WATCH: Meet Stargirl’s Justice Society of America in new posters and trailer

April 1st, 2020 by Marc Comments

Stargirl looks like it’s really aiming for the teen superhero fan market and I, for one, cannot wait to sit and enjoy it with my kids.

The PR for series is starting to really ramp up as we now have two new posters (above and bottom) and a trailer for the DC Universe and The CW DC series.

The poster above gives us our first good looks at all the newest characters to join the DC TV univese. The poster, thanks to Superherohype for the breakdown, features, from left to right, Pat Dugan (Luke Wilson) appears below his S.T.R.I.P.E. armor. Courtney Whitmore/Stargirl (Brec Bassinger) takes the primary spot, Beth Chapel/Dr. Mid-Nite (Anjelika Washington) appears on her right. Additionally,  Yvette Monreal appears as Yolanda Montez/Wildcat directly below Wilson; while Cameron Gellman’s Rick Tyler/Hourman can be seen below Dr. Mid-Nite.

The villains take the lower part of the poster. From left to right, Joy Osmanski appears as Ms. Brooks/Tigress; Christopher James Baker as Dr. Henry King/Brainwave; Neil Jackson as Jordan Mahkent/Icicle; Dr. Ito/Dragon King; and Nelson Lee as Crock/Sportsmaster.

This looks like a hyper-real, fun take on a comicbook tale and with loads of fun cameos, it’s going to be well worth a look.

Amy Smart will also star on the series as Barbara Whitmore, Courtney’s mother and Pat’s new wife. Additionally, Joel McHale will portray Sylvester Pemberton/Starman. The series will also depict Starman’s final battle. Years later, Courtney is chosen by Starman’s Cosmic Rod to become Stargirl. However, Stargirl’s debut draws the attention of the JSA’s old foes. Fortunately for Courtney, she’s also got some help on the way.

Stargirl will premiere on DC Universe on Monday, May 18. The CW will broadcast the series the next day on Tuesday, May 19.

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….
