Kevin Conroy, who provided the voice of Batman in just about every animated series to feature the character in recent years, will now be continuing with the role in Batman: Gotham Knight.
There’s been significant speculation about who will voice the Dark Knight in the upcoming direct-to-video anthology created by some of the most notable names in the worlds of comics and anime. It was originally rumored that Batman Begins‘ Christian Bale would reprise the role — due mainly to the actor’s presence on the IMDB site for the project. Bale’s name has now been removed from IMDB’s cast listing.
There’s been no word on how many of the stories featured in the anthology will use Conroy as Batman’s voice. Conroy’s past Batman credits include Batman; The Animated Series, the voice of Bruce Wayne in Batman Beyond, Justice League Unlimited and many of the feature-length projects related to each series.
Batman: Gotham Knight is scheduled to hit shelves July 8.
