CBTVB: SyFy’s Krypton TV Show Trailer Leaks
By Muuka Muyumba
Hat tip to Charlie at Emergency Awesome, but it look like DC Entertainment has removed the leaked teaser trailer for the upcoming Krypton series from Syfy. As made clear by the trailer, this is the story of the Romeo and Juliet of Superman’s grandpa, Seyg-El and his star-crossed love affair with a member of the House of Zod, Lyta.
What surprised me was just how heavily the series appears to draw from the Krypton that David Goyer and Zack Snyder created in Man of Steel. In that movie, we saw a much more space-operatic environment with indigenous animals and Kryptonian class structure.
The trailer highlights the romance, but doesn’t show a clear indication of the story of the series like whether there is a fight about the environmental future of the planet. The story may center around the fight that we saw later in Goyer’s Man of Steel. Seyg-El’s son Jor-El wanted to believe in destiny, and had his son Kal-El naturally rather than genetically engineered by the Kryptonian relic The Kodex.
The trailer also notes that the series is due to come out in 2017, but reports are that Krypton won’t hit the channel until 2018. The series stars Georgina Campbell as Lyta, Ian McElhinney as Val-El, Elliot Cowan as Daron-Vex, and Ann Ogbomo as Alura Zod.
