Why I Do What I Do
Kevin Conroy passing away is devastating. His iteration of Batman is the first character I ever loved and set me on the life path I’m currently on.
When discussing the all time pantheon Batman actors, his name will forever deserve to be mentioned near the top.
Rest In Peace. pic.twitter.com/cvwAzrpdb6— Eric Italiano (@ericitaIiano) November 11, 2022
Kevin Conroy's work on Batman: The Animated Series helped inspire a much wider pool of new creative talent than a Batman comic ever could. Including us.prevnext
Death Is An Injustice
So sad to hear about Kevin Conroy. He was THE voice of Batman for generations, including our INJUSTICE games.
So iconic. What a loss. RIP :( pic.twitter.com/JpgRwIGDAh— Ed Boon (@noobde) November 11, 2022
The game developer of DC's hit Injustice game (and universe) showed his condolences. Conroy's work reached well into gaming, as his Batman voice also defined Injustice and the equally successful Arkham Asylum game series.prevnext
Great Gifts Gone
In the documentary I Know That Voice, Kevin Conroy tells this unforgettable story about working at a food relief station in Manhattan in the days after 9/11. It’s one of my favorite stories he told about the power of his talents. Rest In Peace Mr. Conroy pic.twitter.com/CVb6vLQlEb— Henry Gilbert (@hEnereyG) November 11, 2022
