This weekend, DC Comics unveiled the first look at the star of the upcoming DC Universe series Stargirl in costume.
Brec Bassinger has been tapped to play the lead in the upcoming series Stargirl. Stargirl/ Courtney Whitmore is described as:
“Smart, athletic and above all else kind. This high school teenager’s seemingly perfect life hits a major speed bump when her mother gets married and her new family moves from Los Angeles, California to Blue Valley, Nebraska. Struggling to adapt to a new school, make new friends and deal with a new step-family, Courtney discovers her step-father has a secret; he used to be the sidekick to a superhero. ‘Borrowing’ the long-lost hero’s cosmic staff, Courtney becomes the unlikely inspiration for an entirely new generation of superheroes.”
The suit is designed by Laura Jean Shannon, who also designed the costumes for DC Universe’s Titans and Doom Patrol, as well as Black Lightning and it is delightfully comic accurate. Judging from the background, it looks like we will be seeing S.T.R.I.P.E in the series as well with Luke Wilson being cast as Pat Dugan.
Stargirl will premiere on DC Universe in early 2020.
