The heroine with the glowing gold staff is ready for action. And also high school.
Recently, the CW dropped the newest trailer for Stargirl, featuring Brec Bassinger as Courtney Whitmore, a normal-ish teen who has to take up the mantle of Starman (Joel McHale), the worldâ€™s greatest hero, because she, mysteriously, has the power to wield his magic staff. She also has to deal with a new stepdad, who was Starmanâ€™s sidekick, as it turns out, and the stress of a new school, new friends, etc. Itâ€™s a lot to handle.
While still not precisely awing in its presentation or tone, this does seem pretty fun, though the degree to which the trailer starts like a stereotypical teen comedy movie is pretty striking. That is, yâ€™know, until the superpowers show up. At least the CW has a good track record with teen drama, though thereâ€™s no hint of Riverdaleâ€™s zany melodrama here.
, which has Geoff Johns as its showrunner, will be airing on the CW starting on May 14, a day after it premieres digitally via DC Universe. There’s no current word on where it will air in Australia.
