As first announced at this past Summer's San Diego Comic-Con, Adam Strange is coming to the Superman prequel series Krypton.

Now Deadline reports Adam Strange has been cast in Krypton with Melrose Place and The Vampire Diaries actor Shaun Sipos set to appear as a series regular.

In addition to Adam Strange, characters that were announced at Comic-Con also include Brainiac, Doomsday and Hawkwoman, with possibly Nightwing and Flamebird also appearing on the show.

Syfy’s Krypton, the much-anticipated Superman prequel set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet, will follow 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.

Krypton will be executive produced by David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Dark Knight trilogy) through his Phantom Four banner. Damian Kindler (Sleepy Hollow) will serve as executive producer/showrunner; Colm McCarthy (She Who Brings Gifts, Peaky Blinders) is set to direct and co-executive produce the pilot. The pilot teleplay and story is written by David S. Goyer & Ian Goldberg (Once Upon a Time, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles). Krypton will be produced by Warner Horizon Television and is based on characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, published by DC Comics.
