RUMOR: WB Eyeing Jaden Smith For STATIC SHOCK Role

Following on from the news that Warner Bros. are planning a live-action Static Shock digital series, Flickering Myth reckon the studio are looking at Jaden (son of Will) Smith to fill the role of Virgil Hawkins, aka electrically-charged DC superhero Static Shock.


With Jada Pinkett Smith currently stealing scenes in Gotham and Will Smith supposedly close to signing on for the Suicide Squad movie, could Warner Bros. be looking for a Smith family hat-trick by casting their son Jaden as Static Shock? That's what Flickering Myth have heard at any rate...though do take it with a healthy pinch of that ever-ready salt. The other day it was announced that a live-action Static Shock digital series was in the works as part of an initiative dubbed "Blue Ribbon Content", with Django Unchained producer and Reginald Hudlin on board. Smith definitely has the Virgil Hawkins look down, but would he be a goof fit for the role? Well update if we manage to get any more info on this, but for now let us know what you think in the usual place.
