Kevin Conroy Will Play Batman in CW’s Epic Crossover Event!

Kevin Conroy certainly made, if not his name, then his voice known to millions after voicing Bruce Wayne/Batman in the epic Batman: The Animated Series, which ran from 1992 to 1995.

Afterwards, however, he didn’t hang up his cape and cowl, instead he went on to voice Batman in so many animated projects that he’s the voice of Batman in your head, throat cancer and menacing whispers aside.

Now he’s about to lend not only his voice but his whole body for the most-climatic climatic episode of Arrow. Titled Crisis on Infinite Earths, the episode isn’t actually a single episode. In fact, it will be a five hour…

…FIVE HOUR event that will span over the course of two months instead of, like previous crossovers, airing on consecutive nights. The first three episodes will air in on December 8, 9, and 10 and the other two will air back-to-back as one of Arrow’s final episodes and a special non-season-premiere of Legends.

If five hours of television wasn’t enough, well, you’re going to get more. SO MUCH MORE!

 

 

The event will encompass Arrowverse show: SupergirlThe FlashLegends Of TomorrowBatwoman, and, of course, Arrow.

Yes, we do, and we’re in luck. The event will deal with the multiverse. That means there will be multiple versions of the same character from different universes.

We’re going to get Tyler Hoechlin will be Supergirl’s Superman, Brandon Routh will be Superman Returns‘ Superman, Tom Wellington is in talks to play Smallville‘s Superman, but Michael Rosenbaum will be Lex Luthor.

In addition we’ll not only have Kevin Conroy as Batman, Burt Ward as a Robin from a universe where his Batman is dead.

Black Lightning will be making his first appearance in the Arrowverse, crossing over from his decidedly non-Arrowverse CW show, along with some Black Lightning friends.

Can they fit all that in five hours? I don’t know, but I’m as excited as a Teletubby.

$42,000 in Comic Books Stolen!

Holy thievery Batman!

Yes, Robin?

A smash-and-grab crook stole $42,000 worth of comic books from a Denver Store. Shouldn’t I be explaining this to you? isn’t that our thing? Also, which Denver Store?

Mile High Comics. Fox31 Denver says the store “is known for its large collection” and “has some of the rarest and most expensive comic books in the world”. Once he broke the glass, the dastardly devil stole valuable books that “had been locked in Mile High Comics’ showcase at 4600 Jason St. ahead of Denver Comic Con this weekend”.

Do we know who did it? Was it the Joker? It was the Joker, right?

We don’t know who did it, but this cruel crook cut himself on the glass and afterwards he tried to clean up the blood with toilet cleaner.

Just one question: Did he steal a Batman comic?

On a serious note, the merchandise stolen from the Denver store “includes the first ‘Avengers’ comic book, the first ‘Iron Man’ book and a rare autographed ‘Spider-Man’ edition”. It’s some expensive comic, and supposedly that Avengers comic book is wroth “about $14,000, according to experts” and fourteen books stolen are, all together, total about $42,000.

“Whoever did it knew what they were going for,” William Moulton of Mile High Comics told Denver7.

This seems right on the money, given that the security footage shows “the thief picking specific comics and putting them in a plastic bin”.

His plan didn’t go off without a hitch, however, because in the process, “the burglar cut his hand or arm on a piece of broken glass” before proceeding to grab window cleaner and toilet bowl cleaner wipe up the blood.

The thief eventually took both the comics and the trash can filled with the bits of broken glass.

As of now the thief remains at large, but even Batman encourages anyone with information to call Denver Police at (720) 913-2000.
