Brec Bassinger Suits Up as Stargirl
DC has a new live action hero in Stargirl who will be played by Brec Bassinger in the upcoming series. Stargirl will air on DC Universe and is the digital service’s sixth original series.
Stargirl is Courtney Whitmore, a kind, smart, and athletic young woman. After moving to a new school she discovers that her step-father used to be the sidekick to a superhero and she “borrows” the long-lost superhero’s cosmic staff.
The series focuses on this young hero as villains of the past aim to stop her.
The series will not only focus on Stargirl but also the Justice Society of America.
The character debuted in 1999’s Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. #0 with slight differences between that version and what will be on the screen.
This isn’t the first time the character has appeared in a live action show. She has also appeared in Smallville as well as DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. She has also appeared on Justice League Unlimited and Justice League Action.
