A few days after a teaser made its way online, the first official Stargirl trailer made its way to the show’s broadcast home – The CW – and features our first look at several characters in action.
The series, which will also run on the DC Universe platform, will appear in “Spring 2020” on The CW, home of many DC TV shows. The trailer premiered during the Crisis Aftermath special hosted by Kevin Smith, where Stargirl/Courtney Whitmore’s creator, Geoff Johns, spoke a bit about the casting of the series. (Courtney is based on Geoff’s real-life sister, also named Courtney, who tragically passed away far too young.)
“I looked at so many casting tapes and people that came in. Actually Brec Bassinger — she plays Stargirl, she’s amazing —right when I saw her, I was like, ‘That’s her’,” Johns recalled.
“She actually is a superhero to me. She’s an amazing actor to work with. She embodies like a heroic nature, [is] super nice, and incredibly talented. But it was her humor and heart that came through in that tape. Then, she came in and read for us live and it just confirmed everything that I felt,” he said.
