  • Josh brought his son, Axl Jack Duhamel, home some photos with him and some video of him trying on The Utopian's costume to get his opinion. "Axl gasped as he couldn’t believe his father looked like a real superhero," Josh said.[1]
    • Axl thought the costume was way too white and delivered his son’s feedback to the producers and the producers agreed with his son's opinion. They added dashes of grey on the legs and arms, in addition to a sort of ‘alien language’ on the material.[1]
