Michael B. Jordan To Co-Produce DC Universe’s ‘Static Shock’ Movie

‘Black Panther’ alum Michael B. Jordan will co-produce film adaptation of the DC series ‘Static Shock.’

After news first revealed at the DC FanDome event in August by Milestone Media’s Reginald Hudlin, Jordan confirmed his involvement in the movie via social media posts on October 17. Jordan, who has been included in Time’s 100 Most Influential People of 2020, shared a pair of illustrations from ‘Static Shock’ comic book and added “⚡️😏” emojis.

The actor also shared an official statement with The Hollywood Reporter regarding his producer role:

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.”

The superhero created by Milestone Comics and written by Christopher Simmons, Dwayne McDuffie, Len Uhley, and John Semper, first appeared in the comic books in 1993. After seven years, it turned into an animated television series through Milestone Media & DC Comics. ‘Static Shock’ premiered on September 23, 2000, on Kids’ WB.

As a television show, the superhero story approached several social issues with its Black title character and received positive reviews during its run.

The filming and release date of the movie has yet been announced.
