A little shallow on the comic news. But be sure to check out ComicCorp tonight as we review our Top Five Favorite TV (comic book themed) Episodes of all time, as well as an in depth discussion about the shows that brought them to the table and the ones that make them keep coming back.
DC TV Castings – Both “The Flash” and “Black Lighting” announced major casting announcements, with Marvin ‘Krondon’ Jones III being tapped to play Tobias Whale in “Black Lighting”, and “The Flash” casting Sugar Lyn Beard playing Hazard.
The CW released the following press release for the casting of “Black Lighting”, saying;
Tobias Whale, an African-American man with albinism, is the leader of Freeland’s most feared gang — The 100. But in the days before Black Lightning, Tobias was a politician, rising up the ranks of local government through corrupt and illegal means. That was until he was brought down by Alvin Pierce, Jefferson’s father. Enraged, Tobias murdered Alvin and was driven underground into exile. It’s here he found a place to rebuild, growing into the violent and methodical leader of The 100 as we find him today. But Black Lightning’s recent return has ignited Tobias’ desire to emerge from the shadows and face his biggest adversary, Jefferson Pierce AKA Black Lightning.
Opinion: We’ll wait and see how these castings go.
