AMillar says he’s “incredibly proud” of the show, but wants to see what the supervillains are up to now.

“Given our next set of goals, we made the tough decision to let our incredible cast out of their show engagements while we continue to carefully develop every aspect of the Jupiter’s Legacy saga,” he writes.

What is Jupiter’s legacy spin-off Supercrooks about?

In the same statement, Millar describes Supercrooks, inspired by crime novels similar to Quentin Tarantino and Martin Scorsese.

“Doing something like this that focuses solely on the villains they’re fighting feels incredibly fresh as we explore what it’s like to be a bad guy in a world teeming with the good guys, the ones want to be put in jail, ”he explains.

“Jupiter’s Legacy is a huge and rich space full of characters, so I’m excited to announce that our next step here is a live-action version of the Supercrooks comic that I shared with Leinil Francis Yu a few years ago created. ”

According to Deadline, Supercrooks revolves around a “thrown together gang of super villains, crooks, petty thieves and leg breakers” who band together for the heist of the century.

“Crime pays off and they will prove it. Some people just want to have the time of their lives and make some dirty money doing it.

“If the superheroes get in the way, they’ll spit teeth.”
