Are you excited to see a DC anthology series? Do you hope Adam Strange appears in the series? Comment below!
DC Comics’ Strange Adventures was published in the 1960s and told science fiction tales as an anthology title. Strange Adventures featured the debuts of The Enchantress and Animal Man. Adam Strange is also commonly associated with the Strange Adventures comics. It was rumored that a Adam Strange series was in development for The CW, but it appears this could be what that was referring to.
Adam Strange recently played a big role on the canceled SyFy series, Krypton. Here is the synopsis for that series:
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.
Krypton starred Cameron Cuffe, Blake Ritson, Shaun Sipos, Colin Salmon, Georgina Campbell, Wallis Day, Ann Ogbomo, Aaron Pierre, Hannah Waddingham, Kem, Ian McElhinney, and Emmett J. Scanlan as Lobo. Cameron Welsh was the showrunner.
