I am liking the look of Krypton, the cities and landscapes, in all these previews.

BTW the above vid is not available in my country, so here's another link in case your country is blocked too:

Wow I'm so pumped. I went from not giving a crap to becoming giddy with excitement.

They mentioned, Doomsday, Mongul, and the Thanagarians!? **** yea! This is not only a Krypton show but a DC cosmic show too.

Hopefully season 2 we'll see some Guardians, New Gods, Czarnians etc.

In the video above, Mongul was mentioned as the Black Mercy will be appearing in the pilot with Mongul possibly appearing down the line. Starts at 17:30.

That Making of Krypton Special got me even more excited for the series!

Oy, I may have to get past my Goyer hate for this. There's just too much geeky goodness in there for me to ignore at this point, lol. At least he's not the showrunner, so I can have a glimmer of hope it might actually be decent.

I'm beyond excited about Krypton. That behind the scenes special was fantastic. I love that they mentioned incorporating Brainiac, Doomsday, the Black Mercy, possibly Mongul, Thanagarians, and there have previously been hints at Lanterns. Also the time travel aspect with Adam Strange opens up a lot of expanding of the lore witj even more DC comics characters. Wouldn't surprise me to see the Legion at some point down the line if the show is successful, in later seasons maybe even Superman. It's all very exciting as a DC fan.

Has there been any mention of Adam Strange wearing a costume?

I remain wary, but Syfy has been putting out enough good **** for me to try it out.

Another review saying it has potential but taking its time to find its footing:

http://deadline.com/2018/03/krypton-...sh-1202342388/

I hope that if the show does need time to evolve and figure out its direction it will be given the opportunity to do so.

Well to be fair, Goyer's usual brand of self-seriousness is generally pretty cringey, imo.

Well I'm guessing now that Ava is doing New Gods the chance's of seeing them in Krypton has diminished. Although I'm not ruling out a character share.
I'd be settle for a rouge parademon invasion.
