SDCC: New ‘Krypton’ Teaser From SYFY

SYFY released a new teaser for ‘Krypton’ at San Diego Comic-Con International Thursday afternoon.

It’s time to discover the secrets of this lineage. The House of El will be redeemed.

The series is set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet, Krypton follows 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.

Cameron Cuffe stars in the show, produced by David S. Goyer with showrunner Damian Kindler. ‘Krypton’ premieres in 2018 on SYFY.


When the trailer leaked in April we had this to say:
The teaser gives us a first look at the series, and it certainly appears like the show will tie into the DC Extended Universe and Henry Cavill’s interpretation of Superman. The symbol of the House of El is the same as the symbol seen in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman. Krypton is also visually similar to what we saw in Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel. It is of course, entirely possible that instead of being directly connected to the DCEU, the show is simply taking visual inspiration from the movies.

What do you think? Are you excited for a weekly series set on Krypton?
