Stargirl Star and EP Talk Season 2 Premiere's 'Scary' Opening Scene, How [Spoiler]'s Arrival Affects Courtney
Stargirl was fixin’ for a fight in the Season 2 premiere of the CW superhero series, and by the end of the hour, boy did she find one!

But first…. The new season opened with a flashback to “Decades Earlier,” where a young girl named Rebecca was forbidden by her mom from attending a friend’s birthday party across the street. When a (creepy af) little boy named Bruce appeared out of nowhere and goaded Rebecca into ignoring her busy mom, the lass scampered across the street.

Luke Wilson Says He ‘Never Got the Plot’ of Brother Owen’s ‘Loki’

Luke Wilson Says He ‘Never Got the Plot’ of Brother Owen’s ‘Loki’
While viewership number and box offices may paint a different picture, the all-pervasive Marvel Cinematic Universe isn’t for everyone. That appears to include Luke Wilson, who stars in DC’s CW series “Stargirl” as Pat Dugan, aka S.T.R.I.P.E., the stepfather to the title heroine. He’s also, of course, the brother of a certain MCU star, Owen Wilson, who plays Time Variance Authority agent Mobius in Disney+’s “Loki.”

In a recent press conference (via Entertainment Weekly), Luke revealed that he was living with Owen while they were filming their respective TV shows, and the experience was a strange one.

“We shared a house,” Luke told reporters. “I don’t know if you’ve ever lived with anyone in the Marvel universe but odd people. Very, very odd people.” Luke Wilson also (and partially joking) went on to say that he “never did understand

‘Stargirl: Spring Break Special #1’ Review (DC Comics)

‘Stargirl: Spring Break Special #1’ Review (DC Comics)
Written by Geoff Johns | Art by Todd Nauck | Published by DC Comics

Not content with currently hitting it out of the park over at Image with Geiger, Johns pitches up with a timely reminder that although Image are his new friends, DC are his long term best buds. He obviously made his career there, and a big part of the start of that career was a rather good book called Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E that introduced a young girl called Courtney Whitmore. This character is probably dearest to John’s heart than any other, as he modelled her on his real life sister Courtney, who tragically died in a plane crash. With that book and his use of her in Jsa (another great book) Johns established Courtney/ Stargirl as a strong enough character that she ended up with her own TV show. I’ve loved the

‘Kung Fu’ & ‘Stargirl’ Renewed At The CW

‘Kung Fu’ & ‘Stargirl’ Renewed At The CW
The CW is continuing to kick-ass with renewals.

The youth-skewing broadcaster has picked up freshman series Kung Fu for a second season and handed a third season of DC’s Stargirl ahead of its sophomore debut.

This comes as the network continues to look for stability in its scripted lineup – bringing the number of renewals for the 2021-22 season to 15 with only The Republic of Sarah, which launches in June, still pending.

The renewal of Kung Fu is not a surprise. The drama kicked off strong with more than 3.5M viewers watching the premiere episode and it had the highest total viewership number for a Wednesday debut in 7 years since The 100 debuted in 2014.

Kung Fu follows a young Chinese American woman, Nicky Shen, played by Olivia Liang, whose quarter-life crisis causes her to drop out of college and go on a life-changing journey to an isolated monastery in China.

Stargirl Season 1 Episode 13 Review: Stars & S.T.R.I.P.E Part Two

Stargirl Season 1 Episode 13 Review: Stars & S.T.R.I.P.E Part Two
That was epic.

There really are no other words to describe Stargirl Season 1 Episode 13, as the season finale was visually stunning and executed perfectly.

Along with doing a fantastic job in bringing this chapter to a satisfying ending, the new developments introduced at the end of the episode had me clambering on the edge of my seat with excitement.

Whatever comes next is sure to be entertaining.

To start, let's dissect the biggest "surprise" of all: Starman's alive.

Or well, someone who looks exactly like Starman and claims his name is Sylvester Pemberton is alive and well and walking around North Hollywood looking for Pat Dugan.

When characters magically come back from the dead on television -- especially on fantasy and supernatural shows -- we can't be surprised.

After all, there are two rules when it comes to death on TV.

One, no one is ever truly dead unless we see the body,

Stargirl Episode 13 Review: Stars & S.T.R.I.P.E. Part Two

Stargirl Episode 13 Review: Stars & S.T.R.I.P.E. Part Two
This Stargirl review contains spoilers.

Stargirl Episode 13

Stargirl’s first season, on the whole, is one of the strongest ever attempted in the DC television universe. There’s so much to love about this series, from its sunny, optimistic vibe and charming characters to its willingness to push boundaries, trust its audience, and make bold storytelling decisions. That its Season 1 finale doesn’t entirely stick the landing is probably expected – honestly, most of the Arrowverse shows never do finales terribly well anyway – but the emotional moments are as top-notch as ever, and “Stars & S.T.R.I.P.E. Part Two” does a decent enough job of tying up loose ends and putting some intriguing new pieces in place for Season 2.

The sudden return of Joel McHale’s Sylvester Pemberton will probably drive the bulk of conversation following this episode – whether he’s the real Starman, back from the (presumed) dead,
