  • Road Trip - The fourth issue in The CW's six-issue approved comic series following the individual stories of the heroes from their 2021 television slate. The stories build to one giant final issue where all of the "Arrowverse" characters unite to face one epic foe. Road Trip is loosely based on the appearances of DC Stargirl's cast, and seemingly takes place after the events of Season 2. The comic is written by DC's Stargirl writers James Robinson and Paula Sevenbergen and is available for purchase as of May 17, 2022.[3] It remains to be seen if the events of the comic are canon to DC's Stargirl, or comic writers using the idea of the DC multiverse to culminate a new story separate from the television series.[4]

Notes and Trivia

  • Stargirl is the only DC Universe series to also air on The CW.
    • Because of this, the first seasons budget is noticeably bigger than other superhero shows on The CW.[5]
    • This budget was slightly altered for the second season, though HBO Max picked up part of the budget in a joint agreement with The CW.
  • Stargirl's suit is designed by costume designer Laura Jean Shannon, who also designed the costumes for DC Universe's Titans and Doom Patrol, as well as, Black Lightning.
  • Episodes aired on DC Universe were longer than episodes aired on The CW, due to editing cuts for commercial breaks.
  • The prop and costume department, among others, were able to build a real fifteen-foot armored robot for Pat Dugan's alter-ego, S.T.R.I.P.E. The armor is so realistic and sturdy, that visitors can climb on the robot and sit inside the pilot controls with the doors either open or shut. The robot is used for still shots, while the scenes of the robot moving are added in with CGI.[6]
  • On January 14, 2020, Courtney and the Modern Age Justice Society of America made a brief cameo during The CW's Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event.
    • During the crossover, it was confirmed Stargirl resides on Earth-2 post-crisis, in the new multiverse.
    • On March 30, 2020, Arrowverse boss Marc Guggenheim who explained that the DC Universe/"Earths" "was created with the "expectation that they never have to participate in a crossover on The CW". Furthermore, there would be "creative assurances” that they should secure before appearing in large crossover events in the Arrowverse. Accordingly, the cameo appearances of the DC Universe characters in the Crisis crossover [is] a one-time thing."[7]
  • On January 28, 2020, the season episode titles and screenwriters were revealed. However, they were not listed in the order of airing.
  • On March 25, 2020, The CW began marketing Stargirl as "DC's Stargirl".
  • On March 26, 2020, DC Universe and The CW moved the official air date of Season 1 from May 11-12, 2020, to May 18-19, 2020.[8]
  • On June 30, 2020, DC Universe released an official Stargirl merchandise store. The merchandise included mugs, t-shirts, posters, and puzzles. It can all be purchased from the DC Universe shop, located at this link.
