Kevin Conroy passed away following a brief fight with cancer. He was best known for portraying Batman in the long-running Warner Bros. television series “Batman: The Animated Series.” He was 66.
Fox Kids originally broadcast “Batman: The Animated Series” for 85 episodes between 1992 and 1995. Many comic book fans and critics praised Conroy’s rich, gravelly Batman voice, with many hailing the actor as the ideal Caped Crusader. Additionally, the series included Mark Hamill’s iconic portrayal of the Joker.
Kevin was perfect, according to a statement from Hamill. He was one of my all-time favourite people, and I cherished him as a sibling. His genuine concern for those around him was evident in everything he did. My spirits were raised each time I saw or chatted with him.
Conroy’s portrayal of Batman in several other DC products, such as the video game series “Batman: Arkham” and “Injustice,” lasted because of how well-liked he was in the role. Additionally, he made cameo appearances in several DC Universe Animated Original Movies, such as “Batman: Gotham Knight” (2008), “Superman/Batman: Public Enemies” (2009), “Justice League: Doom” (2012), “Batman: The Killing Joke” (2016), and “Justice League vs. the Fatal Five” (2019), among others.

Conroy’s final Batman-related credit is for the 2019 animated “Justice League” movie, while his most recent Batman-related video game credit is for the earlier this year released “MultiVersus” from Warner Bros.
In a 2014 interview, Conroy told DC, “He’s such an iconic character.” He contributes significantly to American culture. It’s incredible to have participated in and contributed to it.
Conroy made his live-action acting debut in Temstocles López’s 1992 romantic drama “Chain of Desire,” which he also wrote and directed. Additionally, he played a recurrent character on the NBC serial opera “Another World” and made guest appearances on episodes of iconic shows including “Cheers,” “Murphy Brown,” and “Dallas.”
Conroy did voice work for other video games besides Batman. Additionally, he contributed his skills to franchises like “Masters of the Universe” and “Scooby-Doo” (he had a vocal role in the 2019 series “Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?”).
He appeared in episodes of “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe” and “Masters of the Universe: Revelation” on Netflix as Mer-Man in the latter franchise (playing Hordak earlier this year).
