Not to be confused with the Disney+ movie Stargirl which just premiered, the CW and DC Universe have both released separate posters for their Stargirl. The former gives us a new look at Courtney Whitmore (Brec Bassinger) suited-up as the teenage hero, while the streaming service’s version spotlights some of her supporting characters. Guess which one The Geek prefers.
From the looks of the DC poster, Stargirl is going to join forces with some younger incarnations of the Golden Age Justice Society or America – the team her father Starman led back in the day. Here we see Anjelika Washington as Beth Chapel, aka Doctor Mid-Nite, Yvette Monreal as Yolanda Montez, aka Wildcat, and Cameron Gellman as Rick Tyler, aka Hourman.
The bottom half of the poster also features members of the villainous Injustice Society: Joy Osmanski as Paula Brooks/Tigress, Christopher James Baker as Dr. Henry King/Brainwave, Neil Jackson as Jordan Mahkent/Icicle, Nelson Lee as Dr. Ito/Dragon King, and Neil Hopkins as Crock/Sportsmaster.
We also have a trailer and two new :30-second spots:
Here is the official synopsis for Stargirl:
High school sophomore Courtney Whitmore inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. This new DC Universe series reimagines Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in a fun, exciting and unpredictable series.
Stargirl stars Brec Bassinger as Courtney Whitemore, Joel McHale as Starman, Luke Wilson as Pat Dugan, and Meg DeLacy as Cindy Burman. The series also stars Amy Smart, Trae Romano, Cameron Gellman, Yvette Monreal, Anjelika Washington, Meg DeLacy, Neil Jackson, Jake Austin Walker, Christopher James Baker, and Hunter Sansone. Geoff Johns will write and executive produce the 13-episode first season of Stargirl while Sarah Schechter and Arrowverse boss Greg Berlanti will also serve as executive producers on the series.
The new generation of justice will now hit DC Universe on Monday, May 18th, and make its broadcast TV debut on The CW the following day, Tuesday, May 19th, at 8/7c.
