The official DC Universe website has updated with the announcement that Anjelika Washington will be joining the cast for the upcoming DC Universe exclusive Stargirl series. For those who are not aware, the series was first announced at San Diego Comic Con 2018. Earlier this September, it was revealed that Brec Bassinger will be playing Stargirl in the series.
Currently her character is under wraps, however it is stated that she will be someone “familiar to DC Comics fans!”
The official DC Universe website provided a description for the series.
“Stargirl follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. This new drama reimagines Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in an unpredictable series. The project focuses on the character that started executive producer Geoff Johns’ career as a comic book writer when he created her in 1999, lovingly inspired by his late sister, who was killed in a 1996 plane explosion.”
The Stargirl series will launch on DC Universe in 2019.
