It looks like Spider-Man is going to be sporting some new digs in the upcoming sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming. While Tom Holland will be returning to play the web-head (even though his fate is still in question after that Avengers: Infinity War ending), Marvel’s iconic hero will be undergoing a few changes.
Spider-Man: Homecoming and Ant-Man and The Wasp costume designer Louise Frogley told IndiaWest: “I am not actually working on that film, but the costumes will have very big changes because, in the film, Spider-Man becomes more like a man and not a teenager.”
Even though Fogley has moved on from her work with Marvel Studios to the upcoming Pale Blue Dot project, she looks back on her time in the superhero realm fondly, and recalls the immense challenge it was to help bring these heroes to life on the big screen.
Technically, it was very difficult because we were trying to get back to the earlier years and it was hard to create. We had to get the scale absolutely right, and we did a lot of camera testing to visualize the final product. We did close to ten tests before we finally go it right and it was very important to get the technical elements of it right.
We had a very brilliant cutter finisher too who made the actual patent-like suit. We were very lucky that we had very gifted people working with us. We wanted to make it fresh but very classic because it’s the beginning of the Spider-Man as a young man.
After extensive research and numerous tests, it was concluded that minimalism was the name of the game for designing Spidey’s garb for Homecoming.
“Marvel researched very thoroughly, and they were very clever about the decision and decided it should be pretty simple,” Frogley said. “As a young guy, he had his homemade suit, and then he has this beautiful suit that Tony Stark gives him, which is pretty cool.”
Avengers: Infinity War can still be seen in theaters. The next few films on the MCU docket are Ant-Man and The Wasp on July 16th, Captain Marvel on March 8th, 2018, the follow up to Infinity War on May 3rd, 2019, the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming on July 5th, 2019, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 sometime in 2020.
