Stargirl’s title star Brec Bassinger revealed her character could have appeared on The Flash this season, but a crossover episode didn’t end up happening. The entire landscape of the Arrowverse shifted with the recent Crisis on Infinite Earths event. The closing montage revealed much about other DC characters and where they fit in the universe. One of the big reveals was that the upcoming Stargirl series exists on a newly-restored Earth-2 in the multiverse.
Stargirl recently revealed the cast members who make up the Justice Society of America & Injustice Society. Both will feature heavily in the story of Courtney Whitmore, a high school student who becomes Stargirl. She’s impacted by her stepfather Pat Dugan’s (Luke Wilson) old gang. He used to be the sidekick of Starman (Joel McHale), who was sadly killed in the line of duty. The series is set to include many classic DC characters, such as Hourman, Doctor Mid-Nite, and Wildcat.
Stargirl has already appeared on both Smallville and Legends of Tomorrow, though she was played by different actresses both times. Bassinger made her debut as the character briefly in Crisis on Infinite Earths. However, before having her own solo showcase, she was also in talks to appear on this season of The Flash as part of a “bigger storyline” that didn’t move forward. “There have been talks of Stargirl getting to go on an episode of Flash, and having a bigger storyline, but it didn’t happen this season,” Bassinger said in an interview with IGN. “But I just think that would be the coolest thing. So much of my family has watched Flash for years.”
Though it didn’t end up happening this season, it sounds like the possibility of a full-blown crossover is there for next season, provided Stargirl is renewed. The series is a little different from The Flash and other Arrowverse series in that it’s a DC Universe show. The series will premiere on the streaming service each week, but then air on The CW the following day, starting May 18 and 19. This will keep Stargirl connected to the Arrowverse. It also helps that series creator Geoff Johns has said crossovers, especially between TV and film, are entirely possible, hopefully for longer than the character’s introduction in Crisis on Infinite Earths.
It would be interesting to see Stargirl’s teen heroes get the chance to mix it up with the older generation. Bassinger’s Stargirl will be one of the youngest superheros in the DC TV army. This could make for a dynamic teamup with heroes from The Flash or any other Arrowverse show. If Courtney Whitmore can figure out how to use a Cosmic Staff, she can also figure out how to stage a larger crossover with Stargirl and any of the other Arrowverse series.
