NEXT PAGE: Conroy on His Lighter, Zanier Batman in Justice League Action
Of course Conroy’s not new to even zanier takes on the DC property. Speaking of the TV series Justice League Action, he was effusive, exclaiming, “I love that show and I love doing it. It’s so much fun…It’s so funny, but without losing the truthfulness of the characters. I mean, Batman is still Batman. But he’s in these ridiculous situations with these crazy character. I mean Booster Gold?! He’s a crazy character. So it’s so fun to see this serious guy with these absurd situations. I can’t give away things. I don’t know what they have aired and what they haven’t aired. But there are some situations that are so ridiculous, and so funny, and so much fun to play. I love it.”
The round table of reporters was in awe of this living legend of DC animation. But as fun as it was to hear him pontificate on playing the Batman, or weighing in on Batfleck, the highlight came when he was asked about a tried and true voice actor trick.
Some voice actors have a key phrase that helps them lock into the various voices they do, and get into character. Asked if Conroy employs this method, he responded with a familiar rumble that built to a roaring crescendo: “I am vengeance. I am the night. I AM BATMAN!”
At this, the entire table burst into gasps and applause. Because this was Comic-Con, and he is Batman.
Batman and Harley Quinn will be available on August 14th.
