DC superheroes are headed to the nation’s capital Jan. 12 and 13 to explore the intersection of comic books and culture!

The weekend will feature stars and producers from Warner Bros. DC TV shows like “Arrow” and “Flash," and culminate with the world premiere of “Black Lightning,” based on the first African-American DC Superhero to have a stand-alone comic title.

The monumental event, happening over Martin Luther King Jr. weekend, will take place in the Warner Bros. Theater at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, followed by an after party at the National Museum of African-American History and Culture.

Cast members Cress Williams, China Anne McClain, Nafessa Williams, Christine Adams, Marvin “Krondon” Jones III, Damon Gupton and James Remar will all be there, along with executive producers Salim Akil and Mara Brock Akil.
