David Goyer's Krypton TV series gets a pilot order from SyFy

David Goyer Krypton TV SyFy pilot

We've been hearing about David Goyer's development of a MAN OF STEEL prequel television series for well over a year now, but the reaction to the potential series has never been all that positive. It looks as though we're going to have to get used to the series as Krypton has come one step closer to becoming a reality. SyFy is close to finalizing a deal for a pilot order, and Damian Kindler (Sleepy Hollow) has come on board the project as executive producer/show-runner, with Colm McCarthy (Peaky Blinders) set to direct the pilot.

Krypton will be set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet. It follows 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.

Damian Kindler and David Goyer are doing rewrites on the pilot script which will greatly expand the world we saw so briefly in MAN OF STEEL. Goyer hasn't said much about the series, but he has said that they'll be "treating Krypton like it’s a historical piece. We look to previous cultures on Earth to model what that would be like. We scratched the surface in the film and, for me, that was the allure. I was always fascinated, as a kid, with the books about Krypton and they’ve only shaded in a tiny bit, so we’ll learn about the politics of the world. We’ll learn about the culture, the art, all the different guilds."

What does Krypton have to do in order to gain your interest?

Did they think this would work because of GOTHAM's success?

That show has worked so far for the following reasons:
-BRUCE WAYNE may not be the protagonist, but he's still a main character. We won't see KAL-EL, even as a baby.
-JAMES GORDON was already a beloved character before the show. Does anyone who's not a comic book fan know SUPERMAN's grandfather's name?
-Setting the show in the past doesn't prevent the famous villains from appearing. We'll probably see ZOD and his henchmen, but that's it.

I'd say Gotham's 2nd season improves a lot from the 1st season and I like that it focuses on a lot of characters, not just Jim Gordon.

Next up? GOTHAM LEGACY: The story of Thomas Wayne's mother and father growing up in old Gotham. Plus, a Batgirl series in which Batgirl chats with Bruce Wayne on the internet.

This is as exciting as Pompeii the series. We all know the volcano is going to erupt and kill everyone. What's the point of making a series out of the planet that we know will be destroyed anyway?

Lol... They decided to base it on the Grandfather because they couldn't get Russell Crow for the series.

Goyer and Syfy are a perfect combination of bullshit. I hope this keeps him away from movies.

Well, as bad as Man of Steel was, BvS was even worse. So the problem might not be with Goyer.

He had a writing credit on BvS. Even without counting that, he's terrible!
