Russian audiences weren’t too pleased with Spidey’s voice in “Captain America: Civil War,” to the extent that they’re petitioning to replace the voice actor for future Marvel releases. Vladimir Kanukhin — who made his theatrical debut with “Civil War” — voiced the character for the Russian print of the film.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, a Change.org petition has launched to replace Kanukhin because of general criticisms that his take on Spider-Man sounds too young. “This is important because Spider-Man’s [Russian] voice didn’t absolutely correspond to the character…Okay, he is a school kid, but that doesn’t mean he has to sound like a 10 year old,” one signee said.
Another signee noted, “In recent years, movies haven’t been dubbed well in Russia…Mostly, there are problems with translation, but sometimes wrong dubbing actors are selected, and viewers have to hear them for the entire movie.”
So far, 1,250 individuals have signed the petition. 1,500 are needed before the petition can be sent to Neva, the production company responsible for dubbing the Russian print of “Civil War.”
