Look out, Luke Cage. There's a new hot superhero fighting crime on these streets.
The CW unveiled the trailer for its upcoming series Black Lightning, a new show based on a DC Comics hero named Jefferson Pierce. After hanging up his cape, Pierce pulled back into the world of crime-stopping after his daughter is recruited by a local gang.
Black Lightning stars Cress Williams in the title role. Watch the exciting trailer, below:
Black Lightning is not on the upcoming Fall 2017 slot for CW, so it will likely premiere mid-season, when other established superhero shows are on their mid-season break.
