Kevin Conroy Talks About Playing Batman In Crisis
Apart from voicing Batman in Batman: The Animated Series, Conroy has voiced him in Justice League, Batman Beyond, Justice League Unlimited and more. But his run as Batman isn’t over yet. He will play Batman in live-action in the mega Arrowverse crossover Crisis on Infinite Earths. He also talked about his experience playing Batman in the crossover. Conroy will appear in the Batwoman part of the crossover. He told Entertainment Weekly:
“I can’t emphasize enough how welcoming everyone was, especially Ruby. She is so open and giving. I just fell into her eyes at one point and we just connected on camera. It was wonderful… I felt like I was working with old friends I’d known for years. There was just such trust there that I could open up to them on camera it threw me at first. I never approached this character from that physicalized aspect. I always just inhabited him with my voice. When you do that in a recording studio, it’s a very intimate experience and you’re sort of living in your own imagination. You do it with your eyes closed and you’re in this other world, and you have Mark Hamill feeding you all the energy you [need], and the other actors (because we always recorded together in the booths).”
“To actually be on the set, in the physical world, and to be walking as the character and inhabiting the character in three dimensions, it was a real transition for me. It did take a while to get used to, I have to admit. I was surprised because I know the character so well.”
Kevin Conroy will join other notable guest stars for Crisis like Smallville’s Tom Welling and Erica Durance, Black Lightning’s Cress Williams, Stargirl’s Brec Bassinger, Batman’s Burt Ward and more.
Crisis on Infinite Earths will begin with Supergirl on Sunday, December 8th at 8/7c.
