Other than a few brief teasers, we haven’t seen much of SyFy and DC Entertainment’s upcoming Superman prequel, Krypton. With that said, a brand new behind-the-scenes featurette gives us a great fresh look at the show and introduces the first look at Blake Ritson (RocknRolla) as the DC Comics villain, Brainiac.
The video, which was released by USA Today also features interviews with Executive Producer David S. Goyer, star Cameron Cuffe, and DC Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer and President Geoff Johns, who each discuss Brainiac’s important role in the Superman prequel.
Check out the featurette below:
As a character, Brainiac is arguably one of the most interesting and compelling villains in DC Comics history. As you can see, the creators of Krypton have kept fairly close to Brainiac’s comic-book appearance. Although I’m still sceptical about the Krypton series, I’ll admit that everything we’re seeing from the show looks incredible. From visual effects to makeup, the style of the show looks more impressive than previous DC Comics shows like Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl.

Syfy’s Krypton, the much-anticipated Superman prequel set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet, will follow Superman’s grandfather — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honour and save his beloved world from chaos.
Krypton will be executive produced by David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Dark Knight trilogy) through his Phantom Four banner. Damian Kindler (Sleepy Hollow) will serve as executive producer/showrunner; Colm McCarthy (She Who Brings Gifts, Peaky Blinders) is set to direct and co-executive produce the pilot. The pilot teleplay and story is written by David S. Goyer & Ian Goldberg (Once Upon a Time, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles). Krypton will be produced by Warner Horizon Television and is based on characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, published by DC Comics.
Kryptin will premiere on SyFy on March 21!
