It seems Kevin Conroy’s time as the Caped Crusader is far from over. Even though the actor has passed on, fans can still expect him to reprise his role as Batman in two more DC projects.
Many fans assumed that Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League would be the final project that would feature Kevin Conroy as Batman given the game’s proximity to his passing. However, it seems Conroy still has a few more performances locked away in the vault. According to IGN, the actor had recorded lines for both Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths – Part Three and Batman: Caped Crusader.
While Kevin Conroy will reprise his iconic Batman: The Animated Series role in Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths – Part Three, his role in Batman: Caped Crusader is being kept under wraps. Many speculate that Conroy will be voicing Thomas Wayne in the project as a tribute to his time as the character. Though it’s likely many fans don’t care what form the actor’s final performance takes, just so long as it isn’t Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League.
What to expect from the new animated Batman series
Batman: Caped Crusader is created by a powerhouse trio of Bruce Timm, J.J. Abrams, and Matt Reeves. Timm is a veteran of the Batman franchise, having previously worked on Batman: The Animated Series, which is widely considered to be one of the best-animated shows of all time. Abrams and Reeves are also no strangers to the world of superheroes due to their work on the Star Wars sequel trilogy and The Batman, respectively.
Bruce Timm, J.J. Abrams, and Matt Reeves said the following about Amazon’s Batman: Caped Crusader revival from Amazon: “We are beyond excited to be working together to bring this character back, to tell engrossing new stories in Gotham City. The series will be thrilling, cinematic, and evocative of Batman’s noir roots, while diving deeper into the psychology of these iconic characters. We cannot wait to share this new world.”
