Check out the awesome first look of the Brainiac from the upcoming Krypton series. We’ve seen a few different versions of the character over the years in other DC TV series, but this is the best version so far. They really did a great job going with the comic book character and not some character from their own imagination.
Brainiac is being played by British actor Blake Ritson in the Syfy series and in an interview with USA Today, he said: “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.”
He went on to talk about the version of Brainiac in the series, saying:
“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.”
