Metropolis Superman Prequel Series Coming To DC Digital

In addition to SyFy’s Krypton, another Superman prequel series is happening as WB announces Metropolis is coming to their DC Digital network.

Metropolis is a live-action drama set prior to Superman arriving in the City of Tomorrow centering on Lois Lane and Lex Luthor as they “investigate the world of fringe science and expose the city’s dark and bizarre secrets.”

Metropolis will begin production later this year, with the first season consisting of 13 episodes set to debut in 2019, from  Gotham executive producers John Stephens and Danny Cannon.

John Stephens (Gotham, Gossip Girl, The O.C., Gilmore Girls) and Danny Cannon (Gotham, Nikita, CSI series) are the executive producers of Metropolis. Danny Cannon will direct the first episode, from a teleplay by John Stephens, with story by Cannon and Stephens. Based on characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, published by DC, Metropolis is produced by Warner Bros. Television.

The order for Metropolis marks the fourth announced series for the new DC digital service, which will deliver an immersive experience designed just for DC fans. Additional programs include Warner Bros. Television’s live-action drama Titans, as well as Warner Bros. Animation’s Harley Quinn and Young Justice: Outsiders.
