After helping to bring Superman back to life on the big screen with Man of Steel, writer David S. Goyer is reportedly attached to a TV show entitled Krypton, set on Superman's home planet.
No story details have been confirmed, and it isn't known if the series is set up at a network at this time, but Bleeding Cool suggests that this series might be using the same formula as Fox and DC Comics' Gotham, which is set years before a young Bruce Wayne ever becomes Batman. It's possible that this Krypton show could include the "House of El," the villain Brainiac, an "end-of-the-world cult" and several dragons, but nothing has been confirmed at this time.Read More
When Constantine premieres on NBC next Friday, it will join a growing number of shows based on DC Comics, including The CW's Arrow and The Flash and Fox's Gotham, with others like CBS' Supergirl in development. Like the previously-mentioned shows, Constantine will also introduce several other characters from the DC Comics universe, according to series creator/executive producer/showrunner David S. Goyer.
John Constantine often tangled with Swamp Thing in the Hellblazer comic books throughout the years, but it will certainly be tricky to bring a TV version of this visually complex character to the small screen.Read More
