Michael B. Jordan will produce a feature film based on DC Comics’ Static Shock, via his production company Outlier Society. Reginald Hudlin is also attached to the movie.
The character of Static was created by Milestone Comics founders Dwayne McDuffie, Denys Cowan, Michael Davis, and Derek T. Dingle. Static’s first appearance was made in Static #1, written by McDuffie and Robert L. Washington III, and illustrated by John Paul Leon.
DC is relaunching Milestone with Hudlin at the helm. He is writing a new Static Shock digital comic series launching in February 2021 and a Static Shock graphic novel with art by Kyle Baker. A series featuring Icon and Rocket is also in the works by Hudlin and Cowan.
