During a recent interview with at the ATX Television Festival in Austin, Black Lightning showrunner Salim Akil told the International Business Times that he hopes his character gets to hang out with some of the other heroes of the DC Universe eventually. Specifically, he name-dropped Virgil Hawkins, commonly known as Static, who is a young character originally published under the Milestone imprint in the '90s. Static was the lead on Static Shock, an animated series that ran from 2000-2004. Like Black Lightning, Hawkins has electricity-based powers. Akil said, “I love the idea of Static Shock, and in success, hopefully, we’ll be able to pull other characters in in that way."http://comicbook.com/2017/06/15/black...http://www.wochit.comThis video was produced by YT Wochit Entertainment using http://wochit.com
