Before Kal-El was even a twinkle in his father Jor-El’s eye there was the planet Krypton. And before we get to Jor-El we have the story of Seg-El, Jor-El’s father and the grand pappy of the Man of Steel. Seg-El is in his twenties with the house of El ostracized from society who in the face of this still fights for his planet. March 21st is when you’re going to be able to finally see this series set to debut on Syfy. Now I have made jokes that this is going to be like watching the Titanic movie but with the time set so far from the destruction of Krypton, sorry for the spoilers, I think there’s an opportunity for some original story telling and maybe appearances from other space faring DC properties. I’m always wanting more Green Lantern.
Official synopsis “Krypton follows Superman’s grandfather (Cameron Cuffe) — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos.”
Already we know we’ll see Doomsday, Adam Strange, Braniac, and others but I have to bring up these are just going to be ordinary Kryptonians and unless something happens with some yellow sunlight don’t expect any tall building leaping, faster than speeding bullets, or locomotive overpowering.
Krypton debuts March 21st on SyFy and stars Cameron Cuffe as Seg-El, Georgina Campbell as Lyta Zod, Ian McElhinney as Val-El, Elliot Cowan as Daron-Vex, and Ann Ogbomo as Alura Zod.
