Kevin Conroy, best known for voicing the Caped Crusader in "Batman: The Animated Series," and other animated "Bat-shows," video games such as "Injustice" and direct-to-consumer movies featuring DC Comics most celebrated superhero, will now lend his talents to the popular directions/mapping app.

DC is a division of WarnerMedia, which is owned by AT&T.

He's not alone, however, as drivers can also be directed by one of Batman's arch-nemeses, The Riddler, who is voiced by Wally Wingert, the actor known for portraying the character in the "Batman Arkham" video games.
