SYFY unveils Updated Teaser for Prequel Series KRYPTON

Yes, it’s true: SYFY is still developing a prequel series that trace the House of El on Krypton long before Kal-El was rocketed to Earth to become Superman.

It seems the series wants to paint Kal as coming from a line of heroes, not just his scientific genius father, Jor-El. So, I guess it’ll be like GOTHAM? (Hopefully, less boring, tho, amirite?)

It’s hard to tell what the series will be like from the teaser, except that it will have chases, martial arts and explosions. Sigh.

The official line from SYFY is: Set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet, KRYPTON follows Superman’s grandfather (Cameron Cuffe, THE HALCYON) — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos. KRYPTON premieres in 2018 on SYFY.

Do you have any interest in watching the adventures of Superman’s grandpa on his home planet? Let me know in the comments section.

It’s Almost Time for More ‘Orphan Black’

“Orphan Black” is gearing up for its fourth season, and BBC America has released a short little teaser for its original series.

What it lacks in length it makes up for in creepiness…

BBC America will only hint:

Season 4 of the drama will see leader-of-the-pack, Sarah, reluctantly return home from her Icelandic hideout to track down an elusive and mysterious ally tied to the clone who started it all — Beth Childs.  Sarah will follow Beth’s footsteps into a dangerous relationship with a potent new enemy, heading in a horrifying new direction. Under constant pressure to protect the sisterhood and keep everyone safe, Sarah’s old habits begin to resurface. As the close-knit sisters are pulled in disparate directions, Sarah finds herself estranged from the loving relationships that changed her for the better.

If Daryl Dies…

Looks like  Daryl (Norman Reedus) having a bad day at the cannibal compound, Terminus….

THE WALKING DEAD returns to AMC in October, as usual.

Lucy Kills This Guy With Style…

While we’re waiting for Scarlett Johansson to return to screens as the Black Widow in next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, we will be able to watch the actress kick butt as a far different character in Luc Besson’s Lucy, coming this August.

I’m wincing a little, because the premise of the movie jumps off from the outdated myth that we only use 10 percent of our brain capacity – and Lucy gains superpowers from unlocking increasing amounts of her cerebral capacity. But, hey, it looks like fun, and Morgan Freeman is in it, playing yet another authority figure, so what’s the harm?

In case you want to see more, here’s the first Lucy trailer.
