DC Universe has yet to launch, but it has already added a sixth show to its superhero-fueled roster of programming.
The latest of which is Stargirl and the news broke during a San Diego Comic-Con spotlight panel for Geoff Johns.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, the series will span 13 episodes and follows high school student, Courtney Whitmore who rounds up an unlikely group of heroes to take down villains of the past.
Whitmore first appeared on Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. #1.
Johns is on board to write and executive producer the show, and yes, Greg Berlanti will also executive producer with his Berlanti Productions banner.
We think it's fair to say that Berlanti is officially the busiest person in the industry.
DC Universe already dropped a trailer for Titans earlier today at Comic-Con, and it got everyone talking.
Robin uttered the F-bomb when someone spoke about Batman. That's certainly a different way to take things!
It was recently confirmed that DC Universe will launch later this year, and will give fans access to movies, TV shows, and comic-books.
“DC Universe is so much more than a streaming service. It’s a welcoming place for everyone to immerse themselves in their own level of DC fandom, with the epic characters, stories and experiences they have come to expect from DC,” Jim Lee, chief creative officer of DC Entertainment, said in a statement at the time.
“We are investing in and creating original, high-quality shows including the new Titans series, and curating the most beloved nostalgic content, while at the same time elevating the comic reading experience to new heights. Nothing this robust has ever been offered to fans before.”
