New Batman Game Will Not Feature Kevin Conroy

Rob Leane Oct 7, 2019

According to the man himself, Kevin Conroy has not been recruited for WB Montreal's new Batman game

For many, Kevin Conroy is the definitive voice of Batman and Bruce Wayne, with his performances in Batman: The Animated Series and Rocksteady's Batman Arkham games earning him legions of adoring fans. However, it sounds like WB Montreal has not recruited the actor to reprise his role in the studio's upcoming Batman game.

Little is known about this upcoming project, but WB Montreal did share a mysterious teaser on Batman Day that seemed to confirm the company is working on something Bat-related. Gamers who have been following this studio for years will know that this isn't the first time WB Montreal has made a Bat-game without Conroy.

The team from Montreal previously made Batman: Arkham Origins, a prequel to Rocksteady's series. Conroy, who voiced Bats and Bruce in all of Rocksteady's Batman Arkham games,

Kevin Conroy Won’t Voice Batman In The Next Video Game

It’s probably safe to say that most modern readers of Batman comics have heard one man’s voice in their head when sitting down to enjoy the Caped Crusader’s adventures on the printed page – and that’s Kevin Conroy’s. Ever since blowing us all away with his character-defining performances on Batman: The Animated Series, he eventually returned for other shows like Batman Beyond and Justice League Unlimited, not to mention a slew of video games such as Batman: Arkham Asylum and its sequels.

Now, with yet another interactive experience starring the Dark Knight on the way, fans far and wide are understandably wondering if Conroy will once again lend his pipes to the timeless icon. And before we get to what he had to say regarding the matter, you should know that the project is in the hands of Arkham Origins developer WB Games Montreal, and that

Here’s Your First Look At Batman In Superman: Red Son Animated Movie

Now that Batman: Gotham by Gaslight has opened the door for various other Elseworlds tales to be adapted as animated films, Superman: Red Son will be the first to follow in its footsteps. To be quite honest, this doesn’t come as much of a surprise because the limited series written by Mark Millar and illustrated by Dave Johnson has long remained one of the most popular in the line, not to mention DC fans demanding this become a reality for years.

To briefly sum up what that story entailed for those unfamiliar, what you need to know going into your first viewing of the animated flick is that it explored that possibility of baby Kal-El’s rocket landing in Soviet Russia instead of in Smallville, Kansas. As you can imagine, the Comrade of Steel had a very different upbringing than the hero we’ve come to know otherwise.

"Superman: Red Son"

"Superman: Red Son", a new animated full-length feature available in 2020, is part of the 'DC Universe Animated Original Movies' line, based on writer Mark Millar's 3-issue DC Comics minseries, set in an 'alternate reality' circa 1953-2001, that sees the baby 'Krypton' alien 'Kal-El', the future 'Superman', crashland in the 'Soviet Union', instead of Kansas, USA:

"...instead of landing in Kansas as a child, I've decided to explore what could have happened if his rocket would have landed on a collective farm in the 'Soviet Union'," said Millar.

"Instead of working for the 'Daily Planet', he'll be a reporter for 'Pravda'. There's a reversal of the current situation, this time it's the Us that's splitting up, with Georgia and Louisiana demanding independence — tanks rolling through the streets of New Orleans..."

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation has announced five new DC Showcase animated shorts will roll out between 2019 and 2020 in Sgt. Rock, Adam Strange, Death, The Phantom Stranger and Batman: Death in the Family.

Sgt. Rock is executive produced and directed by Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series) from a script by award-winning comics writers Louise Simonson & Walter Simonson and Tim Sheridan (Reign of the Supermen).

Superman: Red Son Animated Movie Confirmed, Cast Revealed

DC Animation’s reportedly working on an adaptation of Mark Millar’s Superman: Red Son, according to Revenge of the Fans. Given that the company’s been thorough in their quest to adapt the most highly regarded comics in their back catalogue, this doesn’t come as a huge surprise, but it is a welcome one.

Red Son hit store shelves in 2003 as part of the Elseworlds range and wonders how the DC Universe might’ve developed if Kal-El’s rocket had crashed into the Soviet Union rather than the United States. It’s a neat concept showing how the man who stands for Truth, Justice and the American Way can also just as easily become the embodiment of the Stakhanovite Soviet worker.

Upon the death of Stalin (whose name literally means ‘Man of Steel’), Superman assumes command of the Communist Party and goes on to transform the Soviet Union

It’s amazing but not too surprising that when reading a bio on a guy like Roger Craig Smith, or any other voice actor, that their information is somewhat less than you might expect. But then again a lot of them seem to have a fairly simple existence outside of their on screen personas and tend to not be given as much back story as regular actors. Roger however started his career as a standup comedian and is also a screenwriter, so it’s not accurate to say that he’s Just a voice actor. Since the late 80s hes been giving his
