‘Black Lightning’ Casts James Remar, Damon Gupton As Series Regulars

The CW’s Black Lightning is adding two new faces to its cast.

James Remar (Dexter) and Damon Gupton (Criminal Minds) are joining the network’s upcoming DC drama from producer Greg Berlanti, as revealed at Comic-Con International in San Diego. Executive producers Salim Akil and Mara Brock Akil broke the news during the show’s presentation this evening.

Remar is set to play Peter Gambi, a friend and father figure to Jefferson Pierce, a.k.a. Black Lightning. Meanwhile, Gupton is taking on the role of Inspector Henderson, the highest-ranking detective on the force whose role in the community puts him at odds with the titular hero before the two eventually become allies.

The series also stars Cress Williams as Black Lightning, China Anne McClain as Jennifer Pierce, Nafessa Williams as Anissa Pierce and Christine Adams as Jefferson’s ex-wife, Lynn.

Black Lightning is scheduled to premiere mid-season 2018 on The CW.

Heroes We Want To See In ‘Legends Of Tomorrow’ Season 3

**This article contains spoilers for the Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 finale.**

The Season 2 Finale for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow aired recently (check out my review if you haven’t already) and it certainly left things off on an interesting note. But now’s the time to look to the future. It’s time to look ahead to Season 3.

Legends showrunner Phil Klemmer recently teased new characters appearing in Season 3. That’s what’s great about this type of show is the ability to regularly swap team members in and out. It helps keep the show fresh. As Klemmer puts it, in this show, “the only thing that has to remain is the Waverider.” The DC universe is packed with awesome characters that would be perfect for an appearance in Legends and this show provides the unique opportunity to introduce DC superheroes and villains from any place and any time. Whether it be the past, as was the case with recurring characters like Jonah Hex or the Justice Society of America, or the future, as we saw with Connor Hawke in Season 1, this show can make it work. So, we thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the characters that could possibly appear on Legends of Tomorrow Season 3.

First, though, a couple of disclaimers. Some of these characters are more likely to actually appear on the show than others, but all of them could work with a little creative writing. Some of these people might have appeared in the Arrowverse before, but not on Legends of Tomorrow (for the most part). Some might make more sense in a one-off appearance while some could work as potential new season-long team members. Finally, I didn’t include any of the characters that are already appearing in the DCEU films.

So, without further adieu, here are the 10 heroes we want to see in Legends of Tomorrow Season 3. Hit the next button below to begin!
