While Sony’s upcoming Silver & Black is said to be gearing up to start production this summer, news has been fairly quiet about the Gina Prince-Bythewood film. However, we’ve now got confirmation on one small piece of news about the Spider-Man spin-off that was previously rumored.
A short while back, it was reported that Black Panther costume designer Ruth Carter had come on board the film but we had yet to get any official confirmation of this news. Appearing on an episode of The Mutuals Interviews, Carter was asked about the project and confirmed her involvement.
“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.”
Additionally, when asked if she would be interested in returning for a Black Panther sequel, Carter did express an interest as long as she doesn’t feel as if they are doing and showing the same thing with the film. Does the confirmation of Ruth Carter’s involvement with the project increase your excitement when it comes to Silver & Black? Are you hoping she returns for a Black Panther sequel? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
Silver & Black is set to hit theaters on Feb. 8, 2019.

10 Marvel Villains Who Should Appear In The ‘Black Panther’ Sequel
Marvel’s Black Panther is still taking the box office by storm, but that isn’t stopping people from talking about what they want from the sequel. King T’Challa and the rest of Wakanda’s most interesting characters are set to appear in Avengers: Infinity War, but that movie will focus on Thanos and the Infinity Gems instead of seeing how Black Panther’s world has evolved. Not only does the Black Panther sequel have to follow up on multiple plot points hanging around on this movie, but it also needs to introduce new villains for T’Challa and his advisers to take on.
In order for him to continue growing and become more comfortable in his leadership position, T’Challa needs to be challenged in unique ways. Part of what made Killmonger such a unique villain is that he had a personal motivation that directly challenged T’Challa’s world view, and that idea can easily be replicated and expanded upon for the sequel. Black Panther has a very specific perspective on the world, and all of these villains will come in and force him to look at things in a different way as well as challenge him physically.
