The news that Kevin Conroy would not be voicing Batman in the upcoming Arkham Origins seemed to come out of nowhere, and — though it couldn’t be verified — was still enough to upset many fans. But never fear! Kevin Conroy will be returning in Arkham Origins — although whether or not he’ll be actually voicing Batman remains unconfirmed.
At the recent Dallas Comic-Con, Conroy revealed that “I can talk about it now. We’ve been working for about 9 or 10 months on the next Arkham.”
“We were all signing these contracts that we weren’t allowed to talk about it – you know the studio likes to completely control the roll out of any product, so they don’t like any of us to talk about anything.”
Although this being widely reported as confirmation, Conroy actually stops short of saying “I will be voicing Batman”. It’s hard to imagine what else he’d be doing, but considering this is a prequel, there’s every possibility he may be perhaps providing a voiceover from the perspective of an older Batman, along with a newer actor. Stay tuned!
