Fans took to Twitter and expressed their varied opinions on the legacy left by the late actor. Whether to continue the franchise without him or shut down the DCAU altogether has been questioned.
I think WB should definitely pull the DCAU and Arkham versions of Batman. Kevin Conroy was one of the things that made these releases great, and I just don’t think they would work without him. pic.twitter.com/GSJG8XggBC

I think we might get one last performance from Kevin Conroy in Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League, but otherwise I’m okay. No one else should play these versions of the character.

People sitting on the other end of the side claimed that this was the complete opposite of what Kevin Conroy wanted. Stating that the legacy must continue from the DC Animated Universe, people have found a way to respect Kevin Conroy in their own way.
I don’t agree, I feel the opposite.
That the way to respect Conroy’s legacy and keep it alive is to have Roger Craig Smith continue work on projects that Kevin Conroy would have done in the future, because he looks very similar and will always remind us Kevin and his legacy.

Kevin is the one who passed, not Batman. He may have been the best, but I don’t think that legacy should die just because Kevin did. Find someone who will honor his voice and carry on that legacy. I’m sure that’s a great voice match somewhere.

I would rather he lived, I don’t know if Kevin would have agreed, maybe. But I know Batman would.
As a man he can be destroyed, he can pass, but he is not a single man, he is a symbol, an idea, both should be able to live.
