During the Dallas Comic-Con, the voice actor let drop he's been working on 'the next Arkham game'. Update: Roger Craig Smith announced as Batman, so what is Conroy working on?
The news going around a month ago that Kevin Conroy was not working on Arkham Originsfrom NAG Magazine looks like it may have been a bit premature. Arkhamverse is now reporting that Conroy mentioned working the last "nine or ten months" on "the next Arkham" game at a panel at the Dallas Comic-Con.
He didn't mention the game by name, but unless there is another Arkham game we don't know about being worked on in addition to Arkham Origins, it seems likely he is returning to the role.
You can watch the entire panel below:
Warner Brothers announced that Roger Craig Smith (voice of Ezis Auditore from Assassin's Creed) will be voicing Batman and Troy Baker will be voicing the Joker. What does this mean for the news that Kevin Conroy is working on "the next Batman game"? Perhaps, since Arkham Origins is a sort of flashback, he'll still be doing voicework for the future Batman before we return to his origin, but maybe he's working on a different character entirely. Personally, it would seem cruel to put the man in a Batman game and not have him voicing the man himself.

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea. Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
