Millarworld took to Twitter today to drop some pretty bummer news. While they don’t outright say that Jupiter’s Legacy has been canceled, they shared that Netflix has released the cast from their contracts. While I thoroughly enjoyed the superhero series, I can completely understand many people’s issues with pacing and being thrown between two different stories. But, its focus on the heroes’ personal lives and family tensions is what truly drew me in.
Now Mark Millar is hopeful that we aren’t saying goodbye forever and we will eventually see a return to Jupiter’s Legacy. However, in the meantime, they are working on a live-action series of Millar’s series with artist Leinil Yu, Supercrooks. It has been described as a mix of X-Men and Ocean’s Eleven. It follows a group of thieves, you know the super crooks, as they go on a heist after one of their members tries to cheat a major mob in Vegas.
This isn’t the first adaptation of Supercrooks that we will see. Netflix has already announced that they are working on an anime with Studio Bones set to come out soon. Millarworld shared that this is still in the works and that we can expect to see it later this year. I’m absolutely torn on this news. I loved Jupiter’s Legacy, yet I am excited to dive into Supercrooks. I have been looking forward to the new anime series and now the prospects of a live-action have been really excited.
Let’s hope Millarworld is right and we do get the chance to return to Jupiter’s Legacy at some point in the future. If you haven’t gotten the chance to watch this series, I highly suggest doing so. It can be found here on Netflix. How do you feel about this news? Let us know in the comments below and on social media!
