And all I’m really excited to talk about is that it’s Kevin Conroy’s Birthday today! If you have to ask who Kevin Conroy is, you’re dead to me!
No,no it’s understandable if you don’t. Only children of the 80’s/90’s would really know who he is. For over 20 years he’s been the iconic voice of Animated Batman, ranging from the WB cartoon series to the Arkham Video games to some commentary on Tim Burton bat films DVD/Blue Ray specials. Almost anyone in my generation will know him without actually knowing who he is….unless you’re a die hard fan like me.
Kevin Conroy was the first actor to give Batman and Bruce Wayne two distinctive voices back in the 90’s and the first to give that low signature growl. He and Luke Skywalker, I mean Mark Hamill, are a big reason the Batman and Joker relationship are fan favorites to watch and play.
So if you’re not too busy trying to grab the best deals on CyberMonday 90’s fanboys and girls, give a shout out to one of our childhood heroes who’s still and most likely always will be “The vengeance, the night, the BATMAN”!
