Jeph Loeb's first episode as Executive Vice President, Head of Television under Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes was the episode "Along Came a Spider", and instantly the episode has drawn controversy over the dubbing over of a actor who voiced Spider-Man.
The episode, "Along Came a Spider" had just aired in Australia along with numerous new episodes of Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. The show will return with new episodes in the US supposedly on June 24th.
Now for the controversy of Spider-Men itself stems from Josh Keaton, the voice of Spider-Man for Spectacular Spider-Man, confirmed via his Facebook his voice was dubbed over with Drake Bell, current voice of Spidey on Ultimate Spider-Man. Mr. Keaton even confirmed that his reprisal would have gone more than one episode.
It should be also of note that J.K. Simmons voice of J Jonah Jameson on Ultimate Spider-Man also reprised his role in the episode, however it should be noted via this reporter his voice felt dubbed over more so than Spidey.
Even more, Daran Norris, who voiced Jonah on the Spetacular, played a side character in the episode adding more fuel to the fire. However Norris hasn't confirmed anywhere if he too was dubbed over.
