James Gunn hints there’s a future for Michael B. Jordan’s DC project, just not the one you’re thinking of

Eyebrows were raised and curiosity was piqued during the press tour for Creed III when director and star Michael B. Jordan‘s representatives made a point of ensuring he wasn’t asked any questions about his mysterious Superman project.

It was announced back in the summer of 2021 that the actor and filmmaker was spearheading development on an HBO Max exclusive heavily rumored to focus on the Val-Zod iteration of the Man of Steel. Since then, we’ve heard next to nothing, while Warner Bros. was merged with Discovery not too long before James Gunn and Peter Safran were installed as co-CEOs of DC Studios.

However, what everyone else seems to be forgetting is that we’re closing in on three years since Jordan was also revealed to be producing a live-action Static Shock movie, one that was set to bring the fan favorite to the screen after years of rumor, hearsay, and failed attempts. Even though it’s about as radio silent as his Superman, Gunn did hint that he might have plans in store for the superhero after admitting that he’s a fan.

Of course, there’s no word on Static Shock being part of Chapter 1: Gods & Monsters as of yet, never mind with Jordan remaining involved, but as a brand new character backed by an A-list superstar behind the camera, it’s definitely something that should be taken under consideration. Alas, we’ll just have to wait and see how it all shakes out in the long run, but it’s surely too good an opportunity to pass up.
