#SDCC2019 1960s Robin, Burt Ward, to appear in The CW’s Crisis event this December

July 20th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Following the exciting news from SDCC 2019 last night that Brandon Routh would be returning to play Superman in The CW’s Crisis On Infinite Earths event this December, we have another big name from he DC TV show multiverse confirmed now too.

At the SDCC Batwoman panel it’s just been confirmed that Burt Ward, Robin in the 1960s Batman TV series will also appear.

Now, it’s certainly possible he could be Dick Grayson in the crossover – albeit a much, much older version – but it’s more likely he’ll just be joining other DC TV alumni like Lynda Carter, Dean Cain, and Helen Slater who all appear in the Arrowverse but not as characters (Wonder Woman, Superman and Supergirl) they played in other shows.

But… imagine if he was like an Arrowverse version of Batman Beyond’s Bruce Wayne.

Man, these shows may have their downsides, but they certainly know how to deliver for the fans in the fun stakes too.

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….
