Default What should Krypton look like?

Ok... If this "Reboot" ends up being an origin movie, and we (possibly) get to see Krypton in the film, what would you want the planet to look like? An cold ice world like we got in the old movies? An evolved planet similar to Earth? Like in the classic comic books (colorful and bright, with cities filled with art-deco towers?)

If you could choose the type of world you would want Krypton to look like, what type of world would you choose?

I think something like the comic books now. An influence from the Donner films but not as cold.

And I second that...

Byrne's Krypton on the big screen would be amazing.

Maybe even the best science fiction landscape on film since the better Star Wars vistas.

Maybe something like Donner's but above ground. I'd like to see an actual city but an alien city rather than something that could be a futuristic/alternate idea of earth. Make it clear that it's built with completely different materials and architecture that doesn't remind us of anything - That's what was great about Donner's Krypton.

Art-deco all the way, as Joe and Jerry intended it to be.

Yup that sounds about right!

I've always envisioned Krypton as looking similiar to Alderaan. Beautiful scenery mixed with high tech cities.

I wouldn't mind it looking like it did in Birthright.

I definitely don't want it looking remotely like our world, that's for sure. Something very other-wordly, like a techno-organic society.

Just something advanced.

^ What is that from? Looks pretty cool, but I don't think it would work for Krypton.


Anyways, I agree with going completely Art Deco....... and completely, totally different from Donner's. Like I've said so many times in all of these threads.... I'll say it until I'm blue in the face.... EVERYTHING needs to be different if this is going to be a true reboot.

It's from Star Wars - featured most heavily in The Phantom Menace.

I imagine it as a paradise, utopian and beautiful, though it might have different types of terrain/climate like Earth rather than a uniform appearance all over. I imagine it became a barren icy world after some kind of disaster or because of something to do with the changing sun.

In terms of aesthetics I'd like a balance between golden/silver age krypton and Byrne's krypton. In terms of characterization of residents and planet history I'd like them to draw from the post-Infinite Crisis take on krypton. Non being Jor-El's lobotomized former mentor kicks ass among other things.

I just read The Last Days of Krypton by Kevin J. Anderson. he takes elements from Gold, Silver, and Modern Eras, as well as Donner's crystal idea. It all flows together very nicely, and could work on film.

If Superman: Birthright is used as an influence or the film is adapted from it, then I see that Krypton is full of highly futuristic technology that is practically all hologram computer interfaced. Bryne's imagining combined with something like that could work.

I love Naboo, but just not for Krypton. Like I said, Alderaan is pretty much what I was thinking.
