New KRYPTON Trailer Teases Adam Strange & Kandor
Stranger things are about to happen on Krypton.
During yesterday's presentation at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, California, Syfy released a new trailer for their upcoming series Krypton, based on lore from the DC Comics character Superman.
The new one-minute trailer opens with a voiceover from Superman's grandfather Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), who says, "The story of my family is one of triumph...and sacrifice. How we lead a revolution against tyranny. And now, it falls on my shoulders to save my world."
We glimpse an unusual space vessel comprised of coils approaching Krypton, then hear the voice of Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos), who hands Seg-El Superman's cape and warns, "Someone from the future is coming to destroy Krypton, because where I'm from, your grandson becomes the greatest hero of the universe."
A cover of "Save Tonight" by Zayde Wølf starts playing, accompanying a montage of fleeting images including Kryptonian military officer Alura Zod (Ann Ogbomo) drawing her weapon on Seg-El's mother Charys (Paula Malcolmson) as Seg-El screams while being restrained by guards.
We also glimpse the House of El's command key, from the Superman movie Man of Steel, and a city inside a purple globe attached to something fibrous, possibly teasing the bottle city of Kandor.
The final shot shows Seg-El inserting the command key into a console, and watching as it activates a huge, spiral gate that leads to another chamber. He resumes his voiceover, remarking, "The story of my family isn't about how we died. It's about how we lived."
