Jupiter's Legacy (Netflix)

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.

Jupiter’s Legacy is a multigenerational drama that follows the world’s first generation of superheroes, who received their powers in the 1930s. In the present day, they’re the revered elder guard, but their superpowered children struggle to live up to the legendary feats of their parents.

The series will star Josh Duhamel (Transformers) as Sheldon Sampson/The Utopian, Ben Daniels as Walter Sampson/Brainwave, Leslie Bibb as Grace Sampson/Lady Liberty, Elena Kampouris as Chloe Sampson, Andrew Horton as Brandon Sampson/Paragon, Mike Wade as Fitz Small and Matt Lanter as George Hutchene/Skyfox.

The project was created and executive produced by Steven S. DeKnight, best known for showrunning Daredevil’s inaugural season. He was previously attached to serve as the showrunner. However, due to creative differences, he exited the series with Sang Kyu Kim taking over as the showrunner.

Currently rated 36% at Rotten Tomatoes with 36 critic reviews counted. Audience Score at 74%.

Critics Consensus:  Despite some truly epic fights, Jupiter's Legacy is simply too overstuffed and slow-moving to land many narrative punches.

I managed to finished this yesterday.  Not quite as engaging as The Boys or Invincible.  The Chloe character is hot, though her character is annoying as hell.  I guess I'm really not fond of Hollywood's angsty, rebellious kid trope.

It's just ok. But pales in comparison to The Boys, Invincible, etc.

Definitely it's far inferior than The Boys and Invincible but I would like to see a second season.

I liked it.  But if you're looking for a hardcore superhero show, yes it's not it.  It's more of a family drama, conspiracy, character driven show.

‘Jupiter’s Legacy’ Netflix Series Releases Cast as Streamer Orders ‘Supercrooks’ Live-Action Show

Netflix has released the cast of “Jupiter’s Legacy,” effectively bringing the show to an end after one season. At the same time, the streamer has ordered a live-action adaptation of Mark Millar’s “Supercrooks” to series.

“Super Crooks” is set within the same world as “Jupiter’s Legacy” and will follow supervillains just as “Jupiter’s Legacy” followed superheroes, with Netflix positioning the new show as the next installment in an anthology series. There is also a “Supercrooks” anime series coming at Netflix, which is due to launch later this year with a first look at Annecy Festival

^  Too bad they are not moving forwards with an immediate Season 2 to Jupiter's Legacy due to the poor ratings. I liked the show enough to follow it to another season. As mentioned here, it's not as good as other superhero shows such as The Boys or Invincible, but I do find it way better than the CW DC shows.

BTW it is worth noting that the upcoming follow-up, "Supercrooks", will be based on the Mark Millar written comic books drawn by Filipino artist, Leinil Francis Yu.  ;)

Netflix has this tendency to drop shows at the drop of a hat, so I can't say I'm surprised.  It was not the best superhero show out there, but, I would have wanted to see where the show was headed considering most of the first season was just practically into world-building.
