Black Lightning is coming to The CW next year, and as production and promotion starts to ramp up, showrunner Salim Akil has revealed a bit of love for a fan-favorite character. He’s revealed that he hopes to have Static Shock appear in the show sooner, rather than later.
Static has come close to the small screen several times in live-action since his acclaimed animated series ended many years ago. This would be a great way to bring him into the fold.
I love the idea of Static Shock, and in success, hopefully, we’ll be able to pull other characters in that way. So I’m holding out hope because I love that character.
