    Krypton will be:

    * A prequel
    * On SyFy
    * From Goyer
    * About a bunch of people no one's ever heard of
    * Without Superman

    Is there even a chance it won't be utterly appalling?

  • JustStark

    I thought it seemed bizarre when I read it. It's not even like anybody knows anything about Krypton except that it exploded, so basically we're just talking about a generic sci-fi story set on a random planet far from Earth.

    That explodes at the end.

  • Mark Carroll

    Plenty of potential then!

  • Not much. But given no one will have superpowers, maybe it'll be The West Wing in space. Or, if we're less lucky, feudal Caprica

  • Andy Butcher

    I have a suspicion that it'll have been pitched as 'Game of Thrones in space'… 😉

  • That was Dominion, wasn't it? Or maybe it was Defiance 😉
