Kevin Conroy Teases His ‘Bruised’ Crisis On Infinite Earth Batman

You don’t need to be a gigantic Batman fan to know he’s a bit of a broken man, and as he gets older, he tends to get harder and more jaded. Oftentimes, in spite of his best efforts, Gotham City continues have villains coming out of every alley. We’ve seen this in the comics, and even within the Arrowverse, we’ve seen a Gotham abandoned by Bruce Wayne for unknown reasons.

It’s because of this that it’s no surprise he’ll be a bit of a downer when he pops up in Crisis on Infinite Earths, the upcoming crossover set to begin next week. For the first time, beloved voice actor Kevin Conroy will be playing an aged Bruce Wayne, and he isn’t exactly happy.

When asked by TV Insider about the mental state of Bruce in the crossover, Conroy refers to a beloved Batman film.

“In Mask of the Phantasm, Bruce falls in love with Andrea Beaumont, and he discovers that’s what life’s really about. He tries to get out of his vow to his parents and he can’t. His fate pulls him back and he realizes he can’t escape his fate, so he’s doomed not to know love.

“This Bruce in “Crisis” is the result of 30 years of living that way. It’s 30 years of giving and giving and giving and giving and giving and never having any love to replenish his soul and this is where we find him in this version. He’s a very bruised individual.”

And what about the exoskeleton we saw him donning in the trailer?

“…it’s the result of so many battles. His body has literally fallen apart. In his amazing way, he’s such a MacGyver in terms of creating these incredible tools in his workshop that he has created this amazing suit that supports his body because his body is so broken at that point.

“That suit is a great metaphor for what I think of him spiritually and emotionally where he is. He’s given to the point where he can’t even stand up anymore without the help of this mechanical contraption, so think of what he’s like emotionally at that point.”

If there’s someone who’s in need of some emotional refueling, it sounds like it’ll be this version of Bruce Wayne. Given how many cameos they’ll be having in this crossover, I just hope there’s time to give Brucey the salvation he deserves.
