New Description Of The San Diego Comic-Con KRYPTON Trailer Surfaces Online

Syfy and Warner Brothers Television premiered a new trailer for their Superman prequel series, Krypton, last night at San Diego Comic-Con, and a description of the footage has now popped up online.

David Goyer's Krypton series has raised more questions than it's answered at this particular point in time, most of which surround the continuity of the series and whether it will be part of the framework of the DCEU that Man Of Steel set up, or if it will be its own thing.

Last night a trailer for the show premiered at the San Diego Comic-Con preview night, and Collider was there to relay back a description:


The trailer begins with majestic and interplanetary imagery and a narration from Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), grandfather of Kal-El, a.k.a. Superman.

“Kal-El, my future grandson. I know you will fight to save your world, just as I fought to save mine,” he says over clips which feature other cast members including Ann Ogbomo‘s Alura Zod, Georgina Campbell‘s Lyta Zod, and Ian McElhinney‘s Val-El, Seg’s grandfather, who reminds him not to forget the name of his family. There’s even a person with multiple golden faces seen in the reel, implying that we will see any number of interesting and strange creatures on the doomed planet Krypton. (Ann Ogbomo may be recognizable to DC fans as she recently played the Amazon Phillipus in Wonder Woman earlier this year.)

While there is some imagery suggesting ties to Man of Steel and the DC cinematic universe, including the design of the “S” which in the films implied hope, there’s also a nod to a previous take on the franchise, as some bars from John Williams‘ classic Superman theme can be heard near the end. Those notes and the trailer itself seemed to elicit a positive response and applause from the audience.
 

It would seem that the show will rely on some of the imagery from Man Of Steel, but also incorporate some elements of classic Superman lore. However, the first image from the show released a while back showed off some subtle changes to the Man of Steel version of the S glyph. So, questions about the show's continuity still remain.

The Krypton panel is slated for Saturday, after which the trailer could possibly be made available online.
