Tony Todd Appears To Be Doing Mocap For Marvel’s Spider-Man 2
Candyman actor Tony Todd appears to have begun mocap for Marvel’s Spider-man 2. The original as well as Spider-man: Miles Morales were both a huge success for Insomniac Games and PlayStation. Todd’s involvement can only be seen as a good thing, as he is a very talented performer.
Tony Todd is doing motion capture and voice overs for the character Venom, who is prominently featured in Spider-man 2. We can’t wait to see how his performance turns out, as his voice and build seem like a perfect match for the character. Insomniac Games chose the right actor for the job. Hopefully, fans won’t have to wait long to see a glimpse of the character in action. There ought to be a trailer or two to tide Venom fans over until the game’s release.
Early riser. #Mocap time.
