First KRYPTON Pilot Trailer Leaks Online
Is Krypton about to explode onto Syfy?
The first look at the pilot for Syfy's proposed series Krypton, based on lore of the DC Comics character Superman, has been leaked online. The series 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.
The 90-second trailer opens with the voice of Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), Superman's grandfather. "Kal-El," he begins, "my future grandson. By the time you hear these words,
your birthworld will be a distant memory."
"The house of El led a revolution against tyranny," he continues. "The story of your family isn't how we died...but how we lived. I know you will fight to save your world, just as I fought to save mine."
We see Val-El, Seg's grandfather, handing him an access key similar to the one used in the movie Man of Steel. "Find the fortress," says Val-El.
"Your name is El -- Never forget it," remarks another character.
"The blood of House El will always bind us together," remarks Seg-El to Lyta Zod (Georgina Campbell) as he slices his palm with an ornate knife and squeezes his palm, dripping blood onto the access panel.
If picked up to series, Krypton is expected to debut on Syfy sometime in 2017.
