Static was created by the late Dwayne McDuffie for Milestone Comics (part of DC Comics). Like most of the Milestone titles it was a great read (go to your local comic shop and pick up the back issues) and Static also appeared in the Batman cartoons before getting his own animated series.
It is a year since McDuffie’s death and the current Static Shock comic book will soon be coming to an end, but Virgil Hawkins will be taking to the air on a piece of metal once more in this cool looking fan film, Static Shock: Blackout.
Daisy Watkins, an up and coming news reporter from New York, travels to perilous Dakota City to be the first to discover the name of a teenage vigilante with paranormal abilities.
The movie will be distributed online for free, as a fan film and will not be used for any profitable or commercial purposes outside of that.
Here is the trailer and the full 12-minute film will be out next month.
Let me know what you thought of the trailer.
The film cost $5000 to make and used the RED camera.
