‘Krypton’ Showrunner on Reinventing Superman’s Home Planet and Bringing Brainiac to Live Action [Interview]

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.
