Today at The CW Upfronts, the network released a trailer for Black Lightning, which stars Cress Williams as Black Lightning/Jefferson Pierce.
Check the trailer below:
Jefferson Pierce made his choice: he hung up the suit and his secret identity years ago, but with one daughter hell-bent on justice and the other a star student being recruited by a local gang, he’ll be pulled back into the fight as the wanted vigilante and DC legend — Black Lightning.
What a trailer! I don’t know about you, but the trailer is pretty lit. I’m definitely excited for this show! I think The CW made the right decision by deciding to pickup the pilot. Black Lightning will be apart of mid season 2018 for The CW; however, as of right now the show is not apart of the Arrow-verse.
Along with the trailer for Black Lightning being released, I can announce that I’ll be co-hosting a podcast dedicated to the show in DCTVPodcasts Network. Co-hosting along side me will be Constance Gibbs (Feature Writer at New York Daily News), Dorian Parks (Founder & Editor-In-Chief of Geeks of Color) and Clement Bryant (Social Media Director of The Marvel Report).
