According to my entertainment world, Black Lighting will go into production at the latter part of this year (August to be precise) to be premiered next year. They also mentioned that the film’s location will Atlanta and all indicates that the film might debut January of next year.
Currently, there are no plans to incorporate Black Lightning into the ever growing DCTV universe, but who knows, things might change once the show starts.
