DC Universe Reveals The Logo For ‘Stargirl’

With so much DC Universe news coming out, it’s only fitting that something about the upcoming series ‘Stargirl’ be revealed.  But considering that this show was the most recently announced, it’s also probably the furthest away from arriving.  Even so, one tidbit was unveiled– the series’ logo, which you can see below:

‘Stargirl’ was created by Geoff Johns when he first went to work for DC Comics, many years before he became their most popular writer and ascended to a higher position in the company.  He now works in production and this was a series he had championed for a long time.  The comic book character, also known as Courtney Whitmore, was based on Johns’ own teenage sister, also named Courtney, who died in the tragic TWA Flight 800 explosion of 1996.  She and her classmates were en route to Paris on a class trip.  If that sounds familiar, this event inspired the first ‘Final Destination’ movie.

Since her introduction in the comics, Stargirl has appeared on the animated series ‘Justice League Unlimited’ and ‘Justice League Action’ and in live action on ‘Smallville’ and ‘Legends of Tomorrow’.

As for the ‘Stargirl’ series, Johns stated:

“I’ve been wanting to do it for a while, and the truth is, over the last few years as I’d been talking to Warners and DC about getting back to wanting to write and produce, this was something that was at the very top of my list.  I’ve been working with Greg [Berlanti] and Sarah [Schechter] over at Berlanti TV, and with Warner TV — I mean, I’ve been working with them for years. It’s been great. I get to work with my team at DC in a more creative way. It’s been in my head for a while, and once I made the move at DC, it came together pretty quickly.”

‘Stargirl’ joins ‘Titans’, ‘Doom Patrol’ and ‘Swamp Thing’ as original live action offerings from DC Universe.  The streaming service is also offering the animated ‘Young Justice: Outsiders’, the long-awaited third season of the show that began on Cartoon Network, and an all-new animated ‘Harley Quinn’ series.

‘Stargirl’ is expected to arrive sometime in 2019.

DC Universe is available to pre-order before it launches on September 15th.  The price is $74.99/year or $7.99/month.

Jason Motes

Jason’s earliest memory is of watching ‘Batman,’ followed shortly by a memory of playing Batman & Robin with a friend, which entailed running outside in just their underwear and towels as capes. When adults told them they couldn’t run around outside in their underwear, both boys promptly whipped theirs off and ran around in just capes. Jason’s father gamely agreed to read him comic books as bedtime stories instead of ‘Snow White.’ (Super Friends being his favorite.) Jason saw all of the original Star Wars movies (and Indiana Jones and Superman and Star Trek…) in the theaters. Yes, he is old. And grew up in the most GEEKTASTIC decade ever, the 80s, devouring a steady diet of GI Joe, Transformers, Masters of the Universe, Princess of Power and (best of all) Jem! (It totally counts as sci fi! They had a sentient computer that projected holograms!) Jason has studied literature, journalism, film history and has a degree in creative writing (and a minor in psychology) from the University of South Alabama. He has worked as a technical writer and proofreader. These days, most of his creative energy goes into his blog and writing for this site! He lives with the cutest puppies ever.
