Just in case you happened to have forgotten (even though we’ve reported it here) but yes the Superman prequel “Krypton” is still happening on the SYFY network and we have more casting news.
This is coming from Deadline.com
Deadline is reporting that
Ray Donovan alumna Paula Malcomsonhas been tapped for a pivotal guest-starring role and Blake Ritson (Da Vinci’s Demons) has been cast as a series regular (and a villain) in Syfy’s Superman prequel seriesKrypton, set for premiere in 2018.
Based on DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Krypton is set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet. It follows Superman’s grandfather (Cameron Cuffe) — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos.
Malcomson will play Charys, the matriarch of House El. Charys helps her son Seg navigate the treacherous pitfalls of Kandor City, their Kryptonian home embattled with oppression and revolt. The role has been recast after the pilot.
Ritson will play Brainiac. A parasitic, hyper-advanced alien android of immense intelligence, Brainiac is one of Superman’s oldest and most dangerous foes.
In addition to Cuffe, the show also stars Georgina Campbell, Elliot Cowan, Ann Ogbomo, Rasmus Hardiker, Wallis Day, Aaron Pierre and Ian McElhinney.
The series hails from Warner Horizon Scripted Television and is executive produced by David S. Goyer through his Phantom Four banner. Cameron Welsh serves as executive producer and showrunner.

Oh yeah, and it’s set 2 generations before Kal-El is born. Today we got the trailer for Krypton and we have to ask the question: why? The series is set to cover the life and times of Superman’s grandfather, a character people were just dying to know about (sarcasm, intended.)
Of course, the powers that Superman has on Earth are largely due to the effect of the sun’s rays and Earths’ gravity, which means the Kryptonians on Krypton are essentially no more powered than the average earthling. Are we sensing another Caprica-type bomb for SyFy? David Goyer is behind this, so we’d hope not, but we’ll have to wait and see, when it premieres later this year.
