Warner Bros and DC reveal a first look at Brec Bassinger as Stargirl at this weekend’s WonderCon for the upcoming DC Universe streaming service.
The costume, inspired by the comics, is designed by Laura Jean Shannon and shows Bassinger as Stargirl Courtney Whitmore sporting the iconic Cosmic Staff. Taking a closer look at the background seems to reveal the robot leg of her sidekick Stripes, which is operated by her stepfather Pat (Luke Wilson).
The plot follows Courtney, a struggling high schooler who relocates to Blue Valley, Nebraska after her mother marries Pat. Eventually, she discovers that her stepfather used to be Stripesy, the sidekick of Justice Society of America member Starman (Joel McHale). Courtney ends up borrowing Cosmic Staff and using it to fight evil as Stargirl, inspiring a new generation of heroes in the process.
The series premiers in early 2020 also starring Henry Thomas as Golden Age Dr. Mid-Nite; Lou Ferrigno Jr. as Golden Age Hourman; Amy Smart as Courtney’s mom Barbara; Meg DeLacy as Cindy Burman, Courtney’s classmate and the daughter of the JSA’s longtime enemy, Dragon King, played by Nelson Lee; Trae Romano as Courtney’s stepbrother Mike, and Jake Austin Walker, Anjelika Washington, Neil Jackson, Yvette Monreal, Christopher James Baker, and Hunter Sansone as undisclosed DC characters.
WonderCon also saw the release date for Swamp Thing and more announced.
