Walking Dead Actor Confirms Jaden Smith Will Take On Static Shock Role

To be honest, we saw this coming.

Jaden Smith loves to dress up as superheroes, especially Batman. Well now his dreams might be coming true… on the big screen. Actor Tyler James Williams, who starred in Everybody Hates Chris and The Walking Dead spilled the beans on young Smiths potential role to play Static Shock.

During an interview with Flicks and the City, he pointed out that there aren’t many young, black superhero roles to choose from. Then a few fans off-camera yell out “Spider Man” and “Static Shock.” He replied:

“I don’t know… What you’re taking about,” Williams says. “But yeah no, it’s great to see Static Shock is happening with Jaden.”

What do you think? Does Jaden have the acting chops to play a superhero on the big screen? He definitely has the hair for the role.
