Keaton or Bale? When people argue who the best Batman is it always comes down to these two. However real Bat fans know neither answer is correct. When it comes to who the best Batman is, there’s really only one choice, Kevin Conroy.

The man who voiced the Caped Crusader throughout the 90’s and early 2000’s under Bruce Timm’s different incarnations of the DC Animated Universe is set to make his return to the iconic role in a new upcoming Justice League cartoon.

Justice League Action, the title for the new show, appears to be geared towards a younger demographic than previous JL cartoons.

JLA will most likely look to hit the 2-11 year old group and will focus on lightning fast action from start to finish: “Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman lead the DC Comics Super Heroes against their most infamous foes in adventures packed with relentless thrills, fun and action… No need to wait for the good stuff to start, each eleven-minute episode jumps in with lightning-paced action and heroics. Whether defending the Earth, facing invaders from space, or battling the bizarre forces of magic, the always-rotating team of Justice League heroes, are up to any challenge.”, read an announcement from Cartoon Network.

Not only will Conroy return, but his Mark Hamill will return as well, noted for his equally iconic turn as the Joker in Batman: The Animated Series. Other additions to the show will be James Woods as Lex Luthor and Diedrich Bader, who played Batman on the Brave and the Bold, as Booster Gold. No word yet on when the show premieres.
