Deadline is reporting that Yvette Monreal and Christopher James Baker are the latest names to join the cast for DC Universe series Stargirl.
Stargirl was created by Geoff Johns back in 1999, known as Courtney Whitmore, who receives her powers by wielding Starman’s Cosmic staff and wears the Cosmic Converter Belt which gives her agility and enhanced reflexes. The character has appeared in animated series such as Justice League Unlimited and appeared in live-action form in the final seasons of Smallville and also during the second season of CW’s Legends of Tomorrow, portrayed by Sarah Grey. The television series version sees high school student Whitmore band together with the Justice Society of America to fight villains, past and present.
The report doesn’t state what roles Yvette Monreal (whose credits include Lowriders and Rambo: Last Blood) and Christopher James Baker (whose credits include True Detective and Ozark) will be playing in the series. The duo will join recently cast Brec Bassinger.
The Stargirl series has been ordered for a thirteen-episode season, aiming for a 2019 premiere release date and will be produced by Warner Bros. TV, Geoff Johns’ Mad Ghost Productions and Berlanti Productions.
