Kevin Conroy has had a great career.
After graduating from Staples High School in 1973, he earned a full scholarship to Juilliard’s drama division. He studied under John Houseman, and shared classes with Christopher Reeve.
Conroy toured nationally with “Deathtrap,” appeared on the soap opera “Another World,” played Laertes in the New York Shakespeare Festival, acted on Broadway, and was a regular on “Ohara” and “Tour of Duty.”
But the former Staples Player is best known as Batman.
For over 20 years, Conroy has lent his “deeply charming, yet virile voice” to 9 TV series, 12 animated movies and 7 video games. No other actor has played Batman for so long, or been as closely identified with him.
So who better to weigh in on the great “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” debate than Conroy himself?
Naturally, he takes the side of the superhero many fans call “ordinary.”
Holy non-surprise, Batman!
In fact, Conroy calls Batman “extraordinary.” He explains:
He’s always had to rely on his wits. He’s always had to think his way out of things. He’s had to create devices, create machines, and he thinks on so many different levels….He can create his way out of things. And that’s power.
But don’t just read about it. Listen to Kevin Conroy talk about Batman — using (for once) his own voice.
