"Black Dynamite" Soon To Be The Baddest Mofo in Toon Town

By Scott Tre

When the trailer for Black Dynamite first appeared, many felt that there was no way a feature length film could deliver on the promise of such an inspired concept.  I imagine that as those same skeptics breathed a heavy sigh of relief after initial viewings of the film, the animated sequence during the ending credits created a similar sense of anxiety.  It was funny and hinted at just how well the concept of Black Dynamite lends itself to animation, but surely it would be folly to think that such momentum could be maintained for the duration of a series. 

Well who is to say that lightening can't strike twice?  Carl Jones, producer of The Boondocks, has been preparing a Black Dynamite animated series for Cartoon Network's "Adult Swim" block of programming.  Earlier today, released some exclusive stills from the upcoming series and they look very promising.  Peep Cream Corn riding shotgun with Black Dynamite in the second image.  Then again, that would be hard to do considering the ultimate fate of that character in the movie.  Well, if Cream Corn does make an appearance, hopefully he'll be voiced by Tommy Davidson.

Dy-no-mite! Dy-No-Mite! (Sorry, I couldn't resist)
