The CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover is only getting bigger. Yesterday, there were a series of announcements for the crossover at a Television Critics Association event. Rather excitingly, Kevin Conroy, one of the most prolific Batman voice actors, has been revealed to be playing an older Bruce Wayne. This marks the first time Wayne has appeared in the Arrowverse.
After the announcement, Conroy tweeted the following:

Conroy’s played an older Wayne before, in the Batman Beyond animated series. It’ll be interesting to see if Conroy’s playing that same Bruce in this crossover, or if Will Friedle will reprise his role as future Gotham’s Batman, Terry McGinnis.
As Deadline reports, Marv Wolfman will be writing Arrow’s part of the crossover, which’ll be the eighth episode of its final season. This is really fitting, as Wolfman wrote the original COIE comic from 1985 – 1986. They also report that Black Lightning characters will be joining the other Arrowverse heroes for the first time in Crisis, though it won’t have a crossover episode.
Crisis on Infinite Earths begins December, airing three episodes, ending in January with the last two.
