A trailer for the Syfy TV series titled “Krypton” has been released online.
NOTE: It appears as though the trailer may have leaked online rather than being officially released by Syfy, as the trailer is being removed by the TV network from all sites and video hosting services.
The voice over in the trailer is spoken by Seg-El, who says, “Kal-El, my future grandson, by the time you hear these words your birthworld will be a distant memory. The house of El lead a revolution against tirany. The story of your family isn’t how we died, but how we lived. I know you will fight to save your world just as I fought to save mine.
From Warner Horizon Television and DC Comics, “Krypton” takes place years before the Superman legend we know, when the House of El was shamed and ostracized. This drama follows the Man of Steel’s grandfather as he brings hope and equality to Krypton, turning a planet in disarray into one worthy of giving birth to the greatest Super Hero ever known.
“Krypton” is produced by Warner Horizon Television. The pilot is written by David Goyer (Man of Steel) with Ian Goldberg (Once Upon A Time, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles). Goyer also acts as executive produce through his company Phantom Four with Damian Kindler (Sleepy Hollow), who serves as showrunner. Colm McCarthy (Peaky Blinders) directed the pilot.
The cast includes: Cameron Cuffe (The Halcyon) as Seg-El, Georgina Campbell (After Hours) as Lyta Zod, Ian McElhinney (Game of Thrones) as Val-El, Elliot Cowan (Da Vinci’s Demons) as Daron Vex, Ann Ogbomo (Wonder Woman) as Primus Alura Zod, Rasmus Hardiker (Your Highness) as Kem, Wallis Day (The Royals) as Nyssa Vex and Aaron Pierre (Britannia) as Dev-Em.
“Krypton” will premiere in the 2017-2018 TV season.
