Look, I’m just going to be straight-up here: I do not watch Krypton, but this Season 2 trailer looks absolutely nuts. Syfy revealed this first look today, which also features the advent of the DC villain Lobo (Emmett J. Scanlan) in the series, which follows the story of Superman’s grandfather, Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), and his adventures before Kal-El and, of course, the planet’s destruction.
There certainly seems to be plenty for these characters to contend with in the meantime though, as Zod begins his rise and there are questions of who will bend the knee. But from someone who does watch Krypton, you can read what Vinnie Mancuso had to say about what Syfy’s series can learn from Gotham — another totally insane superhero origin series (well, -ish on Krypton‘s part).
And as for British reggae Lobo, here’s how the character is described per Syfy:
Emmett J. Scanlan plays the newest DC Comics character to join KRYPTON, Lobo. A ruthless bounty hunter, who murdered his entire species, he possesses a genius level intellect when it comes to matters of warfare, making him a deadly adversary. Imbued with superhuman strength, and virtually immortal, Lobo will keep coming until the job is finished. His word is the only thing Lobo holds sacred; and although he’ll never violate the letter of an agreement, he might disregard its spirit from time to time!
Krypton Season 2 will debut June 12th on Syfy; check out the new trailer below:
Here’s the official synopsis for Krypton:
Set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet, Krypton follows 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.
