New Trailer For SyFy's Krypton

Krypton Trailer Introduces Adam Strange And 'DC Science Fiction Universe'

Syfy's Krypton, the much-anticipated Superman prequel set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel's home planet, will follow Superman's grandfather - whose House of El was ostracized and shamed - as he fights to redeem his family's honor and save his beloved world from chaos. The trailer also reveals the presence of time-traveler Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos), who shows up to tell Seg-El all about his famous grandson.

News of Adam's addition to the show surprised a lot of fans, as the character isn't really part of the Superman canon.

And while Krypton is not associated with any of the DC shows in Greg Berlanti's Arrowverse (which means no crossovers with the Legends of Tomorrow), it sounds like there will still be ample opportunities for other DC cameos. With Krypton's leadership in disarray and the House of El ostracized, Seg finds himself in a hard position. "The time travel element does give us some unpredictability and some creative license to do some stories you don't know or stories that play out differently than what people might assume".

Okay, so it's not actually an old man flying around trying to get supervillains off his lawn, but it does tell the tale of the Man of Steel's grandpappy Seg-El, played by Cameron Cuffe, back on Krypton centuries before the birth of his famous grandson. The good news for them is that the producers repeatedly said "the door is open" for other characters to show up, Superman included, and they've previously confirmed Hawkgirl and Doomsday will show up in some form or another.

"There's freedom there too", said DC boss and executive producer Geoff Johns. We get to explore every corner of the mythology.

"Yeah, we have freedom too, we can do our own iteration of Doomsday untethered to anything else", Johns said. So it's possible that with all these time travel shenanigans, the story of Krypton is about how it avoids its imminent destruction. "It's this gateway into the DC science fiction universe", Goyer says. "Even the inclusion of Adam Strange, that should to tip you off that it's not just going to be set on Krypton".

The series will premiere on SYFY March 21. Krypton will be produced by Warner Horizon Television and is based on characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, published by DC Comics.
