Kevin Conroy, best known for his work as the voice of Batman in Batman The Animated Series, has passed away.
News broke this morning as numerous publications reported that multiple sources close to the legendary voice actor confirmed the tragic event. Conroy was 66-years-old.
Conroy passed away yesterday after losing a short battle to cancer, TMZ reports. His representative, Gary Miereanu, divulged these details to the major news outlet.
Fans remember and love Kevin most for his voicing of Batman in Batman: The Animated Series, which he did from 1992 to 1995. Of course, he would go on to voice the dark knight in other media as well, including TV series Batman Beyond, animated film Batman: The Killing Joke, and more.
Here in the fighting game community, we also know that Conroy lent his talents to NetherRealm Studios for 2013’s Injustice: Gods Among Us and 2017’s Injustice 2. Naturally, he provided the voice for the caped crusader in both of these major fighting games.
Most recently, Conroy also voiced Batman in Warner Bros. and Player 1st Games’ platform fighter, MultiVersus. The latter company’s official Twitter account put out a message to fans and Kevin thanking him for his time spent on the title.
“The performances you delivered were once in a lifetime,” the tweet began. “From Batman television shows all the way to the games, your talent was inspirational. Thank you for bringing to life one of the greatest characters of all time and all that you have done. Rest in peace Kevin Conroy🕊️❤️”
