Canadian soccer star Alphonso Davies is lending his voice to the German version of the upcoming film Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
Sony Pictures Germany confirmed Davies, who plays for Bundesliga club Bayern Munich and the Canadian national team, will voice the character Spider-Man '67, a nod to the number he wore with the Vancouver Whitecaps as a teenager.
Earlier this month the 22-year-old from Edmonton was voted onto the Bundesliga team of the season. Davies, who has 39 caps for Canada with 13 goals and 16 assists, had a goal and four assists for Bayern this season, which was cut short by a thigh injury suffered April 23.
Last month, he was named CONCACAF Men's Player of the Year for the second year in a row. Davies, who plays fullback for Bayern Munich but often occupies a more attacking role for Canada, won the 2022 CONCACAF award after scoring Canada's first-ever goal at the FIFA men's World Cup in its return to the soccer showcase for the first time in 36 years.Read more on cbc.ca
