Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League won’t be the final performance from Kevin Conroy as Batman, as previously expected.
As reported by IGN, Conroy will appear in both Bruce Timm’s Batman: Caped Crusader, an upcoming animated series from Amazon, and Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths, Part Three, another animated feature.
The roles, recorded before Conroy’s death in 2022, will bring to an end over three decades of playing the iconic hero across video games and in animation.
Conroy features prominently in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, his final video game appearance as the character. Announced last year with a trailer featuring a message of, “Thank You Kevin,” his performance in the role brings to an end a contribution to video games that includes the much-loved Arkham trilogy.
At the time of his death, DC said it was “deeply saddened at the passing of Kevin Conroy, a legendary actor and the voice of Batman for multiple generations. He will be forever missed by his friends, family, and fans”.
Outside of Batman games, Conroy voiced characters in Crusaders of Might and Magic, Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, and Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne.
VGC’s review of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League called it “a much better game than the marketing would have you believe.”
“It’s enjoyable both alone or with friends, and it’s the best DC story in a game since the last time Rocksteady was in town.”
