Deadline reports that Georgina Campbell (Murdered by my Boyfriend, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword) has been cast as Lyta Zod in Syfy’s upcoming series centering around events that took place on Krypton one decades before the Planet’s destruction.
While the production process has been steeped in development for several months, this news is sure to rekindle excitement for the project among fans. Details on the character were scarce but the trade did offer this tidbit about the character;
“Lyta Zod is a member of Krypton’s military caste and the daughter of a general — that would be Superman’s future nemesis, General Zod, Lyta Zod serves as a cadet — and has also been having a clandestine, forbidden romance with Seg-El.”
The inclusion of this character in the series is a sign that much creative freedom will taken in this series as these events are largely undocumented in DC Comics canon. No release date has yet been announced for the series co created by Man Of Steel writer David S. Goyer.
Georgina Campbell will next be seen in Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur:Legend Of The Sword alongside Charlie Hunnam which is set to be released on March 24, 2017
