As it recently did for Aquaman, YouTube channel Screen Junkies has brought its brand of humor to send up Sony's Oscar winner Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and the voices behind the fanmade levity dive deep into a multiverse of their own making.
Like the push of a button on a collider that exploded the titular Spider-Verse, the Honest Trailer voice cast balloons to a fantastic five of Epic Voices. Epic Voice Guy, Jon Bailey, is joined by Epic Geek Girl Felicia Day, Epic Dungeon Master Matt Mercer, Epic Telenovela Woman Vanessa Gritton and the Outback Jack of voice people, Australian Voice Guy, aka Mr. Sunday Movies.
Epic Voice Guy leads the proceedings until interrupted by Epic Geek Girl, an Honest Trailer voice from another reality except "sunny, upbeat and emotionally healthier." Together, they crack wise about the unique animation style, meta hat-tips to other superhero outings and Sony product placement before the booth is crowded by the final three voices.
Epic Dungeon Master, standing in for Noir Spider-Man, introduces himself as "earning his keep while being critical about movies." Epic Telenovela Woman puts the passion in Honest Trailers (and speaks with subtitles). Australian Voice Guy is, well, Australian -- noobs! He doesn't need to say much for it to sound cool or funny, and it helps he fills in as Spider-Ham.
They have plenty of good things to say about Into the Spider-Verse. Epic Voice Guy and Dungeon Master sum it up well as "a movie that sounded like a terrible idea when you first heard about it... but ended up so good we can't wait for more Miles (and Gwen)."
Even though his new playmates couldn't stay, Bailey hopes they come back to see Morbius with him. Until that day comes, there are stolen jokes, interruptions and Spider-Men galore in "Bug Hero 6."
