‘Talks happened to bring Stargirl into Arrowverse,’ says Geoff Johns

With DC Universe/The CW’s Stargirl series kicking off last week (here’s our review), there’s already talk of taking Courtney Whitmore’s new superheroine into the wider Arrowverse.

The show was teased in last year’s big crossover event, Crisis on Infinite Earths (see video at bottom of page) but wasn’t really part of the main story, however, anyone who watches the Arrowverse shows knows that different worlds and universe (movies, TV shows, whatever) aren’t off limits and can be drawn into the bigger story with relative ease.

And it seems that Stargirl is already being eyed up as a potential to join a much bigger universe.

Stargirl creator Geoff Johns has even said that talks have happened: “We’re completely open to it.

“There’s so many possibilities…We’re set on Earth-2, and it gives us the room to tell our history and story, but also the opportunity in the future to do anything in the comic books or to always cross over with other places. Conversations have been had, but it’s all a matter of when it makes sense and if we have the best story.”

The Crisis on Infinite Earths event saw The CW’s worlds – Arrow, Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Black Lightning, Supergirl and Batwoman merging into one, big shared world while the big screen DCEU, Batman ’89, Batman ’66, Superman Returns, Green Arrow, Titans and more were all pulled into the wider story and, yes, Stargirl was briefly in there too, so this shouldn’t really be a surprise.

While I have many issues with the Arrowverse as a whole, I am constantly impressed with the shear balls on it and how it continues to grow a larger universe without ever slowing down… there’s at least two more shows on the way as we speak with the new Arrow series and Superman and Lois in production.

So, let’s hear your thoughts on Stargirl and if you would like to see her come in to the wider Arrowverse.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
