Burt Ward to appear on Batwoman during Crisis on Infinite Earths

It seems that the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover this year is going to have a number of interesting twists. On Friday we learned Brandon Routh will suit up as Superman, and now Burt Ward will be appearing on Batwoman.

During the Batwoman panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, executive producer Caroline 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, but Burt Ward will be making an appearance.”

Ward is known the world over to Batman fans for playing Robin in the 1966 Batman TV series. There’s no word as of yet as to who he will play in the crossover, but it’s nice to see him included.

Batwoman will premiere on The CW on Oct. 6.
