Following all the controversy surrounding the Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League video game, it’s “coincidentally” learned Kevin Conroy is not done voicing Batman.
Regarding the controversy, fans aren’t happy with what happens to Batman in the game (spoilers), which they don’t feel is respectable. It was also thought the game was the last time Kevin Conroy voiced Batman but it turns out that applies only to video games.
So following the footage hitting the net, IGN has conveniently “learned from a source with knowledge of the situation” that Kevin Conroy will have two more voice performances.
Back for Batman: Caped Crusader
One of the performances is for Bruce Timm, J.J. Abrams, Matt Reeves, and Ed Brubaker Batman: Caped Crusader animated series which is getting released on Amazon Prime Video.
IGN notes Kevin Conroy did record for the show prior to his death but they say they aren’t sure if he will be specifically voicing Batman.
Update: Bruce Timm shoots down IGN’s claims:
I have no idea if the CRISIS part of IGN’s supposed scoop is true or not, but Kevin Conroy did not record a voice for CAPED CRUSADER. We were hoping to have him do a voice for the new show (and he was eager to do it) but sadly he passed away before we could make it happen.
As I have to do every so often, I will remind you all once again to take all un-sourced ‘news’ items in the sci-fi/comics/entertainment cybersphere with a huge grain of salt. Occasionally these ‘leaks‘ actually turn out to be true, but often as not they’re just cynical clickbait.
Reprising his Batman: The Animated Series role
The second performance is said to be for the Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths, Part Three animated movie where Kevin Conroy will provide the voice of Bruce Wayne and Batman from Batman: The Animated Series.
Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths, Part One was recently released and Part Two gets released later this year.
Kevin Conroy also provides the voice of Batman in the MultiVersus video game which is supposed to be getting a big push with a new relaunch in early 2024 following the closing down of Open Beta last year.
Kevin Conroy passed away due to cancer at the age of 66 in Burbank, California on November 10, 2022.
