During the Batwoman panel at San Diego Comic Con, executive producer Caroline Dries revealed that Burt Ward, who portrayed Robin the 1960’s Batman television series alongside Adam West, will be appearing in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover event Crisis On Infinite Earths.
Speaking about the crossover, Dries said:
We’re currently working on the crossover. 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]. We’re going to see that bond evolve into a Kate/Kara friendship.
Burt Ward played Robin the original live-action series of Batman that ran between 1966 to 1968. It’s unclear as to who Burt Ward will play in the upcoming crossover event.
Aswell as the main cast members of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Batwoman and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Brandon Routh will appear as the Kingdom Come version of Superman, whilst Tyler Hoechlin will appear as Clark Kent/Superman.
