It is with a heavy heart that I have to share this unfortunate news, the Iconic Voice Actor Kevin Conroy has passed away at the age of 66 after a short battle with Cancer.
Kevin Conroy was best known for his iconic role as Batman in Warner Brothers’ long-running animated television series, Batman: The Animated Series, which ran from 1992 to 1995 for 85 episodes.
