Even though Black Lightning will not take place in the CW’s Arrowverse it is still shaping up to have potential to live up to the rest of the DC shows on the network.
It was recently announced that actress Edwina Findley has been cast to play a villain on the upcoming series. Fans of Fear the Walking Dead may recognize Edwina as loner Diana, a recent fan favorite that just debuted this season. Not much is known about her character, but it has been reported that she will play Tori, the sister of the show’s big bad, Tobias Whale. She is described as beautiful and charming, but hiding a badass lurking underneath.
We may have a bit to wait to see her in action though. Right now Black Lightning is set to premier in the midseason schedule. All signs are pointing to a gritty, but visually stunning superhero show that deals with issues of racial inequality, gang violence and police brutality.
