WTF? Holy crap! Syfy and Warner Brothers are teaming up to bring us a brand new television show about…..KRYPTON! Yes the place that gave us Superman. This will be either incredibly cool or a disaster of epic proportion, either way it should be great television. I mean we don’t know much about Krypton, so they’ll have a lot of leeway in f’ing with Superman’s history. Jor-El better be a dick in this. I’m sure somehow Zod will be the hero of the show for at least the first few seasons. I bet SyFy Presy Dave is walking around the offices with his pimp stick this week.
Syfy and Warner Horizon Television announced today they are developing a one-hour drama series project Krypton, which will reveal a chapter of the DC Comics universe that has rarely been told.
Years before the Superman legend we know, the House of El was shamed and ostracized. This series 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.
Krypton is being executive produced by David S. Goyer (Constantine, Da Vinci’s Demons, Man of Steel, The Dark Knight trilogy, upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) and Ian Goldberg (Once Upon a Time, FlashForward) for Warner Horizon Television.
Goldberg is writing the pilot teleplay, based on a story conceived by Goyer & Goldberg.
