Eager to get a new superhero into the lineup — especially after “Smallville” ended its 10-season run earlier this year — the CW has tapped "Supernatural" creator Eric Kripke to develop a show based on the DC Comics series "Deadman," reports Deadline.com.

Kripke will write and executive produce the project, which is about the spirit of a murdered man, Boston Brand, which continues to live by inhabiting other people’s bodies.

The project is produced by Warner Bros. TV, which is working on the DC catalog for TV shows.

"Supernatural" is starting its seventh season this fall.

  1. They had an Aquaman pilot a few years ago. They should have gone forward with that.
    Plus, a known property is what the CW needs. Not a No-Name comic character.
    Wonder Woman would be perfect for THE CW’s core audience. Take a different angle with the franchise, not just a Busty, Hot female in a skimpy costume.
