BLACK PANTHER’S Costume Designer Ruth E. Carter Joins SPIDER-MAN Spin-Off

Black Panther has been nothing less than a cultural phenomenon. Its vibrant and brilliant vision of the technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda has immersed fans and helped the film break records, garnering massive critical acclaim. A large part of that beautiful visual landscape are Ruth E. Carter’s incredible and instantly iconic costumes, which we’ll see once again in Avengers: Infinity WarBut superhero fans can rejoice because—as reported by Shadow and Act—in a recent interview at Discussing Film, Ruth E. Carter revealed that she will be designing costumes for Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man spin off, Silver & Black. The film will follow Spider-Man side characters, Black Cat and Silver Sable, in a yet-as-undisclosed adventure.

“[Avengers: 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 & Black] and Sony Pictures is actually doing it. It’s doing script rewrites right now, so I’m waiting to get the signal that I’m going back to work. I love this new genre and new area that kind of has discovered me. I just want to continue to bring something awesome to it,” Carter revealed.

This is a huge get for Sony after Carter’s costume work played such a huge part in Black Panther’s success. It’s especially exciting as director Gina Prince-Bythewood is the first black woman to helm a superhero movie, and it’s great to see other black female creatives being added to the film’s reative roster. It’s also fantastic for fans, as historically both characters have often fallen victim to the over-sexualized, illogical costume trope that oft befalls female superheroes in comics. We’ve already seen Ruth E. Carter create fantastic, action-ready, and gorgeous costumes strong women can fight in, so we can’t wait to see what Carter has in store for Black Cat and Silver Sable.

Are you excited about seeing Carter take on another superhero world? Can’t wait to see what Prince-Bythewood has in store for the world of Spider-Man? Just want to see two badass women take on the world? Let us know below!
