The first teaser trailer for Syfy’s upcoming DC Comics drama, Krypton, a Superman prequel series, has been released. The show hasn’t officially been picked up to series yet by SyFy as Krypton currently has a pilot order.
“Years before the Superman legend we know, the House of El was shamed and ostracized. This series follows The Man of Steel’s grandfather as he brings hope and equality to Krypton, turning a planet in disarray into one worthy of giving birth to the greatest Super Hero ever known.”
Syfy’s Krypton, starring Cameron Cuffe (The Halcyon) as Seg-El, Georgina Campbell (After Hours) as Lyta Zod, Ian McElhinney (Game of Thrones) as Val-El, Elliot Cowan (Da Vinci’s Demons) as Daron Vex, Ann Ogbomo (Wonder Woman) as Primus Alura Zod, Rasmus Hardiker (Your Highness) as Kem, Wallis Day (The Royals) as Nyssa Vex and Aaron Pierre (Britannia) as Dev-Em, will premiere in the 2017-2018 TV Season.
The project, which is being produced by Warner Horizon Television, comes from executive producers David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Dark Knight trilogy), Damian Kindler (Sleepy Hollow), Colm McCarthy (Peaky Blinders). Goyer and Ian Goldberg (Once Upon a Time) wrote the pilot which was directed by McCarthy.

10 Defining Quotes From The DC Extended Universe
Earlier this week, we here at Heroic Hollywood gave the 20 defining quotes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not to be outdone, we also wanted to take a look at the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) and some of the best dialogue/monologues within their films that have so far helped shape their cinematic universe.
Now keep in mind, the DCEU is still in its sophomoric phase. There are only three films in the can — Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad — so we’re going to try our best and refrain from the usual “Marvel vs DC” trope. The films in the DC Extended Universe have their share of highlights and great moments that do a great job at bringing some of our all-time favorite comic book characters to the big screen (and even introducing us to new ones). This list will be strictly for the DCEU, and not feature unconnected films or DC TV shows (Sorry animated movies, Nolan-verse, Arrow-verse and Gotham, maybe we’ll take a look at those as well).
Here are a few of the top DC Extended Universe quotes. Click Next to see…
