RIP Kevin Conroy: The Enduring Legacy of a Legendary Batman Voice Actor
Fans have not seen the last of Kevin Conroy as Batman, as the actor is set to reprise his DC hero at least one more time after the controversial Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. Conroy first played Bruce Wayne in 1992’s Batman: The Animated Series, then starred in several Batman animated shows, movies, video games, and even played a Kingdom Come-like Batman in live-action for the Arrowverse’s Crisis on Infinite Earths. Following Conroy‘s passing last year, it was thought that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League would be his final time as Batman; however, that is not the case.

Viral Outrage: Fans React to Batman’s Controversial Death in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League
There’s a new video game where Batman gets a final sayonara from his worst foes — and fans of the late Kevin Conroy are absolutely fuming over it … calling it a terrible send-off.
The game’s called ‘Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League‘ — due out in a few days — and some of the footage from a particular scene involving the Dark Knight (voiced by Conroy) is already making the rounds online … which depicts this version of Batman‘s brutal death.
Indeed, in this universe … Harley Quinn fires a bullet into Batman at close range, officially killing him off — and people who grew up watching Conroy‘s Batman are kinda losing it.
Respecting Kevin Conroy’s Legacy: Understanding His Role in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League
However, others are actually pushing back against the outrage … for two good reasons. One … it’s a freaking video game/fictional character — and all this is pretty damn silly, TBH.
More importantly, though, many are rightly pointing out that Conroy himself signed up for this story when taking the job — and considering how closely he cherished the role/character of Batman for as long as he did it … some think the angry mob should respect his decision.
Some believe ‘SSKTJL‘ tarnishes Batman/Kevin‘s footprint … but his contribution goes well beyond just this moment. Try telling that to the nostalgic right now — they don’t seem to wanna hear it.
