BLACK LIGHTNING Executive Producer Wants STATIC SHOCK To Appear On The Show

Though very similar, Black Lightning controls electricity, while Static Shock wields electromagnetism - opening the door for a seriously geeky team-up, should the latter ever cameo on The CW show.

The CW's new Black Lightning superhero series is off to a strong start in both ratings and critic reviews.  That has the show's executive producer, Salim Akil,  looking to the future with talk of a desire for Static Shock to cameo.  With Black Lightning not part of the Arrowverse, there's the possibility of The CW creating a new superhero universe, a Lightningverse, so to speak.  After all, who knows how long Arrow will continue and the ratings for The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow are both down this year.

"..we want to entertain. I know this show is topical and it has some political merit to it, but we also want to entertain and make people laugh and get them excited about the fight sequences, and the characters that are coming in, as well as the villains that are coming in. We hope it will be a well-rounded experience so yes, we’d love to see other superheroes come through.  Static could be interesting."

The two African-American lightning heroes met for the first time in the animated Young Justice series on Cartoon Network.  It would certainly be cool to see the pair have a live-action meeting on The CW's Black Lightning.
