Netflix Announces First Cast Members For Jupiter’s Legacy

Netflix has begun putting the cast together for its adaptation of Mark Millar and Frank Quitely’s Jupiter’s Legacy. According to Collider, Josh Duhamel and Leslie Bibb have been tapped to lead the series as The Utopian and Lady Liberty, respectively.

Millar and Quitely began publishing Jupiter’s Legacy in 2013. In the series, The Utopian and Lady Liberty are the costumed aliases of Sheldon and Grace Sampson. After venturing to a mysterious island with a handful of their friends in 1932, they gained superhuman abilities and established themselves as the first generation of superheroes. They soon formed the Union of Justice. Years later, Sheldon and Grace had two children, Chloe and Brandon, who inherited their own set of powers. However, Chloe and Brandon also developed a cynical attitude toward superheroes and struggled to find their places in the shadow of their famous parents.

Andrew Horton will co-star as Brandon, who operates under the name Paragon. Unfortunately, he isn’t purely altruistic. Instead, he uses his superhero status to achieve lucrative endorsement deals. Elena Kampouris plays Chloe, a troubled model with a fondness for drugs and the nightclub scene. Other cast members include Ben Daniels as Sheldon’s psychic brother Walter, a.k.a. Brainwave, and Matt Lanter as Sheldon’s best friend George Hutchence / Skyfox. Both characters were founding members of the Union of Justice.

Steven S. DeKnight, best known for showrunning Daredevil’s inaugural season, will assume the same role for Jupiter’s Legacy. DeKnight will also write and direct the pilot episode. Additionally, DeKnight will executive produce the series alongside Millar, Lorenzo Di Bonaventura, and Dan McDermott.

‘Jupiter’s Legacy’: Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight Exits As Filming Of Netflix Series Continues

There is a change at the helm of Netflix’s upcoming epic superhero series Jupiter’s Legacy, I have learned. Steven S. DeKnight has stepped down as showrunner over creative differences. Search is underway for a replacement.

I hear the showrunner change comes around half-way through production of the eight-episode first season as filming on about four episodes has been completed.

Sources say there are no plans for the series to go on hiatus until a new showrunner is named, with efforts made for continuous production and a smooth transition. When that person comes onboard, the new creative team will likely examine the existing footage and set a creative direction before any decisions are made on possible reshoots.
