1 September 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

John Dimaggio has the kind of résumé that would leave most voice actors envious. He’s best known for his voice work on Futurama as Bender, but he also lends his talents to Adventure Time, American Dad!, and Samurai Jack. But, as we all do, he had to start somewhere.

Exclusive: Kevin Conroy explains why Batman: Mask of the Phantasm is the best Batman movie

29 August 2017 10:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week Flickering Myth’s Amon Warmann was lucky enough to chat with legendary Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy about the latest instalment in the DC Universe Animated Original Movies line Batman and Harley Quinn. During the discussion, they also spoke about their favourite Batman movie – 1993’s Batman: Mask of the Phantasm.

Amon Warmann: My favourite Batman movie – animated or otherwise – is Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. What are your memories of working on that?

Kevin Conroy: I agree with you – I think that is the best Batman movie, live action or animated. You get the whole genesis of the Batman story in that one film. And then you’ve got the drama, falling in love with Andrea Beaumont, wanting to have a normal life, pleading with his parents grave to release him from the vow and then realising he’s doomed to avenge their deaths. He’s trapped in his fate. »

Exclusive: Kevin Conroy on the Batman stories he’d like to see adapted as animated movies

29 August 2017 8:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kevin Conroy has been lending his voice to the Dark Knight for 25 years now, appearing in everything from Batman: The Animated Series to the acclaimed Arkham video games and a host of animated features, including last year’s Batman: The Killing Joke and this month’s Batman and Harley Quinn, which reunites him with Batman: Tas co-creator Bruce Timm.

Flickering Myth’s Amon Warmann was lucky enough to speak to Kevin this past week to discuss Batman and Harley Quinn, during which he revealed that there are still several iconic Batman stories he’d like to tick off his bucket list.

You’ve been voicing the character for so long and we’ve seen him in so many different situations. Is there anything you still want to explore with the character?

There’s stories I still want to do. Hush would be cool. Death in the Family would be cool. »

Kevin Conroy says Ben Affleck is the best Batman

27 July 2017 1:05 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Voice actor Kevin Conroy is considered by many to be the definitive Dark Knight through his work on Batman: The Animated Series and numerous DC animated series and movies. But who does he consider to be the best Batman? Well, in an interview with Comic Book Resources to promote the new animated feature Batman and Harley Quinn, Conroy shared his thoughts on the various live action incarnations of the Caped Crusader.

“Are there other Batmen that I don’t do? I haven’t heard of one,” joked Conroy. “Yeah, I see them. You know, I thought it was weird when Warner Bros. didn’t give the franchise to one actor when the first started doing the films. You just assumed they were going to cast a Batman and he was going to carry the whole franchise. But then when I saw the different ones — Michael Keaton and Val Kilmer, George Clooney, »
