Season 2 brings us back to a changed Kandor, locked in a battle over its freedom and its future. General Dru-Zod (Colin Salmon) is now in control. He’s on a ruthless mission to rebuild Krypton according to his ideals and to secure its future by conquering the universe. Faced with a bleak outlook, our hero, Seg-El, attempts to unite a dispersed group of resisters in an effort to defeat Zod and restore hope to their beloved planet. Their chance at redemption is threatened however, by their opposing tactics, shifting alliances and conflicting moral boundaries – forcing each of them to individually determine how far they’re willing to go in pursuit of a better tomorrow.

Krypton season 2 will premiere on Syfy on June 12.

B-List DC Comics Characters Who Deserve Their Own Movies
DC Comics are ripe of amazing characters with potential. If Marvel can successfully make an Iron Man movie, something that was considered a bad idea at the time due to the character’s unpopular status, then DC can do something similar with a different character. Batman and Superman are great, but they don’t deserve all the attention in this fascinating universe.
With so many DC-themed movies on the horizon over at Warner Brothers, it makes sense for producers to dig through back issues to search for interesting stories about characters who aren’t necessarily known by the full public to adapt. There are no such thing as bad characters — sometimes certain writers just aren’t able to bring out the character’s full potential in various stories. Even the best heroes and villains can have bad movies (I’m looking at you Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), so all these characters need is a strong, passionate filmmaker to come around and turn them into a hit.
