Mark Millar is one of the most prolific comic book writers working today, and a great deal of his work has been adapted into television shows and films. You're probably already familiar with Kick-Ass, Wanted, and Kingsman, but there are many more of his books from his company, Millarworld Limited that have found their way to an adaptation of one form or another.

Millar's works have dominated the independent comic book market, but now that Netflix has acquired Millarworld, more and more of his works like The Magic Order and several others are being made into shows and movies. Fans of Millar's comics could do little more than celebrate the news of Netflix's acquisition of Millarworld, and 2020 promises to let fans reap the benefits with these potentially amazing adaptations.

Check back as more Millar projects are announced and you can vote on those too.

    Jupiter’s Legacy

    Format: Television Series

    Synopsis: "The world's first generation of superheroes are revered, but their superpowered children struggle to live up to the legendary feats of their parents."

    Air Date: 2020

    Details: Jupiter's Legacy was first published as a limited series in 2012, and by 2015, it had some momentum to become a feature film series, but the project never fully materialized. In 2018, Neflix announced that a series was in development with Steven S. DeKnight acting as showrunner.

    Netflix has yet to announce the series' air date, but a list of castmembers was revealed by Deadline Hollywood. The show will star Ian Quinlan as Hutch, Anna Akana as Raikou, Tyler Mane as Blackstar, Matthew MacFadzean as Roscoe, Stephen Oyoung as Barry Bishop, Josh Duhamel as Sheldon Sampson, and Leslie Bibb as Grace Sampson.
