Get ready to celebrate DC Comics as they are partnering with Warner Bros. Entertainment to host its DC in DC 2018 event!
During the weekend of MLK Day (January 12-13) 12, the Newseum will host the world premiere of The CW's Black Lightning several days before it premieres on The CW on January 16. Plus, there will be panels and discussions of comic-book history, Black Lightning and interviews with tons of actors from the Arrowverse!
Plus, if you get to attend the invite-only event you will get to see a screening of Batman: Gotham By Gaslight, which is DC's newest animated movie. We are for sure going to try and attend for the #CrisisCrew so that we can show you what goes on in our backyard of Washington DC!
Check out the trailer for Black Lightning below:
If you wanted to know more about who exactly Black Lightning is, don't worry we got you covered with the show's synopsis:
Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams) is a man wrestling with a secret. As the father of two daughters and principal of a charter high school that also serves as a safe haven for young people in a neighborhood overrun by gang violence, he is a hero to his community. Nine years ago, Pierce was a hero of a different sort. Gifted with the superhuman power to harness and control electricity, he used those powers to keep his hometown streets safe as the masked vigilante Black Lightning. However, after too many nights with his life on the line, and seeing the effects of the damage and loss that his alter ego was inflicting on his family, he left his Super Hero days behind and settled into being a principal and a dad. Choosing to help his city without using his superpowers, he watched his daughters Anissa (Nafessa Williams) and Jennifer (China Anne McClain) grow into strong young women, even though his marriage to their mother, Lynn (Christine Adams), suffered. Almost a decade later, Pierce’s crime-fighting days are long behind him…or so he thought. But with crime and corruption spreading like wildfire, and those he cares about in the crosshairs of the menacing local gang The One Hundred, Black Lightning returns — to save not only his family, but also the soul of his community.
Hopefully we'll see you there on January 12th!!!
