It Sounds Like Static Shock Could Appear In BLACK LIGHTNING; Arrowverse Crossovers A Possibility

Black Lightning co-showrunner Salim Akil has weighed in on the possibility of bringing Static Shock to The CW series and what will need to happen for crossovers with the Arrowverse to take place.

Black Lightning reaches The CW this Fall, but the series will not be set within the Arrowverse. It also focuses on a character who is a lot less iconic than the likes of Green Arrow and the Flash, but co-showrunner Salim Akil has revealed that another familiar face could make an appearance in the show.

That is Static Shock, a hero who himself has come close to the small screen a number of times over the years. "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." That would be very cool to see and with no other plans seemingly in place for Static, it would make sense for him to show up here.

As for the possibility of Black Lightning crossings paths with heroes from the Arrowverse, Akil added: "The storytelling is a little bit more political. It’s topical, and it’s a little grittier. It doesn’t mean that down the road there won’t be visits." Assuming the show succeeds, crossovers could happen then!
