Krypton begins filming today… and will star Cameron Cuffe as superman’s grandad

The Superman prequel series Krypton, taking palce two generations before Kal-el is born, has gone before the cameras… or at least it will at some point today.

Georgina Campbell, who plays Lyta Zod took to Twitter last night (below – sorry we missed it until now) to annoucne the beginning of filming.

On top of that, British actor Cameron Cuffe has landed the lead role of Seg-El, “the scion of the once prosperous El family who is blessed with an intuitive brilliance for all things technical; he is now living in Krypton’s lowest caste after his family was stripped of its rank. Thus far, Syfy has only ordered a pilot for Krypton.”

He also happens to be Superman, Kal-El’s grandfather.

We still don’t know what to expect from the show… but, as always, we remain optimistic.

Krypton is a Syfy series created by David S,. Goyer (Man of Steel) and Damian Kindler (Sleepy Hollow), with the pilot written by David S. Goyer and Ian Goldberg (Once Upon A Time) and will be directed by Colm McCarthy.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
