So, apparently SyFy is moving forward with a pitch for a show about Superman’s home planet of Krypton. It appears that they are working with Goyer and the focus will be the House of El.
But truth be told, I cannot see that as all that interesting. What makes Superman who he is comes down to his being sent away from Krypton. He is not who he is due to the House of El, he is who he is because of Earth, the Kents, Lois Lane and a host of other earthlings.
The only way I could see this truly being interesting is to be set centuries before the destruction of Krypton. No House of El. No preparing for the death of the planet.
