DC continues it’s quest for dominance over your television as IGN reports that SyFy and Warner Bros has announced that they’re developing Krypton a new series about Superman’s home planet before it went all kaboom. Executive produced by David S Goyer (Dark Knight Trilogy, Man of Steel) and Ian Goldberg (Once Upon a Time, FlashForward) The show will focus on Jor-El’s father aka Superman’s grandpa, The series description is as follows,
“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.”
A Krypton TV series is an interesting idea as the fabled planet and it’s history has little been explored and of course no superpowers would be in play here either, but there’s room to come up with a wholly original addition to the Superman mythos here and that’s exciting.
