Default METROPOLIS (2012/2013; New Superman TV Series)

For those who have been waiting for news and I found this totally by accident, I discovered that IMDB (International Movie Database) has a listing for a new television series for the 2012/2013 television season.

Tom Welling, Erica Durance, Aaron Ashmore and Michael Mckean are returning to network television in ... METROPOLIS.

Reprising their roles as Clark Kent/Superman, Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen and Daily Planet Editor Perry White, the series is being produced by Tom Welling Productions.

I haven't been able to find out any further information about this but I'm waiting for confirmation back from Michael Ausiello from I found this information on the following websites:

IMDB is like wikipedia anyone who registers on their site can add content. It's a fan pipe dream just as it's stated in the link.

None of that is official and with a new Superman movie, WB more than likely will not push for a new Superman show.

Also it's Internet Movie Database, not International.
....and so says the Meeklo

As far as I'm concerned, after that pitiful series finale, a live action Superman television series featuring the Smallvile crew is dead. Give me something more faithful. Hell, after Nolan bows out from the franchise, give me a Batman series. It was rumored well over a year ago and if they can do it right and seriously, it could be a hell of a show.

I remember when the Dick Grayson series was rumored, I rolled my eyes. I wish I was older and had a way to march into the offices with an appointment and pitch a Dick Grayson-Nightwing series instead.

Wasn't this already debunked in the Smallville thread?

I think that if it were in "post-production" that we would be hearing something official about it by now maybe. I don't think it will end up happening.

Wow, this thread hasn't had an update in years...until now:

Superman Prequel Drama Series ‘Metropolis’ About Lois Lane & Lex Luthor Ordered By DC Digital Service

Lois Lane and supervillain Lex Luthor are getting their own live-action series. Warner Bros. upcoming DC-Branded direct-to-consumer digital platform has given 13-episode straight-to-series order to Metropolis, a new drama series from Gotham executive producers John Stephens and Danny Cannon and Warner Bros. TV. It will go into production later this year for premiere on the service in 2019.

Set in the wondrous and awe-inspiring City of Tomorrow before the arrival of Superman, Metropolis, based on the DC characters, follows Lois Lane and Lex Luthor as they investigate the world of fringe science and expose the city’s dark and bizarre secrets.

tephens and Cannon executive produce. Cannon will direct the first episode, from a teleplay by Stephens, with story by Cannon and Stephens. Warner Bros. TV, where Stephens and Cannon are under overall deals, is the studio.

Stephens and Cannon have served as executive producers since Season 1 on another prequel drama series named after an iconic DC Comics city that a famous DC superhero calls home, Fox’s Batman prequel Gotham, whose pilot Cannon also directed. Stephens previously served as writer-producer on Gossip Girl, The O.C. and Gilmore Girls. Cannon previously served as an executive producer and director on Nikita and the CSI franchise, among others.

Metropolis marks the fourth series ordered for the new DC digital service, joining WBTV’s Titans, and Warner Bros. Animation’s Harley Quinn and Young Justice: Outsiders.

It also is the second Superman prequel series in the works, joining Syfy’s upcoming Krypton, from David S. Goyer, Damian Kindler and DC/Warner Bros. TV. That series takes place on the planet Krypton approximately 200 years before the birth of Kal-El aka Superman aka Clark Kent.

WBTV previously explored Clark, Lex and Lois’ early years in the long-running the WB/CW series Smallville. There, Lex and Lois were played by Michael Rosenbaum and Erica Durance. On the 1993 ABC series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, the Lois and Lex characters were played by Teri Hatcher and John Shea.

Poor Superman can't seem to catch a break, his cousin, grandfather and girlfriend each get a series and yet he can't even get a sequel to his own movie. If the DC streaming service would have announced a second season of Constantine or a Superman series with Superman I would subscribe the minute it drops but so far there is nothing that's been announced that makes me excited enough to subscribe.

This doesn't make any sense; why would Lois be working with Lex?
