If you ever watched Batman cartoons growing up, were a fan of the Justice League TV series, or played any of the games in the Arkham or Injustice series, you’ve heard Kevin Conroy. His deep, sonorous, honorable voice has become practically synonymous with the vengeful, brooding Dark Knight, and at this point, if someone besides Conroy is behind the mic, it doesn’t feel authentic.
After over 25 years of playing Batman he’s taken the character practically anywhere there is to go. He’s even done musical numbers. Despite all the work Conroy has done as Batman, he’s never played the caped crusader live before – until now.
The CW recently announced that Conroy has been cast to play an older Bruce Wayne in the upcoming “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” a series that will span two quarters and consist of “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “Legends of Tomorrow,” and “Batwoman.”
The crossover series will air between December and January, and is set to be five episodes total.
While it’s unlikely we’ll get to see Conroy donning a bat suit, seeing him play an older, more grizzled Bruce Wayne will be incredibly cool. As always, we can’t imagine better casting for the part.
