Black Lightning Creator Endorses Orlando Jones


Orlando Jones has spoken before about his desire to play the DC Comics character Black Lightning and recently spoke about it again and the fact that the creator Tony Isabella has endorsed him for the role.

You’re a big comic book fan, let’s say you get the chance to play any character – Marvel, DC, Valiant are all making movies now… What’s your number one pick?

OJ: Right now I gotta go Black Lightning. He’s an interesting character that I think hasn’t been explored a lot. He’s a DC character, which I love, and I think there’s so much potential for that.

And actually, the creator, Tony Isabella, sent me a message on twitter and said he wants me to play that role!

Well there we go! We’ll get the campaign started right here, right now, Orlando Jones for Black Lightning!

OJ: Dude, let’s do it. Let’s make it happen.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
