Black Lightning may soon be the next DC superhero on the small screen. Greg Berlanti, the man in charge of the DC Universe on CW, has created a team that includes Mara Brock Akil & Salim Akil to bring Black Lightning to the small screen.
Deadline revealed the following about the character and his story:
“Written by the Akils, Black Lightning centers on Jefferson Pierce. He made his choice: he hung up the suit and his secret identity years ago, but with a daughter hell-bent on justice and 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.”
