    Krypton (Man of Steel Prequel series coming to Syfy) - Season 2 2019

    http://variety.com/2014/tv/news/syfy...er-1201374350/
    Syfy has cut a deal with David S. Goyer for a Superman prequel revolving around the Man of Steel’s grandfather.

    David S. Goyer, the prolific producer who has shepherded DC Comics properties in the past including “Man of Steel,” is spearheading “Krypton” with DC Entertainment and Warner Horizon Television. Ian Goldberg (“Once Upon a Time”) is writing the teleplay based on a story that he conceived with Goyer.

    The project will revolve around Superman’s grandfather as he struggles to bring hope and equality to the planet Krypton at a time when the house of El is shamed and ostracized.

    Goyer and Goldberg are exec producers.

    I think it would be much more interesting if they stuck more to the idea of Krypton from the comic and not the Matrix

    200 Years before Man of Steel
    For a lot of people, the Krypton-set Man of Steel prologue was a highlight of the film, and yeah, you got to watch Russell Crowe ride a soaring dragon beast, so, obviously. Goyer talked about having the opportunity to “pull back the curtain” on Superman’s home planet, but also noted that the initial script had forty pages worth of material set on Krypton, with the final cut amounting to just about 15 minutes.

    Part of the fun of doing Man of Steel — and I was so insistent on setting that opening on Krypton and really seeing it, was pulling back the curtain. The first draft, the first forty pages were on Krypton, so we compressed that all down to fifteen minutes and there were a lot of ideas that I wanted to use in the film that didn’t ultimately make it into the film.
    While some of those ideas may end up popping up in Krypton, there probably won’t be a ton of overlap since Goyer says the series is set “200 years before”. There’s also the small matter of TV budget and production value (though it’s worth noting that the network recently threw down a massive budget for their space epic The Expanse and the result is a fantastic looking pilot.) Even so, you’re not going to get an effects budget on par with a major studio blockbuster on Syfy, and Goyer knows it, pointing out that the series would pick it’s moments, and focus more intently on the characters and Kryptonian culture.

    I assume it's his grandfather rather than the obvious father so they don't have to try to recast Russell Crowe.

    Yes, currently the only TV series to be connected, but takes place 200 years before anything of note.
