Voice actor Kevin Conroy gave an interview to Valnet Inc. Presents Comic Book Resources during San Diego Comic Con, where he weighed in on his favorite live-action Batman, mistakenly naming Ben Affleck at the top, as he forgot to mention the late and greatest Batman actor Adam West.

"You know, I thought it was weird when Warner Bros. didn't give the franchise to one actor when the first started doing the films. You just assumed they were going to cast a Batman and he was going to carry the whole franchise. But then when I saw the different ones — Michael Keaton and Val Kilmer, [George Clooney], and Christian Bale — all the different takes, this was really smart, because each actor does it so differently. And I love seeing all the different takes. I think some of them get Bruce Wayne more than they get Batman, and some of them get Batman more than they get Bruce Wayne. I think Ben Affleck has probably gotten the best balance of the two. He's a really good Bruce Wayne and a really good Batman."

Conroy has voiced animated versions of Batman for the past 25 years. Most recently, he can heard in Batman and Harley Quinn, which will play one-night-only in theaters, on August 14.
