Christine Adams has been cast to play Lynn Stewart, the ex-wife of the titular hero in the CW's Black Lightning, according to Deadline. Reportedly, Adams' character "exhudes confidence and intelligence", and "although she's got a mischievous side, she's not one to be trifled with when it comes to family."
If this casting is confirmed, Adams would join Cress Williams, Nafessa Williams, and China Anne McClain, who were previously cast in the respective roles of Black Lightning/Jefferson Pierce, Anissa Pierce, and Jennifer Pierce.
Adams previously had a key role in ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as Agent Weaver, and also appeared in Heroes, TRON: Legacy, and Batman Begins.
The CW has not scheduled Black Lightning's television debut.
