Could the longest-tenured Batman actually remove the DC cowl and go over to Marvel? Kevin Conroy seems to think there is always a chance.
ComicBook.com spoke with the voice behind the Caped Crusader for the last 25 years and asked him if he would ever consider playing a superhero from another company. He said:
“Of course! I’m an actor. Actors want challenges, they want to be stretched.”
The veteran voice actor is also currently working on a new secret project, in which he voices a villain. Conroy teased:
“I have a new character that I’m introducing. I’m not allowed to mention what it’s on, but it’s on a different show.”
After voicing Gotham’s greatest hero for so long, Conroy also talked a little bit about what it is like voicing someone who fights for the other side:
“This new character I’m doing is actually a villain. And it’s a fun, crazy villain. It’s on another show, so I’m not allowed to tell you who it is. But it’s a fun character. I love doing it.”
What do you think, could Conroy take on the challenge of voicing one of Marvel’s finest? And can you hear the voice of Batman voicing an evil villain? Sound off in the comments below!
The Top 25 ‘Batman: The Animated Series’ Episodes
If you’re looking for one of the (if not the) greatest animated shows of all-time, look no further than Batman: The Animated Series. The show that began the DC Animated Universe (DCAU) premiered in 1992 and spawned over a hundred episodes, plus Superman and Justice League series, among others. It gave Batman and Joker voices of a generation in Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill. In my estimation, it easily surpasses the films as second only to the comics in the Batman legend.
After a holiday re-watch, I ranked the 25 best episodes from both iterations of the series, which ran from 1992 t0 1994 and from 1997 to 1999, respectively. A * denotes an episode that is part of The New Batman Adventures, which were produced three years after The Animated Series concluded.
Honorable Mentions: “Second Chance,” “P.O.V.,” “Mad as a Hatter,” “Heart of Steel two-parter” & “His Silicon Soul”, “Birds of a Feather,” “Mudslide,” “Eternal Youth,” “Dreams in Darkness”
