The trailer begins with a look back at when the superhero team first received their superhuman abilities while exploring a mysterious island. Looking back at the present, the group has aged significantly as they discuss what they have achieved and what they have not achieved over the years.
"Don't you remember the island and what we had to do to earn these powers?" Bibb's character Grace Sampson / Lady Liberty says in a voiceover, as Duhamel's Sheldon Sampson / The Utopian adds: “Ninety years. Ninety years, and what do we have to show for that? "
As Sheldon and Grace's son Brandon (Horton) points to his father's absence over the years due to his role in saving the world, the aging superhero tells Brandon and daughter Chloe (Kampouris), "All you do is a reflection on that family you have to be the ideal. "Chloe then suggests that" no one can live up to the ideal, not even papa. "

In the following scene Sheldon says to Grace: "You are far from ready and I am doing everything I can to keep this family from falling apart."
Several high-action sequences pop up as one of the heroes suggests that the team must "change" with the current nature of the world.
Millar, who also wrote the comics for Kick-Ass and Kingsman, signed a deal with Netflix in 2017 to turn his work under his company Millarworld into original content for the streamer.

“There is no better place right now than Netflix and no better home for the Millarworld characters. It's always exciting to see your work in print, and it's amazing to see those stories turned into movies, but this is it a whole different level, "he told Comicbook.com at the time." Let me try to put it into perspective. A large film studio produces about 30 or 40 hours of original material every year. Netflix has that year alone more than 1,000 hours of original content and is growing. "
He added, "If we had sold Millarworld to a typical studio, we would have seen some of these franchises over the next decade."
Jupiter's Legacy premieres on Netflix on May 7th.
