Astonishing X-Men Motion Comic

Marvel released a trailer for another Motion Comic - from Joss Whedon's Astonishing X-Men run. I actually just read this run just awhile ago - and, jeez, the movement in this trailer looks silly compared to the actual comic. Granted, the story was never originally intended to be a Motion Comic - but it still looks horribly less impressive.

But what really annoys me about it is the weak voice acting! It would be awesome to hear the lines from Joss Whedon's run said aloud - just like on TV - but they got really crummy voice actors to do it. And what stopped them, really, from just getting the actors who play the voices from "Wolverine and the X-Men". Every single character-voice from Wolverine and X-Men would have been better than this - from Wolverine, Cyclops, Emma, Beast, Kitty. So, really, why the dumbed down voice cast for this Motion Comic? It doesn't make sense. At least print comics won't be going away anytime soon.

Here's a video of the trailer
