Mark Millar & Frank Quitely’s Superhero Series “Jupiter’s Legacy” Is Coming To Netflix

Netflix has lifted the cowl on “Jupiter’s Legacy.” The streaming service’s upcoming television adaptation of Mark Millar and Frank Quitely’s superhero magazine series. The streamer revealed the trailer for the show on Wednesday. The plot of the streamer’s eight-episode “Jupiter’s Legacy” springs from Millar’s magazine series. Which was first published in 2013. The first magazine, the plot of which spanned decades, centered on the world’s first generation of superheroes and their children. Who are expected to hold on to their parents’ legacy.

Much like Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s “The Boys”, the first “Jupiter’s Legacy” carved a distinct segment for itself. Especially during a crowded genre by using superheroes to look at social, political, and economic issues within the US. The new trailer for Netflix’s adaptation offers a glance at the series’ heroes, also as their various superpowers.

Netflix’s synopsis for the upcoming television adaptation reads:

“After nearly a century of keeping mankind safe, the world’s first generation of superheroes must look to their children to continue the legacy. But tensions rise because the young superheroes, hungry to prove their worth, struggle to measure up to their parents’ legendary public reputations — and exacting personal standards.”

The series stars Josh Duhamel, Leslie Bibb, Ben Daniels, Elena Kampouris, Andrew Horton, Mike Wade, and Matt Lanter. Executive producers include Millar, Quitely, Lorenzo Di Bonaventura, Dan McDermott, Steven S. DeKnight, James Middleton, and Sang Kyu Kim.

“Jupiter’s Legacy” is that the latest during a string of adaptations of Millar’s work. The “Kick-Ass” and “Kick-Ass 2” films, which released in 2010 and 2013, respectively, were adapted from Millar’s comics, as were the four “Kingsman” films, the newest of which is slated to premiere in August. 2015’s ill-fated “Fantastic Four” film was also supported a Millar comic, as were the well-received “Captain America: Civil War” and “Logan” films.

Netflix has premiered a couple of other superhero shows over a previous couple of years, including “The Umbrella Academy,” which has been renewed for a 3rd season at the streamer, also as Marvel Cinematic Universe titles like “Daredevil” and “Jessica Jones”
