Crisis On Infinite Earths: Why Kevin Corney Is Neglecting Batman?

Crisis on Infinite Earths is an amazing series of American comic books published by DC comics. The series, written by Marv Wolfman and penciled by George Pérez, was first serialized as a 12-issue limited series from April 1985 to March 1986.

Crises on Infinite Earths will see the heroes of Arrow team up with those of Supergirl, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and even the Batwomen.  Along the way, the characters will encounter a whole host of new and familiar faces. Brandon Routh will play one of each – appearing as both Ray Palmer and Kingdom Come Superman – while Conroy will guest-star as Bruce Wayne.

Kevin Conroy is confirmed to be appearing in the Arrowverse’s highly-anticipated Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover, but why is he only playing Bruce Wayne and not Batman?
Corney is technically the longest-serving Batman of all time. Despite strictly appearing in animation or video games, he is also regularly considered the best by fans. As such, it was considered well overdue for Conroy to appear in live-action. The announcement, however, also led to the inevitable question – why was he cast as Bruce Wayne but not Batman?

The most obvious answer would probably be age. Conroy is 63 years old, so jumping around and attacking from the shadows would likely fall outside of his considerable abilities. On the other hand, that’s nothing a stunt double couldn’t fix, enabling the show to have even a much older Bruce Wayne still able to hold his own. The more probable answer is that the Arrowverse is still not allowed to use Batman. There was a time even mentions of Gotham city and Bruce Wayne were off-limits. Warner Bros. has since eased back on that decision, however. Still, an actual appearance of the Caped Crusader is clearly a different matter altogether – especially with a Robert Pattison- starring film in the works.
