Netflix has released the first live-action trailer for Jupiter’s Legacy, which it previously teased back in February with a CGI and voiceover-driven spot. The show will arrive quite soon, and first impressions suggest we’re in for a wild ride.
Jupiter’s Legacy is based on a comic series by Mark Millar the Scottish graphic novelist whose previous work includes Kick-Ass and Kingsman: The Secret Service. Millar is also well-known for DC comics work on Superman: Red Son. At Marvel he penned The Ultimates, an alternative-reality reworking of The Avengers.

Millar has been a ball of energy on Twitter, he’s clearly extremely excited to see what people make of this show and he appears to be pleased with how Netflix has treated it. In its press materials Netflix says “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.”
