JUPITER'S LEGACY Costume Designer Lizz Wolf On The Challenges Of Creating Skyfox's Awesome Suit (Exclusive)

Jupiter's Legacy Costume Designer Lizz Wolf talks to us in detail about the challenges of creating Skyfox's costume in the Netflix series, revealing how it hinted at his true nature as a supervillain...

Jupiter's Legacy is now streaming on Netflix, and while the show's "Volume 1" left us with some unanswered questions (which we're hoping will be addressed in a second season), there was something, in particular, that grabbed our attention. We are, of course, talking about the costumes!

Those were created by Costume Designer Lizz Wolf, and her previous credits include movies like The ExpendablesPacific Rim: Uprising, and Creed II

We'll share our full interview with you tomorrow, but in the meantime, we thought you'd like to check out this excerpt with Lizz talking in detail about the incredible Skyfox costume worn by Matt Lanter (The Clone Wars). One of the coolest designs in the entire series, we were curious whether the Costume Designer found a way to hint at George Hutchens' future as the world's greatest supervillain.

"I think the one thing about Skyfox is that he has an undeniable intense presence. Even if you just pulled him right off the page of the comic books, he’s irresistible, and he has a strong allure and is charismatic and captivating," she explains. "He has a cocksure, charming way about him, but one of the best things that infused all that and made him come alive is getting to know who George Hutchens is in 1929. He’s got this ridiculous gleam in his eye and a playfulness, and his clothing is impeccable. We made a lot of ties and there are clues. He’s wearing a mulberry coloured suit and he’s got a fox tie pin which is in every scene. There are little bits and pieces and clues about who he becomes. Part of who these people are when they become imbued with powers is extremely relevant to what happens to them as superheroes."

"One of the things in terms of Skyfox turning that around and recognising that wasn’t by giving clues away that he would become a supervillain because I think the reality is that if you’ve read the comic books, you know where the story is going," Lizz continued, elaborating on the importance of Skyfox's costume. "However, he has a very full life ahead of him, and the important thing is that we built that costume to really be a reflection of who he was and who he was going to become without travelling into the villain world. We put his equipment intentionally very low to provoke that confidence and coolness he has, and it was very much thought about as a gunslinger. He has this fractured fox emblem that really beams from every angle that’s a nod to his smile and charm. Then, the battle-scarred and pitted helmet that looks already very aged and like it’s been through an awful lot."

"When he initially dons the costume, it was really about making sure his penetrating gaze was able to touch you and you could see that there was a very complicated guy in there. In the end, he’s equal part superhero, supervillain, gunslinger, playboy, and prodigy, but he’s 100% a badass."

There were a lot of cool costumes in Jupiter's Legacy, but Skyfox is a standout. Lizz recently took to Instagram to share some behind-the-scenes photos and video of Lanter suited up, showcasing the work that went into bringing this comic book character to life on the small screen.
