Not much is known about the follow up at this target, although we sure can guess based on Anka’s resume! He’s renowned for his 2014 Spider-Woman design, which appeared in Spider-Verse# 2. It’s no secret that the cinema modification doesn’t base much of its area on any comics apart from a general proposition, but if Jessica Drew is going to shape her silver screen debut, it simply offsets help feeling that she ogled good do it. So, rumors advocate he’ll make a positive contribution in the character design department. Unfortunately, we’ve got awhile to wait, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 doesn’t slam theaters until April of 2022.
What’s the Spider-Verse crew up to in the meantime?
