I may have fallen off the Arrowverse wagon a long time ago (at different points with each series), but I still very much respect some of the fan service they bring to the history of the franchise. The Flash has brought back John Wesley Shipp as both Barry’s dad and the Flash from another Earth, they’ve brought back Mark Hamill as the Trickster, and that barely scratches the surface of some of the deep cut greatness the rest of the shows have brought to the table.
In the upcoming Arrowverse crossover, the CW has made it clear they aren’t messing around, bringing back Burt Ward (from the 1960s Batman live-action series) to star as Robin. It was a great get for them, only made sour by the fact that Adam West, the 1960s Batman, has since passed. But it sounds like they’ve made the next best choice.
While at the TV Critics Association press tour, the CW announced that they have found their Caped Crusader, and that man is Kevin Conroy, who voiced the character in Batman: The Animated Series, as well as in later projects — both animated and in video game form.
He will join Burt Ward in “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” the big crossover that has been teased since the closing seconds of last year’s big crossover. This crossover will span Supergirl, Batwoman, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow episodes, and will be their most ambitious project yet.
