Yesterday, it was announced that the comic book superhero series Black created by Kwanza Osajyefo and Tim Smith 3, set in a world in which only Black people are developing superpowers, had been picked up by Warner Bros as a movie, with a script written by Batman And The Outsiders writer Bryan Edward Hill. The movie will be produced by Jeff Robinov, Guy Danella, and John Graham from Studio 8 with Black Mask Studio's Matteo Pizzolo and Brett Gurewitz as producer and executive producer, with Osajyefo and Smith also listed as co-producers.
In a world that already hates and fears them – what if only Black people had superpowers. After miraculously surviving being gunned down by police, a young man learns that he is part of the biggest lie in history. Now he must decide whether it's safer to keep it a secret or if the truth will set him free.
