JORDAN CALLOWAY UPPED TO SERIES REGULAR AS DC VILLAIN

PAINKILLER IN BLACK LIGHTNINGSEASON TWO

“PREDICTION? PAIN!”

BURBANK, Calif. (July 21, 2018) — He may have saved Freeland in season one, but Black Lightning (Cress Williams) is in for a new season of pain when Jordan Calloway returns as DC villain Painkiller in the show’s sophomore season! Guest starring as Khalil Payne in season one, Calloway’s promotion to series regular was revealed by showrunner/executive producer Salim Akil during Black Lightning’s Comic-Con 2018 panel on Saturday, July 21.

Khalil Payne was a high school All-American track star with dreams of going to the Olympics until a stray bullet severed his spine, leaving him embittered and unable to walk. Black Lightning’s archnemesis Tobias Whale (Marvin “Krondon” Jones III) offers him legs for loyalty. Khalil accepts the offer and receives cybernetic enhancements that transform him into the Painkiller, meta-strong and able to generate an anesthetic from his body that causes temporary paralysis when delivered through darts. Now, he is a living weapon for a ruthless crime boss. Before long, he pines for his old life and dreams, and his teenaged love, Jennifer Pierce (China Anne McClain).

Fans at the Black Lightning panel were electrified with the news. Akil said, “I’m thrilled to have Jordan upped as a series regular. He was a great asset to our show in the role of Khalil/Painkiller during season one, and now that he has evolved into Painkiller, I can’t wait for you all to see him in season two.”

In addition to Black Lightning, Calloway’s credits include Beyond for Freeform, Riverdale for The CW, The Mick for FOX and Pure Genius for CBS.

Black Lightning returns for season two on Tuesday, October 9, at 9/8c on The CW. Based on the DC characters, the series is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Salim Akil, Mara Brock Akil and Sarah Schechter.

SDCC 2018: Bumblebee and his Japanese cassette tapes


Transformers exclusives from Hasbro for San Diego Comic Con this year. And yes, of course it’s a Bumblebee. This Bee is a Classic Camaro, done with a special metallic gold-look finish in packaging made to resemble a cassette tape. Why, you ask? To suit the “real” stars of the set, reissues of two very rare vintage, Japanese G1 cassette Transformers! Yes, this exclusive includes reissues for the first time of Dairu and Zauru (apparently renamed Uruaz here), two dinosaur cassettes from Japan’s The Headmasters line, which could combine together to form a humanoid robot. The reissue cassettes aren’t exactly identical to the originals in color, especially for Uruaz/Zauru, but we expect collectors who hold these rarities in high esteem might not mind so much, given the chance to own them for just $60.
