Blake Ritson to Play Brainiac on Krypton


Deadline reports that Blake Ritson is playing Brainiac on Syfy’s television series Krypton. Though no word on if the character is recurring or a main cast member. It’s important to note creator David S. Goyer  confirmed this series exists in the DC Films Universe, so the question now stands, will Blake Ritson appear in the films as the character?


A parasitic, hyper-advanced alien android of immense intelligence, Brainiac is one of Superman’s oldest and most dangerous foes.

Brainiac first appeared in Action Comics #242 (1958) and created by Otto Binder (Writer) and Al Plastino (artist). In the comics Brainiac is one of Superman’s biggest villains and has a close connection to his home world as well as Supergirl. In some continuities Brainiac is an organic life form who preserves all life in the hopes of gathering all knowledge in the universe, he does this by shrinking a major city in each world before its destroyed. In other continuities, namely starting with Superman: The Animated Series he’s an A.I. who is responsible for Krypton’s destruction as well as others.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
