Black Lightning is FINALLY coming to our TV screens next fall! The CW is hitting it out of the park with this new Black Lightning trailer! Cress Williams is Jefferson Pierce as Black Lightning is charismatic, enjoyable and tough enough to make this show an early hit even before it’s on the air. Sadly, it’s being said that this new DC Comics super hero TV show won’t be crossing over with The Flash, Arrow or Supergirl due to the production being done in Atlanta (although – The Flash did crossover with Supergirl when 1st season of SG was shot in LA so WHO KNOWS?!). The show has it’s own feel, vibe and distinctive feel given that the hero all supporting characters are African-American.
Here’s hoping that Static Shock isn’t too far away from joining the show in the near future – maybe in it’s 2nd season?

About Black Lightning:
Jefferson Pierce is a man wrestling with a secret. Nine years ago, Pierce was gifted with the superhuman power to harness and control electricity, which he used to keep his hometown streets safe as the masked vigilante Black Lightning. However, after too many nights with his life and his family on the line, he left his Super Hero days behind. Almost a decade later, Pierce’s crime-fighting days are long behind him…or so he thought. But with crime and corruption spreading like wildfire, Black Lightning returns — to save not only his family, but also the soul of his community.
