It’s been a minute since we heard anything about the upcoming series adaptation of Jupiter’s Legacy. Well, Mark Millar has given fans a bit of an update. He’s met with Netflix to check out trailers, and he’s apparently very pleased with what he has seen.
Plus, he and Frank Quietly (the artist for the comic) are releasing the series in four volumes next month for fans to enjoy. Also, according to Bleeding Cool, it has been confirmed that Ian Quinlan (Gotham) will be playing Hutch Hutchence.
Based on the critically-acclaimed Image Comics series, Jupiter’s Legacy focuses on the world’s first generation of superheroes who received their powers in the 1930s. In the present day, they are the revered elder guard – while their superpowered children struggle to live up to the legendary feats of their parents.
Sang Kyu Kim is serving as showrunner for the series that stars Josh Duhamel (Transformers), Ben Daniels (The Crown), Leslie Bibb (Tag), Elena Kampouris (Sacred Lies), Andrew Horton (How to Talk to Girls at Parties), Matt Lanter (Timeless), and Mike Wade. Are you excited to see Jupiter’s Legacy?
The book, of course, is by Frank Quitely and I and will be released as 4 volumes next month, collecting the prequel storyline too as this is a major part of the show. Art by @mightyfineline & the best comics has to offer! pic.twitter.com/ZchU7dkPwQ
