The latest trailer-


Disappointed that THIS is how most people are going to discover Adam Strange. (Guessing they'll use some stuff from JB’s “The World of Krypton” so.... more free money, JB!!)

-C!

As noted, I am curious to see how DC/Warner pays me on this one.

With Adam Strange from the future as a character, I’d be concerned that this will be like ENTERPRISE and include a lot of the Superman mythos before it actually happens.

I was going to ignore this, but then I saw Georgina Campbell in BLACK MIRROR and might tune in for her.

For crying out loud! Will we in the UK EVER be allowed to see a trailer for this series?

For all the Superman comics I've read over the years, the Krypton-centric stuff usually leaves me cold. Where has Jor-El's father appeared before?

Brian O - Jor-El I was in the 1979 World of Krypton mini-series. I believe he also appeared in "The Sons of Superman" (Superman #166) as a statue. Aside from that... I can't think of anywhere else.

I guess that since "Gotham" is still on the air, apparently with a satisfied audience, somebody thinks that it'll work for Krypton also. But I wonder how much interest it'll generate? 

"Gotham" is ongoing, and while we know what the last episode they're going to show will be, the story will continue. "Krypton" will have a very definite ending, so how much can they cram in?

Then again... I'm not very fond of "Gotham" from what I've seen. Maybe there's plenty of filling for such a sandwich based on Krypton. But I don't think it'll be to my taste...

How much they can "cram in" depends on when they start. My WORLD OF KRYPTON miniseries began thousands of years in the past, and I had room for lots of stuff!

Michael Roberts - thanks. Yes I can see that one.

Not sure what I think now, though

Methinks there is more of the super-model than the Superman about this project. Smallville was bad enough, so if this is going to be more sickeningly good-looking angsty teenagers pouting at one another while discussing their feelings, just on Krypton rather than Earth, then I'm out.
