StarGirl is set to premiere on DC Universe, the PAY streaming service, then appear on The CW the very next day for FREE, according to Variety. What-the-What!? I’d drop that pay service like a hot potato, if I were actually paying for it. (I was gifted the service, I’m not bootlegging it) Right now they are only doling out one new ‘original content’ episode a week. So is this a wise move on their part?
What does this mean for DC Universe going forward? Will all their ‘original content’ be coming to The CW? -Minus the F-bombs and nudity of course… Nobody knows yet. But if it does, can you say; ‘Why buy the cow if you get the milk for free?’ A conspiracy theorist may surmise that Warner Bros is torpedoing little DC Universe because HBO-Max is on the horizon. But that theory sounds bizarre at best. So what’s really going on here?
“Stargirl” follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore (Brec Bassinger) as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. It also stars Luke Wilson, Amy Smart, Trae Romano, Cameron Gellman, Yvette Monreal, Anjelika Washington, Meg DeLacy, Neil Jackson, Jake Austin Walker, Christopher James Baker and Hunter Sansone.
Sounds like a superhero version of ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer.’ And it’s funny that they didn’t even mention the show at San Diego Comic-Con this year. I was at the DC Universe Panel, and there was no teaser or name drop. Stargirl was totally ghosted. So does this new revelation mean we may see a trailer on the CW during their Crisis On Infinite Earths crossover? Keep your eyes peeled I guess… Anything’s possible.
