Kevin Conroy, an actor who voiced several iterations of Batman across film, TV and games, has died at the age of 66. 

The actor passed away after “a short battle with cancer.”

Since his debut as Bruce Wayne in Batman: The Animated Series thirty years ago, he has appeared in a number of television series, feature films, and video games.

He also provided the voice of the superhero in the video games Arkham Knight and Arkham City and appeared in an episode of Batwoman in 2019.

His agent, Steven Neibert, stated to the BBC, “The voiceover community has lost a legend.

I worked with him for more over 25 years and am utterly devastated.

Andrea Romano, the casting director, described Conroy as a “close buddy.”

She said, “I will always remember Kevin’s wonderful heart, beautifully deep laugh, and genuine love of life.”

DC Comics expressed “great sadness” over the news.

Mark Hamill, who portrayed Batman’s archenemy The Joker in Batman animations and video games, said in a statement that Conroy was “one of my favorite people on the planet” and that he “loved him like a brother.”

Conroy stated in a 2017 interview with The Hollywood Reporter that he drew inspiration for the voice of Batman from the 1930s film The Scarlet Pimpernel.

“I portrayed Bruce Wayne as a sort of comical playboy to balance out the gloomy tone of Batman,” he explained.
