Does Batman really change his voice?

#1 Posted by connect200 (28 posts) - - Show Bio

I have watch Batman from TV (animated series), and movies. All this time, I wondered how Batman's voice really sounds like. Let for one second, forget all the actor and voice actors who portrayed Batman/Bruce Wayne and really think. Does Batman's voice 100% differ from the voice? I ask this because when Dick Grayson was Batman he even mention how he alters his voice.

So I want all you people to answer is do you think Batman has a different voice from Bruce Wayne, or does he use his regular voice while everybody else is just too stiupid to make the connect; remember those are the same people who cant' recognize Clark Kent as Superman.

He would be a fool to not change it and intellect is one of Batman's greatest weapons so He would definitely alter it. Anything else would simply be poor writing ala the Clark Kent/superman situation that you mentioned.

Yes. It's been mentioned multiple times in comics that he changes his voice. I'm afraid I can't point out specific issues, but it really has been focused on at times.

I believe when Tim changed to his Red Robin ID it was also mentioned that he was working on a new voice.

Yeah I remember Dick saying to someone when he was Batman "I sure sound like him (referring to Batman)". So yeah I can kind of see Batman changing his voice. I heard it was kind of mentioned in Knightfall.

It makes sense for him to change his voice. It's a better disguise than a pair of glasses.

Bruce Wayne is on Tv 365 days.

He need to change his voice as Batman.

it is said in the comics that he has a growl in his voice, and he would practice it before he would go out on patrol

My guess is Batman is using a Darth Vader voice changer that is built into his dentures.

Most heroes change their voice but you can't show that in a comic book

either that or they just don't feel like doing it

nobody can change 100% of his voice

Alfred once mentioned that, "Master Bruce - that growl you used to practice when you started as Batman. You're doing it all the time now."

I don't know - could be a reference to him altering his voice to a more intimidating register.

O course probably not the way Bale does it but ya.

You know that Bale never made that voice in the movies, was Nolan in posproduction, Bale keep using his Begins during the 3 films.

Nolan didnt like that voice and change it, he did the same with Tom Hardy for some reason.

He liked Star Wars so much he try to make them sound as Darth Vader as much as he could.

Yes!!!!!!! : )

It could be that Bruce uses one accent and Batman another.

My mexican spanish accent voice sound more manly that my spanish spanish accent voice.

My American English voice sound more girly that my english english voice, my most manly voice.

He could be usig anothe accent to sound in another way.

Also Transgender have to make voice therapy to change their voice.

Also it could be he talk in another rythym, Obama speacks exactly like Al Sharpton when is giving an speach but shen normal he speak in another rythym.
