In a recent appearance at MCM Comic Con, Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy said that Christain Bale’s take on the character was a little odd.
During the appearance, the sixty-two year old actor was asked about the Nolan version of the Caped Crusader and admitted that the voice sounded a weird:
“It sounded weird! What can I say? It sounded like he had laryngitis. But he does Bruce Way, my god, he nails Bruce Wayne. He’s a terrific actor. Did you see American Psycho? I mean, he’s a wonderful actor. But his voice was weird as Batman.”
This sentiment is one that is shared by many. While most agree that Batman Begins and The Dark Knight are among the greatest comic book films ever made, most would also agree that Christian Bale’s voice in the film was a major weak point. Despite the films’ status, it was the focus of many Batman related jokes and is often cited as a way not to perform an intimidating character. Something that Kevin Conroy would know all about.
Since he first took up the role in Batman: The Animated Series, Kevin Conroy has voiced the role over forty times over the past twenty six years. Despite the many live action versions that have popped up in that time many still consider the Conroy version of the Caped Crusader to be the best. The actor recently provided the voice for the character in the film Batman and Harley Quinn and for last year’s video game, Injustice 2. The actor is currently providing the voice for the Caped Crusader in the Justice League: Action animated series which has aired 52 episodes.
