A new report indicates that yet another character is on the way to DC Universe’s Stargirl… and he may have been born on a Monday.
According to known insider Lance Ausfresser, Solomon Grundy will be appearing on Stargirl in season 1. No information on who will be playing the hulking menace, but he last appeared in live-action form on Gotham and was played by Drew Powell. Beyond not knowing who will play Grundy, there is no word as of yet as to how many episodes he will appear in.
Solomon Grundy has become a bit of a ‘he’s everywhere’ villain in DC lore. He first appeared in All-American Comics #61 as an enemy of the Alan Scott incarnation of Green Lantern. Since then he has probably become most closely associated with Batman, but seems to pop up just about anywhere at this point.
Stargirl is shaping up to be what looks like an interesting series mixing both old and new characters. Luke Wilson grabbed the role of Pat Dugan, aka Stripe, while other casting announcements have included Joel McHale as Starman, Brian Stapf will be suiting up as Wildcat, and Lou Ferrigno Jr. is Hourman. And Stargirl/Courtney will be getting some friends and family Meg DeLacy as Cindy Burman and Jake Austin Walker in an unknown role, and Amy Smart was announced as Courtney’s mom, Barbara. Meanwhile, it appears that Stella Smith will be playing Artemis, and Hunter Sansone will be Icicle Jr.
This is going to be one very crowded series it seems.
Stargirl has yet to receive an official premiere date, but recent reports have pointed towards a debut in 2020.
