Back in 2017, Netflix announced that the tech giant has acquired Millarworld, the comic-book company that was founded in 2014. It was originally founded by Mark Miller, who was behind Kick-Ass, Kingsman, and Old Man Logan. Mark Miller sold his comic-book company/universe for $31 million to Netflix. Jupiter’s Legacy is an upcoming Netflix Original series based on Mark Miller’s comics of the same name.
The series is being directed by former Daredevil producer and director “Steven S. DeKnight”. Daredevil and all other Marvel TV shows that aired on Netflix were canceled by Netflix. Soon after cancelation, Netflix introduced its own original show “Umbrella Academy”. Jupiter’s Legacy is said to be one of the best of Miller’s works and now it is getting a TV Series adaption by Netflix. Netflix chief content officer said about Mark Miller:
As creator and re-inventor of some of the most memorable stories and characters in recent history, ranging from Marvel’s The Avengers to Millarworld’s Kick-Ass, Kingsman, Wanted, and Reborn franchises, Mark is as close as you can get to a modern-day Stan Lee. We can’t wait to harness the creative power of Millarworld to Netflix and start a new era in global storytelling.
Netflix Jupiter’s Legacy Release Date
Netflix Jupiter’s Legacy is set to release on May 7th, 2021. This news was confirmed by Mark Miller himself.
