Syfy’s new series Krypton takes a look at Superman’s home planet two centuries before the iconic superhero was even born. Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe) is Kal-El’s grandfather, making him Jor-El’s dad. While the house of El feuds with houses of Zod and Val, time traveler Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos) comes from the future to warn Seg that he has to persevere to ensure that Superman is born.

Man of Steel screenwriter David Goyer created Krypton, but Cameron Welsh is the showrunner. Welsh worked for Goyer on his Constantine series and had developed another show with Goyer. Welsh spoke with /Film by phone last week and there are some mild spoilers for the pilot in the discussion.

Krypton premieres Wednesday, March 21 on Syfy.

Now the network has released a new trailer, and you can judge for yourselves below.

(This post contains immediate and major spoilers for The Walking Dead.)

Carl Grimes is dead. In all the seasons of The Walking Dead so far, I don’t think anyone would have guessed that one of the zombie apocalypse’s casualties would be Carl, one of the show’s original and longest-running characters. For many fans, a show without Carl is like a show without his dad,  Rick – it just wouldn’t be The Walking Dead. It would be a completely different show that didn’t sign up for.

You would think the creative team behind The Walking Dead would respect that. But instead, they have thrown caution to the wind and committed one of the most asinine decisions in the show’s history. They killed Carl. What’s even worse, they killed him without any ascertainable reason.
