Randy McKinnon Lands Yet another Amazing Gig in ‘Static Shock’

The upcoming ‘Static Shock’ film has landed an in demand writer from the Disney+ hit movie ‘Safety,’ Randy McKinnon. Michael B Jordan and Reginald Hudlin chose McKinnon after Hudlin’s previous project directing Disney+ hit movie ‘Safety’ with him as lead writer.

‘Static Shock’ is based on a character that first appeared in 1993’s Static. The now defunct Milestone Comics was designed to create a more inclusive community within the comic book world and distributed through DC. More than a decade later, he came back as Virgil Hawkins in Static Shock with a compelling backstory. The character made the leap to mainstream DC in 2008 and remains one of the few leading, black superheroes.

This project is spearheaded by producing team Jordan and Hudlin that are hoping to use ‘Static Shock’ as a cornerstone to “a cinematic universe centered around black superheroes” reminding us that not all heroes wear capes. I can’t wait to see where the trio take the story.
