Syfy has cut a deal with David S. Goyer for a Superman prequel revolving around the Man of Steel’s grandfather.

David S. Goyer, the prolific producer who has shepherded DC Comics properties in the past including “Man of Steel,” is spearheading “Krypton” with DC Entertainment and Warner Horizon Television. Ian Goldberg (“Once Upon a Time”) is writing the teleplay based on a story that he conceived with Goyer.

The project will revolve around Superman’s grandfather as he struggles to bring hope and equality to the planet Krypton at a time when the house of El is shamed and ostracized.

Goyer and Goldberg are exec producers.

    It’s Syfy, so we know it’ll be cancelled in one season.

  2. Dave Coleman says:

    The best parts of the Man of Steel movie were the scenes on Krypton. Goyer just needs to maintain that and it should be fine. Although he has a pretty bad television track record.

  3. Gom says:

    SyFy is going to F it up like they do everything else.

  4. Jedi77 says:

    How utterly redundant…

  5. SAMURAI36 says:

    …Or NBC makes Constantine. These networks just show the product, they have nothing to do with their production.

  6. SAMURAI36 says:

    Uhmm, Sy-fy is not making this, WB is. It’s like saying Fox makes Gotham, orRIF.

  7. Duke Springer says:

    Oh please, not another bleepin’ superhero movie / TV series.

  8. Hope this turns out better than all the other movies Syfy makes.

  9. IM Groot says:

    NO! Not Goyer!!

  10. I can’t wait to see how David S. Goyer will developed Superman prequel Krypton. It will be interested to how Krypton will look like. Good luck to the new series.
