For anyone who knows, Mark Millar has penned some pretty popular comic book series such as

The Ultimates,
Marvel Knights Spider-Man,
Ultimate Fantastic Four,
Kingsman: The Secret Service,
and Kick-Ass.

A few of those titles might seem familiar since they hit up the silver screen. Including two movies based on his work, Captain America: Civil War and Old Man Logan.

He's worked for both DC and Marvel, and now, he's distributing scripts for comic-to-TV series on Netflix! Now Netflix is looking to produce some stories presented by Millar...

What happened was tha Netflix bought Millarworld, Millar's own production house. Netflix went on to publish their first ever comic book, The Magic Order, when became the biggest selling new comic-book in 20 years.

Now, they're looking to crank out some new content from Millar, one of which is

Jupiter's Legacy is about a new generation of super heroes who are children of 30s era heroes, as they try to live up to their parents achievements. The show will be run and exec produced by Steven S. DeKnight, who has also signed up with Netflix. His resume includes some amazing shows, like Starz Spartacus, Netflix's Daredevil and Joss Whedon's Buffy The Vampire Slayer. His latter work has been dark and motivating.

But we won't be seeing this series until 2021.


Other new projects which are movies or comics, include American Jesus, Empress, Huck and Sharkey the Bounty Hunter.

I can't wait to see what they all look like.
