Dexter Darden has his sights on Static Shock!
The 29-year-old actor recently opened up about his love of comic books and how he would love to be in the upcoming film, which is being produced by Michael B Jordan.
“I’m a massive comic book fan,” he told ComicBook.com. “I’m a massive, massive comic book fan. Like I have a Spider-Man pillow, my recording studio and my room are dedicated to Marvel. And so, any opportunity to be a part of any franchise would be fantastic. But I know there’s a rumor of Static Shock coming back around and Michael B. Jordan doing some producing. So if there is a way for me to get involved in that, if I have an opportunity to be a part of such an amazing trailblazing project like that, I wouldn’t mind being a part of it.”
Static Shock follows “Virgil Hawkins, a teenager who transforms into a superhero who gains electromagnetic powers after being exposed to strange gas,” according to THR. The character also had an early 2000s animated series.
You may remember Dexter from his role in the Maze Runner movies, and most recently, he stars as Devante Young in the new Saved By The Bell series on Peacock!
