After launching the marketing campaign for Jupiter’s Legacy earlier this month, Netflix has now shared another image from its upcoming adaptation of the Mark Millar superhero comic book series which sees Josh Duhamel’s The Utopian taking on the supervillain Blackstar, played by X-Men’s Tyler Mane; take a look here via Empire…
“It’s a 50-year story self-contained inside one franchise,” states Millar with regards to the upcoming series. “It’s got a cast of 50 or 60 super-characters. The story starts in 1929 and runs until the end of time. It runs through all time and space and explains the mystery of human existence, all tied into a superhero story.”
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 as the young superheroes, hungry to prove their worth, struggle to live up to their parents’ legendary public reputations — and exacting personal standards. Based on the graphic novels by Mark Millar and Frank Quitely, Jupiter’s Legacy is an epic superhero drama that spans decades and navigates the complex dynamics of family, power, and loyalty.
Jupiter’s Legacy arrives on Netflix on May 7th and stars Josh Duhamel, Leslie Bibb, Ben Daniels, Elena Kampouris, Andrew Horton, Mike Wade, and Matt Lanter.
