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. It follows Superman’s grandfather — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos.
Season two is set to introduce alien bounty hunter, Lobo, as the next season’s primary villain.
Lobo is from the peaceful planet of Czarnia. He was born a devil in the midst of utopia. Loosely translated from his native language, his name means “he who devours your entrails and thoroughly enjoys it.” As a teenager, he single-handedly slaughtered his entire civilization, becoming the last of his race. Now the mercenary roams the universe on his motorcycle, getting paid for what he loves most: murder and mayhem.
The decision to bring Lobo into the Krypton world arrives as Warner Bros. — which controls the rights to DC characters on both the big and small screens — is eyeing the big-bad for a feature film. Warner Bros. Pictures is developing Lobo as a possible directing vehicle for Michael Bay. A movie take on Lobo has been in various stages of development for more than 15 years, with Will Smith, Dwayne Johnson, Guy Richie and Brad Peyton all previously connected with the IP.
Season two of Kyrpton will expand beyond Kandor to other planets as Doomsday is unleashed. The Superman prequel will also delve into the origins of Brainiac and get a better sense of the true threat the character poses.
Also being introduced in season 2 is Nightwing and Flamebird. Not the Nightwing connected to Batman however.
In Kryptonian mythology, Nightwing and Flamebird are powerful dragon-like gods. Much like Hawkman and Hawkgirl, Nightwing and Flamebird are eternally bound together. The two are always drawn to seek each other’s companionship, though their stories generally end in tragedy. Following their deaths, the two are reincarnated. They spend every life cycle in search of each other. The pair have served as the inspiration for numerous superhero duos
