Every animated character has a voice actor behind it, giving it life. Actor Kevin Conroy has been associated with the Batman character since he voiced him over the course of 86 episodes on Batman: The Animated Series (1992-1995), and through many spin-off series’ and feature films that have followed like The New Batman Adventures (1997-1999, 24 episodes), Batman Beyond (1999-2001, 48 episodes), Justice League (2001-2006, 55 episodes) and the video games Batman: Arkham Asylum (2009) and Batman: Arkham City (2011). Warner Bros. has continued using Conroy as Batman’s (and Bruce Wayne’s) voice in direct-to-video feature films over the years, and in the new film Batman: Assault on Arkham, Conroy once again lends his distinctive baritone to give the Caped Crusader that familiar voice fans have comfortably accepted and embraced.

Bob Hastings, who voiced Commissioner Gordon on Batman: The Animated Series, as well as Clark Kent and Superboy in The Superman/Batman Hour and Superboy in the 1960's, has passed away. According to The Burbank Leader, Hastings died of pancreatic cancer, which he had been battling for the last 15 years. People like Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill get a lot of credit for voicing Batman and the Joker, respectively, but Hastings put his own iconic stamp on the character of Commissioner Gordon, which undoubtedly influenced the live action versions we've seen in various Batman films. Hastings lent his voice to a variety of voicework for decades. His credits include Batman: The Mystery of the Batwoman, Batman: The Rise of Sin Tzu videogame, Static Shock, Gotham Girls, Jak and Daxter, The New Batman Adventures, Superman, Batman: The Animated Series, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, Challenge of the SuperFriends, The Munsters, »

“We are heartbroken to announce the passing into peace of our beloved father, Efrem Zimbalist Jr., today at his Solvang, Calif. ranch. A devout Christian, he actively enjoyed his life to the last day, showering love on his extended family, playing golf, and visiting with close friends.”
Tall, handsome and always well dressed, Zimbalist starred as the smooth former Oss officer-turned private eye Stuart Bailey who ran a Los Angeles detective agency in “77 Sunset Strip.” The show, one of the first TV series hits from the Warner Bros. studio, ran on ABC from 1958-64.

With Batman‘s 75th Anniversary upon us, it’s only natural for the spotlight to linger on the DC comic books that have defined the caped crusader and his rogue’s gallery, as well as the cinematic adaptations that have both pushed comic book movies forward (Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman and the Nolan trilogy) and moved them back (Batman and Robin). But while it doesn’t get the same attention, the character’s animated legacy is equally impressive and still growing.
Launched in 1999, Batman Beyond followed the legendary Batman: The Animated Series and The New Batman Adventures to the small screen, pushing the story out to the year 2039 and a time long after Bruce Wayne’s health had betrayed him, thus making ...
