that CDB's voice is the voice they hear when reading a new Spider-Man comic-book to this day (much like myself), all in all CDB is the #1 voice of the Wall-Crawler ... 'Nuff Said!!.

Gonna go with Josh Keaton. SpiderDreamer said it best. He's funny, sympathetic, and can even be pretty dangerous. His performance is natural and he never goes too over-the-top. What's even more impressive that he managed to play a dramatically older version of the character in a recent game and did a pretty good job. I honestly didn't recognize him.

My second choice goes to James Arnold Taylor. Though, I'm kinda bias'd since he's one of my favorite voice actors of all time.

3rd choice...Barnes. Why is he here? I didn't like him in the original series. Well...I appreciate him much more now with Shattered Dimensions and Edge of Time. He does dramatic scenes quite well nowadays. And honestly, looking back, he's not so bad with comedic timing himself.

*looks down. My, has my opinion changed since then. Well, if we're talknig about Spider-Man in high school, then yeah, Josh Keaton does work well as Spidey.

As an adult, though, I do feel that NPH did a good job and is my favorite of the bunch, especially in Shattered Dimensions. His vocie for the MTV show a little too deep, but in SD, it was fine. That said, I still do think that Romano was good, too.

Also, agreeing with a lot of people that Mike Vaughn sucked.
said at 9:11 AM on Wed Feb 22 2012
@Anicomicgeek Upon completing Spider-Man: Edge of Time and rewatching some episodes of Spectacular, I'm changing my mind and vote. I'm now in the majority with everyone about Josh Keaton still being good as Spider-Man, though I still think that NPH is good, too.
said at 9:15 AM on Sun Aug 14 2011
Ooh... tough choice. There's a lot of talented folk here, but for me, there are only three:

1. Josh Keaton-He's the voice I've always imagined, but never *quite* crystallized in my head reading the comics. He's funny, sympathetic, and even dangerous at points. Easily the top of the heap.

2. Christopher Daniel Barnes-OK, some of his more dramatic scenes sound REALLY silly ("SHOCKERRRR!!! YOU can't escape ME!"). But when he's normal, snarky Spidey, he's quite good, and makes for a good, slightly older Peter Parker as well.

3. Neil Patrick Harris-Oh, come now. He's NPH. He wasn't given as much to work with writing-wise on the MTV show, but he did a nice job nonetheless, and possibly did even better as Amazing Spidey in Shattered Dimensions.

He did a pretty good job as adult Spidey in Edge of Time.
said at 1:08 AM on Sat Sep 8 2012
@Anicomicgeek I like his Shatteerd Dimnsions and Edge of Time performance better. Ulitmaite Spidey was hilarious in Shattered Dimensions and his Edge Of Time was as good as it sounded more mature like it should being older than both the Spectacular version and the Ultimate version he played.

I'm going to add that Barme was also the same age as Peter Parker when he was cast which is why yhe got the role.

Josh Keaton is a great teenage Spider-Man but Chris Barnes is great mature Spider-Man. Stories like Back in Black I hear his voice in.
said at 2:14 AM on Wed Jun 22 2011
For me, Josh Keaton is the definitive Spider-Man. Though I also like Christopher Daniel Barnes, Rino Romano, Neil Patrick Harris (though I vastly prefer his voice in Shattered Dimensions), Dan Gilvezan, Sean Marquette, Quinton Flynn, Benjamen Diskin, and James Arnold Taylor.

There have been a lot of people who have played Spidey before, some excellent, some good and some bad in my opinion. I think they picked the best 4 for Shattered Dimensions, and I'll say Rino came 5th since he was fairly cool.

Dan I'll say is 4th because I liked him in SD, haven't heard him much in his original show but in SD he was funny and enjoyed his performance.

3rd NPH, though I didn't like him much in his show, I really loved him in SD and actually thought in that game him or Josh was the best. But overall, I like him 3rd most.

An incredibly close 2nd is Josh Keaton. This guy gets Spidey and he's a massive fan, he was spectacular in Spectacular Spider-Man and was truly wonderful.

But my fave is Barnes. I know some people really don't like him, but wacth the old show, it was great. Barnes did a really great job and like Josh, gets the guy and is a geek for Spidey. Barnes showed great versatility and was great with the jokes. There were a lot of great scenes in TAS that Barnes nailed, see 'Turning Point' for a great example of an episode where Barnes truly is the Amazing Spider-Man.

First I find it werid how there are some VAs here that were the voice of Venom: Quinton and Ben. Both I find did a good sense of humor and did a good delivery of jokes. I find both acceptable.
Now Chirst Gordon and Geoff Boothby are...meh. Not bad but not great.
I hate Mike as Spiderman, just sounds so bad. I'm putting him in last place.
James and Toby did a good job capturing the humor yet able to be serious as what the Web-Head is. THough Toby should just an actor and not a voice actor so James is better than him in that area.
I've heard Rino long ago and now but...I just kinda have a mixed feelings about him. He did a good sense of humor but I can't picture him doing serious voice when it was needed. If I heard that I might like him more but I still like him though.
NPH was better in Shattered Dimmention. The deep voice he was doing here didn't really fit Spiderman when his real voice would have been so much better. In Shattered Dim. he was really good so I wouldn't him being Spidey in other stuff.
Sean was...alright I guess. He sounded a little bit to young but this might have something to do with me knowing him as Mac from Fosters. Liek some of the others he was good with the humor so he gets a pass.
As for the 'older voices' I like Dan the most since he did have the best humor and had the best voice acting. He also shows he can still be a good Spiderman in Shattered Dimmention.
Now for the best two Chirst and Josh. I grew up with Chirst so I know his depth, humor delivery, and his range but Josh shows that he has just has much range, depth, ect. I'm going with Josh just because his delvery is a little better than Chirst.
Sorry for the long review :D
said at 8:17 AM on Wed Apr 20 2011
r u guy's even serious?? Paul Soles was the best spiderman ever. Watch any of the 1967 Spiderman series and listen to how he makes Parker sound like a wimp out of costume and makes Spidey sound legendary. He even changes up the personalities! If i needed saving thts the voice id wanna hear!

Josh Keaton is the winner for me. His voice is very easy to mold, going from humorous and light hearted, to serious and angry. I hope he gets more work as Spidey. He's earned it!
said at 9:15 AM on Sun Mar 6 2011
Christopher Daniel Barnes IS Spider-Man. I feel that the hype of Spectacular's excellent storyline is what really drove people to vouch for Keaton instead of the consideration whether Josh is qualify to take up the webs or not.

CDB's Spidey has a more serious and mature tone to it, something that could last for ages to come as I read through my Spider-Man comic books while using his voice, as I see Peter GROW UP. It'd be a feat to reimagine Keaton's voice becoming older to fit this circumstance, an unnecessary one, too.
said at 1:28 PM on Thu Mar 10 2011
@OminousFlare so the writing makes him a better actor? did u ever think that maybe he did a younger spider-man voice because the series was set in high school?
said at 5:48 PM on Sat Mar 12 2011
@franklin Which is, as I said, an unsuitable voice for the long run. We have yet to listen to how Keaton takes the adult version of Spider-Man, something CDB is more capable of handling. And throughout the 40 years of comics, I think it's fair to say that Spider-Man spent more years in his college/grad school years than his high school years. So wouldn't it be kinda essential for someone to provide the proper voice for those years which took a bigger part in Spidey's life?
said at 5:50 PM on Sat Mar 12 2011
@franklin And yes, that's at least what I get from the Keaton fanboys. 8 outta 10 of them who've argued with me didn't give me a proper reason just exactly why Keaton is such a fantastic VA.
said at 7:42 PM on Wed Mar 16 2011

Because he's the most versatile out of them. He's played an adult Spidey in MvC3 and the DS Shattered Dimensions. He can handle a wide range of emotions, and is very energetic. Barnes is OK, but he does overreact in dramatic moments and sounds cheesy sometimes.
said at 5:16 PM on Thu Mar 24 2011
Barnes is pretty versatile, too. His Spider-Man Noir in Shattered Dimensions was terrific, presenting the dark yet sprightly voice given in the game that's clearly distinguished from the TAS version.

As for the dramatic and cheesy moments, I blame the writers who wrote the scripts. The wise-cracking moments Barnes did was great, and if you ask anyone, Barnes is known to be one of the most versatile VAs in TAS, known to shift to different tones and styles while voicing Spidey.

His voicing of Noir proves that.
said at 9:06 AM on Wed Sep 12 2012

He did a very good job as adult Spidey in Edge of Time and provded the same excellence there than he did in Spectacular, so yeah, Keaton is very much a suitable voice for the long run.
