The new BLACK LIGHTNING trailer discusses how it all started for the superhero!
Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams) retired from his superhero duties long ago, but times are getting rough and Black Lightning is need once again.
A new trailer for Black Lightning (featured above) focuses on why Jefferson– who can manipulate electrical currents, control force fields, and even do a bit of flying– took up the mantle and began fighting crime in the first place, all while cutting to images of the criminals and battles he’ll face as he returns to his former glory.
Of course, he won’t be quite so alone this time. With a wife and two grown daughters, Black Lightning will be a whole new family affair for The CW’s DC line-up.
The show premieres Tuesday, January 16, 2018 after The Flash.
