We’ve been waiting for the official release of Black Lightning since we first received the news of it last year, and now we are merely days away from the official premiere.
Here at Fan Fest, we are extremely ecstatic to have yet another superhero make his grand debut in the Arrowverse!
In Black Lightning, Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams) is a man wrestling with a secret. Nine years ago, Pierce was gifted with the superhuman power to harness and control electricity, which he used to keep his hometown streets safe as the masked vigilante Black Lightning. However, after too many nightswith his life and his family on the line, he left his Superhero days behind. Almost a decade later, Pierce’s crime-fighting days are long behind him…or so he thought. But with crime and corruption spreading like wildfire, Black Lightning returns — to save not only his family, but also the soul of his community.
Check out the trailer below, and be sure to tune in when Black Lightning premieres on Tuesday, January 16th at 9PM/EST on The CW.
