The Syfy network has been working on a ‘Superman‘ prequel series for several years now, and finally they have released a trailer for the new show which will be called, ‘Krypton‘! This series is ‘NOT’ going to be about Superman, make no mistake about it. The footage we get to see is a look at Superman’s Grandfather who started the ‘House of El’ on Krypton. Check out more details on this below and let us know if this new TV series sounds interesting to you AFTER THE JUMP.
Syfy’s Krypton, the much-anticipated Superman prequel set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet, will follow Superman’s grandfather — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos.
Krypton will be executive produced by David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Dark Knight trilogy) through his Phantom Four banner. Damian Kindler (Sleepy Hollow) will serve as executive producer/showrunner; Colm McCarthy (She Who Brings Gifts, Peaky Blinders) is set to direct and co-executive produce the pilot. The pilot teleplay and story is written by David S. Goyer & Ian Goldberg (Once Upon a Time, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles). Krypton will be produced by Warner Horizon Television and is based on characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, published by DC Comics.
