Leinnil Francis Yu is also known to have worked on Marvel comic book titles including Indestructible hulk and Pheonix Resurection. He also collaborated on Superior with Millar.

When Super crooks be on Netflix?
Thanks to the animated spotlight on Netflix’s TUDUM event, it was revealed that Super Crooks will be released on Netflix on Thursday, November 25, 2021.
The long road to Super crooks being adapted on Netflix
Super crooks has been in development one way or another for years. The last time it was set to be in TV format was in 2016 when it was announced that Waypoint Entertainment had acquired the rights to the film (alongside American jesus).
It never progressed and of course, a year later Netflix announced that it had acquired the entire Millarworld library.
Super crooks was quickly announced as one of the first projects in March 2019, being one of the only titles to be an animated series. This is one of the many Millarworld titles in development right now.
How long Super crooks to be?
Thirteen episodes have been ordered in total, with each series scheduled to last 30 minutes.
It is not yet clear if the series is considered a limited series or if it is expected to continue beyond Season 1.
Who is the studio behind Millarworld’s Super crooks?
If you are worried about which studio is behind Super crooks, don’t be. It was produced by the talent behind titles like Fullmetal Alchemist and My hero university. We are referring to Bones located in Tokyo, Japan, founded in 1998. Bones Studio B is working on this Netflix series.
They also work with Netflix on the Godzilla anime franchise too.
Where is Super crooks in development?
It’s especially hard to know where the series is in development at any given time with the animation. However, we’ve had a few production updates over the past few years, so let’s go over all the updates from Mark Miller himself.
In May 2020, Millar took stock by saying he got the first glimpses of production designs.
I just took a look at the production designs of our Studio Bones SUPERCROOKS series and think I just got wet. @netflix owns both that AND Jupiter’s Legacy, so the world-building is amazing, one on Heroes and one on SUPER-VILLAINS. It looks GORGEOUS! pic.twitter.com/FRaHAOx1k6
