EDITOR'S OPINION

Today on the Batman VC section we have yet another member of Batman's enormous Rogues Gallery and this time its for that Big Green Reptilian Hulking monster... KILLER CROC! While this isn't a really big VC I thought I will try to do something a little different here that I don't do often...

1. Brooks Gardner (I am actually going to go with this one at first place because not only does he do a rough and beastly performance but I like on how fairly deep his Croc voice is. In which considering on how enormous Killer Croc is I figured that a deep, gruff beastly voice would work well with the role here. Granted Brooks is not quite perfect for the role but he is closer to it than others.)

2. Aron Kincaid, Edwin Neal, Khary Payton, Steve Blum [BAC], Fred Tatasciore (Their respective voices deliver a certain gruffness to the role as they do sound rather beastly. However the only reason why they don't quite share the #1 spot with Brooks is that their voices are not quite deep enough compared to Brooks. Granted the late Aron Kincaid and Edwin Neal's respective Killer Croc's voices aren't all that high or anything but still.)

3. Ron Perlman & Stephen Root (When I first heard Ron's Croc voice I admit my initial reaction was "Whats with the Southern Accent?" Granted Ron's attempt at a Southern Accent wasn't bad but it felt a little strange to hear it on Croc at first. However I noticed on in "The Batman" the show tried to give Croc a playfully cocky attitude and I liked Ron's performance on how he is actually able to make it work in a way. To make a long story short the Southern Accent on Ron's Croc voice might take a little getting use to but his performance is an interesting take on Killer Croc.)

4. Steve Blum [BAA] (This one was quite a mixed bag to me as despite Blum's good efforts in trying to sound gruff and beastly his Croc voice was a little too high for a big beast like Killer Croc, especially considering on how Croc was even more enormous than usual in that game. However the reason why I won't really consider Blum's handiwork on the role to be really bad is his performance. While Steve Blum's voice for the role may be a bit too high for a enormous monster like Croc his performance definitely suited Croc's monstrous nature well as he sounded monstrous but with a touch of vulnerability. So lets just say its definitely not one of Steve Blum's best performances but there are somewhat worse cases of him coming off as a bit miscast. But to be fair his work in Batman Arkham City was a lot better though.)  

So to make a long story none of these performances are bad and none of them are flat out perfect for the role but I suppose that Brooks Gardner is my choice here.

In Batman: Arkham Knight, Killer Croc should be voiced by Richard Moll, Michael Dorn, Wade Williams, Brooks Gardner or James Remar. They'd be perfect for him.

8. Stephen Root. I... don't eve know what to say. It's a charming voice! Just... not one that fits Croc in any shape or form.

7. Edwin Neal. Generic Monster voice. Nothing to write about.

6. Aaron. A good performance, but it doesn't quite mesh, and the watery quality to his voice hampers thing.

5. Fred. His typical voice, but it works well enough. At times it sounds a bit too... cartoony, though, and bad writing (The thing about steroids, Bats, is that I get the /munchiesss/...") sinks it further.

4. Khary. Good work. Sounds like a younger Blum, and decently intimidating, but doesn't quite make it to the realm of great.

3. Brooks. Deep, ear-catching, with good and emotional delivery lending him a sympathetic touch.

2. Steve. An already good performance in Asylum, if at times too high or forced, is mastered in City. He's downright terrifying, and he really hits the bestial tone most of these VAs are going for.

1. Still, I gotta go with Ron, for sounding unique, intelligent, and giving Croc a charm and feel beyond crocodile man. It's just a delight to listen to, and I think could fit in a farther array of situations than most of the other voices. I could very much see Ron play the ruthless yet human New 52 Croc, comforting and sponsoring Roy and taking in and protecting refugees and homeless people while tearing apart anyone who threatens them. And in terms of being terrifying... well, his Slade and Lich King show off his talent for that, and I think it would be /more/ terrifying to imagine facing this cool, collected man stalking you through the sewers, patient and implacable, strolling through like it's a hot summer day and talking about how he's starting to work up an appetite, and that while you probably won't match up to momma's sweet, sweet chicken, and just how nicely those chicken bones snapped, but you'll do. Ron is a versatile, unique performer who could touch on all of Croc's facets and make him unique, and that's why he has my vote.

Aron is just classic. His higher rasp fits extremely well in making Croc both scary, and helps with some of his comedic delivery at times (I THREW A ROCK AT HIM!!) 8.5/10

Brooks is a very underrated portrayal of the character IMO. His deep voice fits Crocs size and strength very well, and his delivery was very good, especially in his episode with Baby Doll. 8.5/10

I will admit that Rons cajun accent sounds odd at first, but after a while it grows on you. Rons raspy voice plus that accent add some more personality to croc other than just being big dumb muscle, and it is a very welcome decision. 9/10

Steves deep and extremely raspy voice fits extremely well in making Croc a terrifying monster of a man. Plus his delivery at times just sends chills down my back, especially that ending line in Arkham City. 9/10

Edwin has promise here, it's just very sad he didn't have all that much to work with. His gravelly voice fits the design well and again I wish he had been given more material. 7/10

Stephen is still odd. He has this weird accent, and there's just something about it that seems off. It doesn't really show all that much size and big deepness to it like Croc should have, and instead it's a somewhat awkwardly delivered performance from Root. It isn't horrible, it just isn't really that great. 4.5/10

When I saw Khary was going to be Croc I was very skeptical, but I was very surprised here with his portrayal here. He has the great rasp I've never heard Khary use, and it fits very well, and it does sound like a younger version of the Arkham Asylum version of Croc which also fits well. 8/10

Fred was a natural choice here when I first saw him listed in the role, and when I heard him I wasn't disappointed. He has this fantastic rasp to the voice that makes Crocs monstrous side, size, and strength show. 9/10

1. Fred
2. Ron
3. Steve
4. Aron
5. Brooks
6. Khary
7. Edwin
8. Stephen

@skeletonking1234 Ah crap I forgot about Wade Williams in Beware the Batman.

Wade goes back to using the Cajun accent voice that Ron used, and Wades medium-high rasp fits the character very well, and is very good at sounding sinister. Not really all that much to say, just a good performance on Wades part. 8/10

Just put him between Aron and Brooks

I think the perfect Croc would have been Michael Clarke Duncan. Something big, deep, and monstrous, and at the same time very natural sounding.

One of the fan favorite casting decisions for Croc is Vin Diesel, and I 100% agree. (Especially if it was on-camera. Put him through the four hour make-up process and he'd be perfect.)

1-: Steve Blum: This performance legitimately scared me when playing the game as a younger kid. Really monstrous and fits the more mutated version to a tee.

3-: Khary Payton: A nice change of pace for him, reminds me of Steve, but doesn't really get as much to do.
4-:Aron Kincaid: A fairly decent performance, and some of his lines could be really funny ( I threw a rock at him!!! It was a big one...", but it doesn't sound quite brutish enough.
5-: Ron Perlman: Entertaining, but the Cajun accent makes it hard for me to take this version of Croc seriously at points.

Im honestly going with Steven Blums,not his first tape withc is meh,but his second one in Arkham city really cathes the monstrous and bestial nature of killer croc

Aron Kincaid,i have one idea what makes his character a croc,but for what it is he does a decet job,giving a matchin gravelly voice to this rather dim witted version of the character

I dont like Brooks Gardner,he just sounds like a generic villain sounds deep take.

Im really disapointed with Ron Pearlman.Im okay with the cajun accent and i like his depiciton in the Batman,but his voice is just so generic,i really expected more from Pearlman.

and the weakest of them all is Stephen Roots his take is a real joke to me,for all purpuses he sound like senile,old southerner with a speach disorder.

Aron Kincaid is a bit too forced and high-pitched, and the slight accent was odd, but I guess his performance worked out fine. Ron Perlman's is similar, but more over-the-top, and the accent is way too thick for my tastes. Overall, both were ok, but they could've done better IMO.

Brooks Gardner is perfect, his deep voice is obviously more than suitable for a big thug like Croc, and the gruffness only serves to make him more intimidating. Of course, even Croc had his more sympathetic moments in the series but Brooks' performance did deliver on that.

Edwin Neal and Stephen Root are too forced and over-the-top, even more so than Perlman, and while getting rid of the weird accent was an improvement, they unfortunately don't offer anything else to make their voices more distinct than the others. Regardless, I'd be interested to hear more of them should they reprise Croc sometime.

Steve Blum isn't bad, I like how his Croc is quite distinct from his other voices, and he has a sort of gruffness that adds to the character's looming presence. Still, it's a bit too high, and while he improved in Arkham City, it's still a bit light for my tastes.

Brooks Gardner- This voice fits croc the best in my mind. He sounds deep, kind of raspy, and powerful. 9/10

Ron Perlman- I love the country/cajun style accent Perlman gave Croc and Perlman has this creepy kind of laidback style of voice for Croc that works very well. 8/10

Edwin Neal- While not getting that many lines, Neal left a great impression and his voice fit extremely well for the part. 8/10

Stephen Root- Its the weakest out of all the Croc voices and it has a strange accent he gave it but it isn't horrible, it just isn't up to the caliber that the other performances are. 6/10

Steve Blum- While I'm not as prone to liking this as everyone else is, Blum did a decent job as the role. My only gripe is that I think he made him a little too raspy, but it still works very well for Croc. 8.5/10

Overall I'll have to go with Brooks with Aron and Steve tied for 2nd and Ron at 3rd

I think Ron Perlman is the best but Steve blum is also very good. Brooks Gardner is probably third with Edwin Neal in fourth and I did'nt like Aron Kincaid or Stephen Root because Kincaid played a dumb croc and Root played an irish one which was wierd

I LOVE RON PERLMANS PERFORMANCE. I thought the accent was a cool touch that made his voice stand out among the rest. I never liked Arons take. He always felt like won of the weaker voices in BTAS, but Brook did better. I never minded Steven's raspy take, but he did sound better in AC. Edwin Neal sounds like he gave it all he had. Stephan Roots nothing special.

@I'm changing my vote to Ron Perlman. Steve Blum still sounds great as a hulking monster in AC (although it's obvious that it's been edited in post), but Ron Perlman just offers so much more personality than any of the other takes that I just can't help but vote for him.

Brooks Gardner- A good, deep voice for Croc. Might have sounded more menacing with a different type of dialogue.

Steve Blum- Speaking as one of his biggest fans, I have to say I was disappointed by his voice work for AA. I think he pulled off the menace, but it was too high pitched. His work in AC was a step up.

Ron Perlman- As a boy from Lousiana, I have to say I love the accent. Still, it was pretty forgetable to me, at least until I rewatched the episode ;)

Have to go with Aron. He just had so much *character* to that voice, and was clearly having a blast in the role. Plus, "I THREW A ROCK AT HIM!" *blank stares* "It was a big rock...."


Blum is rather threatening in the role, and I do enjoy Perlman and Root's more Cajun takes.

I'm confused as to why people choose Steve Blum.

Biggest reason: It's from Arkham Asylum, it's immediately perfect.

I admit that Arkham's Croc is very well-designed, but his voice is kinda off-putting. It's too high-pitched for his size and reputation.

I'll take Perlman.
CatsTuxedo (Moderator)

@Sarge Ray I believe you answered your own question, depressingly enough.

The sad truth is that the public at large is a bunch of sheep. As a whole, they neither care for actual voice talent nor probably even know what it is. If the majority loves a TV show, movie or video game for whatever strange reason (be it stiff, "realistic" character design with too much arbitrary details or a dead-serious, somber tone with a few pathos scenes thrown in for good measure), you could have the blandest, most unidentifiable voices in the world and the sheep will blindly flock to it and sing its praises.
TheVengeanceKnight

@Sarge Ray Or maybe because the majority vote aren't a bunch of "sheep" as everyone else assumes and genuinely believe that he's the best performance?
Nightmare Crusher

@TheVengeanceKnight I wish I could say that was true, but it often isn't. The best example of this I can think of is Thundercats. Tons of votes came in for the new series purely because it was popular. I'm not saying that every vote for voices from the new series was because of that, but it certainly helps.

@pokemastanumba1 I wouldn't be too surprised if a little Blum-fan-bias had a little bit to do with it, but I think the main and major overall factor is that he sounds the most like a monster. While the other actors are good, (I myself prefer Ron Perlman and Brooks Gardner slightly over him because I feel they have more personality) Blum makes him sound the most like a crocodile-mutant-man, and that is a little hard to dispute.

I take back what I said about Steve Blum (and Edwin Neal too) they don't sound quite deep enough for Croc.

Aron Kincaid for me, he had a voice that sounded human yet reptilian at the same time, remember Croc is "supposed to be" someone with a skin condition, not an actual reptile. At least that's how the original was intended.

Ron Perlman comes in 2nd, but only after Andrea Romano came on board and was able to sustain the accent so to speak.
