A new trailer has surfaced for the Superman prequel series, Krypton which opens the storyline of what we can come to expect from the home planet of our caped superhero before it was destroyed.
Based on DC Comics characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Krypton is set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet. It follows Superman’s grandfather — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honour and save his beloved world from chaos.
With the House of El in turmoil, it’s down to Seg-El, Kal-El’s grandfather (played by Cameron Cuffe) to help restore the family name. The show will also incorporate a time-travel element when cosmic DC hero Adam Strange is sent from the future to help save the doomed planet.
Show creator and executive producer, David S. Goyer hinted that due to the time-travel that our perception of Superman’s backstory could show some differences in what we thought.
Krypton debuts on Syfy March 21.
