"Stargirl": Starman Needs Someone Worthy to Wield His Cosmic Staff – Just "Not You", Pat [PREVIEW]

With The CW and DC Universe's Stargirl ready to fight the good fight starting Monday, May 11 (airing Tuesday, May 12, on The CW at 9 p.m. – moving to 8 p.m. beginning Tuesday, May 26), the network is offering us a fresh look at the series – but this one focuses more on Luke Wilson's Pat Dugan and Joel McHale's Starman.

As we've seen in previous previews, Starman apparently doesn't survive a major assault on the Justice Society of America – but before he passes on, he charges Pat with the responsibility of finding the right person to wield his cosmic staff (the one we've seen Brec Bassinger's Courtney Whitmore look badass sportin').

About DC Universe's "Stargirl"…

In DC Universe' Stargirl, Brec Bassinger's Courtney Whitmore finds her smooth-going high school experience derailed when her mother marries and moves the household from Los Angeles to bucolic Blue Valley in distant Nebraska. Struggling to adapt, Courtney discovers her stepfather has a secret past as a superhero sidekick. She also discovers an artifact of immense power – a long-lost hero's cosmic staff – and ends up on a journey to becoming the unlikely inspiration for an entirely new generation of superheroes.
