Jupiter's Legacy Star Ian Quinlan Talks About ​the New Hit Superhero Drama Streaming on Netflix

We are living in the age of the superhero genre rather it be on television or our movie screens. With COVID-19 putting a halt to how much superhero content we consume in a year, other studios have been able to bank off of Marvel's absence in the genre. With the delay of many Marvel films, a new wave of superhero content has gained popularity with fans of comic books that are being adapted to new fans who jump on board when a big-budget brings superheroes to life.

Amazon's The Boys, Invincible, and even the Zack Snyder cut of The Justice League, saw an audience eager to watch classic tales of good vs. evil without Marvel dominating water cooler chats. Although the popular WandaVision had twitter on fire every week, the willingness to accept other superhero stories is at an all-time high. In comes Netflix's newest bingeable series, Jupiter's Legacy, the adaptation of the Mark Miller written comic book series of the same name.

Jupiter's Legacy follows the story of the world's first superheroes who received their powers in the 1930s. In present day, they are the revered elder guard but their super-powered children struggle to live up to the legendary feats of their parents. The show currently sits on top of Netflix's most-watched list, with many audiences being drawn into the family aspect of the show.

The Quintessential Gentleman had the chance to chat with actor Ian Quinlan, who stars as Hutch, the son of the world's greatest supervillain, and a challenger of "The establishment". We talked about his early career, what viewers can expect from his character and the show, and the importance of living up to symbols.

Check it out.

Jupiter's Legacy is now streaming on Netflix.
