This May, Netflix will release a new superhero series, based on the comics by Mark Millar. The series is called Jupiter’s Legacy and it’s the first series since Millar struck a deal with the streaming giant in 2018. The series stars Josh Duhamel (Transformers) and follows the children of first-generation superheroes and the unimaginable weight they must bear to follow in their parents footsteps.
Today, Netflix released the first teaser for the series. Unfortunately, it doesn’t give us much insight into the series itself, but has a nice voiceover from Duhamel likely talking to one of these up-and-coming heroes.
The synopsis for Jupiter’s Legacy is as follows:
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.
In addition Duhamel, Jupiter’s Legacy stars Leslie Bibb (Iron Man), Ben Daniels (The Crown), Elena Kampouris (Sacred Lies), Andrew Horton (How to Talk to Girls at Parties), Mike Wade (For the People), and Matt Lanter (Timeless).
Jupiter’s Legacy will release on Netflix May 7, 2021.
