The CW has released a new batch of photos taken from the first two episodes of its highly anticipated new superhero show Black Lightning, check them out below:
The first episode, premiering directly after The Flash is titled “The Resurrection” and has the following synopsis:
Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams) is a man wrestling with a secret. As the father of Anissa (Nafessa Williams) and Jennifer (China Ann McClain), and principal of a charter high school that also serves as a safe-haven for young people in a neighbourhood overrun by gang violence, he is a hero in his community. Nine years ago, Pierce was a hero of a different sort. Gifted with the superhuman power to harness and control electricity, he used those powers to keep his hometown streets safe as the masked vigilante Black Lightning, but he left the Superhero days behind. Almost a decade later, Pierce’s crime-fighting days are long behind him… or so he thought. Christine Adams, James Remar, Damon Gupton and Marvin Jones III also star.
Black Lightning debuts Tuesday, January 16th at 9 p.m (Following The Flash)
Based on characters from DC Comics. Black Lightening character created by Tony Isabella with Trevor Von Eeden.
