DC's Black Lightning on CW (was Fox)


Recommended Posts

Fox getting another hero show, Black Lightning. It's coming from Greg Berlanti, who apparently thinks working on Supergirl, Arrow, Flash and Legends of Tomorrow just isn't enough to keep him occupied.

 

Quote

Black Lightning centers on Jefferson Pierce. He made his choice: He hung up the suit and his secret identity years ago, but with a daughter 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.

Pretty much spot on, those bolts look stupid.

 

Especially as they point down to that glowing area on his stomach.. Makes him look like he's in an advert for indigestion tablets or something..

Yeah the costume is ghastly. Otherwise  I liked it more than I thought I would. I wasn't even gonna check it out as I had trouble imagining Williams in a role like this, but when it suddenly popped up on Netflix I just gave it a go, and I'll definitely watch a few more before I make up my mind.

 

Also, Dexter's dad! Aww.

I actually quite liked this, it’s certainly better than expected. It’s fully following the Superman approach to alter egos though isn’t it?

 

:angry: I’m the principal.

8-) Superhero disguise activated.

 

Spoiler

Even his daughters can’t tell it’s him in a pair of sunglasses when they’re stood right next to him...

He has some sort of doohickey that stops them from seeing anything but a spot of light where his face is. That's what the daughter said.

This joins Supergirl in getting cancelled after its new season.

They're doing a backdoor pilot (oo-er) though during the season for the character of Painkiller.

 

So that's Supergirl, Arrow and Black Lightning all going. Can't see Flash lasting that much longer. I do wonder if theyre going to condense or wind down this era of superhero television and reboot it all on HBO Max.
