Holy Zur-En-Arrh! – Kevin Conroy voicing a Batman in The Brave and the Bold

Posted by LiveFor on March 29, 2010

Clip from new episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold featuring the Batman from Zurr En Arrh, voiced by none other than Kevin Conroy – he is the true voice of Batman from The Animated Series and the Arkham Asylum video game. Will be nice to see him back for a little while.

The episode also features the Metal Men.

Batman talks about Bale’s Batman voice

Posted by LiveFor on September 1, 2009

batmanKevin Conroy is the voice of Batman for many people. If you enjoy Batman: The Animated Series then you know what I am talking about. He is cool as Bruce Wayne (I still think Billy Zane should have been a live action Batman), but as Bats he excels with the self assured, menacing voice. The clip below shows what I am talking about.

As you may well know, Conroy recently got back in the cowl to voice Batman in Batman: Arkham Asylum – an excellent video game that I am currently playing. The plot is written by Paul Dini and Mark Hamill is also back to voice the Joker, so it is very much the gang’s all here for the game.

Conroy recently spoke to Wired about the game and he had some interesing words on Hamill and Heath Ledger’s version of the Joker, but even better he had something to say about Christian Bale’s Batman growl in The Dark Knight.

“Mark is incredible as always,” Conroy said. “There’s no one I’d rather have voicing The Joker.”

“I think Mark created the definitive ‘crazy’ Joker. There’s no question Heath Ledger gave an unbelievable performance in The Dark Knight as a scheming, anarchist Joker. But Mark perfected that fun, insane character.”

“Reuniting the cast and so many people from the animated series made Arkham Asylum such a great experience,” Conroy added. “After working with (the animated series crew) for so many years, you develop a shorthand that allows everything to work really smoothly.”

What did he think of Bale’s voice in The Dark Knight.

“I thought Christian was excellent as Bruce Wayne, but I didn’t understand his choices there. I thought it was over the top and distracted from his scenes as Batman. I’m not sure what they were going for there. But, what do I know?”

When Christian Bale was asked what he thought about Kevin Conroy’s comments he had this to say:
GoddamnBatman
Not really, that’s just the work of Frank Miller and Jim Lee in All Star Batman and Robin.

Good news for Batman fans as Kevin Conroy is also voicing him in the forthcoming Superman / Batman: Public Enemies DVD that is out on 29th September.
