Award-winning costume designer Anna Shepard has been tapped for the untitled sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming, this according to a source of ours working in the production. The tip comes a day after we ran the news that Defenders and Daredevil Season 1 cinematographer Matthew Lloyd and Rise of the Planet of the Apes production designer Claude Pare were being hired to spruce up the film.
Shepard is known for her work in such films as Inglorious Basterds, Band of Brothers, The Pianist, Schindler’s List, Maleficent, and the MCU’s very own Captain America: The First Avenger. So yeah, that’s a lot of wartime period pieces. It brings up the question whether Jon Watts sequel will have sort of a periodic stamp/flair to it given how recent rumors have pointed to a more international/European flavor with regards to the film’s setting. It’s really exciting to think that this sequel is a little over a year away. We can’t wait to see what Feige and co. have in store for us Spidey fans.
