Iconic Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy is set to make his live-action debut as Bruce Wayne in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover, Crisis on Infinite Earths.
Kevin Conroy will play a future version of Bruce Wayne in the Arrowverse, The CW announced today during the Television Critics Association summer press tour. Kevin Conroy has voiced the Caped Crusader since Batman: The Animated Series debuted in 1992 and also provided the voice for the iconic DC superhero in the three main installments of the Arkham game series. Kevin Conroy has yet to portray the character in live-action — that is, until now.
The network also revealed the airdates for the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event. While The CW has confirmed that Crisis On Infinite Earths will air over two quarters, it remains unclear whether or not the five-hour event will consist of the midseason finales for Arrowverse shows. The crossover episode for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow has been confirmed as a special episode and not the fifth season premiere. The full schedule for the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover is as follows:
Supergirl: Sunday, Dec. 8 at 8/7c (special time)
Batwoman: Monday, Dec. 9 at 8 pm (special day)
The Flash: Tuesday, Dec. 10 at 8 pm
Arrow: Tuesday, Jan. 14 at 8 pm (special time)
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Tuesday, Jan. 14 at 9 pm (special episode)
In addition to Kevin Conroy, Crisis on Infinite Earths will also feature appearances from Cress Williams’ Black Lightning, Jon Cryer’s Lex Luthor, Elizabeth Tulloch’s Lois Lane, and Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman. Brandon Routh will also be reprising his role as Superman, along with Burt Ward who will reprise his Batman ’66 role as Robin.
Plot details remain under wraps but rumors suggest the Arrowverse will look incredibly different after Crisis On Infinite Earths. The crossover is rumored to feature the deaths of several major characters from Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
The upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event has been teased since the very first episode of Grant Gustin’s The Flash, where a newspaper headline from the year 2024 revealed the Barry Allen’s fate was to disappear during a “crisis.” But the fifth season finale of Grant Gustin’s The Flash accelerated this when the original newspaper headline changed the date of the event from 2024 to 2019. To add to this, the seventh season finale of Stephen Amell’s Arrow set up Oliver Queen’s role in the next crossover by having him join the Monitor on a mission to warn other worlds of the crisis, as part of the arrangement Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen made in order to save the lives of both Grant Gustin’s The Flash and Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl.
