Batman ’89 star Robert Wuhl back for The CW’s Crisis On Infinite Earths?

October 13th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Following on from our piece referring to the appearance of a newspaper featuring Michael Keaton’s Batman/Bruce Wayne in The CW’s upcoming Crisis On Infinite Earths, we have news that an actor from those movies may also be appearing.

Robert Wuhl, who played Alexander Knox in Tim Burton’s first Batman movie, will be appearing in the crossover according to a new report.

This would make sense since, in the Keaton newspaper report it’s in The Gotham Gazette, the paper Knox is a journalist for in the movie… and is also the reporter following the Batman as he hunts Gotham criminals; so it’s not out of the question that he was the writer of the actual article (in universe) we see.

Reprotedly his role will be a small one, with him sitting on a park bench reading a (the?) newspaper and reacting to something in the sky above.

It sounds like this is a nod rather than a direct link to the  Burton movies… but it’s still fun and I can’t wait to see him in the DC universe afain after 30 years.

Another bit of rumour news is that Justin Hartley is appearing in the crossover too.

Hartley played Oliver Queen in Smallville and since we’ve heard there will be numerous Green aArrows in the event, this isn’t entirely out of the question either.

What say you all? Are these actors you would like to see in these roles again? Chime in in all the usual ways.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
