DC Prequel Series Krypton Conjures Up First Trailer Featuring Kal-El’s Grandfather

While the future slate for DC's movies remains up-in-the-air, its TV roster continues to thrive. The studio's latest show is Krypton, which as the title suggests takes a look at life on Superman's home planet before its destruction. A first teaser has been released--watch it at moviepilot.com.

Krypton is executively produced by David Goyer, who has plenty of experience with DC's superheroes. He co-wrote both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Man of Steel, as well as Christopher Nolan's Batman movies and the Constantine TV show.
The synopsis reads: "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 show stars newcomer Cameron Cuffe as Seg-El, the grandfather of Superman. It also features Georgina Campbell (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword), Ian McElhinney (Star Wars: Rogue One), and Ann Ogbomo (World War Z).
Goyer first spoke about Krypton in 2015, where he described his plans for the show. "In terms of production value, you have to pick your moments," he told Collider. "Should we make the show, there will definitely be some big moments. It won't be wall to wall visual effects every single moment, and we'll also be digging into the characters and the culture a lot more."
Krypton doesn't currently have a confirmed premiere date, but it is expected later in 2017.
The deluge of DC-related TV series shows no sign of letting up, and later this year, Syfy’s prequel drama Krypton will be the latest to enter the fray.
From The Flash to ArrowLegends of Tomorrow to Vixen, the roster of DC shows currently populating the small screen is a crowded one, but Krypton takes one giant leap beyond the Arrowverse to focus on Seg-El, the mythic grandfather to the Man of Steel. Produced by scribe David Goyer (The Dark KnightMan of Steel), Syfy is still holding fire on an official series order for Krypton, and it’s worth noting that the teaser above is merely an extended promo for the fantastical pilot episode.
The illustrious House of El has fallen on hard times, it seems – ostracized and shamed, the DC prequel series will follow Seg-El as he “fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos.” Kryptonian society is in a state of disarray, there are sweeping shots of a scorched planet and, following the apparent execution of a close family member, our protagonist sets off in search of the fabled Fortress.
Newcomer Cameron Cuffe will take point as the Man of Steel’s old, old man, headlining a cast comprised of Georgina Campbell (Lyta Zod), Ian McElhinney (Val-El), Elliot Cowan (Daron-Vex), Ann Ogbomo (Alura Zod), Rasmus Hardiker (Kem), Wallis Day (Nyssa-Vex) and, finally, Aaron Pierre as Dev-Em.
Krypton is on target for a fall premiere via Syfy. We’ll keep you posted if and when the network nails down a specific due date but for the time being, you can share your knee-jerk reactions to this mythic trailer via the comments section below.
