New Black Lightning Posters Should Spark Your Interest


So far, I’d like to think that Black Lightning has been very well received by the DC TV fanbase. I mean, not only has it proved to be a critical darling, but its grounded take on the superhero story infused with real world gang violence and social commentary has made for some truly addictive programming, to say the least.

Naturally, we’ll need various treats to help occupy the time separating episodes, and what we have to present today may be just what the doctor ordered. Following in the footsteps of those recent character portraits that so many of you seemed to like are a couple new posters that are probably making it harder for somebody over at Warner Home Entertainment to choose what the eventual cover to season 1’s Blu-ray set will be.

Truth be told, the first in the gallery probably stands the better chance because it shows Cress Williams’ Jefferson Pierce standing alone in his Black Lightning gear. But, in this writer’s humble opinion, it’s the second that I dig most.

In that one, we see Jeff striking his best “feel my power” pose while being joined by his daughters Anissa (Nafessa Williams) and Jennifer (China Anne McClain). As the comic book readers out there know, those two are fated to become Thunder and Lightning, respectively. That said, whatever hints at what’s to come is sure to raise at least one of my eyebrows. Of course, fingers remain crossed for Static showing up in the future.

Black Lightning airs on Tuesday nights on The CW. Tell us, have you been keeping up with the show so far? If so, are you a fan? Sound off in the comments section down below.
