SyFy Developing KRYPTON TV Series with David Goyer
About a month ago, a rumor was reported that David Goyer was developing a Superman prequel series called Krypton. It looks like those rumors were true, and THR has confirmed that the SyFy Channel is developing the show with Goyer. We even have some plot details!
According to the report, Krypton "takes place years before the Superman legend we know, when the House of El was shamed and ostracized. This drama, which is in development, follows the Man of Steel's grandfather as he brings hope and equality to Krypton, turning a planet in disarray into one worthy of giving birth to the greatest Super Hero ever known."
I love this concept, and I'm really happy to hear that this series is actually happening. This has the potential to be an epic show. I'm really curious to see how they bring the world of Krypton to life on the small screen. Ian Goldberg (Once Upon a Time, FlashForward) is writing the script for the pilot and will also executive produce alongside Goyer.
There are a ton of DC Entertainment projects going on, such as The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, and Constantine. TNT is also developing a series called Titans. That show will revolve around a group of superheroes-to-be based on characters from the DC universe that includes Dick Grayson, Starfire, Raven, and more.
DC Entertainment has been doing awesome in the TV department, and I'm excited to see how it all comes together.
