(Photo : Facebook/Man of Steel) Henry Cavill plays Superman in the movies, but we won’t see him in the new Superman prequel titled “Krypton.” Fans aren’t happy at all with the recent announcement, and also taking the opportunity to blast DC Comics TV show “Gotham” as well.

SyFy is developing a Superman prequel entitled “Krypton,” but fans don’t seem that excited.

According to IGN, SyFy is teaming up with Warner Horizon Television for the one-hour drama series. David S. Goyer and Ian Goldberg will executive produce the DC Comics spin-off. Goldberg will write the pilot teleplay, which is based on a story conceived by both Goyer and Goldberg.

The TV show is described:

“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.”

IGN said that Krypton will focus on Superman’s grandfather, the father of Jor-El, and is set way before the planet explodes.

This all seems exciting, but for some reasons fans aren’t so enthusiastic about this.

Of course we scoured numerous comment sections on the web to hear what DC Comics fans had to say about the new show. Here are some comments below:

“So, a story about Krypton, the home planet of Superman, without Superman? IIRC, most of the citizens of Krypton aren’t all that special…”

“Can we chill with the prequels? i have never once been curious about superman’s grandfather.”

“I would much rather a series set in the city that revolves around Lois Lane attempting to fight corruption as a journalist in a city in need of heroism.”

“I smell another Gotham-esque turd!”

“Who cares? This is not even about Jor-El? It’s about Superman’s grandfather? Seriously, who is interested in seeing this show?”

“No. Just…no.”

“OMG! Enough with the spin offs already. DC is freak’n over saturating the superhero genre seems like the big screen isn’t enough for them.”

“Will be as bad as Gotham.”

“This whole thing just seems so pointless to exist.”

“Who the heck wants this show!! Gotham had me initially interested as it was the story of Jim Gordon, but who the hell cares about Supes Grandfather!”

“I’m not really interested in this. I would rather see a show about the Justice Society of America.”

“This show will not last 1 season.”

“So we have a Batman TV show with no Batman in it, now we need a Superman TV show with no Superman in it ok count me not excited.”


Tell us, what do you think of this new “Krypton” show coming soon to SyFy? Vote below!
