Kevin Conroy on the Challenge of Playing Bruce Wayne in Crisis
For the first time in nearly three decades, Kevin Conroy will finally be portraying Bruce Wayne in live-action during Crisis on Infinite Earths. Conroy has been the fan favorite voice of the Dark Knight since Batman: The Animated Series in the ’90s. However, Conroy is no stranger to being in front of the camera. During a recent interview with EW, Conroy touched upon the challenges of taking his iconic role to the next level.
“It threw me at first,” admitted Conroy. “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 clothes 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,” added Conroy. “It did take a while to get used to, I have to admit. I was surprised because I know the character so well.”
Supergirl will kick off Crisis on Infinite Earths on Sunday, December 8. The second part will unfold in Batwoman on Monday, December 9. Meanwhile, The Flash will feature the third part on Tuesday, December 10. Then on Tuesday, January 14, 2020, Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will wrap up the crossover.
