Burt Ward is going to ring in 2020 with a pretty big honor it would seem as he joins the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has announced that Ward will be honored with the 2,683rd star on Thursday, Jan. 9, 2020, and his accolade will be placed next to his late co-star, Adam West.
“Burt Ward and his character Robin have been cult heroes for many years, to fans of all ages,” said Ana Martinez, producer of the Walk of Fame. “We are thrilled to honor Burt with his star and happy to have been able to place Ward’s star next to the star of television’s ‘Batman,’ Adam West, and one of the creators of the ‘Batman’ character, Bob Kane.”
“We welcome him to our Walk of Fame family, and I cannot wait to say, ‘Holy Walk of Fame star, Burt!’ when he arrives to dedicate his star that day,” Martinez added.
Ward will be returning to the world of costumed heroes in the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover happening across the various Arrowverse series. It is unknown how large of a role he has in the story, but he will be appearing.
