Upcoming David S. Goyer T.V. Series ‘Krypton’ Will Tackle A ‘200 Years” Backstory Prior To “Man of Steel”

David S. Goyer who will be spearheading the prequel series of Superman’s home world for television entitled “Krypton” recently dished-out some exciting newsflash regarding the upcoming series.

Goyer, who is in a campaign trail for his  historical fantasy drama series “Da Vinci’s Demons” mentioned to Comicbook that the prelude of the serial will be set 200 years prior to the events of “Man of Steel”.


“We’re treating Krypton like it’s a historical piece,” the American screenwriter and film director said.

The 49-year-old also made it known that they have immersed themselves on previous cultures on Earth as they will make them as reference points for their latest project.

Goyer, who made the screenplay for “Man of Steel” admitted that the 2013 movie was just the tip of the iceberg as the series will delve on the storyline of why planet Krypton exploded which only left a handful of survivors.

“Krypton” which will be aired on the Syfy network maybe poles apart when it comes to a full-movie production value but Goyer has stressed that “they will be picking their moments” for the series.

“It won’t be wall to wall visual effects every single moment, spectacle, in the way that the film will be, but we’ll also be digging into the characters and the culture a lot more,” the director explained.

Krypton will join the list of DC-related material that is being show in the small screen with Arrow on its fourth season and Flash on its sophomore year. Gotham also a prequel to the “Batman” story arc is on a second run while “Supergirl” is slated for an October 26 television release.

The frequent DC-collaborator is also involved with the television adaptation of Vertigo’s Sandman, which is a DC imprint.

Collider reported that a “fantastic writer” has been brought onboard to brush up the “Dream King” screenplay as it will start production next year.
