Jaden Smith confirmed as Static Shock


Everyone lost their minds recently when it was revealed that the next Spiderman reboot would most likely follow the Miles Morales storyline, ie the Black Latino Spiderman, and then everyone lost their minds again when it became clear that no, no they wouldn't be.

So will there be a black comic book character hitting the big screen?  The answer appears to be yes.

In a recent interview with The Walking Dead's Tyler James Williams the question of black superheroes came up and Tyler announced his pleasure at seeing Jaden Smith getting the upcoming role of Static Shock:

“I don’t know… What you’re taking about,” Williams says to Flicks And The City with a knowing smile. “But yeah no, it’s great to see Static Shock is happening with Jaden.”

No word on whether that is supposed to be public knowledge yet, but it's out there now.
