Netflix seem to be gearing up to fight. They have their Vaseline out, their spit bucket ready and these quick jabs and uppercuts for their warm-up is an obvious nod to them stating, they have been here, they were here and they are not going down without a fight. "What do you mean?" I hear you ask. Well, Netflix IS king of the digital streaming services (according to Tom's guide) and right behind it is HBO Max and Disney Plus, with them launching 27th May 2020 and 12th November 2019 respectively. But being soo long in the game and also having "borrowed" or "rented" content over the years, especially from Disney and these have now been taken back, Netflix are forced to provide more original content and Jupiter's Legacy is just that.
While we are being over saturated with Superhero shows, this genre is what people want to watch, like Amazon's The Boys or Disney Plus' new MCU TV content. And although the Mouse house has very deep pockets and are throwing out some jabs and haymakers, Netflix are standing firm as this trailer looks great. Yes the special effects are not Disney Quality and the style isn't as gritty as The Boys, but as long as the show delivers 'Umbrella Academy quality', I can see this series doing very well, especially as it was written by Mark Miller, the man behind The Kingsman: The Secret Service and Kick-Ass among many others. Fun fact, Steven S. DeKnight was behind the Netflix MCU series Dare Devil, Smallville, Angel AND the film Pacific Rim: Uprising - the show has a lot of promise.
Directed by Steven S. DeKnight, Josh Duhamel, Ben Daniels, Leslie Bibb, Elena Kampouris, Andrew Horton, Mike Wade & Matt Lanter.
