Hey, Hollywood, Here’s An Awesome Static Shock Movie You Didn’t Make

We Can Be Heroes

You may remember a few months back we brought you a trailer for a Static inspired fan film. Called Static Shock: Blackout and based on the DC Comics (via Milestone) character, we wondererd what the full version would look like. I believe our words where, we were “heartily” looking forward to it. The wait is over…it’s here. Shot on a student budget with limited resources (about $5,000), this fan film shows huge potential. Starring Stefan Dezil as Virgil Hawkins, aka Static, the film serves to honor the memory of Dwayne McDuffie who created the character. I’m loving it. Give it a look for yourself and check out the film’s Facebook page for more information and updates.
