New Krypton TV Show Teaser Trailer Focuses on House-El

The House of El and the Fortress of Solitude are featured in a new teaser trailer for Syfy's Krypton, a TV series set on Superman's home planet. DC Comics fans know that the House of El is Superman's biological family.

Developed by David S. Goyer and Damian Kindler, Krypton is a science fiction TV series that takes place two generations before Superman's birth. The show follows the story of Superman's grandfather Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), whose family has been ostracized and shamed. Seg-El will have to redeem the honor of his family while living in a chaotic world suffering from a lack of strong leadership. Seg-El's life will become even more complicated once he encounters Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos), a time-traveler from the future who tells Seg-El that his grandson is destined to become "the greatest hero in the universe".

Over the past few weeks, Syfy has released a number of short teaser trailers for Krypton, highlighting Superman's cape and the House of Zod. Today, Syfy has released a 15-second trailer that focuses on the House of El. We don't get to see much, but we do see Seg-El enter the Fortress of Solitude and cut his hand with a knife. The blood from his hand lights up the Superman emblem with the classic red-and-yellow color scheme. We hear a voice-over that says, "Never forget: The blood of House-El will always bind us together."

The line about the House of El bloodline could have serious connections to the show's plot. We know from the synopsis for Krypton that Seg-El will learn all about his grandson's fate from Adam Strange, which means that Seg-El will also have to come to terms with the knowledge that this planet is doomed to be destroyed. However, a modern-day conspiracy, possibly engineered by Brainiac (Blake Ritson), could change all of that. This conspiracy is designed to prevent the birth of Superman, a goal that could be accomplished by saving Krypton from destruction. This means that Seg-El can let the conspirators change the future and save Krypton, or he can let his homeworld die for the sake of a grandson he never met.

The idea that the blood of House-El binds them together suggests that Seg-El may feel obligated to save his grandson. This blood bond could make Seg-El value Superman as a part of the family, despite the fact that he hasn't even been born yet.
