Syfy has high hopes for ‘Krypton‘ and the latest teaser puts the focus on the Man of Steel. Well, on Superman’s cape at least. The teaser has Seg-El walking up to the cape which will one day adorn Clark Kent, but things aren’t quite what they seem. We know that time travel is involved and both the narration and what ends up on screen hints that the phenomenon will factor in quite a bit.
As Seg-El approaches the majestic cape, we get the narration cutting in and when he picks it up? It starts to fade away from the bottom up. Someone is trying to rewrite history to prevent Krypton from surviving as long as it does to shoot the future Superman in a rocket towards Earth:
“This cape belongs to your future grandson. You have to save your world. You have to save your legacy.”
I’m not going to say that this voice is likely to be Adam Strange which we’ll see having journey back in time to let this young Seg-El in the series, but my money is on it being the case. You can check out the trailer right here!
We’ve been teased a multi-season (seven to eight year!) run and meeting a variety of space-based heroes and villains who will be recognized by fans of the comic. Someone is trying to change the past and prevent Superman from ever being born, and it will be up to Seg-El to see that the legacy of his family continues on for a brighter tomorrow.
What do you think of this hint of what is to come for ‘Krypton’? Are you excited to see a time travel adventure without Superman but involving every aspect of his life? Share your thoughts below!
Set two generations before the destruction of Superman’s home planet; KRYPTON follows Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), the legendary Man of Steel’s grandfather — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed. With Krypton’s leadership in disarray, Seg-El encounters Earthly time-traveler Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos) who warns he’s under the clock to save his beloved world from chaos. Fighting to redeem his family’s honor and protect the ones he loves, Seg is also faced with a life and death conflict – save his home planet or let it be destroyed in order to restore the fate of his future grandson.
‘Krypton’ is set to debut on Syfy on March 21st, 2018!
