Black Lightning star Cress Williams wants to be part of The CW’s ‘Arrowverse’

May 22nd, 2017 by Marc Comments

We posted the (pretty impressive) trailer for The CW’s latest DC show Black Lightning a few days ago (here) along with the news that the show will, unlike Arrow, Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow, won’t be part of The CW’s shared universe.

And, we’ll not lie, this let us down a little because we’re loving the ever-growing ‘Arrowverse’.

However, it seems that all may not be lost.

We know in the original article we said that CW chief Mark Pedowitz said: “Black Lightning, at this time, is not part of the Arrowverse,” and we focused on the ‘for now’ part but it seems that there’s still a chance that, at some point, we might see Black Lightning confirmed as part of the world of all the other heroes.

Black Lightning star Cress Williams has been talking about the world of The CW and said of his show’s future: “I think it would be interesting down the line. Eventually we’re going to have probably three superheroes on our show with me and the daughters. Once we become some kind of team, it would be great to go as a team onto another show. It’s going to be fun developing that, because with every good thing, there’s going to be a lot of wrinkles.”

Man, we’d be delighted to have that happen!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
