You read that correctly. Christian Bale will not be providing the voice of Bruce Wayne/Batman in the direct-to-DVD Batman: Gotham Knight.*

So who will, you ask?

Kevin Conroy, who voiced the Dark Knight in the awesome Batman: The Animated Series, will be returning to the role for this project…at least in part.

If you don’t know, Batman: Gotham Knight is being planned as a bridge between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, much like The Animatrix bridged The Matrix and The Matrix Reloaded. Also it’s being planned as a series of short featurettes telling different stories of Batman’s adventures between the two films.

It’s unclear at this point if Conroy will be voicing Batman for all of them, or just one of them, but as a BIG fan of Batman: TAS, I’m very excited to hear about his involvement in this project!

*At least, we have no confirmation at this time that Bale is connected to this project.
