The CW plans to ride the superhero wave until it crashes

Although CW's DC czar Greg Berlanti is involved in the project, the show apparently will not be part of the CW's Berlantiverse, a shared DC universe that features Supergirl, the Martian Manhunter, the Flash, the Green Arrow, as well as the time traveling team the Legends of Tomorrow.

"We believe we have the best superhero programming around, anywhere", CW president Mark Pedowitz told reporters Thursday as the network's 2017-18 schedule was announced.

Pedowitz calls the show "a separate situation" from the networks' other series, something which is compounded by the fact that Black Lightning films in Atlanta while the rest of the shows film in Vancouver, making a crossover even more unlikely. "But there will be a big fourth quarter crossover with all four shows that are on in the fall". 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.

That all changes when his book smart and headstrong daughter, Jennifer, is being aggressively recruited by one of the city's most terrorizing gangs and her dad has to step back onto the scene as Black Lightning.

Nafessa Williams and China Anne McClain play his daughters.

So though, Black Lightning may not be living on the same Earth as any of our current heroes, a crossover is not out of the realms of possibility. Nearly a decade later, Pierces crime-fighting days are long behind him…or so he thought.
