There is no official release as to what his full role will be during the crossover, only that he will be making a special guest appearance. It is rumored that Conroy will appear as an older version of Bruce Wayne from the future. However, it could mean anything from a live-action Bruce Wayne or a voice-only role. He could also play an older version of Bruce Wayne from Earth-1 or Bruce Wayne from another universe. He could also appear as the Batman he helped cultivate thirty years ago in Batman: The Animated Series.
This casting announcement follows the announcement of Brandon Routh, who will be playing Superman as well as The Atom. It also follows the announcement that Burt Ward, former Robin in the 1960’s Batman TV series, will be appearing in the crossover, too.
