    I hear Conroy's voice when I read but I remember Dick saying something like his voice is a bad attempt at Clint Eastwood (so I guess that's a hint at Bale).

    I also hear Conroy's voice when I read Batman. I hear Efrem Zimballist Jr. when I read Alfred and Laren Lester when I read Dick Grayson. I guess that TAS left quite the impression on me lol.

    Ugh, nothing that is said nor seen from All Star Batman & Robin should be taken with a grain of salt. Frank Miller is an idiot.

    Batman sounds like Kevin Conroy, or at least that's what I imagine.

    I always hear Conroy when I'm reading Batman or when Batman speaks in Justice League as well. Conroy's pretty much defined how I imagine Batman to speak though.

    @Deranged Midget: You shouldn't speak like that for the man that re-invented Batman. Anyway, I agree with you on the Conroy voice thing.

    Batman will always sound like Kevin Conroy for me, he is the definitive Batman voice actor. I'd actually say that he's got the best voice for the character of all the actors to portray the character (both voice actors and actors who portrayed the character physically as well).

    Exact same as the animated series for Batman, Alfred, Gordon, and Joker. Dick Grayson has my voice. Jason Todd has Jensen Ackle's voice from Under the Red Hood. Catwoman has a composite of Arkham City and the animated series. I make up voices for Damian (a raspy young Aang), Talia (Selma Heyek doing a Mid-Eastern impression), and Tim (more Young Justice than animated series). Action Comics Superman has Nolan North's voice, same with Superboy, and modern day has a composite of North and Tim Daly.

    This is entertaining I never thought about this really!

    I hear Bruce Greenwood's Batman voice from Under the Red Hood. For Joker I hear Mark Hamill. For Harley I hear Arleen Sorkin. Dick Garyson & Tim Drake-Lorin Lester. For Superman though I hear George Newbern but for Action Comics Supes it's Nolan North.

    Never really thought about this before for some strange reason, It depends on the art style for example in the recent issues of Batwing I didn't really get a Bale or Conroy vibe.

    Conroy as Bats and Hamill as Joker.

    Though every once and a while when Bats is doing an interrogation or something of the sorts I hear Bale's growl.

    While Conroy is the voice I hear when I read, that is not how it is described in text is a Clint Eastwood like impression that produced a gravelly voice so I'd imagine it would be something similar to conroy but with more of a growl (which is also described in the comics)

    When I read a Batman comic, I always hear Kevin Conroy's voice speaking as Batman since that's the interpretation of Batman I've always grown up with.

    I hear an unearthly voice produced by voice changing technology. It makes sense to me that Batman, as part of his intimidating persona, would utilize misdirection (voice throwing) and theatrics (voice changing) to frighten and disorientate his prey.

    Batman has always been Kevin Conroy in my head, unless he is interrogating someone in which case it is a version of Bale's growl. Alfred, Dick, Joker and Harley always sound like their TAS counterparts in my head. I though Jensen Ackles was perfect for Red Hood. I always give Tim my voice though, since there has never been a really definitive version for him.
