Very sad news: our beloved voice of Batman, Kevin Conroy, died yesterday. He’s been ill for a while but he really put in a lot of time at the cons, to the joy of all of his fans. He will be sorely missed not just by the cast of the series but by his legion of fans all over the world. Below are pictures of Kevin with Loren Lester who plays Robin another with me and and Tara Strong who is in the later episodes of Batman cartoons. And then finally, one of Kevin and me in front of the huge audiences we used to get when we did our panels. RIP, friend.😢
Conroy first appeared as Batman/Bruce Wayne in “Batman: The Animated Series,” which aired from 1992 to 1995. His distinctive, gravelly voice quickly became synonymous with the cartoon character, which he went on to voice in a variety of other projects over the next two decades.
Conroy’s death was mourned on Twitter by thousands of fans, including several prominent figures in the comic book industry.
Conroy, who was born in New York but raised in Connecticut, studied at Juilliard, where he shared a room with Robin Williams.
Following graduation, he worked in Shakespeare plays, soap operas, and sitcoms, including appearances on “Murphy Brown” and “Cheers.” His career, however, did not take off until he began voicing Batman in his mid-thirties.
Conroy, who was openly gay, received praise earlier this year for writing his own story, “Finding Batman,” which recounted his life and experiences as a gay man.
