DC’s Greg Berlanti is teaming up with Mara Brock Akil and her husband Salim Akil (Being Mary Jane, The Game, Girlfriends) to bring Black Lightning to the screen.
Originally created by Tony Isabella and Trevor von Eeden, this iteration of Black Lightning is coming back to the superhero life after nearly a decade in retirement. He’s been living a quiet life as a principal and the father to two young daughters, but when neighborhood crime begins to skyrocket, he decides to revive his old hero skills.
