Default Re: What should Krypton look like?

I'd like to see a totally different, radical approach taken for visualizing krypton. Nix the idea of kryptonians looking like headband wearing, cloak draped humans. Superman comes from an alien planet, so I'd like to see an alien planet, along with a species that shares only specific similarities with humans....looks not being one of them.

If not this idea, then Bryne's krypton could be cool.

Krypton IS Earth-turned-Paradise! Kryptonians are basically advanced humans!

That's actually not bad at all. A little bit brighter and it would fit.

Krypton should look like a planet that goes boom...eventually.

...Why does it have to be? There are more creative possibilities then just assuming Superman's home planet is exactly like Earth's. It's too earth centric in my opinion. I want to see something different while retaining the key elements. Jor-el knows that the planet will explode and he sends his only son to earth to save him. Those are the only narrative contstraints. The rest is details.

Mark Goerner designs are ideal.

Is that from Superman Lives or something like Flyby? It looks awesome.

Looks too busy IMO. I'd like something less Coruscant/metropolis-like and more Naboo-like, more vibrant, harmonic and peaceful. At least Kandor should appear like this.

But that doesn't look advanced at all to me. Krypton should look very advanced, IMO.

Ok, but the Goerner-stuff is just too cold and futuristic IMO. And not very spectacular/exiting/original.
It should look advanced without looking too fituristic or manmade. Something equal to the Donner-Krypton.

Krypton should look futuristic because they are so more advance then us. I mean it has to look some what futuristic because they were able to send Superman here. All you have to do is brighten it up a little bit and that is really how Krypton IMO should look. What Donner had was cold looking although I liked; it was still cold looking. This is more a long the lines of Birthright and Man of Steel.

Krypton should look futuristic. But i want to see more to it than just the capital city. The other landscapes would look more beautiful and elegant.

I wouldn't mind seeing what Goerner did as the capital city where the counsel takes place and all or make it into Kandor but for where Jor-el and Lara live I would like it to be outside the city and more beautiful and elegant.

Yes. That would be nice to see. Something like TAS.

Superman is the Man of Tomorrow. Not the Alien of Tomorrow.
