The Comic giant DC Comics Universe continues to expand. With the launch of its highly anticipated streaming service, DC is set to launch a few new series such as Metropolis. Last month, the comic book company made the big announcement about prequel series and it is already in the works.
According to the latest update by Omega Underground, Metropolis will begin filming in June. As per the schedule, the filming will reportedly end by December. As for the locations, they might be taking a different route. Usually, DCTV shows are filmed in Canada. However, the studio might be planning to film Metropolis in New York.
As for the storyline, Lois Lane and Lex Luthor will lead the show. It will be set in a time before the arrival of Superman. Together, the two leading characters will explore the world of fringe science as they uncover some long-buried secrets of the city.
“Set in the so-called City of Tomorrow before the arrival of Superman, Metropolis follows Lois Lane and Lex Luthor as they investigate the world of fringe science and expose the city’s dark and bizarre secrets,” reads the description for Metropolis as mentioned by the aforementioned publication.
Meanwhile, the details about the cast and crew are yet to be revealed. However, with the filming schedule starting soon, it won’t be too long before we get to know who will portray Lois Lane and Lex Luthor and which other important characters are in the series.
Gotham’s executive producers John Stephens and Danny Cannon will be heading the series. Stephens will develop the series while Cannon will implement it as a director. The show will consist of 13 episodes. However, it remains unsure whether the streaming service will follow Netflix pattern of releasing the episodes in one go or will it be aired like a regular television show.
There is no set release date for the series. Metropolis is expected to premiere sometime in 2018 or 2019 on DC Digital Service. Keep visiting Pursue News for more information and updates.
