Report: BLACK LIGHTNING TV Series In Development From DC-CW Showrunner
Admittedly, I prefer Lightning as part of the Outsiders, but I'd give this a shot.
Can LeVar Burton appear in this?
Is this the same character who use to be called Black Vulcan on the old Super Friends cartoon?
Black Vulcan was used in place of Black Lightning for the cartoon, but yeah, the idea is the same.
The plot reminds me of DC Black Lighting shorts.
If they play up the family of superheroes angle, it could be really fun.
This seems like it could be pretty awesome. Though I hope it ends up as part of the CW where it belongs. Much like Supergirl should have been from go.
This is the Black Vulcan dude from Super Friends, isn't he?
Should be interesting, as long as he's not too much like Luke Cage.
Nope Black Vulcan was created because they couldn't get the rights to Black Lighting at the time. Kind of like how they had the Justice Guild on the Justice League cartoon instead of the JSA due to rights issues.
i'd much rather have a show with this guy to be honest;
beaten to the punch on harvey birdman..
CW should just change its name to DC
My first though was "They're making a TV show out of that Russian movie with the flying car?"
Shows how much I know.
Wonder if Static or maybe The Outsiders will appear.
Actually Static has his own show in development or had.

Jaden Smith Confirmed As Static Shock By Tyler James Williams
Aww man I forgot about Jaden Smith as Static.
Oh God Why.
dad needs to stop buying him movies.
They'll probably do like Arrow, and have him form the Outsiders a couple seasons in.
That would work for me, as long as WB eases up on the character restrictions, and allows Katana to be on the team. I know Batman would never be part of the show, and that's fine -- Jefferson can lead.
