‘Krypton’ Spinoff Featuring DC’s Lobo in Development at Syfy

The alien bounty hunter, originally created as a spoof of ultra-violent figures from rival Marvel like Wolverine or The Punisher, makes an appearance in the second season of Syfy's "Krypton", which debuts Wednesday on the network. I imagine his inclusion in Krypton will provide that show with a shot in the arm from audiences who may otherwise have never tuned in, and it says something about the network's belief in the character that they've already given this character a spin-off without even seeing audience reaction to him yet.

Emmett J. Scanlan (Safe, Gangs of London) plays the character on DC Universe's Krypton, but the outlet notes that no additional details on the Lobo casting were available at this time. As we've seen in trailers for the upcoming season of Krypton, he has no problem doing grotesque things to people to get his way.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of these products. The ready-to-eat chicken fritter products were made on February 28, 2019.

Krypton executive producer/writer Cameron Welsh will also produce and write for the Lobo spinoff series, which will put the "foul-mouthed, dangerous, irascible, intergalactic bounty hunter" front and center, according to an announcement.

SYFY is now developing a spinoff series featuring Lobo, the DC Comics character who will be making an appearance in Krypton Season 2, Variety has confirmed. On the 2014 NBC series Constantine, Scanlan played Jim Corrigan, who many comic book fans will know as the host for the spirit Spectre. Warner Horizon Scripted Television confirmed with GameSpot that there is a deal in place with Scanlan to star as Lobo in the new series. Despite his appetite for destruction, Lobo, a popular staple in the comics, still adheres to his own strict, albeit misshapen, moral code.
