The official trailer has arrived for Jupiter’s Legacy, Netflix‘s next epic superhero series.
This is the first live-action Netflix series from the streamer’s Millarworld, adaptations of the comic book and graphic novel creations from writer Mark Millar (known for Kingsman: The Secret Service, Kick-Ass, Marvel Comics’ Civil War crossover, and Wanted, among many other titles).
Jupiter’s Legacy is set in a world in which the first generation of superheroes have kept mankind safe for almost a century. Tensions arise when young superheroes, looking to prove their worth and become heroes in their own right, struggle to live up to the legendary reputations achieved by their parents.
Josh Duhamel plays Sheldon Sampson, aka The Utopian, leader of superhero team The Union; Ben Daniels plays Sheldon’s older brother, Walter Sampson; Leslie Bibb is Grace Sampson, Sheldon’s wife and one of the most powerful heroes on the planet; Elena Kampouris is Chloe Sampson, Grace and Sheldon’s daughter; Andrew Horton is Brandon Sampson, Grace and Sheldon’s son; Mike Wade is Fitz Small, one of the most valued members of The Union; and Matt Lanter is George Hutchene, Sheldon’s closest ally.
Plenty of visual effects and what looks like an epic scope on display below. Following The Umbrella Academy, this has the potential to be the next big watercooler superhero show for the streaming giant. Looking forward to checking it out.
Jupiter’s Legacy, the first season of which holds 8 episodes, will be streaming on Netflix from May 7th.
