Vanessa Marshall

Vanessa Marshall talks to our very own Brandon about WONDER WOMAN at NYCC 2017. Marshall is known for her voice-over roles for animated series, films, and video games. Marshall can be heard in: STAR WARS REBELS, YOUNG JUSTICE, and THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN.

ComicsVerse: Brandon Bloxdorf here at New York Comic Con 2017, hanging out with Vanessa Marshall, the voice of Wonder Woman. You’re watching ComicsVerse. Vanessa, Wonder Woman has been blowing up this last year or two-

Vanessa Marshall: This is true —

ComicsVerse: And you’ve been a part of that for even longer.

Vanessa Marshall: Yes.

ComicsVerse: What’s it like for you now, seeing the embrace of Wonder Woman, and you as a character?

Vanessa Marshall: I think it’s fantastic. I’ve loved Wonder Woman ever since I was a little girl. I watched Lynda Carter, and then watched the Justice League cartoons. I love Susan Eisenberg’s Wonder Woman. I’m so thrilled that now there’s gonna be this box set.

We can get this animated version, and the fact that the movie did so well, I just … I think it’s really a wonderful time for young girls with all these characters to look up to, that are blowing up the way they are. I find that moms and daughters are both going with the same amount of passion the brand, so it’s really great.

ComicsVerse: What’s it like for you? What does Wonder Woman mean to you, not only as a voice actor but as a person at this point?

Vanessa Marshall: Well, I think she is truly an ethical, honorable person. She stands up for what’s right, and those who can’t stand up for themselves. I feel like those personality traits are vital, particularly in this world right now. In a weird way, she’s everything.

My best friend’s daughter wants to be Wonder Woman for Halloween. It just made so happy, because I think it bodes well for our future as a country. If there are lots of women running around wanting to do the right thing, so protect those who can’t protect themselves, I think we’re gonna be okay. It’s inspiring to see that. I’m really, really happy.

ComicsVerse: That’s great. Seeing all of your stuff put together into one giant compilation for the world to see all together, how does that feel? Are you excited to see this box set?

Vanessa Marshall: Oh, I’m thrilled to see the box set. Yeah, November 7 we’ve got to get on this because there’s only 20,000 of them. They’re numbered. I keep saying this over and over again, because I can’t impress that enough, that you gotta get one.

ComicsVerse: Nice. Okay, cool.

Vanessa Marshall: I know I’m gonna get mine for sure. They offered to give me one, but I want to get it. That’s part of being a fan, you have to-

ComicsVerse: The exclusive, yeah —

Vanessa Marshall: Yeah. Own that content, plus all the special short animated films that are on there. There are a few panels. There’s a lot of extras. There are coins that you can get. There’s just a lot that comes with it. It’s not just the films, and the layout of it is just beautiful. I think fans will be thrilled with it.

ComicsVerse: Nice. Thank you so much for taking the time to hang out with us for a few moments.
