‘Jay Garrick’ to Appear on DC Universe’s ‘Stargirl’ Series

Another iconic hero may be speeding his way onto DC Universe’s Stargirl! According to Titans Access on Instagram, Jay Garrick is set to appear in the first season of the DC Universe series, kicking off sometime in 2020. The series stars Brec Bassinger as Courtney Whitemore, Joel McHale as Starman, Luke Wilson as Pat Dugan, Meg DeLacy as Cindy Burman, Lou Ferrigno Jr. as Rex Tyler, Brian Stapf as Ted Grant with Anjelika Washington, Neil Jackson, Hunter Sansone as Icicle Jr., Yvette Monreal as Yolanda Montez, Christopher James, and Jake Austin Walker as Brainwave Jr. 

Created by writer Gardner Fox and artist Harry Lampert, Jay Garrick first appeared in Flash Comics #1 in 1940. Garrick was the original Flash and has been a member of the Justice Society of America, the All-Star Squadron, and Justice League International. The character also appeared on The CW’s The Flash, portrayed by John Wesley Shipp. That version of Garrick was an alternate version of the Flash from Earth-3. 

From creator Geoff Johns, Stargirl follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. This new drama will reimagine Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in an unpredictable series.

Stargirl will begin streaming on DC Universe in 2020.
