FROM THE PAGES TO THE BIG SCREEN - Millarworld's Jupiter's Legacy is currently shooting in Toronto (starring @joshduhamel @mslesliebibb @bendanielsss) and the superhero series is expected to debut exclusively on Netflix in early 2020.
After word that Disney was starting their own streaming service (Disney+) and taking all Marvel properties in house, Netflix signed a deal with Mark Millar's Millarworld Ltd. (founded in 2004 under Image Comics - creator of Wanted, Kingsman and Kick-Ass) to fill their superhero void.
Much like Amazon's #TheBoys
, JUPITER'S LEGACY explores a world ruled by super heros and the implications that come with that. The book focuses on Chloe and Brandon, the offspring of the world's greatest heroes, Sheldon and Grace Sampson. Can both siblings ever fill their parent's shoes?
Originally released in 2015, co-created by Mark Millar (writer) and the brilliant Frank Quitely (artist - Batman and Robin, All-Star Superman). Colours and letters by Peter Doherty.
JUPITER'S CIRCLE is the prequel, showing the original hero's struggles in their early days of crime fighting. Lonely, Alcoholic, Cheater, Perfect...even they were young once. Written by Mark Millar and pencilled by Wilfredo Torres and Davide Gianfelice.
Also in the works, but to be released as a movie is EMPRESS. An action packed space opera focusing on Queen Emporia and her young family on the run from a murderous dictator...her Husband King Morax. An epic tale spanning dangerous worlds and creatures all while avoiding detection under the care of loyal guard Dane and ex-soldier Tor.
Empress was published in 2017 and written by Mark Millar and pencilled by Canadian artist Stuart Immonen (All-New X-Men, Superman: Secret Identity). Colours by Ive Svorcina and letters by Peter Doherty.
