Your trip to the planet Krypton has finally been scheduled as the Superman prequel series has finally got its release date. The series, titled Krypton, which is executive produced by David Goyer, previously known for writing The Dark Knight Trilogy and Man of Steel, will premiere March 21.
The release date was shared on the official Twitter handle of the series, with a 9 second long video. In the short teaser video, over the logo of Superman, it is written – ‘There’s more to the Legend’. Set 200 years before the birth of Superman, Krypton will center on his grandfather Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), whose House of El was ostracized and embarrassed, as he fights to bring back his family’s honor and save his planet from chaos.
As Seg-El tries to protect his family’s legacy, he’ll be challenged by DC characters like Brainiac (Blake Ritson) and Earthly time-traveler Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos). The show also stars Elliot Cowan, Ann Ogbomo, Rasmus Hardiker, Wallis Day, Aaron Pierre, and Ian McElhinney.
