Netflix has shared the first official trailer for its new 8-episode superhero series Jupiter’s Legacy, a TV adaptation of the popular comic book series by writer Mark Millar (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Kick-Ass) and illustrator Frank Quitely.
Jupiter’s Legacy follows a multi-generational superhero squad called ‘The Union’ who are reckoning with various types of existential crises. The older members grappling with their age as their children eclipse them, while the younger generation are struggling to create their own identities after spending years in the shadow of their elders.
Josh Duhamel stars as the group’s leader Sheldon Sampson (aka The Utopian), with Ben Daniels as Sheldon’s brother Walter Sampson (aka Brainwave), Leslie Bibb as Sheldon’s wife Grace Sampson, and Elena Kampouris as Grace and Sheldon’s daughter Chloe Sampson.
Jupiter’s Legacy will arrive on Netflix on May 7th. You can check out the trailer – here.
