With the news that a Static Shock film is in the works by Warner Brothers, there has also been news that the upcoming film will be produced by no other then Michael B. Jordan. It was announced Friday that Jordan will be producing the film alongside with Reginald Hudlin.
“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.”
As of now it seems that the Static Shock film will be the flagship franchise in a universe to be produced by Jordan and Outlier Society.
“Outlier will be in the creative center of the Static feature and for Jordan, a comic book fan, this is an opportunity for not only for some world building but to be directly involved in franchise building. Should the first movie spark a hit, a multi platform franchise could be born.”
