We are a few days away from the start of The CW’s epic crossover event which combines all of its DC shows as heroes will unite and heroes will fall as they try to save the multiverse from a threat so great that it will take all of them to counterattack the destruction that is imminent.
This event which is set to surpass all the other crossover mini-series of the past and it is said that it will be the TV equivalent of Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame.
The new extended trailer just released teases the death of Superman, or at least one of them, and the death of many more.
Official Synopsis: The small screen version of Crisis on Infinite Earths will pit all the superheroes of the Arrowverse (Green Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Batwoman, the Legends of Tomorrow) against the Anti-Monitor, a being with god-like power who’s intent on wiping out as many earths as he can.

The heroes will need 7 special individuals to help them foil the Anti-Monitor’s plans including three different Supermen played by Tyler Hoechlin, Brandon Routh (who will play the Kingdom Come version of the Man of Steel and Tom Welling.
The Crisis On Infinite Earths is taken from the classic DC comic mini-series of the same name and it will be interesting to see if this will be as successful on screen as it was in the pages.
