PostSubject: Krypton TV series teased   Wed May 18, 2016 11:26 pm

Unfortunately, it's not online to view, but at the NBC Universal Upfront event today, a teaser was shown for Syfy's Superman prequel, Krypton.

This is notable for a couple of reasons: One, Krypton only just had a pilot ordered, so showing a teaser seems to indicate Syfy is fairly confident the project is going to series. Second… Well, Krypton only just had a pilot ordered, so there was clearly no actual footage to show. But given the circumstances, what was shown was more than you might expect.

The teaser begins in space, and we see the familiar House of El "S" symbol, backed by green. As the camera continues through space, a voice over begins to ask what remains when a civilization dies, pondering if their art and culture are remembered after it’s all gone. As we hear these words, it becomes clear we are flying through the debris from Krypton after it has blown up. We see some green rocks, indicating Kryptonite, hurtling past.

As the camera speeds up through space, we hear the voice over note that while the death of a civilization means great loss, “This is not the story of how our world died. This is the story of how we lived.”

We then see a quick montage of images set on Krypton, which seemed to be taken from the early scenes in Man of Steel, including some of the creatures seen in that film. We also see a couple of Kryptonian characters facing off (a man and woman), in what looks to be footage shot just for the teaser – no one has been cast in the pilot as yet, so these are likely not all indicative of how the final characters will look or who will play them.

The teaser ended saying Krypton is coming in 2017. Again, a more than promising thing to say about a show not yet officially ordered beyond producing a pilot.

So far, Syfy have yet to put the teaser online and may not – the Upfront event is aimed specifically at advertisers to entice them to buy ads on the various networks’ shows and Syfy likely simply wanted to get some pre-hype going on Krypton within this group before they truly unveil it next year.

Per Syfy, Krypton 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.

David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, Man of Steel, Batman v Superman) co-wrote the pilot with Ian Goldberg (Once Upon a Time, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles).

Not sure why I would care seeing a show about Superman's grandfather?
