“Living up to your parents’ expectations is hard, but it’s even harder when you have superpowers. Netflix’s upcoming live-action comic book adaptation Jupiter’s Legacy is arriving on May 7th, and IGN’s Fan Fest brings both original comics creator, Mark Millar, and star, Josh Duhamel (Sheldon Sampson / The Utopian), to talk about everything that goes into faithfully adapting this complex, multi-generational story about family. 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. From executive producers Mark Millar, Frank Quitely, Lorenzo Di Bonaventura, Dan McDermott, Steven S. DeKnight, James Middleton, Sang Kyu Kim, Jupiter’s Legacy stars Josh Duhamel, Leslie Bibb, Ben Daniels, Elena Kampouris, Andrew Horton, Mike Wade, Matt Lanter and Tenika Davis.”
