SDCC 2019: Black Lightning

We were able to catch up with the cast of Black Lightning at San Diego Comic Con. Series stars Cress Williams, Christine Adams, China Anne McClain, Nafessa Williams, and Jordan Calloway were all on hand to talk about the upcoming season with our favorite electrifying heroes.

First up, Black Lightning himself, the charismatic Cress Williams (Jefferson Pierce).

The lovely Christine Adams (Lynn Pierce).

Next up, fashionista China Anne McClain (Jennifer Pierce/Lightning).

The dynamic Nafessa Williams (Anissa Pierce/Thunder).

Next, one of the biggest, baddest “Big Bads” to ever grace the screen, the implacable Marvin ‘Krondon’ Jones III (Tobias Whale).

Finally, after a radically exhaustive arc during the last season and a mysterious future looming in the next season, we have the magnetic Jordan Calloway (Khalil Payne/Painkiller).

Black Lightning returns to The CW for its third season in the fall.

Assignment Editor, East Coast. I don't binge-watch, I power-watch. I'm a major television junkie, but I love movies, too. I embraced my geek style in the new millennium and have run with it ever since. I have been working in the entertainment industry since forever, but it hasn't dulled my sense of wonder whenever I watch a great movie or an absorbing television show. I love genre -- in particular, I love vampires, the supernatural, and some slasher pics. I also love comedies -- they make life easier. I've been traveling with Whedonopolis since 2007 and writing for the site since 2008.
