We reported last week (here) that The Flash and Arrow’s Greg Berlanti was trying to get a Black Lightning TV series up and running.
And we hoped that we would see it land over at The CW to join the host of other DC shows over there, sadly though it wasn’t to be as it has now got a pilot order at FOX. Who also have Gotham.
Black Lightning will center on Jefferson Pierce, a former vigilante who hung up his supersuit and secret identity years ago but is forced into being a superhero again when his daughter becomes obsessed with justice and a star student is recruited by a local gang. The character originally appeared in 1977, and was created by writer Tony Isabella and artist Trevor Von Eeden.
We wouldn’t bet on seeing Black Lightning coming to Gotham though… but you never know.
What say you all?
