A couple months ago we reported on The CW ordering a pilot for one of the world’s first black superheroes Black Lightning. It would seem that pilot tested well because the show was greenlit for a full season. Here we are a few months later and the first official trailer dropped. I’m happy to see a black hero hit the small screen, but I just pray there’s more going on in the show, then what’s eluded.
The trailer is centered around taking down the 100 Gang. I’d hate to see an entire season be wasted fighting common neighborhood thugs. It’s also been confirmed that Black Lightning won’t be a part of the CW’s Arrowverse. That means we more than likely won’t see any crossovers from The Flash or Arrow sadly. Other than that everything else looks cool. Special effects are decent, the actors seem solid and the music is on point. Let’s see how this one plays out *crosses fingers*
Show is expected to air this fall.
