It is easy to forget with all the hype building up for Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, and Avengers: Infinity War that Marvel Studios is already working on quite a few other releases. Ant-Man and the Wasp is already filming to round out their 2018 line-up and the studio is preparing production for 2019’s Captain Marvel. We have received quite a lot of hints at the film’s plot thanks to this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, but it has been rather quiet since. Luckily, we now have some more news on the upcoming project, which may highlight the show’s general direction.
First off, Omega Underground reveals that production designer Andy Nicholson is joining the production team. He has not only worked on Assassin’s Creed, the upcoming sequel Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom but also was nominated for his work on the film Gravity. He will be joined by veteran visual effects supervisor Christopher Townsend, who has worked on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Avengers: Age of Ultron. He seems like a perfect fit for a character that will be a combination of the MCU’s earth- and cosmic-based adventures.
Another great addition is sci-fi costume designer Sanja Milkovic Hays, who has quite a lot of experience with the genre. Most notably is her work on Star Trek Beyond, which means we can expect some interesting space designs for the Kree and Skrull. She also worked on the original Blade film, which could be a great hint at a lot of designs inspired by the 90s. Just like Omega Underground points out, we also hope that we could finally see the traditional costumes from SHIELD make an appearance. We still have no news on who is joining the cast and if we can expect some existing MCU characters making a return, but with production to begin early next year, we may get some news soon.
Do you like these additions to the production team? What are your hopes for the film?
