The proposed series “Krypton,” the origin story of Superman from “Man of Steel” scribe David S. Goyer, is reportedly nearing a pilot order at SyFy.
Damian Kindler (“Sleepy Hollow,” “Stargate SG-1”) serves as executive producer and showrunner on the project which takes place years before the Superman legend we know, when the House of El was shamed and ostracized.
The main character is Kal-El’s grandfather who brings hope and equality to Krypton, turning a planet in disarray into one worthy of giving birth to the greatest superhero ever known.
Colm McCarthy (“Peaky Blinders,” “Sherlock”) will direct from a script by Ian Goldberg.
