What happened to Kevin Conroy? Batman voice actor dies at 66


Kevin Conroy, who portrayed Batman for many years, has died at the age of 66 after a brief battle with cancer, according to his agent. Batman: The Animated Series and Arkham games were two of his most popular roles. Kevin Conroy started his career on stage before appearing on TV shows like Dynasty, Another World and Cheers. He was cast in the animated Batman series in 1992 and gained worldwide recognition for the role. Director Andrea Romano, who cast Kevin Conroy, said, “Kevin’s warm heart, dazzling deep laugh and pure love of life will always be with me.

In Batman’s 80-year history, no one has played the role of the Dark Knight more. Mark Hamill said in his statement that for generations he has been the definitive Batman. It was one of those ideal situations where they got exactly the right person for the right part and the world is better off. Warner Brothers Animation said in a statement that Kevin Conroy’s performance will forever remain one of the best portrayals of the Dark Knight in any medium. Kevin Conroy had little to no foundation in cartooning and he started out as a novice in voice acting. His Batman is husky, painful, and dark. His Bruce Wayne was light and ran. His inspiration for the contrasting voice came, he said, from The Scarlet Pimpernel, a 1930s film about a British aristocrat who continues to live a double life.

Batman actor Kevin Conroy has died at the age of 66 after a brief battle with cancer.

For many Batman fans, Kevin Conroy was the definitive voice of the Caped Crusader in Batman: The Animated Series. He passed away at the age of 66. Warner Brothers announced on Friday that Kevin Conroy has passed away after battling cancer. Kevin Conroy was the voice of Batman in the animated series known to have aired from 1992-1996, often opposite Mark Hamill’s Joker. He went on to be the exclusive animated voice for Batman, including 15 films, 400 TV episodes, and 24 video games (including the Batman: Arkham and Injustice franchises). Recently, Kevin Conroy composed a deeply personal story for the DC Pride 2022 comic anthology about how he helped him identify as gay. Bruce Wayne’s pain of witnessing people who campaign against crime get killed is because he helped make himself comfortable. Thirty years of dissatisfaction, confusion, denial, love, longing, what do you long for? He wrote the anchor, the harbor, the feeling that everything was safe and secure, the feeling of identity into the story of Finding Batman. Actually, I can relate. It’s a terrain I know well. I felt Batman rise from deep within.

Fellow celebrity Mark Hamill, who played the Joker in the ’90s animated series and Arkham games, said in a tweet that he cares for Conroy and likes him like a brother. He even published an announcement praising himself as a great entertainer. For generations he has been the definitive Batman. “It was one of those ideal situations where you had the right people for certain parts, and the world was a better one,” he said in a statement. His rhythm and nuance, tone and delivery – all of these made my performances shine. He was the best accomplice. It was a particularly relatable and imaginative experience. I think without him he never would have been able to do it. He will continue to be my Batman. Kevin Conroy was also a regular on the convention circuit, warmly welcoming fans. Diane Pershing, who plays Toxin Ivy in the animated series, said in a Facebook post, “His fans worldwide, as well as the cast of the animated series, will miss him very much.
