What’s the synopsis of Jupiter’s Legacy?
The live-action series depicts a world where being a superhero feels like a burden. It feels like a burden because it is actually a legacy; hence the name of the show. This whole process of passing down the duty throughout the generations creates a solid foundation for the series. It tells about superheroes in a very real way while also adding drama, failed expectations, and surprising twists.
The show was directed by Steven S.DeKnight who was also the producer of Daredevil. Jupiter’s Legacy cast consists of very talented names like Josh Duhamel, Leslie Bibb, Ben Daniels, and Elena Kampouris. Andrew Horton, Matt Lanter, Tenika Davis, Mike Wade, Tyler Mane are in the cast as well. And the show is expected to combine Jupiter’s Legacy comic series 1,2 with Jupiter’s Cycle 1,2.
Should you watch Jupiter’s Legacy?
You might have binge-watched lots of superhero-themed shows and movies. Or you are some who just doesn’t like people with superpowers and it all feels the same. Whether you’re the former or the latter, the series deserves a chance.
Because it offers enough to attract a superhero fan thanks to all that extraordinary super-stuff. But it is also realistic enough for a viewer who’s not into the good old superhero theme.
Here’s the official description of Jupiter’s Legacy:
“They’re the first generation of superheroes. But as they pass the torch to their children, tensions are rising – and the old rules no longer apply.”
