The Superman origin story of his home planet based television series, by David S. Goyer titled Krypton, that’s been on hold for over a year now with no further announcements, might be finally receiving a Pilot order by the television network Syfy soon, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The plot summary for Krypton:
Krypton takes place years before the Superman legend we know, when the House of El was shamed and ostracized. The drama 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 Superhero ever known.
Damian Kindler (Sleepy Hollow, Stargate SG-1) has come on board as executive producer and showrunner, with Colm McCarthy (Peaky Blinders, Sherlock) set to direct. Ian Goldberg (Once Upon a Time) penned the script and will exec produce alongside Goyer. The story was conceived by both Goyer and Goldberg.
