A teaser trailer for Jupiter’s Legacy has ascended! Netflix’s live-action adaptation of Mark Millar and Frank Quitely’s epic graphic novel series may just be the next The Boys or Watchmen, if all goes well.

Watch the Josh Duhamel-narrated teaser for Jupiter’s Legacy now:
For those unfamiliar with the upcoming series, according to the streaming giant, “Jupiter’s Legacy is an epic superhero drama that spans decades and navigates the complex dynamics of family, power, and loyalty. After nearly a century of keeping mankind safe, the world’s first generation of superheroes must look to their children to continue the legacy. But tensions rise as the young superheroes, hungry to prove their worth, struggle to live up to their parents’ legendary public reputations — and exacting personal standards.”
The exciting “superhero drama” stars Josh Duhamel (Transformers) as Sheldon Sampson; Leslie Bibb (American Housewife) as Grace Sampson; Ben Daniels (The Exorcist) as Walter Sampson; Elena Kampouris (Sacred Lies) as Chloe Sampson; Andrew Horton (How to Talk to Girls at Parties) as Brandon Sampson; Mike Wade as Fitz Small; and Matt Lanter (Timeless) as George Hutchene.
