Syfy has announced who will be the big bad of the forthcoming second season of Krypton.

At today’s Krypton panel (via SuperHeroHype), Syfy & DC Entertainment revealed that Lobo, the intergalactic bounty hunter will take on villain duties for the new season. The fan-favourite character has been rumoured to be getting his own movie for a while, but it looks like for now he’s heading to TV instead.

No casting announcement has been made just yet. Suggestions?
