Netflix is Beginning Work on the Millarworld Properties and Casts Eric Bana in JUPITER'S LEGACY

Now that Marvel shows on Netflix are dropping like flies, Netflix is looking toward its next set of projects, namely the Millarworld properties.

These are adaptations of properties from legendary comic creator Mark Millar, and Jupiter’s Legacy looks to be at the top of the list. According to That Hashtag Show, there will be eight, one-hour episodes for the first season of the superhero show, and they are looking to begin production in 2019.

A multi-generational superhero epic, Jupiter’s Legacy follows the world’s first generation of superheroes who received their powers in the 1930s. In present day, they are the revered elder guard, but their superpowered children struggle to live up to the legendary feats of their parents.

The report also indicates that the studio is already looking at casting. Eric Bana and Pablo Schreiber are currently set to lead as Sheldon and Walter Sampson, aka The Utopian and Brainwave.

Rumor has it that Netflix is hoping to get either Morena Baccarin or Carrie Coon to play Grace, aka Lady Liberty, who is Sheldon’s wife. If they got Baccarin, I’d automatically watch at least the first episode.

How do you like the casting so far? Are you pleased to hear they’re working on the Millarworld projects now?
