Evolving the superhero genre
Though aimed at the vast genre following, Dark Rising is not intended as another populist Marvel / DC iteration. Rather, a hyper-realist tone, a global scope and a cinematic vision will set the show apart, with the grand ambition of provoking debate on human virtue itself.
By evolving beyond the comic-style caricatures of The CW staples, and by always setting character conflicts within a backdrop of contemporary global issues, Dark Rising aims to become television’s first authentic superhero show. Its world may be wild and cruel, but ultimately proves allegorical and hopeful, inviting a fresh exploration of what it means to wield power as a human being.
