BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES Star And Legendary Voice Actor Kevin Conroy Has Passed Away

It's been reported that Batman: The Animated Series and Arkham trilogy star Kevin Conroy has passed away, meaning we have to say goodbye to an actor who defined the Caped Crusader for an entire generation.

We have some very sad news to share with you today as it's being reported that voice actor Kevin Conroy has passed away following a short battle with cancer. Conroy was 66 years old.

Despite having a number of noteworthy live-action credits to his name, Conroy will be best known to most of you for voicing the title character in Batman: The Animated Series. He also starred in the classic Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, and reprised the role in a number of TV shows, including Superman: The Animated Series and Batman Beyond

Conroy returned to the role on countless occasions, including in many of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment's DCAU movies. However, it was his work in the Arkham trilogy of video games that won the actor a new generation of fans, while he also received widespread acclaim for reuniting with Mark Hamill in Batman: The Killing Joke (which received a theatrical release).

He'd later get the opportunity to finally play Bruce Wayne in live-action when he appeared as a Kingdom Come-inspired villainous Dark Knight in The CW's Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover. 

Conroy's last time playing Batman was in the MultiVersus video game that came out this year, while there have been reports he was set to lend his voice to Thomas Wayne in the upcoming Batman: Caped Crusader TV series dropped by HBO Max. It's unclear whether he recorded anything for that one, however. 

We've lost a true great in Conroy, and he will be missed. I was actually fortunate enough to speak with the actor back in 2017 (you can read that here if you're interested), and it was clear he loved playing Batman. More than anything, he was a fan of the character, and quite obviously cared a lot about how the superhero is portrayed on screen, no matter who was playing him.

Our thoughts go out to Kevin's friends and family at this time. RIP.
