Kevin Conroy Reacts To Robert Pattinson's "I'm Vengeance" Line In "The Batman" Trailer


The long-awaited trailer for Matt Reeves' The Batman featured a line that was made famous by legendary Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy.

One scene in the trailer shows Robert Pattinson's Batman confronting a group of criminals. When one of them asks what he's "supposed to be," Batman fights him off and says "I'm vengeance."

This line was first uttered in the "Nothing To Fear" episode for Batman: The Animated Series, in which Conroy starred as the Batman/Bruce Wayne voice actor.

Near the end of the episode, Batman attempts to stop the Scarecrow. But he begins to hallucinate and hears voices of his late father, Thomas Wayne, calling him "a disgrace."

Fighting off the fears and hallucination, Batman utters "I am not a disgrace. I am vengeance. I am the night. I am Batman!"

Batman is able to shrug off the fears and manages to defeat Scarecrow.

So, what does Conroy think of Pattinson using that iconic line that he made famous nearly 30 years ago? He shared his thoughts in an interview on Geek House Show (h/t Comic Book).

"I don't own those lines, you know what I mean? I have to put my ego aside and I have to accept the fact that there are a lot of actors who are just as good at playing Batman as I am," Conroy said. "I think it was kind of brilliant of Warner Brothers to not give the role to one person. I thought it was crazy at first because usually they give a role to one actor and that actor becomes the face of the franchise.

"So when Michael Keaton started and I thought well he's going to be Batman. Then you got, George Clooney, Val Kilmer, all these different actors, Ben Affleck, who all did it slightly different. They all had a different strength in playing the role."

More than two decades later, Conroy would have an opportunity to utter that famous line once again.

Scarecrow captures Batman (voiced by Conroy) near the end of the Batman: Arkham Knight videogame. He injects his fear toxin in Batman, who has to fight off hallucinations of the Joker.

Batman catches Joker and utters "I am vengeance. I am the night. I am Batman," before locking him away for good." With the help of Jason Todd and the Gotham Police Department, he defeats Scarecrow and has him locked up him up in Arkham Asylum.

The Batman was previously scheduled for a June 2021 release, but it was pushed to October 2021 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The film has now been delayed even further, and it's scheduled for a spring 2022 release.
