Jaden Smith Rumored For Static Shock



Joining his father as a rumored part of the DC Universe is Jaden Smith, who is said to be up for the part of Static Shock in the live-action digital series currently in development.

Will Smith is said to be in contention for a role in the Suicide Squad movie.

Warner Bros. recently unveiled a slate of live-action digital series, which includes Static Shock (and Mortal Kombat). The Static Shock live-action digital series is said to be based on the DC Comics comic book by the late Dwayne McDuffie and Robert L. Washington III featuring Virgil Ovid Hawkins as the electromagnetic phenom.

The series is digital exclusive and currently being put together by WB's new digital production wing, Blue Ribbon Content.

Flickering Myth notes WB apparently has their eye on Jaden Smith, as in addition to Will being a possibility for Suicide Squad, Jaden's mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, also has an important role in the Gotham TV series.
