Why Lady Liberty From Jupiter's Legacy Looks So Familiar

The friendly rivalry between Marvel and DC has only heated up even more intensely in the 21st century, as the two companies battle for supremacy when it comes to building their own cinematic universes. Now, by the looks of it, another line of comic books is about to receive its day in the sun, courtesy of Netflix.

The streaming service purchased the rights to Millarworld, a collection of comics from the mind of writer Mark Millar. From superheroes to spies, these books focus on all kinds of fantastical plots that will make for prime viewing on Netflix, especially in light of the popularity of such series as The Witcher and The Umbrella Academy. We're about to get our first glimpse into this exciting new chapter of superhero storytelling when the first Netflix original series under the Millarworld banner comes to fruition with Jupiter's Legacy, coming to the platform on May 7, 2021. 

Netflix, seemingly in order to prove it isn't messing around, has assembled an all-star cast to lead the ensemble, including Leslie Bibb — starring as Lady Liberty — who, herself, is no stranger to the world of superhero adaptations. Even if Bibb's name doesn't immediately ring a bell, you've undoubtedly seen her before, considering her lengthy resume. Here are some of Leslie Bibb's most famous projects, in case you need a refresher. 

Leslie Bibb played Ricky Bobby's wife in Talladega Nights

Leslie Bibb has been working consistently in Hollywood for 25 years now. Early on in her career, you could spot her in various TV series, including ER, Nip/Tuck, and Line of Fire. She soon traded in guest spots on shows to a greater emphasis on a feature film career, and most audiences probably first saw her in the classic 2006 comedy, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby

Bibb plays Carley, who goes on to marry NASCAR driver Ricky Bobby (Will Ferrell) after she flashes him her breasts after a race. She is portrayed as a stereotypical gold-digging trophy wife who doesn't have a problem with letting her kids talk to her father in a disrespectful manner. However, once Ricky Bobby's career starts heading downhill, she jumps ship and decides to get together with his best friend, Cal (John C. Reilly). Bibb's comedic sensibilities were readily apparent from all the way back to when she first auditioned, as she made everyone in the room, including Ferrell, crack up during her line read. 

Leslie Bibb hooked up with Tony Stark in Iron Man

In 2008's Iron Man, Leslie Bibb appeared in a small but memorable role as ambitious reporter Christine Everhart. She's the one Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) meets toward the beginning of the film, who wants to know how he feels about his weapons ending up in the wrong hands. She later goes home with him, and after awakening the next morning, Christine gets a little sassy with Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), to which Potts promptly responds that it's part of her duties to "take out the trash."

She'd reprise this role in Iron Man 2, albeit briefly, when she appears at a soirée with Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell, who's also her husband in real life) and has a rather uncomfortable exchange with Tony and Pepper. 

It looks like Christine has acquired a different job in the years' since rubbing shoulders with Iron Man, though. She more recently appeared in a series of videos where she breaks down important news stories going on in the Marvel universe, such as the introduction of the Sokovia Accords, and the release of Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) from prison. 

Leslie Bibb could most recently be seen in Netflix's The Babysitter: Killer Queen

Jupiter's Legacy won't be the first time Bibb has been in a Netflix property. In fact, she should be a familiar face on the platform at this point, considering she's appeared in both The Babysitter and its sequel, The Babysitter: Killer Queen. She plays Phyliss, otherwise known as Cole's (Judah Lewis) mom. In the first film, her and her husband, Archie (Ken Marino), go off for a fun date night, leaving their son behind with a babysitter who turns out to be part of a satanic cult. 

When the sequel comes around, no one believes Cole's wild stories, and his parents naturally worry about how seriously he's taking all of these "cult" claims. Their fears only escalate when he goes missing, forcing Archie and one of his buddies to go find him. Her character takes a backseat for much of the action that occurs in these horror movies, unfortunately.
