Who is Kevin Conroy?

ACTOR Kevin Conroy announced he is delving back into the Batman universe in January 2022.

Conroy has voiced Bruce Wayne, otherwise known as Batman, since the early 1990s.

Who is Kevin Conroy?

Kevin Conroy started as the voice of Batman in 1992 in Batman: The Animated Series. The show lasted through 1995 and two years later, he reprised the role in The New Batman Adventures.

It had never been part of the plan to do voiceover work, Conroy told GeekFeed in 2016, adding that he had gone to Julliard, he was set to perform live acting on stage, but the jobs just didn't pay enough.

"I was going to be the great, classical stage actor. I just didn’t know I couldn’t make a living at it," he said.

He told the outlet at the time, that there weren't enough jobs to fit all the stage actors in New York City, so while he worked on Broadway, he did voiceovers commercially for extra money.

"I did a Paco Rabanne tagline and those seven words made me $25k over the course of a year. I thought, wow, I probably made that much doing theatre so I thought wow. But that led to animated roles … and that’s where it came from," he said.

Becoming a voice actor was easy for Conroy to slip into and his comradery with other stage actors made him the ideal person for the roles.

“Stage actors make for great voice actors. We interact better with each other and uniquely enough, Warner Brothers likes to get all of the actors together – like a radio play," he said.

"The better you interact with the other actors, the better the performance."

"This is Batman calling you from Wayne Manor with a very important announcement," Conroy said in a video on TikTok.

"I will be joining the council, and our objective is to keep the secrets over the rogues. So watch out, because we are patrolling Gotham."
