SyFy have announced that Krypton – focusing on the story of Superman’s grandfather – is in the works.
An official description for the show reads;
“Years before the Superman legend we know, the House of El was shamed and ostracised.
“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.”
David S Goyer, who worked on Man of Steel and The Dark Knight trilogy, is behind the prequel series, while Ian Goldberg is working on the teleplay.
