SyFy Krypton Series To Be Man of Steel Prequel



We haven't heard much about the planned Krypton TV series other than a few press releases mentioning it's in development.

Now we get an update as David Goyer, the creator behind the series and writer on Batman Vs. Superman, Man of Steel and the Christopher Nolan Batman movies, offers it will connect to the DC movie universe while at a press event for the final season of Starz's Da Vinci's Demons.

"It takes place 200 years before Man of Steel," Goyer said, which marks Krypton as the first DC TV series tieing into the DC film universe. "We're treating Krypton like it's a historical piece. We look to previous cultures on Earth to model what that would be like."

Goyer continued with mention of the Kryptonian capital of Kryptopolis and the moons of Krypton as well as stating what we can expect (via newsarama).

"We scratched the surface in the film and, for me, that was the allure," Goyer said. "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."
