Now that the lid has been popped off and more information have come to light regarding Syfy’s upcoming series Krypton, stars and producers of the show have been more forthcoming about some of the finer details.
Given that they show will focus on Superman’s grandfather Seg-El, it will take place further in the past than the “modern” day DC Universe, but it might also have some superheroes of its own.
When asked point blank by ComicBook.com during San Diego Comic-Con if Krypton's city of Kandor would be home to other heroes, producer Damian Kindler simply responded, “yes.” Check out the video above and see for yourself!
Previously it’s been hinted that the show could feature Kryptonian superheroes Nightwing and Flamebird. While they do have history in the DC Comics, they might be best known for the legend Superman tells young Dick Grayson of Kryptonian gods with by those names, inspiring him to adopt the Nightwing name for himself when he abandons the Robin identity.
Was Kindler referring to Nightwing and Flamebird? Or was he perhaps referring to the reveal at the panel of Adam Strange and Hawkwoman making an appearance on the show?
We’ll find out when Krypton premieres on Syfy.
