KRYPTON: First Trailer For Syfy's Upcoming Superman Prequel Series Introduces Kal-El's Grandfather

While Syfy hasn't officially ordered Krypton to series, a trailer for the pilot episode has found its way online, with the first bits of footage, and it actually looks pretty cool. Come take a look!

"The blood of House El will always bind us together."

Last we heard, Syfy was taking their planned Superman prequel series Krypton to Serbia to film the pilot episode, which would star relative newcomers Cameron Cuffe and Georgina Campbell in the lead roles as Seg-El and Lyta Zod, respectively.

While the series hasn't officially been ordered by the network just yet, it appears as though the trailer for that recently completed pilot has been released online and it gives us our first real look at the upcoming series, which introduces Kal-El's grandfather and reveals his struggle to redeem his family's honor while also saving his beloved world from unprecedented chaos. The planet also seems to draw visual inspiration from the Krypton seen in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, which probably shouldn't come as a huge surprise as David S. Goyer penned both scripts.

Colm McCarthy (Sherlock) helmed the pilot episode with a script from Goyer and Ian Goldberg.

Check out the first trailer below:


 

Krypton "will follow 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.

Krypton features:
Cameron Cuffe as Seg-El
Georgina Campbell as Lyta Zod
Ian McElhinney as Val-El
Elliot Cowan as Daron-Vex
Ann Ogbomo as Alura Zod
Rasmus Hardiker as Kem
Wallis Day as Nyssa-Vex
Aaron Pierre as Dev-Em

Krypton premieres TBD
