(NOTE – it seems that the trailer was pulled before we had a chance to publish this article, but we will be sure to update the article with the full trailer as soon as it is available for online viewing.)
On Tuesday it seems that the first trailer for Syfy’s ‘Krypton’ was leaked online via the Vimeo video service, and many assumed it was indeed the final product due to the polished nature of the product and effects. However, due to the fact that the trailer was pulled within a day of it being leaked, it now seems that it was not quite ready for public viewing just yet, but for those who did get to view it, we were able to find it thanks to the Twitter account Comic Book Debate!
The leaked trailer gives audiences their first taste of the new series. The first impression on a lot of folks, aside from the pointed questions about whether we need yet another prologue DC show that never actually features the hero whose backstory this all is (I’m looking at you ‘Gotham’), is the impressive special effects of the series, which is a far cry from the Sci-Fi Channel movies and TV shows (note the old spelling) of the 1990s and early 2000s. And with the entire series taking place on Krypton a few generations before Superman, at least the sense of impending doom does not seem as important a factor (for now at least) than if the show was all about Superman’s father.

Syfy’s Krypton, the much-anticipated Superman prequel set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet, 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 will be executive produced by David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Dark Knight trilogy) through his Phantom Four banner. Damian Kindler (Sleepy Hollow) will serve as executive producer/showrunner; Colm McCarthy (She Who Brings Gifts, Peaky Blinders) is set to direct and co-executive produce the pilot. The pilot teleplay and story is written by David S. Goyer & Ian Goldberg (Once Upon a Time, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles). Krypton will be produced by Warner Horizon Television and is based on characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, published by DC Comics.
