Sometime in March of the upcoming year, DC Comics fans will learn that not every show has to be secured on The CW Network as the pre-history of Superman’s ancestors is presented during the show “Krypton”. It’s going to come care of the SyFy Network and the first teaser trailer was just released. Let’s take a look.
The Premise: According to IGN, Krypton will follow Superman’s grandfather, Seg-El; whose family, the House of El, has been ostracized and shamed. Seg-El fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos.
Cameron Cuffe as Seg-El
Georgina Campbell as Lyta Zod
Ian McElhinney as Val-El
Elliot Cowan as Daron-Vex
Ann Ogbomo as Alura Zod
Rasmus Hardiker as Kem
Wallis Day as Nyssa-Vex
Aaron Pierre as Dev-Em
Shaun Sipos as Adam Strange
Blake Ritson as Vril Dox
Additionally, Seg’s father Ter-El, Doomsday and Hawkgirl will also appear in the television series. Paula Malcomson will appear as Charys.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though we don’t see them in the teaser, perhaps they shall make an appearance in a longer trailer when one comes to light and I am talking about Adam Strange and Vril Dox (who is one of the Braniac clones). I’d be interested in seeing them for sure and their inclusion makes me a little more interested in this DC Comics Pre-history show. Let’s face it, when John Byrne revamped “Superman” so many years ago, he gave us a Krytpton that you wanted to see blown up based on how cold and sterile their populace had become. It wasn’t until the “Man Of Steel” movie that we learned of the assorted castes and how each one would apply to a certain governance in society. It could be interesting, especially if we see other cosmic entities from the DC Universe that would have existed around the planet and its people. Perhaps the Green Lantern Corps, or things along those lines. Anyway, I usually don’t speak to teaser trailers but I am chatty today and the year is heading towards a close. So much is coming our way if you are fan of the comics related TV shows and I think it’s pretty awesome. Until next time.
