After getting the news that the latest DC Comics series from Greg Berlanti (The Flash/Arrow) would be getting a series order from its new network the CW, the network has released the first trailer for the superhero series.
The trailer is pretty straight forward in telling you the story of Jefferson Pierce, his family and the conflicts that he’s going to find himself in throughout the season. It also showcases the family aspects of the series including one of the hero’s daughters emerging powers. The trailer looks good and has a good pedigree with the rest of the CW/DC Comics shows.
Jefferson Pierce is a man wrestling with a secret. Nine years ago, Pierce was gifted with the superhuman power to harness and control electricity, which he used to keep his hometown streets safe as the masked vigilante Black Lightning. However, after too many nights with his life and his family on the line, he left his Super Hero days behind. Almost a decade later, Pierce’s crime-fighting days are long behind him…or so he thought. But with crime and corruption spreading like wildfire, Black Lightning returns — to save not only his family, but also the soul of his community.
Black Lightning premieres this fall on The CW.
