Several voice actors from this movie have played before some Marvel character or are already playing one. Chloe Bennet (voice of Daisy Johnson/Quake) plays that same character in Agents of SHIELD. Booboo Stewart (voice of Victor Kohl/Exile) played James Proudstar/Warpath in X-Men: Days of Future Past and voices Jack O'Lantern in Spider-Man (2018). Milana Vayntrub (voice of Doreen Green/Squirrel Girl) plays that same character in Marvel's New Warriors. Ming-Na Wen (voice of Hala the Accuser) plays Melinda May in Agents of SHIELD. Steven Weber (voice of Captain George Stacy) voices Norman Osborn, Trapster and Venom in Ultimate Spider-Man. And Tara Strong (voice of Mary Jane Watson) voiced her in Ultimate Spider-Man. Dove Cameron (voice of Gwen Stacy / Ghost-Spider) plays Ruby Hale in Agents of SHIELD, but she also voiced Spider-Gwen in Ultimate Spider-Man vs. the Sinister 6. See more »

Meh, it's nothing you haven't seen before, but certainly nothing worth the hype
When I first saw the promo for this film airing on the Disney Channel, I was excited. It seemed to have a fresh perspective on the young heroes trope, and overall looked decent. I watched this film recently on Disney XD and from what I've seen, it was quite underwhelming. The story, tone, and pacing weren't too bad, the show kind of looks fine, and the overall feel is somewhat refreshing. The problem? The characters are a bit dull and leave little impact and the story of a young team fighting for justice just feels rehashed and done before. It's almost like Disney/Marvel's take on Teen Titans or Young Justice, but not in a refreshing, unique way, more like in a paint-by-the-numbers, rehash, seen-there-been-there kind of way. While I don't think this film is the absolute worst nor amongst the worst of Marvel, it certainly wasn't one I liked. I wanted to like this movie, but all the way I felt myself yawning and pretty disappointed. I wanted to see more of Spider Gwen like how we did in Marvel Rising: Initiation, a predecessor to this film. However, this film isn't the best, but it isn't completely terrible, it's just a rehashed, average film that's been done before and in better ways. I really wanted to like this one, but by trying to be too much at once, and not adding its own spin on a trope that's been done so many times before, it becomes a below-average experience to watch. I do applaud the team for changing up the art style a bit and giving us something to work with, however, it still gets a score of 5.6/10 (average). It looks like a promising Marvel film, but turns out to be yet another average TV film from Disney and Marvel Entertainment.
I believe you can do better than this Disney/Marvel. I still have faith in you.
