First Look Image At Cress Williams As BLACK LIGHTNING!
The CW and Warner Bros. Television have released the first look image of Cress Williams as Jefferson Pierce better known as Black Lightning! Production is underway in Atlanta and the pilot will make its debut for The CW, hopefully this coming Fall.
Back in February we had the exclusive story details on the series CLICK HERE.
Have a look at image below.
The Black Lightning costume was designed by Laura Jean Shannon, whose film and television credits include the upcoming Jumanji sequel, The Jungle Book, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Blade: Trinity and Iron Man, for which she was nominated for a Costume Designers Guild Award.
The first African-American DC super hero to have his own standalone comic title, the character of Black Lightning was created by Tony Isabella with Trevor Von Eeden in 1977. The television adaptation tells the tale of a father drawn reluctantly back into the super hero game.
Jefferson Pierce made his choice: he hung up the suit and his secret identity years ago, but with one daughter hell-bent on justice and the other 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.
Salim Akil is directing the pilot from a script he wrote.
