The beloved Static Shock series is getting adapted into a movie thanks to Michael B. Jordan.
The actor made the announcement on Friday. “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.”
Static Shock will also be turned into a digital comic series beginning in February.
Jordan’s breakout role was in Fruitvale Station portraying Oscar Grant who was another unarmed Black man that was gunned down by cops on New Years.
