CBR caught up with Kevin Conroy at Comic-Con last weekend, who was there to promote his upcoming movie Batman and Harley Quinn. Conroy was asked if he keeps up with the other “Batmen”, to which he said he did. The popular Batman voice actor thinks the live-action actors all did a good job, but says Ben Affleck nailed both Batman and Bruce Wayne the best.
“Yeah, I see them,” Conroy said of the Batman movies. “You know, I thought it was weird when Warner Bros. didn’t give the franchise to one actor when they first started doing the films. You just assumed they were going to cast a Batman and he was going to carry the whole franchise. But then when I saw the different ones — Michael Keaton and Val Kilmer, [George Clooney], and Christian Bale — all the different takes, this was really smart, because each actor does it so differently. And I love seeing all the different takes. I think some of them get Bruce Wayne more than they get Batman, and some of them get Batman more than they get Bruce Wayne. I think Ben Affleck has probably gotten the best balance of the two. He’s a really good Bruce Wayne and a really good Batman.”
Do you agree that Ben Affleck is the best Batman and Bruce Wayne we’ve seen in live-action? Let me know in the comments below.
