Krypton is less than a month away from debuting on Syfy. We have a ton of new information, including our first look at Brainiac. We discuss this plus more Doom Patrol casting on Titans, and Arrowverse.
First look at Blake Ritson as Brainiac on Krypton - USA Today
Ritson - "Yes, he traverses the universe in a gigantic skull ship, ripping cities out of planets, miniaturizing them and placing them on board. But he does so in the spirit of conservation. In his mind, he's committed to the ultimate philanthropic act: saving all of creation. In many ways it's analogous to Noah plucking out two of every animal to ensure their survival, even while knowing that others must perish."
"it's something of a blank canvas that has allowed a lot of freedom for the writers to world-build. This is a major expansion of the Superman universe and mythology and the civilization that fostered the greatest hero that ever lived."
Initially took 7 hours to apply Brainiac makeup, now “only” 4.5 hours
