KRYPTON Preview References Doomsday
This article features some spoilers for Krypton.
Doomsday is drawing near.
Since the beginning of the series, Krypton has been teasing the appearance of one of Superman’s greatest foes. Now, it seems like the wait for Doomsday is nearly over.
Last night’s episode of Krypton featured a preview for future episodes and at the end of the clip, Colin Salmon’s General Zod references Doomsday and teases fans may see him in the very near future.
While we don’t know what the series has in store for Doomsday, it sounds like it may be worth the wait. During last year’s San Diego Comic Con, actor Cameron Cuffe talked about the addition of Doomsday and teased there’s some cool stuff coming involving the villain.
There’s not too much I can say about that right now. But obviously, you know, when Geoff came out at Comic-Con and revealed all these awesome characters we’re gonna play with, it’s so awesome to share them with everyone. Doomsday obviously has such significance, that death of Superman came out in ’93 that was the year of my birth, and it’s an amazing Superman story, and it changed comics forever. Not just Superman, changed comics.So to be a part of that, to be a part of that story and I don’t want to tell you how it all lines up, but we get to do some really, really cool stuff with Doomsday.
Part of why we kept Zod under wraps, and why it wasn’t mentioned at Comic-Con, amongst the other things, because it is such a big season-changing twist for us. It’s that midseason point where the whole first season gets turned on its head 180 degrees. Adam [Strange] comes to Krypton with a very specific message to Seg: Superman’s birth, his very existence, is under threat and we have to stop Braniac. Brainiac is coming back in time to change history. But we all know that Brainiac was always coming to take Kandor City. And that’s what Adam got wrong; Zod was coming back to change history. So that’s the big turn in the season.
