The upcoming and highly anticipated mini-series Krypton is due to be released in 2018. Now from the recent trailer, we can see that the set design looks very similar to the Krypton shown in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, and they seem to be alluding to how the two are in a shared universe. However, the show is produced by the SyFy Channel and you can see in the 0:45 mark that someone hands the 'old' version of Superman's uniform to an ancestor of Kal El:

This is confusing and seems like they're trying to avoid a cross-over (most likely due to licencing reasons). I just need clarification, is there an official statement on where Krypton fits in with the DCEU?


There is, Geoff Johns (Chief Creative Officer of DC Comics and the producer and writer of the TV shows) said:

'...it will stand on its own and exist in its own universe.'

Consequently, there won't be crossovers with other shows set in the DCEU.

He also mentions

'it's about a conspiracy that has traveled back in time to prevent Superman's legacy from ever happening'

which would explain the 'old' version of Superman's uniform in the trailer.
