As if Brandon Routh reprising the role of Superman in this year’s DC TV crossover was not enough, now comes news from Comic-Con that Burt Ward from the classic 1966 Batman TV series will be appearing in this year’s crossover, Crisis on Infinite Earths.
The news came at the end of the Batwoman panel at Comic-Con, courtesy of Batwoman Executive Producer Caroline Dries.
“We’re currently working on the crossover,” she said to the Ballroom 2o crowd. “We’ve got a ton, a ton, a ton of characters coming into the five-part event… Burt Ward will be making an appearance [in Crisis on Infinite Earths].”
Crisis on Infinite Earths will go on for 5 episodes late this year and into early 2020. The shows involved at this moment include Batwoman, Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
