Queen Latifah is set to star in an upcoming CBS TV drama series The Equalizer, which will debut Feb. 7 immediately after the Super Bowl. The show is a remake of a popular 1980s television series about a crime fighting vigilante. Denzel Washington starred in a 2014 movie based on that series.
While Latifah’s casting in the show was announced last month, we now have our first look at the award-winning actress in all her butt-kicking glory. CBS released the first trailer for the upcoming series, which you can see below:
The release of the trailer immediately got the Queen trending on social media. While a few haters are having trouble with the idea of the iconic role being played by a woman, folks overwhelmingly are thrilled to see the Set It Off star back in action:
