  • Black Lightning Coming to The CW

    http://ew.com/tv/2017/05/10/black-li...nce-cw-series/

    It’s official: Greg Berlanti will have another superhero show on The CW next season.

    The CW has given a series order to Black Lightning, which hails from the prolific superhero producer as well as The Game and Being Mary Jane creator Mara Brock Akil and her husband Salim Akil, EW has learned.

    Here’s the logline for the project, which will also be executive produced by Sarah Schechter: “Jefferson Pierce made his choice: he hung up the suit and his secret identity years ago, but with one daughter hell-bent on justice and the other 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.”

    Black Lightning, created by Tony Isabella with Trevor Von Eeden in 1977, is one of DC Comics’ first major African-American superheroes.

    Now that Black Lightning has gone to series, Berlanti will have five superhero projects on the network, including Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl. Riverdale, Berlanti’s modern take on Archie, was also recently renewed.
    With this, The CW will be airing five shows based off of characters from DC comics next season (seven overall with iZombie and Riverdale as well).

    I assume since it'll air on The CW, that it'll take place in the Arrowverse, and if so, it probably won't be on Earth-1 (where Green Arrow and The Flash operate), maybe Supergirl's earth, before she ever donned the cape (as it would be a cool way to explore her earth more)? Or most likely on an entirely different earth all together (if it's a part of the Arrowverse at all)?

    I feel like by the time all the good super heros get a tv show, the fad will be over and the first XMen, Batman, or Spider-Man show will get canceled after one season ...

        At this point, they should just rename this network The DC-W.

            The Berlanti network is more fitting

            I want Black Lightning to take place in Supergirl's world or Earth-3 so there's a chance for more Jesse Quick appearances
