DC Comics’ latest TV Series – Krypton – has been building tremendous hype since it was announced, especially for DCTV fans and in particular, Superman fans. The series revolves around Seg-El (played by Cameron Cuffe) and acts as a prequel to the story of the Kryptonian we all know and love – Kal-El. For those that aren’t familiar with that name, Seg-El is Superman’s grandfather, and the plot of the story will revolve around the House of El family, which I am extremely excited to see more of.
Since it’s announcement, we have seen a teaser trailer and character posters, which include the infamous villain of Superman – Brainiac. Who I must say, looks incredible and extremely comic accurate.
We have also seen Superman’s cape within the teaser trailer which acts as a huge Easter egg for the show! It suggests that there will be some sort of time-travelling/jumping, which could lead to more Superman homages and references. This leads me to think that Seg-El will be fighting to protect his future Grandson, Kal-El.
In the latest announcement, the cast of Krypton have released and shared that there will be a reprint of the first issue of the comic series “World of Krypton” released in 1987.
I’ve been picking up new comics every Wednesday for years. I never in my wildest dreams thought that one day I’d see my face on one. This is the coolest thing ever.
