Thanks Brady! I'm glad you're liking my idea so far! I am considering expanding it and making it better. This was just an draft of an idea i came up with but i am feeling more confident now and am gonna do my best at making this an awesome series hopefully hah. Yeah i know 22 is a lot of work and can be a lot but hmm i'm unsure. i will prob keep it being at least 13 to be smart. can always lengthen the second season if it makes it that far ha.

Yeah, what Brady said. I'd definitely recommend keeping it at 12-13 for now. 22 episode seasons are definitely doable, proven by Jack with Watchtower, but he's not human so you have to keep that under consideration.

Im in love with this pitch. I honestly can't wait to see how Superman can fit into the ongoing flarrowverse.lol The cast of characters are fantastic and im already loving this revitalized Lana Lang!! I can totally see Nina Dobrev as Lana. I also can't wait to see how you pull of Lex's ascension to evil

thanks for the comments Karl, means a lot! i'm currently am revising the pitch around a little. I am excited about this version of Lana as well. We both know Lana is my fav character so i must make her epic or fail trying HA. I don't want this to be the typical Superman story so i am gonna try to make him original and yet still true to what Superman represents.

City of Tomorrow
Metropolis. The city of Tomorrow. A city where dreams come true. Where glamour and riches rule and the poor and weak lose. A city without a savior. Without a beacon of hope...that is until now. Ruled by various crime families and shrouded in corruption behind all the pretty lights and bliss. Beneath it the glowing radiance which is the heartfelt fast moving city lays an undertone of death, mayhem, sex and lost souls. A place named by the very substance which it is made up...Suicide Slums. A place no man wants to travel...yet no soul can escape. Until now it was a city without promise, a city that swallows you from the inside...until a Clark Kent..our savior...our last hope makes his mark...yet is the world ready for a Superman?

(Okay guys here is my revise pitch! Gonna go for the full 22 episode season and here to it goes well! *crosses fingers* A few changes here and there took out Nathan from being a series regular for this season. He will most likely come into the second half of this season. )
Post by Brian Melanson on May 9, 2015 21:25:47 GMT -6
Okay, so at first glance, I was like, oh no. But taking a nice look at it, I was very intrigued by the whole, how this is kinda a new twist on the Smallville series, that I know a lot of people love! But how you will intergrate it into the Arrow/Flash Universe, makes it even more exciting for me. I love the casting choices as well.
But again, great work, especially for a first pitch, can't wait to see more, and I do like the title. Will read the pilot when it comes out and will leave a review for you when it does. But from what I can tell, it's going to be great. Good luck !!!
Post by R.A. Picking on Aug 1, 2015 11:48:54 GMT -6
Yes. From someone that really liked 'Smallville' I'm going to say that I'm willing to check this out and I hope you're working on a pilot episode or I hope I didn't miss it in the pilot - and by the way A+ on Evan Peters as Lex.
