Kevin Conroy, The Man Behind the Voice

Kevin Conroy has a history of playing Batman for eight decades. His most recent project was Justice League vs. the Fatal five. When the show producers first encountered his voice, they were sure he would be the apt choice for this role. Prior to selecting him, they auditioned more than 500 people, and none of them could really capture the essence of Batman as well as Conroy.

He became a part of the DC Animated universe and voice acted for more than twenty Batman-related spinoffs. What made him so fit for the role was his ability to shift his voice from Bruce to Batman. While Bruce was calm and charming, Batman was deep and rough. Like day and night, he could switch the voice and adopt a sound that is suitable for their personalities.
