SyFy officially confirmed last night it would be developing a prequel series based on Superman, with David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, Nolan’s Batman series) and Ian Goldberg (Once Upon a Time) writing the pilot.

“Years before the Superman legend we know, the House of El was shamed and ostracized. This series follows The Man of Steel’s grandfather as he brings hope and equality to Krypton, turning a planet in disarray into one worthy of giving birth to the greatest Super Hero ever known.”

Smallville already exists, so it looks like SyFy is taking a bigger step back  by giving folks a glimpse at Krypton. DC shows are definitely a trend that won’t seem to die down soon.
