"Krypton" - More To The Legend

Take a look at more new images, plus footage from "Krypton", based on the DC Comics characters, debuting March 21, 2018 on Syfy:

"...what if  'Superman' never existed? Set two generations before the destruction of Superman's home planet, 'Krypton' follows 'Seg-El' (Cameron Cuffe), the legendary Man of Steel's grandfather, who is faced with a life and death conflict -- save his home planet or let it be destroyed in order to restore the fate of his grandson.

"With Krypton's leadership in disarray and the 'House of El' ostracized, Seg finds himself in a difficult position. 

"He must redeem his family's honor and protect the ones he loves...

"...while being challenged by familiar DC characters 'Brainiac' (Blake Ritson) and Earthly time-traveler 'Adam Strange' (Shaun Sipos)..."

DC Comics' 'Adam Strange',  was originally an archeologist suddenly teleported from Peru to the planet 'Rann' through a 'Zeta-Beam'.

"Upon his arrival, he is attacked by one of the planet's predators and rescued by a woman called 'Alanna'. 

"She takes him to her father 'Sardath' who explains that the Zeta-Beam was transmitted at Earth in the hopes that whatever form of intelligent life lived there would trace it back to Rann...

"...theorizing that in the 4.3 years it takes the Zeta-Beam to reach earth, it was altered by space radiation into a transportation beam. 

"Called on to protect the planet from extraterrestrial threats using Rann's technology, Strange grew to care for the planet and its inhabitants, especially Alanna. 

"Eventually, the effects of the beam wore off, automatically returning Strange to Earth at the exact point of departure...

"...but not before Sardath had given him a schedule of beam firings allowing him to periodically return to the planet. 

"Using mathematical calculations, he was able to determine the exact time and the precise locations at which the Zeta-Beams would arrive, traveling the world and intercepting them, to be with Alanna..."

"Krypton" cast also includes Georgina Campbell as 'Lyta Zod', Ian McElhinney as 'Val-El', Elliot Cowan as 'Daron-Vex', Ann Ogbomo as 'Alura Zod', Rasmus Hardiker as 'Kem', Wallis Day as 'Nyssa-Vex' and Aaron Pierre as 'Dev-Em'.
