Oh, that’s good news.

Last August in Fandom, DC announced it was relaunching Milestone line In a big, multimedia fashion, with plans finally on board static Shock Movies. Apparently, that “final” may be much sooner than you anticipated, as the film is now Michael B. Jordan and his Outlier Society production banner is attached to the production of the film, according to Hollywood reporter.

By milestone character Fixed, A teenager named Virgil Hawkins, who gets basic electric powers as part of a growing ecosystem of superheroes in a city called Dakota, the film will be the first major DC jointly to center around a black hero.

THR reports that Jordan and his crew will lead the production of the film, which is exciting news for fans of both static and Jordan, which is a magnetic and compelling star in itself. Superhero fans will remember Jordan for playing in Kilmonger black Panther In front of the late Chadwick Boseman.

“I am proud to be a part of the creation of a new universe centered around black superheroes; Jordan said in a statement to the Hollywood Reporter that our community deserves it. “Outlaw Society is committed to bringing diverse comic book content to life on all platforms and we are excited to partner with Reggie and Warner Bros. on this initial step.”
