Today, during Geoff Johns’ panel at this summer’s Comic-Con International, we learned the fourth live-action series heading to the forthcoming DC Universe streaming service would feature none other than Courtney Whitmore, aka Stargirl. Now, DC has released the very first piece of key art for the show.
The image features Stargirl in full costume, with an appropriately themed display of fireworks going off in the skies above Washington D.C.
The series will feature Courtney Whitmore uncovering the secrets of her family and the Justice Society of America. It will debut in 2019 with a 13-episode Season 1, developed by Johns’ production company, Mad Ghost. The hero debuted in 1999, a co-creation of Johns and Lee Moder. Stargirl’s appearance and mannerisms were inspired by Johns’ sister, who was among the victims of TWA Flight 800 in 1996.
Stargirl joins the previously announced Titans, Doom Patrol and Swamp Thing live-action dramas. Other original content already announced includes an animated adult-aimed Harley Quinn series and a new season of the fan-favorite Young Justice cartoon, sub-titled Outsiders.
The release date for DC Universe is still set for “fall 2018,” and at launch, the platform will be made available for iOS and Android devices, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, and Android TV.
