SyFy Planning Superman Prequel Series Krypton


krypton_artOf the four big DC comics series on television right now, Gotham left my DVR pretty quickly. From the strange changes to characters (Dent is supposed to be the same age as Bruce) to the creepy serial-killer-in-training Bruce Wayne, the series just sucks. Thanks to Netflix paying more than $1 million per episode for streaming rights, Fox is keeping the around and that’s making others think that DC prequel series are a good idea.

Now it’s Superman’s turn. THR is reporting that the SyFy Channel is teaming up with Man of Steel writer David Goyer for a Krypton series:

From Warner Horizon Television and DC Comics, Krypton takes place years before the Superman legend we know, when the House of El was shamed and ostracized. This drama, which is in development, follows the Man of Steel’s grandfather as he brings hope and equality to Krypton, turning a planet in disarray into one worthy of giving birth to the greatest Super Hero ever known.

It sounds a lot like Caprica, and as good as the Krypton stuff in Man of Steel was, does anyone really want to see this?
