DC has given what fans have wanted for quite a while. Finally a Metropolis show! However, it is in the vein of Gotham, meaning there will be no tights, no flights.
“Metropolis will follow Lois Lane and Lex Luthor as they investigate the world of fringe science and expose the city’s dark and bizarre secrets. Airing exclusively on DC’s upcoming digital service, it promises to show us a wondrous and awe-inspiring City of Tomorrow, before the emergence of Superman, and establish much of the Man of Steel’s world leading up to his arrival.”
“Metropolis is being overseen by Gotham executive producers John Stephens and Danny Cannon. Both will executive produce this series, and Cannon will also direct the first episode, from a teleplay by Stephens, with the story by Cannon and Stephens.”
“Metropolis is the second live-action series to be announced for DC’s upcoming digital service, which promises to offer an immersive experience designed expressly for DC fans. The first series, Titans, is scheduled to debut later this year. In addition, two highly anticipated animated series, Young Justice: Outsiders and Harley Quinn, have also been announced for the service.”
“Metropolis, which will debut in 2019, has received a direct-to-series order for the first season of 13 episodes and will go into production later this year.”
