New “Krypton” Teaser Promo

Syfy has released a short teaser promo for the upcoming “Krypton” TV series.

“Krypton” is set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet. The show follows Seg-El, Superman’s grandfather (played by Cameron Cuffe) – whose House of El was ostracized and shamed. He fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos.

“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 2018 on Syfy.

So two things I have to ask.
1. The cape in this commercial has an s on it. Does that mean Superman will get an s on his cape in future movies?
2. If this show is connected to the current films, will superman’s symbol change to the standard one? I notice that the s on the cape was the standard design.
I understand that time travel might be involved. So even though the story takes place in the past, it’s possible we could see some of superman’s future.

Glad to see that this show’s keeping alive the proud tradition of completely ignoring the very simple and easy-to-remember Kryptonese naming scheme in favor of total inconsistency. And by “glad”, I mean, you know, the other one.

Lifelong Superman fan here – but I have no idea what you mean. Can you clarify?

I’m on board with this … I hope it takes a more serious tone than the current ‘Supergirl’ series, which lost me after the first season. Nothing wrong with the casting – I think Melissa Benoist is great in the role. But that show just isn’t aimed at viewers in my demographic.

Not to say Krypton is un-interesting but we can have a show about Clark before he was Superman. We can have a show about Superman’s cousin. We can have a show about Superman’s grandfather. But we can’t have a show about Superman that features Clark Kent as Superman. wtf.

It baffles me too. There should be a superman show. I’m hoping that we will hear something about a show by the time Superman’s 80th anniversary comes around.

Things will change after the merger with AT&T is completed. Whether that is good change or bad though is anyone’s guess at this point. Time will tell as it always does.

When will the merger with AT&T happen?

It’s currently being blocked by the U.S. Dept. of Justice for antitrust reasons, but I think it eventually goes through; as to when..possibly next year sometime, but it could also fall apart. Lots of variables and unknowns at this point, which will make any decisive executive decisions on this universe unlikely until things clear up.

Given the overall positive response to Tyler Hoechlin’s take on the character, I hope The CW considers bringing him back for a mini-series of some sort showing this Superman’s origins – even if it’s an animated project on CW Seed.

We know the basics, but there are some aspects we don’t know: Are the Kents still around? When did he join the Legion? When did Clark make the decision to become Superman?

But the only problem with a Superman series is that it could overshadow Supergirl.

I think a way you could make Tyler’s Superman series distinct from Supergirl is DO NOT do the usual run through of the origin (unless maybe in flashbacks). Basically, for this show we should be joining our fully functioning Superman already in progress. Not rookie, not a stranger in strange land wondering where he fits into the world figuring out who am I yada yada but a seasoned pro whose been doing the hero thing for a while and is hella good at it! From his appearances on Supergirl know that Clark and Lois are together (but they may not… Read more »

What about a Superman show where he is leading and teaching a younger generation of heroes? It could be like every episode he teaches each student how to use their powers. Maybe we would get flash backs of when he was learning to use each of his superpowers.
It would be great to see Superman as a leader and teacher in my opinion.

You know how it is; the studios don’t want their movie and TV properties crossing over to either. If it happens, it’s incidental, like with Smallville and Superman Returns or now with Gustin and Miller’s Flash. I never quite understood why, but they seem to believe it will confuse audiences or whatever. Even for Supergirl, Warner had to back down and “loan” Superman to them for only a handful of episodes. It’s why we haven’t seen Batman on TV since the Adam West show. If Superman hadn’t been in movie development hell since the mid-80s and up to 2006, we… Read more »

They could do like the Comics before Rebirth where we discovered that Pre-52 Superman was around and active just in the shadows. They could just write that Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman have all been active in this world but chose not to go public because of the actions of Barry as the Flash and Ollie as the Arrow.

They could introduce them with something that they absolutely could not ignore. either Brainiac attacking and stealing a city or Mongul and Warworld attacking.

Does fox’s Gotham count for young Bruce Wayne as a tv Batman? I know he’s still a kid, but he’s starting to wear gear similar to batman’s. If it does, cool. If not, I guess we will just have to wait till they decide to make a tv version of batman.

Well that’s basically a does Smallville count as Superman type of question as both shows are very married to the premise of them being what happens “before” (even though they’ll throw in everything and the kitchen sink from what’s supposed to happen “after”). They probably have a “no car, no cowl” policy which is why Bruce Wayne is so much younger than anyone he will face in his prime to ensure they never have to actually make him Batman.

It’s kinda funny really. I heard that before Smallville they had planned a Bruce Wayne/Batman origin show, but then they changed it to the Clark Kent/Superman origin show Smallville. Yet years later, the origin series of batman was still made. I sort of wonder what it would’ve been like if both Smallville and Gotham were airing at the same time. Would there’ve been a crossover at some point? Granted it would’ve been a different actor playing Bruce Wayne since this current one is much younger than Tom Welling. He’s still a teenager while Tom is about 40 I think. I… Read more »
