After Reginald Hudlin teased that a Static Shock movie was in the works at DC FanDome, it has been officially confirmed that Static Shock will be happening and produced by Michael B. Jordan!
Here’s what Michael B. Jordan said to THR:
I’m proud to be a part of building a new universe centered around black superheroes; our community deserves that. Outlier Society is committed to bringing to life diverse comic book content across all platforms and we are excited to partner with Reggie and Warner Bros on this initial step.
Finally, Static Shock is getting the push he deserves in the mainstream media. I’ve watched Static Shock as a kid, and I loved it so much, especially since the character of Virgil Hawkins resonated with me. The expectations for Static Shock will definitely be high for the fans, but knowing Michael B. Jordan, I know he’s going to give us the film we deserve. Also, I’m 100% down for a Milestone universe.
