Holy Moses on a cruise ship! We have a big announcement from Warner Bros and DC Comics. Get ready to set your fandom to over 9000 because this season’s special crossover event will feature Bruce Wayne played by none other than Kevin Conroy. The CW is hitting us right in the fan-ny bone with their DC shows, especially with their crossover events.
At 62, Kevin is too old to wear the cape and cowl so he has been cast to play an older Bruce. Could we see a glimpse of Terry McGinnis aka Batman Beyond because of this? That would be awesome.
In other related news, Cress Williams confirmed that Black Lightning characters will also appear in Crisis and Brandon Routh will don the suit once again as Superman. Routh currently plays Ray Palmer/Atom on Legends of Tomorrow. He has previously portrayed the Man of Steel in 2006’s “Superman Returns.” Burt Ward, who played Dick Grayson/Robin in the 1960s Batman alongside Adam West will also appear in Crisis. How cool would it be for Ward and Conroy to interact with each other?
If that happens, get out the defibrillator.
The Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event happens this Fall. The DC shows return in October beginning with Supergirl on October 6, followed by the premiere of Batwoman.
