‘Black Panther’s Costume Designer Ruth E. Carter Working on Sony’s ‘Silver & Black’
It is an undeniable fact that Black Panther’s costume designer Ruth E. Carter did an incredible job with the costumes in the movie. She managed to create a modern, yet traditionally African look for the characters that were unique for each one of them, and it really helped take the film to a whole other level. The award-winning costume designer recently spoke to The Mutuals Interviews, and confirmed that she will be working on another Marvel superhero project: Silver & Black.
Silver & Black is one of the few spin-offs that Sony has planned that will take place without Spiderman. It will follow Silver Sable and Black Cat, two characters that have already been established in the Marvel universe, and are usually associated with Spiderman. The film will be directed by Gina Prince Bythewood, but there is still no word as to when production will officially start. There has also been no comment from Sony regarding casting.
Here’s what Carter had to say about doing costume design for Silver & Black:
“Infinity War just scooped up our costumers and our costumes after we were done and just put them in their next movie. I did sign to do Silver Sable and Black Cat and Sony pictures is actually doing it. It’s doing script re-writes right now, so I’m waiting to get the signal that I’m going back to work. I love [actually] this new genre and new area that kind of has discovered me. I just want to continue to bring something awesome to it.”
When Carter was asked if she would be interested in returning for a Black Panther sequel, she said she would love to, as long as they are doing something new and different.
Silver & Black is set to hit theaters Feburary 8th, 2019.
