We won't know until Thursday but it's rumored Black Lightning will be a midseason show due to CW having to order a script rewrite

Well, that was a far more impressive trailer than I imagined it would be. I like the retired hero angle. If they can resist getting all CW demographic with the teeny, angsty it runs in the family angle it might be good. Worried that the reshoots are meant to do exactly that though.

Anxiously awaiting CW's Apache Chief next.

The CW president said today they won't have more than four DC superhero shows airing at once so it could be a case where Legends of Tomorrow ends earlier than it did this year and Black Lightning takes that slot.

Black Lightning and Black Vulcan are two different DC entities.

CW President also confirmed Black Lightning will NOT be in the Arrowverse. IMO it kinda sucks but there's also a location issue that would also make it unlikely to crossover anyway (Arrowverse/Supergirl shoot in Vancouver, Black Lightning will be shooting in Atlanta)

Well they did manage to do a cross over of Supergirl and The Flash when shooting of SG took place in Cali and obviously one show on CBS and the other on CW. I know they are both under the same ownership but the point is they made it work. Also, I believe they initially indicated a cross-over was not in the works or possible or something like that...I don't remember. Anyways, I'm just saying anything is possible...we shall see.

They are? Huh. Thanks.

I'm not as up on my DC D-list superheroes as I thought.

This show got even more promising, in my opinion.

Until season 2 when they decide to move Vancouver to lower production costs and then will have to bring him into the fold, so they'll probably just have Team FlArrow just not know he existed until that happens... like how The Avengers probably don't know The Defenders exist. Not being connected makes me less interested if I'm being honest.

They could have just not have him in the big cross over and have it be more like like the (modern day) Vixen crossover where they knew her and then she was just there one episode. If they can work it out to have Flash on Supergirl which filmed in LA and was on a completely different network then they could have Black Lightning on the others if needed.

I'm not familiar with the character (don't think I'd heard of him until this show was announced), and I only know Cress Williams from when he was on the final season of Nash Bridges years ago, but I might check this out. I like the aspect of a hero coming out of self-imposed retirement to fight again, plus it's interesting that he's an older experienced character rather than a younger guy figuring it out as he goes.

As for an Arrowverse crossover, Williams is opened to the prospect but not before Black Lightning has a chance to really establish itself first.

I'll post the link later but the producers said unlike Arrow and Flash, Black Lightning will NOT have a "villain of the week" they have a season 1 big bad and they want the audience to get to know the Pierce family and the big bad

Casting Update:

Quote:
‘Black Lightning’ Adds Marvin “Krondon” Jones III As Villain Tobias Whale



The cast of the CW’s Black Lightning has added another actor to its roster for its debut season. Marvin “Krondon” Jones III has been set as a series regular and will play the villainous Tobias Whale in the TV adaptation of the DC comic from Salim Akil and Mara Brock Akil.

“I was excited about Krondon when I saw his audition. He’s going to make a great Tobias!” Executive Producer Salim Akil said in a statement. “His authentic street sensibility along with an insightful intelligence is perfect for the Tobias character arc. Not to mention his regal physical bearing will be additive to making our show exciting and different.”

Based on the DC character created by Tony Isabella with Trevor Von Eeden, Black Lightning centers on Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams). He made his choice: He hung up the suit and his secret identity years ago, but with a daughter, Jennifer, hellbent on justice and 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.

Rapper-actor Jones will join Williams, Nafessa Williams, China Anne McClain and Christine Adams in the show as Tobias Whale — one of the titular hero’s biggest adversaries. He is an African-American man with albinism who is the leader of Freeland’s most feared gang — The 100. But in the days before Black Lightning, Tobias was a politician, rising up the ranks of local government through corrupt and illegal means. That was until he was brought down by Alvin Pierce, Jefferson’s father. Enraged, Tobias murdered Alvin and was driven underground into exile. It’s here he found a place to rebuild, growing into the violent and methodical leader of The 100 as we find him today.

Jones is best known as the solo rapper and Strong Arm Steady (SAS) front man that goes by the name of Krondon (KRNDN). In addition to releasing his debut album Everything’s Nothing, he has written for a number of artists including Snoop Dogg, Dr Dre and Xzibit. Black Lightning marks his first TV role as a series regular.

Another Cast Update:

Quote:
Black Lightning Finds Its Lady Eve



Actress-singer Jill Scott is tapping into her villainous side for The CW’s midseason superhero drama Black Lightning.

Scott has been cast as the DC Comics baddie Lady Eve, who presents herself in Freeland as the owner of a funeral parlor, but quickly becomes an adversary to Cress Williams’ titular hero. The consummate professional serves as a bridge between villain Tobias Whale (Marvin “Krondon” Jones III) and a secret group of corrupt leaders.

Scott previously starred in the BBC/HBO series The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency. Her other TV credits include Being Mary Jane, Fringe, Law & Order: SVU and Girlfriends.

Excellent but she better put a spin on in and not give us another Black Mariah from Luke Cage.
