Michael B. Jordan has revealed that he is set to be a producer for the movie adaptation of the animated series and DC comic book, Static Shock, which is centred on a new superhero universe for Black characters.
Static Shock was created by Milestone Comics back in 1993 by Black writers and artists whose aim was to make the world of comics and superheroes more diverse.
The animated series first premiered in 2000 and ran for four seasons, with new reports claiming there will be a Static Shock digital comic series coming out in February 2021.
Speaking about his involvement with the upcoming film, the Black Panther actor said, “I’m proud to be a part of building a new universe centred 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.”
