JADEN SMITH SET TO PLAY STATIC SHOCK

JADEN SMITH SET TO PLAY STATIC SHOCK
Jaden Smith will next star as Virgil Hawkins a.k.a. Static Shock, according to Tyler James Williams. During an interview with Flicks And The City, Tyler discussed his activity in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the lack of young black superheroes. When Tyler pointed out that “there aren’t a lot of young, black comic book superheroes,” two people in the background could be heard shouting “Spider-Man” and “Static Shock”. The star of “The Walking Dead” then responded, “I don’t know… What you’re taking about. But yeah no, it’s great to see Static Shock is happening with Jaden.” “We’ll see what happens, in what way Marvel decides to go with Spider-Man,” he continued. “Static Shock” was originally created by Dwayne McDuffie, Robert L. Washington III, and John Paul Leon for Milestone Comics in 1993. The character is described as a self-professed teenage geek who loves video games and possesses electricity-based powers. Jaden will join her father Will Smith and her mother Jada Pinkett Smith in the DC Universe. Will portrays Deadshot in upcoming supervillain flick “Suicide Squad” while Jada previously played Fish Mooney on “Gotham”.
