A common complaint from fans of Arrow and The Flash is that they don’t connect to the DC Cinematic Universe the same way Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter and Daredevil do with the MCU. Well, David Goyer has revealed that Krypton, the Superman-less show he is currently developing, will serve as a prequel to Man of Steel and the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
“It takes place 200 years before Man of Steel,” Goyer said at the junket for his new show Da Vinci’s Demons. “We’re treating Krypton like it’s a historical piece. We look to previous cultures on Earth to model what that would be like.”
“We scratched the surface in the film and, for me, that was the allure,” Goyer added referring to Man of Steel. “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. We’ll learn about the culture, the art, all the different guilds.”
Krypton currently has no air date, but is currently being developed by David Goyer.
