Some big news from us on what's coming up next in live-action from Millarworld, peeps! pic.twitter.com/usEuwVNHei— Millarworld (@mrmarkmillar) June 2, 2021
Supercrooks: The Heist is part of the same universe as Jupiter’s Legacy, and appears to be a “solution” found by Netflix to explore this entire Millarworld saga – the comic book label written by Mark Millar – in a different way, as the series has received numerous reviews of the rhythm and look of the heroes.
With eight episodes, the first season of Jupiter’s Legacy follows the children of the greatest superheroes in history trying to live up to their parents, although they live in an increasingly complex world.
With a cast of Josh Duhamel, Leslie Bibb, Ben Daniels, Elena Kampouris, Andrew Horton, Mike Wade and Matt Lanter, the first season of the superhero series is now available on Netflix.
