Starting with Richard Donner's "Superman" in 1978, live-action projects based on DC Comics superheroes have been a part of pop culture, culminating in their dominance of TV today and the gradual expansion of their shared cinematic universe. This season alone, "Flash," "Arrow," "Supergirl" and "Legends of Tomorrow" will air on television while "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and "Suicide Squad" prepare to dominate 2016's box office. With all these DC properties going on at once, YouTube channel UltraSargent has taken the next logical step and made a fan trailer for a film based on the multiverse-smashing 1985 storyline, "Crisis on Infinite Earths."
The clip's framing device comes from the CW series "The Flash," which actually looks right at home next to footage from the "Batman v Superman" trailer. The video then amps up the multiverse angle by showing clips from everything from 1989's "Batman" to Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy up to the "Suicide Squad's" sizzle reel. The scope in this thing is large; can you spot all the shows and movies it pulls from?
