Kevin Conroy, best known for voicing the caped crusader in Batman: The Animated Series, has died aged 66.

He died on Thursday after a battle with cancer, series producer Warner Bros announced on Friday.

He was the voice of Batman on the acclaimed animated series that ran from 1992 to 1996, often acting opposite Mark Hamill’s Joker.

Conroy continued on as the almost exclusive animated voice of Batman, including some 15 films, 400 episodes of television shows and two dozen video games, including the Batman: Arkham and Injustice franchises.

In the eight-decade history of Batman, no one played the Dark Knight more.

His inspiration for the contrasting voices, he said, came from the 1930s film, The Scarlet Pimpernel, about an English aristocrat who leads a double life.

“It’s so much fun as an actor to sink your teeth into,” Conroy told The New York Times in 2016.

“Calling it animation doesn’t do it justice. It’s more like mythology.”

“For several generations, he has been the definitive Batman,” Hamill said in a statement.

“It was one of those perfect scenarios where they got the exact right guy for the right part, and the world was better for it.

“He will always be my Batman.”

His other credits included Cheers, Tour of Duty and Murphy Brown.
