Krypton Trailer...Plus Brainiac

So apparently the plot is that Brainiac comes back from the future to blow up Krypton to stop Superman from being born or something?

The visuals are fucking amazing though.

Who the fuck is the guy talking to Superman's grandfather supposed to be? Rip Hunter?

I think that's supposed to be Adam Strange. No idea on why he looks like a hobo, though.

Well, at least it has a decent budget. Other than that it looks pretty bland. Goyer didn't write a decent script in over a decade, so this will probably be bad.

Looks alright in the costuming and effects budget, but since it's set on Krypton, that means no powers.. and from the sounds of it, they might be setting up some awkward "fighting back against fascism" plotline. Might just be my paranoia with these things, but production on shows like this often take a year or two, which puts the writers right in the perfect timeframe to think that making a shitty political allegory that tacitly glorifies antifa would be a brilliant idea.

What's wrong with fighting evil Kryptonian Nationalists?

Not necessarily, they might do a subplot about exploring the effect of different suns on kryptonian physiology. They've got Brainiac and Adam Strange in there so they're clearly not going to limit themselves when it comes to that department.

Honestly, I find it odd they chose Kal El's grandfather as the focus. Jor El I can get but the grandfather? Really?

Set up for Zod taking over for a 2nd season, most likely.

So they can milk it out until they actually have to touch legitimate canon, obviously.

They've cast/confirmed:
<Zod family (probably the General's parents)
<Adam Strange
<Brainiac (cast as Vril Dox, so maybe we get evil giant spaceship and some humanoid version from the past)
<Doomsday
<Hawkgirl
Considering Strange and Hawkgirl appear, it's safe to say is correct.

inb4 it's just a shitty drama show with aliens
There's been so many cast as random Kryptonians that it feels that's how it will go.

Well they did say that it's going to have Superman's grandpa shacking up with a Zod girl in a Romeo/Juliet-type romance, so…

Adam Strange
Weird choice, instead of fucking around on the planet Rann via zeta beams, he's been time traveled to Krypton past to stop Superman from being killed? Were they not willing to use Booster Gold? Have they ran out of other time traveling characters?
I think the only good you could get out of having Strange on Krypton would be to use his jetpack and have a you will believe a man can fly type moment.

He doesn't even look like Adam Strange, he looks like a homeless guy off the street. It kinda makes me worried about the designs for everyone else like Brainiac, Hawkman, Doomsday, etc.

Were they not willing to use Booster Gold?
Probably not due to some legal bullshit involving royalties. It's not like Julie Schwartz is around to be paid, as opposed to Dan Jurgens.

trash like Supergirl looking great
trash like Flash which people just watch because Bazinga looking great
Krypton looking great

What the hell is Gotham's excuse?

It wanted to be detective comics but they forgot Slam Bradley

Well, I'll be damned. It doesn't look like complete dog shit.

Hawkgirl
While I welcome Adam Strange, isn't Hawkgirl currently being used in Legends of Tomorrow or whatever the fuck they're called?

I liked smallville. Couldn't give less of a shit about new cape shows.

They dropped her after the first season because everyone thought her and Hawkman were the worst part of the show.

Why does this always happens?

It's pretty rare for shows to actually listen when someone sucks. Look at Felicity in Arrow. I'm glad they did, because the Hawks really weren't very interesting in LoT.

Jeremiah Price

Actually I think the fan pandering in the DC shows tends to ruin everything. It was the fans who made Felicity so big, it was the fans chased her off, it was the fans whining that pressured Katie Cassidy into getting plastic surgery, then kicking her off the show, it was the fans chased Kevin Smith off, man, if the fucking fans knew what they wanted they'd be writing the fucking show themselves, I don't want to see a fucking vote-for-the-ending show, I want to be surprised by a writer with a plan, not bent over a barrel by the lowest common denominator.

That's not listening to the fans, user, that's listening to tumblr.

I agree with you that shows shouldn't be run by fans that don't know what they want but the Hawkman and Hawkgirl were the weakest part of Season 1 of LOT. That and the writing of course.
