Watch The Jupiter’s Legacy Trailer

Netflix has unveiled the first trailerfor its upcoming superhero series Jupiter’s Legacy, based on Mark Millar and Frank Quitely’s comic book series. Starring Josh Duhamel, the series is set to hit the streaming platform on May 7.

Jupiter’s Legacy spans from the 1930s through to the present day and is based around the first generation of Superheroes, who rose to prominence after receiving their powers. Fast forward to the present day, the original heroes are revered as the elder guard, while the children of the fabled heroes are struggling to live up to their parent’s legacy and legendary feats.

The series stars Josh Duhamel (Transformers) as Sheldon Sampson/The Utopian, Ben Daniels (The Crown) as Walter Sampson/Brainwave, Leslie Bibb (The Babysitter: Killer Queen) as Grace Sampson/Lady Liberty, Elena Kampouris (Shoplifters of the World) as Chloe Sampson, Andrew Horton (It Came From the Desert) as Brandon Sampson/Paragon, Mike Wade (SEAL Team) as Fitz Small and Matt Lanter (Chasing the Rain) as George Hutchene/Skyfox.

Steven S. DeKnight, best known for showrunning Daredevil’s inaugural season, created and executive produces the series. He was previously attached to serve as the showrunner, but vacated the position due to creative differences, which Sang Kyu Kim later took over and serving as executive producer alongside Millar, Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and Dan McDermott.

The comic book series was first published by Image Comics in 2013. It followed The Utopian and Lady Liberty, who 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.
