The year is 2040; Bruce Wayne has retired as Batman and Gotham City is without a symbol of hope. However, like the Phoenix rising from the ashes, a new Batman will take Bruce's place: in the form of his newfound errand-boy, Terry McGinnis. The legend lives on. Batman goes beyond the Wayne legacy and into uncharted territory, making new enemies, friends, and reasons for why the world still needs Batman in it.

Kevin Conroy broke down how he found the right voice for the older version of Bruce Wayne "They actually had me read for the role because Bruce Wayne at that point he's 80 and he physically can't do it anymore and that's the whole genesis of the show, the whole reason it exists, is because [Bruce] needs a new recruit to do the stuff that the can't do," Conroy explained. "That first episode, when he goes to shoot a gun and that moment when he realized that he's crossing that line, that he's relying on a gun because he's own physical strength isn't enough anymore. So this [version of Bruce] had to be in his eighties. I was 45 [at the time], so it was a jump, so they had me audition. It wasn't so much the register of the voice because they very much went into that Batman range for my voice. But for me, it was more about the weight of life. It wasn't just the depth of the voice, it was the pace of the character." Casting and voice director Andrea Ramona went into even more detail about how Conroy would change his physical posture while he was in the recording booth to find the proper cadence for the elderly Bruce Wayne. "You would physically sit at the microphone differently when you were voicing older Bruce Wayne," Romano informed Conroy. "Because it actually helps to make Bruce Wayne's voice older if you hunch over a little bit, so he doesn't have that nice diaphragm strength, you know? You want him to be weaker. As much as your ability to manipulate your voice, it was really a lot about the acting. What is it like to be eighty, and to realize that [Bruce] can no longer do this? So there was a bitterness that Bruce Wayne had about that too, he was not pleased about the fact that he could no longer do it anymore." See more
