DC Developing Live-Action METROPOLIS TV Series Revolving Around Lois Lane And Lex Luthor

DC's planned digital service is developing another live-action series alongside Titans as it's been revealed today that Metropolis is in the works. What role, if any, will Superman end up playing? Well...

Syfy is currently hard at work developing Krypton, a prequel TV series following the adventures of Superman's grandfather long before Kal-El was born. Now, another Man of Steel-themed prequel is in the works in the form of Metropolis, a live-action show developed by DC for its new digital service.

That launches later this year and will bring Titans with it but this show is targeting a 2019 debut and the first season will consist of thirteen episodes. Gotham executive producers John Stephens and Danny Cannon are writing the story (which could be cause for concern depending on how much you like that show) and will serve as executive producers on the project. Stephens will write the pilot and Cannon will direct but don't fret, we won't see a ten-year-old Clark running around saving the day! 

Instead, Metropolis is going to revolve around Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane and the villainous Lex Luthor in the years before Superman arrived in the city. That means he'll still be off in Smallville doing his own thing and won't appear in the show. That could change given time but it seems DC is looking to put the focus solely on Lois and Lex's respective journies before they met the iconic DC Comics hero.

The logline says the show will follow "Lois Lane and Lex Luthor as they investigate the world of fringe science and expose the city’s dark and bizarre secrets." Does that mean they're working together?

What do you guys think of the concept? Here's the first piece of officially released key art for the show:
