Jupiter’s Legacy Teaser Trailer Reveals the Launch Date of the Netflix Superhero Sequence

Netflix has released the shortest teaser trailer for Jupiter’s legacy, the streaming service’s upcoming superhero series based on the graphic novel by Mark Millar and illustrator Frank Quitely. While the teaser does not include any actual footage outside of a swirling CGI cloak, it does include a release date (May 7, 2021) and narration courtesy of Josh DuhamelDulcet tones. Could be worse!

“One day you will be stronger than anyone else in the world,” says Duhamel’s character. “Every evil you can imagine will rise against humanity, not out of justice but out of vengeance. And you will be the future.”

That fits with Jupiter’s legacy tale, in which an older generation of costumed heroes look to a younger class of supermen to carry the burden only to face an overpowering clash of ideals and methods. On the streets it is said that Netflix gave it its all – which says something given the fleet of streamer’s money tippers – and the result should be the kind of superhero epic we’ve gotten used to over the past decade. This also makes sense for Netflix, which wants to build its own gigantic MCU franchise based on the works of Mark Millar and his “Millarworld”. If done right, Jupiter’s legacy could be the stepping stone.

The series also plays the lead role Leslie Bibb (Ironman), Ben Daniels (The crown), Elena Kampouris (Holy lies) Andrew Horton (How to talk to girls at parties) Mike Wade (For the people) and Matt Lanter (Timeless).

Check out the trailer below. Jupiter’s Legacy, which is slated for eight episodes, will be released on Netflix on May 7, 2021.


Here is the official recap of Jupiter’s legacy:

After nearly a century of human security, the world’s first generation of superheroes must look to their children to continue the legacy. But tensions mount as the young superheroes, hungry to prove their worth, struggle to live up to their parents’ legendary public reputation – and demand personal standards.
