The CW and DC Universe have been rolling out preview after preview for their upcoming live-action Stargirl, set to take flight in just a bit more than a month (May 18 on the streaming service, following day on the network). One thing that all of them have had in common is that they've given us a sense of historical context as to what the cosmic staff is and why it chose Brec Bassinger's Courtney Whitmore to be its next wielder and to inspire the next generation of justice. In the following teaser, we get a better look at what that "next-generation" looks like when Courtney and stepdad Pat Dugan (Luke Wilson) aka big robot muscle S.T.R.I.P.E. begin to assemble a new Justice Society.
Joining Courtney and Pat in the fight for truth, justice, and just being decent to one another are Anjelika Washington's Beth Chapel aka Doctor Mid-Nite; Yvette Monreal's Yolanda Montez aka Wildcat; and Cameron Gellman's Rick Tyler aka Hourman. Of course, if you have a superhero team the there has to be an equal-yet-opposing team of supervillains (that's just how these things work). Meet the Injustice Society, the villains that took down the original JSA and who have every intention of repeating history: Henry King aka Brainwave (Christopher James Baker); Paula Brooks aka Tigress (Joy Osmanski); Lawrence "Crusher" Crock aka Sportsmaster (Neil Hopkins); Dr. Ito aka Dragon King (Nelson Lee); Jordan Mahkent aka Icicle (Neil Jackson).
