‘Jupiter’s Legacy’ | The Power of Inspiration

Mark Dillion

July 2021

The Netflix series Jupiter’s Legacy, adapted from the comic by Mark Millar and Frank Quitely, recounts the saga of a gifted family — superpowered and slow to age — as the younger generation challenges the code
of the Union of Justice, the crime-fighting group the older generation
founded in the 1930s.
“Every department — including costumes, production design,
VFX and stunts — was trying to be true to the comic, and they did
such a beautiful job,” says cinematographer Nicole Hirsch Whitaker,
who cites the comics as inspiration, “not only in terms of design, but
also composition.”
