The highly-anticipated adaptation of Millar and Frank Quitely's Jupiter's Legacy has been in the works for some time, and fans have been getting anxious waiting for any sort of update about the project's release. Fortunately, Netflix has finally unveiled some information about Jupiter's Legacy, and we know when it will be arriving on screens around the world. Jupiter's Legacy is set to make its debut on Friday, May 7th, just a couple of months from now.
