    Electronic Arts and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced today they have secured an all-star cast for the voices in Superman Returns: The Videogame. The game will feature the voice and likeness of Brandon Routh (Superman/Clark Kent) as well as the voices of Kevin Spacey (Lex Luthor), Kate Bosworth (Lois Lane), Parker Posey (Kitty Kowalski) and Sam Huntington (Jimmy Olsen), all reprising their roles from the upcoming Warner Bros. Pictures film directed by Bryan Singer.

    Launching with the film this summer on June 28, Superman Returns: The Videogame allows players to experience a real sense of flying, and master Superman's unrivaled powers in order to save Metropolis. Based on the classic DC Comics books as well as the upcoming motion picture, Superman Returns: The Videogame draws from more than 60 years of comic lore to create the ultimate open-world super hero experience.

    Superman Returns: The Videogame is currently in development by EA Tiburon in Orlando, Fla. and will be released on the Xbox 360(TM) videogame and entertainment system from Microsoft, as well as current generation platforms and handheld game systems. More information can be found at BeSuperman.com.

    Not sure how the process works, but it seems they add it in later on.

    I know that line is a little vague, but does that mean the film might get pushed up as SciWolfe and I previously speculated?
     
  5. :up: me neither but at least the game will have autentic voiceovers. :)
     
  6. i think they usually release the games before the movie. i think spiderman 2 was a week before.

    That is usually how they play it, but the way they word it makes it seem like both the movie and videogame are arriving on the 28th.

    Revenge of the Sith did not have the original cast for voice actors. It's not always a given.

    Uh, where did I say that? :confused: No, I didn't buy it. I always wait to see if a game is reviewed well before considering buying a game, and this one wasn't.

    I think it was damn obvious they were doing voiceovers, just thought it was interesting they were doing it now, and that how they worded the release date.

    I think it's good news. I also hope the voice for that toy that has the soundbites is NOT Routh (the one that says "I am Superman", and "Metropolis is in trouble, turn left" or whatever) because it sounds terrible.

    April 18, 2006: Actors Work on Both "Superman Returns" Movie and Videogame

    www.supermanhomepage.com

    The Hollywood Reporter has posted an article about how the cast of "Superman Returns" also lent their voices to "Superman Returns: The Videogame"...
    "Superman Returns: The Videogame" will reach stores June 26 -- four days before the Man of Steel returns to the big screen in North America, but the similarities go deeper than their release dates.

    Tying the movie and game worlds together are the voice and likeness of "Superman Returns" star Brandon Routh, as well as the voices of Kevin Spacey (Lex Luthor), Kate Bosworth (Lois Lane), Parker Posey (Kitty Kowalski) and Sam Huntington (Jimmy Olsen). Most of the cast worked in Los Angeles sound studios for the game, while Posey recorded her dialogue in Germany.

    "Brandon Routh is a gamer," said Jason Hall, senior VP at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, which partnered on the project with Electronic Arts. "It's great to use him to create connectivity between the film and the game. The acting talent in Hollywood is getting more into games. Voice-over work for video games is something that's fun for many of them to do."

    Chris Gray, executive producer of "Superman Returns: The Videogame" at Electronic Arts, made a concerted effort to ensure that the game was true to the new direction of the revitalized franchise. He worked directly with film director Bryan Singer and screenwriters Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris, in addition to his team of 150 people at EA's Tiburon Studio in Florida, and traveled to the film's Australian set to get an authentic feel for the project.

    Gray said using the movie's actors was part of his drive to draw gamers into the emotional mind-set of the property.

    "Using Hollywood actors in games brings good acting," Hall said. But consumers don't buy video games because actors are in them, he added. "The real benefit, beyond the extra marketing attention, is that you have someone who's good at acting delivering the performance. It comes down to the talent in the game."

    EA brought in video game writer Flint Dille and comic scribe Marv Wolfman to expand the game's story line and provide gamers with surprises. The interactive adventure expands beyond the film's plot to incorporate such comic villains as Parasite, Metallo, Bizarro and the property's 60 years of heritage, in addition to giving players a sense of flying and having the requisite superpowers to defend Metropolis.
