Seeing the initial information for The CW’s newest DC comic series, Black Lightning, I was a little skeptical. I’m a big fan of Cress Williams’ previous work (Friday Night Lights, Living Single, ER), but seeing him in the glowing super suit wasn’t really reassuring. Damn, was I wrong?

The 3rd Black Panther Trailer Keeps The Anticipation Going
It’s not as good as the last two trailers, but it’s still slick enough to make you spend $10 on a ticket. A lot of riding on this movie. It’s the Wonder Woman of 2018 with a lot of Black people praying this predominant African superhero is given the same treatment as the others in the Marvel […]
