The first poster to promote the second season of Black Lightning has dropped and it promises to deliver “High Voltage Action”.
Prominent in the poster is Cress Williams as Jefferson Pierce aka Black Lightning along with his two daughters, Anissa Pierce (Nafessa Williams) aka Thunder and Jennifer Pierce (China Anne McClain) aka Lightning, his ex-wife Lynn Pierce (Christine Adams) and his rival Tobias Whale (Marvin Jones III aka ‘Krondon’).
Another interesting thing is that it seems as if Black Lightning has a new superhero uniform. It seems more streamline as opposed to season ones suit. Many however are still waiting to see if Jennifer will officially suit up at Lightning in the sophomore season.
Black Lightning returns to the CW on Tuesday October 9th.
It seems as if the king of the DC televsion universe, Greg Berlanti is back at once again. This time he is linking up with creator of The Game and Being Mary Jane, Mara Brock Akil and her husband Salim Akil to bring another DC Comics character to life and to the television screen in Black Lightning.
The story is written by the Akils where Black Lightning centers on Jefferson Pierce who made the choice to hang up his superhero suit and secret identity many years ago. But that changes when his daughter becomes hell-bent on justice and a star student gets actively recruited by a local gang, Pierce plunges back into the fold as the wanted vigilante and legend Black Lightning.
The project is currently being shopped around to various networks. How potentially amazing would it be to see a Berlanti DC television property become a NETFLIX exclusive?
