Pilot For Superman Prequel "Krypton" Nears A Lock At SyFy

Across the multiverse of DC Comics TV adaptations, perhaps none covers newer ground than David Goyer and company's in development "Krypton" - although it is set hundreds of years before the Man of Steel makes his debut.

The Hollywood Reporter today has news that the pilot that's been gestating since December of 2014 is very close to a full greenlight. If the show does move forward, talent involved will include pilot writer and Goyer's co-creator Ian Goldberg ("Once Upon A Time"), pilot director Colm McCarthy ("Sherlock") and showrunner and executive producer Damian Kindler ("Sleepy Hollow"). No cast has been announced.

Set 200 years before Superman's doomed planet exploded, the series was described by Goyer (who's famously penned a number of big screen comic book adaptations including "Man of Steel") last year saying "Should we make the show, there will definitely be some big moments. It won't be wall-to-wall visual effects every single moment, spectacle, in the way that the film will be, but we'll also be digging into the characters and the culture a lot more."

Stay tuned to CBR for more on whether SyFy will go forward with "Krypton."
