Arrowverse Superman (apparently) dies in the extended trailer for the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event.
An extended trailer for Crisis on Infinite Earths released online today and it features plenty of brand-new footage – including, most pointedly, a clip of a news report that shows Supergirl‘s version of Superman (Tyler Hoechlin), after being killed in battle by Lex Luthor in what’s a clear-cut homage to The Death of Superman comic book’s famous artwork. You can check it out in the space below.
Given the scope and scale of “Crisis,” some have made the comparison to another major superhero ensemble from this year, Avengers: Endgame. However, showrunner Marc Guggenheim downplayed that notion, saying, “Endgame is an exclamation point. ‘Crisis’ is a semi-colon.”
“Crisis on Infinite Earths” begins Sunday, Dec. 8 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Supergirl, then continues in Batwoman on Monday, Dec. 9 at 8 p.m. ET/PT and in The Flash on Tuesday, Dec. 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. After the winter hiatus, the crossover will conclude on Tuesday, Jan. 14 in Arrow at 8 p.m. ET/PT and in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
