When Warner Bros./DC Entertainment debuted the name of their upcoming DC related streaming platform (DC Universe) along with the logos for their original programming, there was one series that was missing. That would be the Lex Luthor & Lois Lane starring Metropolis prequel, that was ordered to series back in January.
It wasn’t part of the announcement because it has been delayed.
According to Deadline, the series set before Superman makes his debut in the gleaming City of Tomorrow has been placed into redevelopment, with no word on what exactly Warner Bros. is hoping to retool. Originally the series was said to focus on Lex and Lois as they “they investigate the world of fringe science and expose the city’s dark and bizarre secrets.”
Originally Metropolis was set to debut in 2019, but there is no word if the redevelopment will actually delay its debut in any significant way. Since we didn’t know an actual date in 2019, we might actually never know if it does or not.
Once it does debut the series will join the live-action Titans, the live-action James Wan produced Swamp Thing, the revived third season of Young Justice: Outsiders and an animated Harley Quinn series starring Margot Robbie.
