"Batman: Arkham Origins" Won't Feature Kevin Conroy as Batman

Warner Bros. is going for a new talent to fit a younger Caped Crusader

According to a feature in South Africa's NAG magazine, we won't be hearing the iconic voice of Kevin Conroy—who has portrayed Batman and Bruce Wayne in a bunch of games and cartoons since Batman: The Animated Series kicked off in 1992—in the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins


As the article states, "To fit the younger vision of the Caped Crusader, WB Games Montreal decided to go with a new voice talent." 


Despite clarifying plans to not use Conroy, WB Games Montreal didn't say who would be taking on the cape and cowl. Other voices in the game include Tom Kane as Commissioner Gordon, Martin Jarvis as Alfred, and the ubiquitous Nolan North (Uncharted, Assassin's Creed) in a number of roles, including The Penguin/Oswald Cobblepot, Roman Sionis, and Black Mask, the game's chief antagonist.
