Now Playing: Arrow-verse Crisis On Infinite Earths Cross-Over Adds Iconic Batman Actor - GameSpot Universe News Update

The CW's upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover, which will bring the various Arrow-verse shows together for their biggest showdown yet, just got a bit more interesting. It was announced at the TCA press tour that none other than Bruce Wayne himself would finally appear in the universe.

What's even more exciting is who will play the role. Batman: The Animated Series star Kevin Conroy will appear as a version of Bruce Wayne from the future. It's interesting to note that the press release from The CW notes this Bruce is from the future. That means he likely won't be the version Batwoman's Kate Kane (Ruby Rose) is familiar with. It was not revealed whether he would also portray Batman.

Conroy joins Burt Ward as previous Batman stars that will appear in Crisis. Additionally, Legends of Tomorrow star Brandon Routh will suit up as Superman--a role he played in 2006's Superman Returns.

The CW has also revealed that stars of Black Lightning will finally join the Arrow-verse in the crossover. In its first two seasons, the show was kept separate from the rest of the network's DC Entertainment shows. With Crisis, though, it'll be joining the pack.

Crisis on Infinite Earths will air over five episodes of TV. It kicks off with the December 8 episode of Supergirl, followed by Batwoman on December 9, and The Flash on December 10. Then, the event will conclude with installments of Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow on January 14.
