Sofia Vassilieva (Supergirl) is joining Black Lightning as a character called Looker.
In the comics Looker is a hero who joins the Outsiders and had a number of different incarnations including as a vampire. The show hasn’t revealed anything about their take on Looker so we’ll just have to wait and see.
Salim Aki, Black Lightning’s showrunner did have this to say though:
“It’s really going to be interesting, the way we approach that story…. I think people will enjoy it, but also be challenged by it.”
Vassilieva was recently seen on Supergirl as a member of a religious cult that came into conflic with the Girl of Steel.
Black Lightning returns to the CW Tuesday, Oct. 9 at 9/8c
