Born on a Monday, a famous DC villain may be heading to an upcoming DC Universe show. According to insider Lance Ausfresser, Solomon Grundy is rumored to make an appearance in Stargirl.
The classic villain of DC Comics lore was initially an adversary of Alan Scott but has since been terrorizing the likes of Batman, Superman and several other DC characters. Although not a staple villain for Stargirl, Solomon Grundy’s potential role could indicate how far into the vast rogues gallery Courtney Whitmore will encounter. It is not clear who will be playing the villain or how substantial his role will be in the first season.
The show will follow Brec Bassinger’s Stargirl as she inspires a group of young heroes to fight villains of the past. It will reimagine the first DC superhero team in the Justice Society of America as well as their counterpart, the Injustice Society. The cast includes Luke Wilson as Pat Dugan aka Stripe, Meg DeLacy as Cindy Burman and Jake Austin Walker as Brainwave Jr.
The series in currently in production with DC comics veteran Geoff Johns at the helm as showrunner and writer.
Stargirl is expected to hit the DC Universe streaming service in 2020.
