The Nerd Internet went wild when it was announced at DC FanDome that Static Shock was coming to the big screen. With Jordan joining the project, the film featuring the Milestone Media character is moving in the right direction. Jordan’s production company, Outlier Society, will work with director Reginald Hudlin on the project.
Jordan speaks on his involvement in the film. “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 film will focus on superhero Static Shock from Milestone comics. The comic was revolutionary in the industry, because it is the product of a company founded by Black writers and artists with distribution through DC comics! Representation is everything. Jordan’s star power will undoubtedly further the comics legacy, and bring it more into the forefront where it belongs.
