Well, Arrow and Flash have just gotten a new pal.
The new superhero, Black Lightning, will be played by Cress Williams (Hart of Dixie, Friday Night Lights). The difference here is that he isn’t the young and studly millennial hero. Williams will play a retired hero that gets dragged back into the life to protect his daughter and protege from their bad life choices.
The show, which will be produced by Greg Berlanti (who also producers the other DC TV shows) will likely debut on the CW next fall, so expect more casting announcements to come soon.
