Stargirl at WonderCon
Brec Bassinger as Courtney Whitmore/Stargirl looks as comics-perfect as it could get. The image from WonderCon shows her in her iconic suit and wielding her cosmic staff! This isn’t our first time seeing Stargirl in live-action, but so far this one already looks the best.
The DC Universe show is also bringing along an all-star cast for the series. Just like they did for Doom Patrol… I’m sorry I keep bringing it up! It’s just that good! Besides Bassinger as the title character, Luke Wilson as Pat Dugan and Joel McHale as Sylvester Pemberton/Starman are the big names being brought on to portray iconic characters, even if for limited appearances.
A Growing Universe
This will be the fourth live-action show DC Universe launches, with Swamp Thing to launch May 31st, that continues to build out their streaming universe following Titans and the amazing Doom Patrol (I know, I lied about mentioning it again). There are similarities to their Arrow-verse and the long-loved Smallville universe, but the differences are starting to become more prevalent.
With each series so far, even with their animated series, they are allowing the shows to feel different and they are letting the weird be weird. They can let each show have its own vibe, and that’s what makes me so excited for Stargirl. I’m not up to date on that character, but knowing Geoff Johns, the creator of the character, will be guiding this show makes me believe it will follow suit with the other DC Universe shows.
What do you think of the first look at Stargirl? Do you think the DC Universe shows will cross over? Are you excited for Swamp Thing? What other characters would you love to see get their own show? *cough* Booster Gold *cough* Let me know in the comments down below!
