SyFy’s highly anticipated action-drama Krypton will be taking Superman fans to the superhero’s home-planet. The titular planet will be the main setting of the series, unlike any other adaptation of Superman movie or shows.
Entertainment publication Entertainment Weekly has released a few images giving a glimpse at the planet Krypton and its people. The images acquaint fans with the life of Kryptonites. The pictures give a good look at Superman’s Fortress of Solitude, which has often featured in other Superman adaptations. Fans know that it a place of great importance for House of El, as it serves as a place where they sought solitude and treated it as an inventory. Its location remains unknown for even the closest family and friends.
Also, the pictures show Krypton’s military base Fort Rozz and its war room, Seg’s apartment, Kem’s bar and the Guild area corridor.
“We were trying to create a world that was believable,” the production designer Ondrej Nekvasil told EW. “The key thing is that on Krypton, all of the people on Krypton look like people on Earth. So, the scale of the set and the scale of the spaces have to be similar to what we know because the people live there.”
“Because life on the planet is kind of tough, they don’t do designs. If they make something, it’s because they use it and they would like to use it for life. It’s not because they would like to design something. We were trying to stay away from the over-design, over-dressed rooms. We were trying to show that everything has some kind of practical reason for why it’s there,” he added.
The Superman prequel tells the events that took place 200 years before Man of Steel’s birth. It focuses on Superman’s grandfather Seg El’s struggle to restore the honor of House of El and save his planet from destruction.
Krypton is developed by David S. Goyer and Damian Kindler. Based on DC Comics, the series stars Cameron Cuffe as Seg El, Georgina Campbell as Lyta Zod, Ian McElhinney as Val-El (Seg’s grandfather), Elliot Cowan as Daron Vex, Ann Ogbomo as Alura Zod, Rasmus Hardiker as Kem, Wallis Day as Nyssa Vex, and Aaron Pierre as Dev-Em. As per the previous report, Doomsday and Hawkgirl are also expected to make an appearance on the show. It is scheduled to release on March 21 on SyFy.
