Shortly after the news that Static Shock was being developed for Warner Bros. Machima Youtube channel, we heard a rumor that Jaden Smith was up for the role, but since than we heard very little on any news, until now.
Tyler James Williams (The Walking Dead) was speaking to Flicks and the City at the MCM Comic Con about a role he’d like to play as an African American Superhero and he made a mention that he can’t talk too much (which could mean he is signed up for it or maybe in the running) but does mention that Static Shock has Jaden, now keep in mind this is NOT a confirmation, despite what other sites may be saying (unless he is involved with the project but he hasn’t said he is).
So what do you think? Personally I am not sure, Jaden has shown talent in films like Pursuit of Happyness and Karate Kid, but lately has been in a rut, so its possible he may have a stronger TV presence. It would also make the Smith family a DC Family with Will Smith on Suicide Squad and Jada Pink-Smith on Gotham.
