David S. Goyer, the creator, speaks on the DC Extended Universe's first TV tie-in.

In a report from, news is circulating that David S. Goyer, writer of all three films in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy, as well as the DC Extended Universe films Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and both parts of the upcoming Justice League films, is working on a new project entitled Krypton, which will serve as a prequel to 2013's Man of Steel and the first television show to be connected to DC's cinematic universe.

The show, according to Goyer, "takes place 200 years before Man of Steel." Similar to Fox's Gotham, a police drama set in the city of the same name before the rise of Batman, Goyer states that more of Krypton will be seen in the show than in its cinematic portrayal.

"We scratched the surface in the film and, for me, that was the allure [...] I was always fascinated, as a kid, with the books about Krypton and they've only shaded in a tiny bit, so we'll learn about the politics of the world...the culture, the art, all the different guilds." - Goyer

Not only will the show look at Kryptonopolis, Krypton's capital, but various other locations as well. Not much else is known about the upcoming project, but it sounds as if it will expand the cosmic backstory in the DC Extended Universe.

Krypton is being produced for the Syfy channel. More news is bound to arrive in the coming months surrounding the project.
