Krypton Series Set For Pilot Order

With the success of comic book based shows on networks like Fox, AMC, The CW, and a few others, it appears that the SyFy channel is now looking to get into the superhero business as well.

According to THR, SyFy is looking into possibly ordering a pilot for a show called Krypton which would be based on David S. Goyer’s (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Man of Steel, Constantine) take on Superman’s origin story.

The narrative for Krypton would be constructed around the House of El when they were ostracized from Kryptonian society. Seyg-El, the grandfather of both Superman and Supergirl, would most likely serve as the primary protagonist, and would follow his attempts to bring equality to Krypton while dealing with an unknown enemy.

DC and Warner Bros previously tackled Superman’s early days in their hit series Smallville, but this show sounds as though it will be focusing on Clark’s biological family instead before he was probably even conceived.

The show will be executive produced by Damian Kindler (Stargate SG-1) and directed by Colm McCarthy (Sherlock). No actors have been attached yet, but if the series gets officially picked up than that shouldn’t be too far behind.

Even though TNT’s Teen Titans series may be dead, DC still has other plans for the team as they are about to make their debut appearance in DC’s animated movie-verse.

TV Insider has provided the first official image of DC’s upcoming original animated feature film Justice League vs. Teen Titans along with the voice cast attached to the project. The voice cast includes Jon Bernthal as Trigon, Taissa Farmiga as Raven, Jake T. Austin as Blue Beetle, Brandon Soo Hoo as Beast Boy, Kari Wahlgren as Starfire, Shemar Moore as Cyborg, Sean Maher as Nightwing, Stuart Allan as Robin, Jason O’Mara as Batman, Jerry O’Connell as Superman, Rosario Dawson as Wonder Woman, and Christopher Gorham as The Flash.

James Tucker serves as supervising producer for Justice League vs. Teen Titans, which is directed by Sam Liu. Alan Burnett and Bryan Q. Miller wrote the screenplay for the movie and is not based on a specific comic book story.

The film—which will arrive this spring on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD—sends Robin to work with the Titans after his volatile behavior botches a Justice League mission. The young team then must really step up to face Raven’s demonic father Trigon after he possesses the League and threatens to conquer the world.
