"I am vengeance. I am the night. I. Am. Batman!"

Kevin Conroy (born November 30, 1955) is an American actor. Becoming a professional actor in the 1970s, Conroy has performed in numerous productions over the years, particularly in theatre.

Then he became the goddamn Batman... although never physically.

Beginning with Batman: The Animated Series, Conroy lent his voice to the iconic character and hasn't looked back since. His performances as Batman are often lauded, especially the manner in which he is able to vocally portray Batman and Bruce Wayne as two different people. He would continue to play the role of the Dark Knight every time he appeared in the DC Animated Universe, a continuity which includes Superman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond, Justice League as well as numerous Batman-related games. Conroy reprises his role in Batman: Gotham Knight, Superman/Batman: Public Enemies, Superman/Batman: Apocalypse, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City, Justice League: Doom, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, Injustice: Gods Among Us, DC Universe Online, Batman: Assault on Arkham, and Justice League Action. Though he did not reprise his role as Batman in Arkham Asylum's prequel Batman: Arkham Originsnote , he did return for Arkham City's sequel, Batman: Arkham Knight.

To date, he has portrayed Batman more than any other actor, voice or live-action, to have assumed the role. This is mirrored by Mark Hamill as The Joker, also in many of the above works.

Some of his other roles include Captain Sunshine on The Venture Bros.,note  and various characters from both Max Payne and Jak and Daxter.

"I am vengeance, I am the tropes, I AM BATMAN!"

  • Badass Baritone: Why else do you think he works so perfectly as the voice of Batman?
  • I Am Not Spock: Completely and totally averted. He makes no secret that he loves playing Batman and will take every opportunity to voice him that he can.
