Melrose Place actor Shaun Sipos has been cast in the role of Adam Strange in upcoming Syfy series, Krypton.

Strange has been described as “a world-weary human, who finds himself stranded on Krypton as the unlikely mentor to Seg-El, Superman’s grandfather”. Seg-El, played by Cameron Cuffe, did appear to be in danger throughout the newly released trailer, so perhaps having Strange as a mentor is for the best.

The inclusion of Strange was announced back in July at San Diego Comic-Con by DC Comics’ Chief Creative Officer, Geoff Johns, who said that Strange and (as-yet-uncast) Hawkwoman travel back through time and space in order to try and prevent the creation of Superman on their modern-day Earth. Johns explained:

“Adam Strange and Hawkwoman come to Krypton trying to stop the conspiracy and save Superman’s legacy […] Doomsday will be in the show. Brainiac is long overdue to be on screen like that.”

However, Brainiac, Hawkwoman and Doomsday are yet to be cast.

Krypton’s debut on Syfy is expected next year.
