Who Voices Spider-Man in Episode 5?
The What If…? opening credits confirmed Hudson Thames as the actor voicing Peter Parker and his alias, Zombie Hunter Spider-Man.
Questions were previously asked as to why Chris Evans was not onboard to voice Captain America when so many other MCU actors are amongst the returning roster. Most speculated that it was down to the show’s budget or possibly scheduling conflicts, which caused other actors to replace Evans, Scarlett Johansson, and Tom Holland.
Thames is an established American actor who has predominantly appeared on the small screen to fulfill an impressive amount of roles since 2006, including Malibu Country and The Secret Life of the American Teenager.
