“He’ll never fully know how much he inspired me”: Kevin Conroy Gets Heartfelt Eulogy From Legendary Voice Artist Troy Baker as ‘Definitive’ Batman and Gay Icon Passed Away at 66

Kevin Conroy batman animated series

Kevin Conroy was an inspiring idol for many across the world. He was Vengeance, he was the Night, and he’ll always be Batman! His work as the Caped Crusader will remain eternally iconic as there was nobody who could match the bravado and awesomeness of his portrayal. And that’s why his demise felt really tragic to all hardcore Dark Knight fans across the world. Even the legendary voice artist Troy Baker paid tribute to the late voice artist.

Troy Baker’s Eulogy

Baker himself is a bona fide star in the field as he is famously known for lending his voice in The Last of Us as Joel Miller, and many other roles in games and animation. But he has always been very appreciative and respectful towards his old friend, Kevin Conroy. And even the late actor always showed his respect toward Baker.

Now after Conroy’s passing, Baker has paid his tribute to the Batman star by thanking him. Here’s what he wrote:

His was the best.
He will always be the best.
He was my Batman.
He was my friend.

He’ll never fully know how much he inspired me but I’m sure glad I told him every chance I got.

Thank you, Kevin.

To sleep, to sleep, perchance to dream…

Good to see such a nice and warm eulogy. Many Batmen may come and go, but none of them would remain as iconic as Conroy and that is a fact!

The list of projects where Kevin Conroy played Batman is pretty long and extensive. Starting with Batman the Animated Series, he continued to play portray the role in dozens of other projects that ranged from animated shows to video games, and even live-action. The CW’s Arrowverse did a remarkable job bringing Conroy’s Bruce Wayne to life in a multiversal setup. And now in the upcoming Batman: Caped Crusader TV series, Conroy is actually voicing Bruce’s father Thomas Wayne. That is the last time we’ll be hearing his voice in the DC space.
