‘Krypton’ Pilot Gets The Greenlight From SyFy

One of the better parts of ‘Man of Steel’ was the time spent on Krypton and the fascinating world director Zack Snyder envisioned. Russell Crowe brought the action-hero and the gravitas to Jor-El. Three years later it looks like fans will get to see more of Krypton.

Deadline is reporting that David S. Goyer’s ‘Man of Steel’ prequel Krypton has been given the greenlight at Syfy. The project was stuck in the development stage for the past year-and-a-half. Deadline’s report also states that Damian Kindler is the executive producer/showrunner, and Colm McCarthy will direct the pilot.

The series is set two generations before the destruction of Krypton. 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.

Goyer will also serve as executive producer to ‘Krypton.’

What do you think? Are you excited for a weekly series set on Krypton?
