Kevin Conroythe legendary voice actor known for dubbing Batman and Bruce Wayne in English, has died at the age of 66.

According to a statement released by his representatives, Kevin Monroy has died after a short battle against cancer.

Considered by many to be the best voice actor ever heard playing the Dark Knight, he has worked as Batman in the beloved animated series, but we have also heard him in the original versions of the Batman Arkham saga video games developed by Rocksteady. In the gaming arena, he also voiced the character in NetherRealm Studios’ Injustice saga.

But not only did we get to hear his impressive voice, but his acting talents were also glimpsed in live action when he debuted as Bruce Wayne in the Arrowverse crossover Crisis on Infinite Earths.

Mark Hamillwho accompanied Kevin Conroy for years dubbing Joker in the Batman animated series, has shared some loving words about the actor:

“Kevin was a brilliant actor,” says Mark Hamill. “For generations, he’s been the definitive Batman. It was one of those perfect scenarios where you got the right guy for the right part, and the world was better for it. His rhythms and subtleties, his tones and his delivery , all of that also helped my performance. He was the ideal partner, a complementary and creative experience. I couldn’t have done it without him. He will always be my Batman.”

IGN sends our deepest condolences to his family, friends, and Batman fans around the world.
