Kevin Conroy revealed that Crisis on Infinite Earths marked his first time appearing in Batman’s Batcave.
After years of providing the voice for Batman in the ’90s animated series and the Arkham video games, Kevin Conroy finally portrayed a live-action version of Bruce Wayne in Crisis on Infinite Earths. During his appearance in Crisis on Infinite Earths, Kevin Conroy’s Batman ended up confronting Ruby Rose’s Batwoman and Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl in the Batcave, where he ultimately died after his exoskeleton suit malfunctioned.
While Kevin Conroy has long been associated with Batman and is widely regarded as the best actor to portray the Dark Knight, it appears Crisis on Infinite Earths was the first time the actor had ever set foot in a Batcave set. During an interview with ComicBook.com, Kevin Conroy revealed that the closest he’s ever come to anything Batman-related was when he checked out the collection of Batmobile’s at the Petersen Auto Museum:
“I have never [visited one]. The closest I’ve gotten is, there’s a wonderful automobile museum in Los Angeles called the Petersen Auto Museum. They have an incredible collection of cars, and they have the Batmobile from the movie, the Michael Keaton original Batmobile. And they also have the Bugatti from the 1930s that was designed for the Shah of Iran, that was the prototype of the Batmobile, and it’s a million dollar car. That’s in the Petersen, and you can see the Batmobile in that car. It’s so beautiful. But that’s the closest I’d ever gotten to any bat-related props or things like that.”
