Based on DC Comics characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Krypton is set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet.

Cowan is Daron Vex, the Chief Magistrate of Kandor. His real business is defending Krypton’s established oligarchy against heretics and dissidents. Ogbomo will play Primus Alura Zod, Lyta Zod’s mother and a leader of Krypton’s military guild. She is an extremely tough and demanding training officer. Hardiker will portray the rankless Kem, is a brilliant engineer as well as Seg-El’s best friend and partner in an underground tech-repair business. Day will play Nyssa Vex, a junior magistrate and the daughter of Daron Vex. Pierre is Dev-Em, a cadet under the command of Primus Alura Zod.
