According to IGN, Conroy will next be heard in Bruce Timm’s upcoming return to TV animation, “Batman: Caped Crusader.” The show moved to Prime Video following David Zaslav’s big Warner Bros. massacre of 2022. At this point, it is unclear whether Conroy will specifically play Batman, although the actor did record for the show before his death in 2022.
The other project Conroy recorded lines for is “Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths, Part Three,” the last of a trilogy of animated films adapting the iconic comic book crossover event of the same name that changed the medium forever. “Part One” focused on Flash and the early days of the Tomorrowverse’s Justice League, before introducing the threat of an anti-matter wave destroying universes. IGN reports that the final part in the trilogy will bring back Conroy as none other than his Bruce Wayne/Batman from “Batman: The Animated Series.” This sounds like a fantastic idea, allowing the film to do for different animated DC TV and movie universes what the Arrowverse’s take on “Infinite Earths” did for the various live-action DC TV universes.
Conroy’s mark on the Caped Crusader won’t be forgotten, and it is good to know that his final appearance as the iconic character won’t be as just another bad guy in a video game.
