The rumors that "Man of Steel" writer David. S. Goyer is attached to a Krypton TV prequel have turned out to be true. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Goyer is teaming up with Syfy to bring the home planet of Kal-El to life. "Once Upon a Time" scribe Ian Goldberg will pen the script, from a story created by himself and Goyer.
"Krypton takes place years before the Superman legend we know, when the House of El was shamed and ostracized," THR explains. The series will center on Superman's grandfather - the father of Jor-El - as he strives to bring equality to the planet.
