Kevin Conroy, who famously voiced Batman/Bruce Wayne on Batman: The Animated Series, is urging everyone to wear masks in order to protect themselves and others from the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
On Twitter, Conroy shared an image of himself sporting a mask while taking a walk outside, “If a mask is good enough for Batman, a mask is good enough for me. Kind of sexy too!” he wrote. “Wear the mask, protect yourself and your neighbors. Please.” Conroy also listed the confirmed COVID-19 cases in the United States from month to month, which were at 558 in March, before jumping to over 400,000 in April and now over 1 million as of May 8.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have strongly recommended that masks be worn when out in public. Other recommendations for halting the spread of COVID-19 include social distancing, frequent hand washing, covering any sneezes or coughs and only leaving home when necessary.
Originally released in 1992, Batman: The Animated Series was created by Bruce Timm, Paul Dini and Mitch Brian. The series ran on the Fox Kids network until 1995 for a total of 85 episodes. Batman: The Animated Series was well-received and even won a number of awards, including a Primetime Emmy Award and a Daytime Emmy Award.
In addition to voicing Batman, Conroy has voiced characters in a number of different series, including The Real Adventures of Johnny Quest and The Venture Bros. He also recently portrayed a live-action version of Bruce Wayne on The CW’s Batwoman series.
