Stargirl Makes a Shining Impression for the DC Universe & CW Network

GameStop, Inc.

Slated to be a new series on the DC Universe App premiering on Monday, May 18, 2020, Stargirl make its network debut on The CW Tuesday, May 19, 2020 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The pilot follows Courtney Whitmore (Brec Bassinger) based on the DC Entertainment comic character who is a member of Earth-2’s Justice Society of America (JSA).

Geoff Johns is not only the showrunner and executive producer of Stargirl, he is also the creator of this character back in 1999, inspired by the loss of his sister, who died in a plane crash in 1996.

The pilot begins 10 years ago with a Christmas car chase as sidekick Pat Dugan (Luke Wilson) contacts the original Starman aka Sylvester Pemberton (Joel McHale) over a CB when even more trouble befalls the JSA. Wildcat (Brian Brian Stapf), Hourman (Lou Ferrigno Jr.) and Dr. Mid-Night do battle against The Wizard (Joe Knezevich) and his fiendish friend, Tigress (Joy Osmanski).

Starman has it under control until Brainwave (Christopher James Baker) gets in on the action, during the scuffle, Starman is stabbed leading to Dugan and Starman escaping in his 1956 Buick Special coupe, the duo are chased by Solomon Grundy! Mind you, we haven’t even hit the 5-minute mark and we already have seen several members of the JSA, The Flash’s helmet and boatload of villians, including Sportsmaster (Neil Hopkins).

As Starman passes, Dugan makes a promise that someone will receive that powers of cosmic staff. It’s then that we find out Dugan has married Barbara Whitmore (Amy Smart), the mother of, you guessed it, our future heroine, the soon to be Stargirl!

Now a tumultuous relationship between step-father and step-daughter as the child of the original Star Spangled Kid is chosen by the cosmic staff and needs to be trained by the side kick of the members of the JSA as they move to a new state and start a whole new life as one big dysfunctional superhero family.

Quite frankly, Stargirl is everything I wanted Titans to be. It’s lighter tone, it’s cheekiness and humor is what the other DC Universe series could have used. Bessinger is dazzling as Stargirl and her ability to play of Wilson is exactly what this series needs to be a hit. There are a million spoilers I could give on what’s to come and what’s floating around the pilot episode, but let someone else ruin it for you. This is going to be a fun show that has a strong super heroine without the posturing of most female lead character films and series trying to remind everyone, “SEE! SHE’S STRONG TOO!” We know she’s strong, she’s the star!

Johns has a gift for taking smaller or forgotten characters and revitalizing them. He did it with the Green Lantern and The Flash comics, he’s done it with Titans and he’s doing it with Stargirl and for that, my Lebanese brother, I thank you habibi.

There of course has to be an oblivious mom, a pain in the behind younger step-brother and all the problems that faces a high school student moonlighting as an extremely powerful superheroine saving the day while still trying to figure out her new surroundings. This series is definitely set to record on my DVR, even after watching it the previous day on the DC Universe App.
Only the best electric hedge trimmer can guarantee you of the ability to trim hedge overgrowth with immense ease. Unlike manual scissors or the ultra heavy gasoline units, here you get to use much less physical stamina.
We all know that men do not care as much about grooming as women do, grooming must be a daily priority for men. Whether it is cleaning, shaving, hair, but is very important to have the right equipment for example the best manscaping tools

Stargirl premieres Monday, May 18, 2020 on the DC Universe App and on Tuesday, May 19 2020 at 8 p.m. ET/T on The CW.

  • Overall Score


Stargirl is everything we’ve ever wanted from a DC Entertainment series. It’s light, humorous and tells an episode story that we hope to follow for many seasons to come.
