Michael B. Jordan to Produce ‘Static Shock’ Movie

Stephen

Michael B. Jordan will produce “Static Shock,” a movie adaptation of the comic book, unveiled by Reginald Hudlin during August’s DC FanDome. Jordan revealed on Friday that he will produce the pic through his Warner Bros.-based Outlier Society banner.

Static, aka Virgil Hawkins, was created by Milestone Media and DC Comics in the 1990s. The character is a teen who transforms into a superhero with electromagnetic powers. A “Static Shock” animated series aired on Kids’ WB in the early 2000s and was one of the few superhero series starring a Black character.

“I’m proud to be a part of building a new universe centered around Black superheroes; our community deserves that,” Jordan said in a statement. “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.” (Source)

Did anyone else watch the animated series back in the early 2000s?

The show was the first superhero series to feature a black lead and Static aka Virgil was a role model to so many kids.. He was smart and nerdy but still cool, honest, funny and heroic. The series wasn't afraid to tackle important issues like racism and gun control. They even crossed over with other shows of the DC Universe.

This movie has crazy potential. I wonder who they will cast as Static. :flutter:

It could be a hit based on the nostalgia people have from the series. :applause:

I also hope it’s not a cheesy, CGI mess.

Static Shock was a decent show, I didn't mind sitting through it while I waited for Yugioh and Pokemon

Definitely but it needs to be someone younger. I can see this movie being DC’s answer to Tom Holland’s Spider-Man. Spunky, fun teenage superhero.
