Twitter Is Flooded W/ Netizens Tributes To Kevin Conroy’s Legacy

Conroy died after a brief fight with cancer, and friends and fans responded with heartfelt tributes and sorrow.

Kevin Conroy's legacy as the definitive voice of Batman was celebrated on social media following news of his death on Nov. 10.

Numerous people were quick to express their sorrow upon hearing of Conroy’s demise, whether they were colleagues on some of the games for which he gave a voice or fans who grew up with his portrayal of Batman.

Here are some further condolences that have been expressed in the hours since it was revealed that he had passed away.

John Glover shared, “So many great memories on stage with #KevinConroy at San Diego Globe and on George Washington / Kennedy miniseries before seeing his brilliance as #batman and playing #riddler. It has been the greatest privilege reconnecting with him and having dinner with him in recent years.”

Jim Lee shared an incredible photo captioned, “Shocked & saddened to hear of the passing of the legendary @RealKevinConroy whose take on Bruce Wayne and Batman set impossibly high standards for those who followed. I spent some time with Kevin at various Batman celebrations over the years.

“And I was struck by his amazing talent and unending kindness. He was so thankful and welcoming to all his fans and thoughtful in every interaction. I was always thrilled that he also got to play Bruce Wayne IRL on the Crisis on Infinite Crossover on the CW. A true prince of a man.”

Regarding his collaboration and friendship with Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill was cited. “He was the ideal partner – it was such a complementary, creative experience. I couldn’t have done it without him. He will always be my Batman.”

“Your Batman and Naruto are the two fictional characters that have really carved and shaped out my personality and the way I think into an inspired but always brooding youth. There will never be a better Batman for me. Thank you, Kevin Conroy,” another fan shared. 

Kevin Smith stated, “I lost a hero today. We all did. The one true Batman – the voice I’ll always hear in my head whenever I read or write a Batman comic book – has passed. I’ll miss you forever, @RealKevinConroy. Thanks for defining the Dark Knight with your powerful pipes and for being a friend.”

One user stated, “More important than the voice of Batman everyone hears in their head, Kevin Conroy was a trailblazer for the queer voice-acting community. He was a giant—what a gift and what a loss.”

Eric Italiano shared, “Kevin Conroy passing away is devastating. His iteration of Batman is the first character I ever loved and set me on the life path I’m currently on. When discussing the all-time pantheon Batman actors, his name will forever deserve to be mentioned near the top. Rest In Peace.”

“His Batman was a part of my family,” someone finally stated. His talent and concern helped me get through the roughest of circumstances. Thank you, Kevin, for saving lives and demonstrating that we can convert tragedy into hope. R.I.P.”

Thank you for paying tribute to the legendary Kevin Conroy. And also our love and thoughts are with the families.
