One of the new shows Warner Bros. Television will be unveiling at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con is the series Krypton. The Syfy series focuses on the early days of Superman’s home world before it blew up and he was sent to Earth. There will be a video presentation and Q&A from 1:15 to 1:45 p.m. in the Indigo Ballroom.
The synopsis reads:
“Set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet, Krypton follows Superman’s grandfather (Cameron Cuffe) — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos. Join series star Cameron Cuffe (The Halcyon, Florence Foster Jenkins) and executive producers Damian Kindler (Sleepy Hollow) and Cameron Welsh (Ash vs Evil Dead, Constantine) for a sneak peek at the upcoming series followed by an out-of-this-world Q&A. Based on DC characters, Krypton is from Warner Horizon Scripted Television and is executive produced by David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Dark Knighttrilogy) through his Phantom Four banner, along with Damian Kindler and Cameron Welsh.”
Krypton is based on characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, published by DC, and will debut in 2018 on Syfy.
