    I forgot about Olan Soule, didn't he do The New Scooby-Doo Movies as well?

    Jeremy Sisto from Justice League: The New Frontier was OK and honestly I liked Diedrich Bader on The Brave & The Bold. There is this great article about all the Batman actors including the early black & whites serials.

    Nostalgia for a generation who grew up on the cartoons? Isn't his run as Batman the longest as well?

    What about Diedrich Bader? I thought he did pretty good.

    I voted for Keaton, thinking this was a live action poll, before I noticed Conroy.

    Greenwood's awesome. Should definitely be on the poll. I still gotta go with Conroy, thought.

    Kevin Conroy for me....except I did not like him voicing Batman in Batman:Gotham Knights..It just did not fit. but other favorites are Bruce Greenwood, Dietrich Bader, Adam West,Peter Weller, Michael Ironside( Legends as DKR Batman in BTAS episode) and Olan Soule.
    I liked Jeremy Sisto in the Justice League: New Frontier for a Golden Age Batman. I like Rino Romano as a voice actor and I liked him as a young Batman in The Batman, but I don't think he fit Batman or an old Batman in The Batman Artifacts episode. Gary Owens was fun in BTAS epidose Legends as the Dick Sprang Batman. I didn't care for Bale's voice as Batman. Keaton, Kilmer, and Clooney were okay, but nothing special. William Baldwin did a pretty good job in Justice League: Crisis on Two Earth's. From the serials from the 1940's I thought Lewis Wilson and Robert Lowery were okay.I thought Benjamin Mackenzie did pretty good in Batman Year One even though most fans think not.

    Clint Eastwood, since most post Adam West Batman actors are doing their best Dirty Harry as the Batman Voice

    Bale or GTFO

    Conroy's Batman sounds like an average Joe wannabe tough guy. I can actually see his voice for Superman though.

    I agree even though I like Conroy the best for voicing Batman. Conroy's Bats voice never sounds forced or pretentious yet sounds perfectly Batman. That's a hard feat to accomplish for most people. Bruce Greenwood is very good as well, probably my second favorite. Weller was perfect for the DKR Batman but probably not fitting for every interpretation.

    Conroy's sounds the most natural, but Greenwood's isn't bad either, and I'd say Bale's voice in begins gets an honorable mention.

    I would have loved for the voice was provided by someone who played Batman in the past. Adam West would have been awesome, a chance to show some range for a change.
    ...And does Mr. Goddanm Batman says so much as ''Thanks''? OF COURSE not. That'd hardly be GRIM AND GRITTY, would it?

    I voted for Conroy because I feel that he captures the essence of who Batman is and how he would express himself to others. He is not right for every interpretation as I see him as the Batman who is at least a few years into the role.

    All this "Why is this a vote" and "if you don't vote Conroy you're wrong" seems a little desperate, to me. Y'all afraid of competition?
