While we already have a Gotham TV Series, we’ve known for a while that a Krypton series was coming too (here) from Syfy and David S Goyer.
And now, bringing it a step closer to happening, we have our first main cast member and a distant relative of one of Superman’s classic enemies Zod, is Murdered By My Boyfriend star, British actress Georgina Campbell (below) who has been cast as Lyta Zod.
Krypton is set two generations before the planet’s eventual explosive end and will follow Superman – Kal-El’s – grandfather Seg-El — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed.
According to Deadline: “Campbell’s Lyta Zod is a member of Krypton’s military caste and the daughter of a general, Alura Zod. Lyta Zod serves as a cadet — and has also been having a clandestine, forbidden romance with Seg-El (not cast yet).”
While we’ll certainly be watching the development with interest and we’ll watch the show for sure, it’s hard to be excited for it at this stage, but as always, we really hope it delivers the goods.
