We've gotten out first look at photos from Netflix's upcoming superhero series Jupiter's Legacy. Ahead of its release on May 7, the streaming service has published a series of images from the forthcoming show, along with a teaser video of sorts that shows the various characters coming to life.

The images give us a first look at the main cast of Jupiter's Legacy. The first image shows Josh Duhamel and Leslie Bibb as veteran superhero spouses Sheldon and Grace Sampson (aka The Utopian and Lady Liberty), and Ben Daniels as Sheldon's brother Walter, aka Brainwave. Elsewhere, there's Andrew Horton and Elena Kampouris as Sheldon and Grace's children Brandon and Chloe, Ian Quinlan as Hutch, and Tyler Mane as the villainous Blackstar. Check them out below:

While we're yet to see any footage from the show, a teaser showing some of the characters being brought to life has also been released. This follows last week's first promo, which revealed the logo.

The series focuses on a group of aging superheroes who want to pass down their legacy to their super-powered children. But their kids have different ideas about how to live the superhero life, causing conflict with both their parents and some new villains. The 10-issue comic book series was published in 2013, and it was followed by the prequel series Jupiter's Circle in 2015.

Jupiter's Legacy is part of Millar's connected comic universe Millarworld. In 2017, Netflix bought the entire brand, and Jupiter's Legacy is the first show to emerge from the deal. The company subsequently announced a range of other upcoming Millarworld adaptations, including American Jesus, Empress, Huck, and Sharkey the Bounty Hunter.
