Syfy’s new TV show Krypton features the history of Superman’s homeworld from his Grandfathers perspective.
First announced in December of 2014, I’d completely forgotten about this television show that was to tell the tale of Superman’s homeworld of Krypton. The trailer has been removed several times from YouTube, so Syfy obviously didn’t want this reveal to happen just yet.
Krypton has been written by David S. Goyer and he certainly has many comic book film adaptations to his name. These include many big hitters such as the Blade trilogy, The Dark Knight trilogy, Batman v. Superman and the film that inspired this series, Man of Steel.
Set approximately 200 years before Man of Steel, Krypton will tell the tale of a 20-year-old Seg-El, who will later become Superman’s Grandfather.
He and his family are the House of El. Unfortunately, the House of El has been banished and shamed in Kryptonian society.
Seg-El must fight to restore the honour of his house and save his world from chaos. There’s also a forbidden romance with Lyta Zod, a reluctant cadet and warrior in the Kryptonian military.
Krypton will air later this year on Syfy.
