Black Panther’s Michael B. Jordan has just signed on to help bring Milestone’s Static Shock to the big screen.
The first three offerings include: Hardware “The Man in the Machine” (by Dwayne McDuffie, Denys Cowan, and J.J. Birch), Icon “A Hero’s Welcome” (by McDuffie and M.D. Bright), and Icon Vol. 2 “The Mothership Connection” (by McDuffie, Bright, and Mike Gustovich).
Unlike the first half of DC FanDome, which focused primarily on DC’s upcoming movies, television, video games, and animated features, the on-demand Explore the Universe edition is firmly centered on the life-blood of the company: traditional comic books.
Milestone was revolutionary at the time for creating an entire comic universe (the so-called Dakotaverse) comprised of a very diverse roster of heroes and villains. The original publishing venture lasted until 1996. Milestone Media was also responsible for the WB’s animated hit series Static Shock, which ran from 2000 through 2004.
Some of those titles include: Batgirl, Batman and The Outsiders, and Justice League Odyssey in October and Teen Titans, Young Justice, Suicide Squad, Hawkman, and John Constantine: Hellblazer in November.
