Batman and Black Lightning are coming to The CW's Crisis.

As revealed at the 2019 Television Critics Association summer press tour, the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover will span five episodes across to quarters and feature characters from Black Lightning in their first-ever Arrowverse crossover and Kevin Conroy as Bruce Wayne from the future.

Longtime DC Comics fans will recognize Conroy—he voiced the title role in Batman: The Animated Series, as well as several key animated projects and video games, including Batman Beyond, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox and Batman: The Killing Joke. He'll appear in person during the event, not just voice.
