Kevin Conroy fans are fuming over Batman’s death in a new video game, but the voice behind the Caped Crusader knew the hero’s fate … and gave the role everything he had.
The late actor’s publicist, Gary Miereanu, tells TMZ … Kevin performed his Batman lines in “Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League” with “the same verve with which he approached every Batman role, always being faithful to the words on the page and the direction from the other side of the glass.”
Kevin recorded his lines for the dying Batman before his own passing in 2022 … and some fans feel the video game death is a disrespectful way to leave Conroy’s legacy as the Dark Knight.
But Kevin’s rep doesn’t see it that way … telling us, “I’m also certain that, while recording, Kevin’s own death never entered his mind.”
Another Batman voice actor, Jason O’Mara, tells TMZ … Bruce Wayne’s going to come back in some way, shape, or form in a different story, just like Superman and many other beloved characters.
Jason is sure Kevin knew the script called for Batman to die, and says … “No matter the scenario, he never let any Batman fan down.”
Since the initial fan outrage, it’s been revealed there’s at least one more performance of Kevin as Batman the vault.
Jason says Kevin probably knew this wouldn’t be his last ride as Batman, and fans will have reason to enjoy and celebrate his next performance.
