David S. Goyer Attached to TV Series Based on Planet Krypton. Following the success of Gotham and it’s pre-Batman stories, DC is developing another show on the same veins as Fox’s hit drama. This one will be a Pre-Superman series called Krypton, which Man of Steel’s David S. Goyer will write.
According to Bleeding Cool, David Goyer has only begun writing for the Pre-Superman series. Details have been vague, but the site suggests that the upcoming drama series will explore Kal-El’s home planet where it will likely involve the House of El and Braniac. David Goyer wrote the screenplay for Man of Steel, which also portrayed some of the Kryptonian lifestyle. Krypton was depicted in the opening scenes of the film where it was shown to have a dystopian background with Earthlike terrain. The show may also be tied to the movie universe since it dates pre-Superman.
DC has looked into Krypton before as stories through comic titles like the World of Krypton and For The Man Who Has Everything. Perhaps the series can use inspiration from those stories and apply them into the show. Currently no network has shown any interest in the project yet.
The last time a TV show was adapted based on Superman was Smallville, which chronicled the adventures of teen Clark Kent before he became the Man of Steel. Also, CBS is developing Supergirl, a TV series based on Superman’s cousin Kara Zor-El.
David Goyer has plenty on his plate as far as television work goes. David has been involved with NBC’s Constantine and the Starz series Da Vinci’s Demons. His upcoming film projects include Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the Justice League films.
