David Goyer talks Superman TV spin-off Krypton

It’s been a while since we had an update on SyFy's Superman spin-off series, Krypton. However, David Goyer has been talking to Collider (opens in new tab) about the new show, revealing that it is still in development and giving an insight into the thinking behind the prequel.

“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,” explains Goyer. “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.”

“In terms of production value, you have to pick your moments,” he continues. “Should we make the show there will definitely be some big moments. It won’t be wall to wall visual effects every single moment, spectacle, in the way that the film will be, but we’ll also be digging into the characters and the culture a lot more.”

Goyer hinted that there would be an official announcement about the show’s future in due course, so hopefully this one will be on the horizon sooner rather than later.

George was once GamesRadar's resident movie news person, based out of London. He understands that all men must die, but he'd rather not think about it. But now he's working at Stylist Magazine.
