I don’t know why I haven’t watched any episodes of Marvel Super Hero Squad cartoon yet. I mean even if it isn’t particularly good, the voice cast is brilliant — frankly, there’s no excuse for not watching a show where George Takei voices Galactus. And the next season’s voice casting is equally brilliant, as it includes…
? Ty Burrell from Modern Family as Captain Marvel ? Katee Sackhoff as She-Hulk ? Jim Parsons from The Big Bang Theory as Nightmare ? Adam West as Darkhawk Knighthawk (ha!) ? Jane Lynch as Kang’s daughter Nebula
And that’s just the roles TV Guide knows of, because Jonathan Frakes, James Marsters, Michael Dorn, Mark Hamill, Kevin Sorbo and John Barrowman will be doing voices as well. Although if Barrowman’s playing Northstar I’m going to sue someone for sexual orientation typecasting. (Via TV Guide)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
