Doomsday TV Spot for “Krypton” Season 2

Syfy has released a new TV spot focusing on Doomsday for Season 2 of “Krypton”.

Zod! Brainiac! Doomsday! Lobo! Seg-El’s enemies are closing in, and the future of his home planet of Krypton has been stolen. Join the fight to take it back when “Krypton” returns to SYFY on June 12.

What if Superman never existed? Set two generations before the destruction of Superman’s home planet, KRYPTON follows Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), the legendary Man of Steel’s grandfather, as a young man who fights to save his home planet from destruction. Season 2 brings us back to a changed Kandor, locked in a battle over its freedom and its future. General Dru-Zod (Colin Salmon) is now in control. He’s on a ruthless mission to rebuild Krypton according to his ideals and to secure its future by conquering the universe. Faced with a bleak outlook, our hero, Seg-El, attempts to unite a dispersed group of resisters in an effort to defeat Zod and restore hope to their beloved planet. Their chance at redemption is threatened however, by their opposing tactics, shifting alliances and conflicting moral boundaries – forcing each of them to individually determine how far they’re willing to go in pursuit of a better tomorrow.

KRYPTON is from Warner Horizon Scripted Television and is executive produced by David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Dark Knight Trilogy) through his Phantom Four banner, alongside Cameron Welsh (Constantine, The Last Ship), who serves as showrunner. Based on the DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the series stars Cameron Cuffe (The Halcyon) as Seg-El, Georgina Campbell (Broadchurch) as Lyta-Zod, Shaun Sipos (The Vampire Diaries) as Adam Strange, Colin Salmon (Arrow) as General Dru-Zod, Ann Ogbomo (World War Z) as Jayna-Zod, Aaron Pierre (Britannia) as Dev-Em, Rasmus Hardiker (Your Highness) as Kem, Wallis Day (Will) as Nyssa-Vex, Blake Ritson (Da Vinci’s Demons) as Brainiac and Ian McElhinney (Game of Thrones) as Val-El.

Haha right? I wish they had gone the Sonic the Hedgehog route and said ‘we’ve heard your complaints! We’re going to redesign him!’

lol!! And the Bay Turtles were basically the ogre version of Fiona from “Shrek” dressed up in lazy turtle cosplay, lol
(though at least the turtles’ personalities remained intact, but that’s a topic for another day.)

Wow. Doomsday looks really good here. I have to ask, of those of you have watched Krypton; how is it? It seemed too gimmicky for me when I saw the initial trailers but have been tempted to give it a spin when I first saw Brainiac and certainly now Doomsday.

I’ve seen some and it’s not bad BUT….why would there be all the same races on Krypton as Earth?? And once again why does it make sense that the baddest posterior kicker is once again a woman??

You mean like racial diversity on Krypton mirroring Earth? I haven’t seen the show at all, but I seem to recall that the modern revisions to Krypton have shown racial diversity that didn’t use to exist in the comics… so it’s probably for the same reason: inclusion – which I’m fine with.

Krypton to greater or lesser extent has always been meant to be an allegory for Earth. A cautionary tale as well as an origin story.

So it only makes sense that a planet meant to be a metaphor for the human world have the full variety of humans in it. That’s… Read more »

Sure, makes sense to me. I don’t know that racial diversity was ever meant to be part of that allegory (as I don’t recall any Kryptonians in the Golden Age being anything other than white) but a modern interpretation is completely apt for tv, movies, and comics.

Doomsday looks great! So we’ve got great depictions of Doomsday, Brainiac, and Lobo. It’s exciting and yet, I’m a little sad that although we’ve got these great accurate depictions of Superman’s characters, in the end it’s still all without Superman himself to interact with them.

Couldn’t have said it better myself GodzillaofSteel. This show definitely makes me want Superman to appear.
