New 'Krypton' trailer shows Superman's grandfather meeting Adam Strange

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. In a universe of Supermans and Batmans, Strange bends more toward the sci-fi side of heroism, emulating some of the same characteristics vigilantes like Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers possess.

The show, which has been in the works since before 2014, was shot in Europe (mostly in Belfast, Northern Ireland) to differentiate itself from the look of most Vancouver-shot DC shows, according to Johns.

Okay, so it's not actually an old man flying around trying to get supervillains off his lawn, but it does tell the tale of the Man of Steel's grandpappy Seg-El, played by Cameron Cuffe, back on Krypton centuries before the birth of his famous grandson.

"You can tell [from that trailer] that time travel is involved, and what that means is history could be changed, and what happens in this show could be very different from the backstory that people know", executive producer David S. Goyer told reporters at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour Tuesday. It was previously reported that the show may also feature Doomsday and Hawkgirl.

DC CCO Geoff Johns explained the time travel embedded at the series core will give the writers creative license to keep unpredictability high.


"Yeah, we have freedom too, we can do our own iteration of Doomsday untethered to anything else", Johns said. We get to explore every corner of the mythology.

"Someone from the future is coming to destroy Krypton", he says.

"Adam Strange. one of the great things about him is that his core story is that on Earth, he just kind of blends in - he's an average man".

"Specifically, you know the main reason is and this will sound kind of amusing, but there's this, I think when people think of fantasy or science fiction when you think of accents, for whatever reason, the Mid-Atlantic or British accent is the default accent when you're dealing with an alien world". Krypton premieres March 21 on SYFY.

The show also stars Georgina Campbell, Elliot Cowan, Ann Ogbomo, Rasmus Hardiker, Wallis Day, Aaron Pierre, Ian McElhinney, and Shaun Sipos.
