Michael B. Jordan is set to produce the Static Shock movie. 

The comic’s titular character, created by Milestone Media and DC Comics first appeared in 1993’s Static Vol. 1 comic for Milestone Comics. His superpowers are a result of interaction with a radioactive substance, giving the hero the ability to control electromagnetic fields. 

Jordan confirmed the news that he has officially boarded the movie adaptation of the comic with a very low-key tweet. According to multiple outlets, he’ll produce the pic through his Warner Bros-based Outlier Society banner. 

“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.”
