Netflix isn’t going ahead with Season 2 of Legacy of Jupiter, which means that Mark Miller’s superhero show based on the comic of the same name will be another done-over venture. And an expensive one at that. As reports surfaced after the show’s unofficial cancellation, it is now revealed that it came with a massive $200 million budget. In a word? Ouch.
Jupiter’s legacy was meant to have multiple seasons and was seen as a way for Netflix to get into the superhero game, the way Amazon managed to do it with The Boys. Unfortunately, it didn’t end. As THR reports Borys Kit revealed on Twitter after the news broke, it was a truly disastrous business move for Netflix. In a series of tweets, here’s what he had to say about it.
“How bad were the Matrix? Legacy of Jupiter debuted on Netflix on May 7th and today, no one is using the word ‘canceled,’ the show is done. The cast is being released from their contracts. Jupiter’s Legacy, for many who didn’t see it, went on for several seasons and ended in a major reveal/cliffhanger. Mark Miller also launched a new 12 issue comic. But credit to Miller for Pirates , is moving on to its next comic adaptation (Supercrux) and making Jupiter’s Legacy a ‘universe’ and giving it an ‘anthology’ umbrella. Also, according to sources, Jupiter’s Legacy cost around $200 million, reshoots and Everything is included, so it’s a big loss.
As explained, the writer’s company Mark Miller and Millerworld, which was bought by Netflix in 2017, are cutting losses and moving forward.supercook Will be set in the same universe and effectively turn it into an anthology drama. But this $200 million figure is damning. The most expensive of expensive blockbusters rarely get anywhere near that range. We are talking about Avengers Money. While investing in that kind of change, let’s hope it continues to materialize for years to come.
Jupiter’s Legacy Focuses on the world’s first generation of superheroes. After nearly a century of keeping mankind safe, they are now looking to their children to continue that legacy. But tensions mount as young superheroes, hungry to prove their mettle, struggle to live up to their parents’ reputations. The cast includes Josh Duhamel, Leslie Bibb, Ben Daniels, Elena Comporis, Andrew Horton, Mike Wade, Matt Lanter and Ian Quinlan. Mark Miller, Frank Quitely, Lorenzo Di Bonaventura, Dan McDermott, Steven S. Dennight, James Middleton and Sang Kyu Kim served as the show’s executive producers.
The show holds a critical rating of about 38 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, but an audience score of a respectable 72 percent. Netflix still has a substantial investment in Millerworld. Other projects in the works in that universe include magic order and American Jesus as in the TV show, with reincarnation, empress, hawk, prodigy and Sharkey the Bounty Hunter In development as films.
