Kevin Conroy revealed he is interested in returning as an older Bruce Wayne for a live-action version of Batman Beyond.
Kevin Conroy has been voicing Bruce Wayne/Batman for over 25 years years and will finally make his live-action debut on the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover next week. Kevin Conroy is set to play a Kingdom Come version of Bruce Wayne and will appear in the Batwoman episode of the crossover. This will mark the first time that Bruce Wayne has appeared in the Arrowverse, however Batman is not expected to appear.
With Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman getting his own Arrowverse spin-off, perhaps a Batman series is next? Warner Bros. is notably protective of the Batman character, but the studio is allowing Bruce Wayne to appear on Crisis on Infinite Earths and Titans. While there hasn’t been a live-action Batman on TV for sometime, a loophole could be accomplished with a live-action Batman Beyond series. Kevin Conroy also seems to be thinking about this as well based off a recent interview he had with Comicbook.com:
“Wouldn’t that be awesome? That would be so awesome. I was thinking that as I was doing this, that I’m kind of inhabiting Old Bruce Wayne from Batman Beyond. He’s not that old — Bruce Wayne in Batman Beyond is like 80. He’s not that old in this but he is as limited in his ability to be physical in this. He’s not fully able-bodied. In that sense he’s like Old Bruce Wayne in Batman Beyond. And I was using the voice, actually, from Old Bruce Wayne from Batman Beyond. I was thinking, it would be great to do that. I would love it.”
