It took the cast and crew of Jupiter’s Legacy almost three months of prep to bring the epic battle on the hilltop to life. The first generation of superheroes have kept the world safe for nearly a century. Now their children must live up to their legacy. From the mind of Mark Millar, Jupiter’s Legacy is now streaming, only on Netflix.
Jupiter’s Legacy is an superhero streaming television series developed by Steven S. DeKnight, based on the Imagecomic book series by Mark Millar and Frank Quitely, that premiered on Netflix on May 7, 2021. The series stars Josh Duhamel, Ben Daniels, Leslie Bibb, Elena Kampouris, Andrew Horton, Mike Wade and Matt Lanter.
In the mid-20th century, former businessman Sheldon Sampson travels to an uncharted island in the Atlantic Ocean, where he, his brother Walter, and four others receive superpowers. He then creates a superhero team, and his guiding ideals – never kill anyone, never interfere in political matters – remain unchanged over the near-century of his adventures as The Utopian.
However, the next generation of superheroes, including his children, struggles to live up to his rigid ideals and high expectations. When Sheldon’s son, Brandon, seemingly kills one of their greatest foes, it ignites a public debate over whether those ideals are still relevant.
