Twenty-five years ago, Batman: The Animated Series cemented Kevin Conroy as the definitive voice of Batman.
At age 17, Kevin earned a full scholarship to attend Juilliard School of Drama, where he studied under actor John Houseman. While there, he almost ended up living with future Superman actor Christopher Reeve, but ended up rooming with Robin Williams who was in the same group as both Kevin and Kelsey Grammer.
Beyond the 85-episode run on Batman: The Animated Series, he has been the voice of Bruce Wayne in subsequent series The New Batman Adventures, Batman Beyond, Justice League and Justice League Unlimited. His tenure in the role also includes the DCAU films Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993), Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero (1998), Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker (2000), and Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman (2003). He also voiced Batman for the character's guest appearances in Superman: The Animated Series, Static Shock and The Zeta Project. Apart from the DCAU, Conroy has also voiced Batman in the DC Universe Animated Original Movies Batman: Gotham Knight (2008), Superman/Batman: Public Enemies (2009), and Superman/Batman: Apocalypse (2010).
Additionally, he voiced Batman in the video games The Adventures of Batman and Robin, Batman Vengeance, Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu, as well as the 2001 revamp of Batman Adventure - The Ride, located at the Warner Bros. Movie World theme park in Queensland, Australia. Conroy also voiced the Phantom Stranger and an alternate Batman in Batman: The Brave and the Bold, another animated series unrelated to the DCAU.
Most recently, Kevin returned to voice the iconic Batman role in a trilogy of blockbuster video games, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City and Batman: Arkham Knight. It was recently announced that he will return as the Dark Knight in the video game Injustice 2, slated for release in May 2017.
