Burt Ward, TV’s Original ‘Robin’ Spotted Filming on The CW Lot

Anyone ever associated with a DC TV franchise seems to be in Vancouver filming The CW’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths” Arrowverse crossover. Tom Welling has been up there filming on the Kent family farm set, Kevin Conroy is just hanging out, and now Burt Ward has been spotted.


We’ve known for some time that Ward — who played Dick Grayson/Robin in ABC’s original Batman TV series opposite the late Adam West’s Caped Crusader — would be involved with the crossover, but we still don’t know in what capacity. We were told in the original report he would appear in the Batwoman episode, but we don’t know yet if he is playing a form of Dick Grayson or not. Although, judging by his sweater in the BTS shot below, we’re digging some Robin vibes. (via Batman News)


“Crisis on Infinite Earths” will be split over the winter break. Supergirl will kick things off on Dec. 8, Batwoman will follow on Dec 9, and The Flash will air on Dec. 10. Things will then pick back up on Jan. 14 with Arrow, and will wrap up with Legends of Tomorrow on the same night.
