DeKnight (Marvel’s Daredevil, Spartacus, Buffy the Vampire Slayer), confirms Josh Duhamel (Transformers; Transformers: The Last Knight) as Sheldon Sampson/The Utopian; Ben Daniels (The Crown; The Exorcist; Flesh and Bone) as Walter Sampson/Brain-Wave, Sheldon’s older brother; Leslie Bibb (Tag; GCB; Iron Man) as Grace Sampson/Lady Liberty; and Elena Kampouris (Sacred Lies; upcoming Shoplifters of the World and Summer Night) and Andrew Horton (Doctors; How to Talk to Girls at Parties) as Sheldon and Grace’s children Chloe and Brandon.

Among the first slate of series and movies based on the stories of Mark Millar and based on the graphic novels of the same name by Millar and artist Frank Quitely, Jupiter’s Legacy follows the world’s first generation of superheroes who received their powers in the 1930s. Now, in present day, they are the revered elder guard, but their superpowered children struggle to live up to the legendary feats of their parents.

Steven S. DeKnight serves as showrunner and executive producer, with Mark Millar, Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Dan McDermott, and Frank Quitely, also serving as executive producers for the series. DeKnight also will write and direct the first episode.

Specific character details are below:

JOSH DUHAMEL is Sheldon Sampson.

Sheldon Sampson (The Utopian) is the storied leader of the superhero team The Union. But times have changed, and he doesn’t understand the world we live in anymore. Or his own family.

BEN DANIELS is Walter Sampson.

Walter Sampson (Brain-Wave) is Sheldon’s older brother. A man of vast intellect and cunning who, unlike Sheldon, isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty. Or bloody.

LESLIE BIBB is Grace Sampson.

Grace Sampson (Lady Liberty) is Sheldon’s wife and one of the most powerful heroes on the planet. She doesn’t always agree with Sheldon, but strives to balance his ideals with the reality of the modern, often violent, world they live in.

ELENA KAMPOURIS is Chloe Sampson.

Chloe Sampson is Grace and Sheldon’s daughter. Rejecting everything her parents stand for, Chloe has forged her own hedonistic path far away from them. A path that threatens to go against everything her parents have sworn to protect.

ANDREW HORTON is Brandon Sampson.

Brandon Sampson is Grace and Sheldon’s son. In training to assume the mantle of The Utopian and become the new leader of The Union, he struggles to live up to his father’s mythic legend.

MIKE WADE is Fitz Small.

Fitz Small (The Flare) is the heart and soul of The Union. Despite suffering injuries that ended his career as a superhero, he continues to be one of the most valued members of the team. And is often the only thing holding them together in the face of an increasingly hostile world.

MATT LANTER is George Hutchence.

George Hutchence (Skyfox) was Sheldon Sampson's closest friend and ally before turning against him and the rest of his teammates in The Union. Now considered the greatest supervillain in the world, George plots his revenge on the teammates he believes betrayed him.

Millarworld, a subsidiary of Netflix, is an entertainment company run by Mark and Lucy Millar. Millarworld’s comic book franchises, like Wanted, Kingsman, Reborn, Empress, Kick-Ass, Jupiter’s Legacy and many others, have achieved huge success as global franchises ranging across publishing, cinema, clothing, video-games and toys over the past fourteen years. In his years at Marvel, Mark wrote some of the biggest-selling books of this generation, massively influencing the Marvel Cinematic Universe. His book, The Ultimates, was named by Time Magazine as Comic Book Of The Decade and his Superman opus, Red Son, is the best-selling Superman graphic novel of all time.

Collider has exclusively revealed that Josh Duhamel (Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G., Love, Simon, 11.22.63), Leslie Bibb (American Housewife, Tag, GCB), Andrew Horton (How to Talk to Girls at Parties), Elena Kampouris (Sacred Lies, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, American Odyssey), Ben Daniels (The Exorcist, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, The Crown) and Matt Lanter (Timeless, 90210, Pitch Perfect 3) have been cast in the upcoming Netflix series, Jupiter's Legacy, a multi-generational American superhero epic based on the stories of Mark Millar.

Netflix acquired Millarworld last year with multiple projects being developed including Jupiter's Legacy, American Jesus and more for the digital screen. As soon as Netflix confirms I will update this post (Collider is pretty reliable with castings anyways). It shouldn't be too long anyways as production begins March 8 per Production Weekly.

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.

Multiple sources tell Collider that Josh Duhamel and Leslie Bibb will play the two married leads, with Andrew Horton and Elena Kampouris playing their children, and Ben Daniels and Matt Lanter playing Duhamel's brother and best friend, respectively.


Josh Duhamel will play Sheldon Sampson, aka The Utopian. An amazingly powerful superhero who's also the longtime leader of the Union of Justice.

Leslie Bibb will play Grace Sampson, aka Lady Liberty. A powerful goddess who fights evil alongside her husband Sheldon but is concerned about the growing rift between him and their two children.

Elena Kampouris will play Chloe, their super-powered daughter who is also a hard-partying professional model.

Andrew Horton will play Brandon Sampson, aka Paragon, a budding young superhero who idolizes his father but struggles to live up to his greatness.

Ben Daniels will play Walter Sampson, aka Brainwave, a loner who can create psychic illusions that serve him well in combat. He's a doting uncle to Chloe and Brandon, but he has a strained relationship with his headstrong brother, Sheldon.

Matt Lanter will play George Hutchence, aka Skyfox, Sheldon's best friend and a fellow founding member of the Union of Justice.

Steven S. DeKnight (Marvel's Daredevil, Spartacus, Buffy the Vampire Slayer), who recently signed an overall deal with Netflix, will serve as showrunner and executive producer, with Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Dan McDermott also serving as executive producers for the series. DeKnight will write and direct the first episode.


Sources say that Netflix plans to officially announce the cast early next week.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.
