If you’ve ever dreamed of riding shotgun with the Caped Crusader inside his Batmobile, then here’s some great news – the iconic voice of Kevin Conroy’s Batman is now available on Waze.

As part of the upcoming Batman Day celebration on September 19, Waze has collaborated with Warner Bros. and DC to include the voices of Conroy and Wally Wingert’s The Riddler on the navigation app until October 31.

“By partnering with Waze on this innovative interactive program, we are giving fans the opportunity to get behind the wheel of their own reimaged Batmobile as the iconic DC Super Hero Batman who is known for having incredible gadgets and the coolest vehicles,” said Robert Oberschelp, senior vice president, global brand product, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “As fans gear up to celebrate this year’s Batman Day, this will add some fun to their drive and take their imagination to new places.”

Apart from hearing directions from the two DC icons, users can also change their car symbol with the Batmobile or The Riddler’s Racer. And to complete the Batman-themed riding experience, the new feature also allows users to listen to DC Super Hero or Super-Villain playlists on Spotify which include the music from Hanz Zimmer, John DiMaggio, Prince and Danny Elfman.

To drive with Batman and The Riddler while listening to their character-inspired songs on Spotify, you can check out the Drive with Batman playlist here while Riddler's curated songs can be found here.

Kevin Conroy is best known for his portrayal in the 1992’s Batman: The Animated Series. He also voiced the character of Bruce Wayne in several DC animated movies such as Batman: The Killing Joke and acclaimed video games like Injustice and Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham trilogy. Recently, Conroy also brought the character of the Dark Knight on the small screen in Crisis in Infinite Earths. Meanwhile, Wally Wingert also lent his voice to give life to The Riddler in Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City, Batman: Origins and Batman: Arkham Knight.
