This year is fast becoming the year that ‘all the voices changed’, with recent reports suggesting veteran Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy won’t be returning to add his dulcet tones to Batman: Arkham Origins.
According to a recent interview in the South African gaming mag NAG, Warner Bros would prefer a younger voice actor to bring the inexperienced Dark Knight to life in it’s upcoming prequel.
Kevin Conroy has voiced Gotham’s Caped Crusader for over twenty years and even voiced ol’ Bats as recently as this month’s Injustice: Gods Among Us from NetherRealm Studios.
If the rumours are true, Conroy’s departure will join Michael Ironside (Sam Fisher from Splinter Cell) and David Hayter (Snake from the Metal Gear series) in a list of actors dropped in favour of a younger, fresher direction.
Will you be heartbroken if Conroy doesn’t return? Or does it make sense to have Batman voiced by a new kid on the block? Maybe it’ll be Nolan North…

With less than a week till the cinematic release of The Dark Knight Rises, you can now feed your hunger for all things Batman with the brand new trailer for the official movie tie-in.
Developed by mobile-centric studio Gameloft, The Dark Knight Rises Mobile Game will, unsurprisingly, follow the plot of Christopher Nolan’s much anticipated final Batman movie. The presentation looks like Gameloft are shooting for an Arkham series feel, but the combat looks more like Eurocom’s tepidly received 2005 Batman Begins tie-in.
