The character has been wanted for television for so long that Marvel head Kevin Feige once pitched a show way back when. However, Geoff Johns goes on to talk about his excitement for the upcoming series:
Geoff Johns: I always wanted to do this, I always loved comic and I loved TV and film, and I always wanted to merge the two, to be able to do that. And Stargirl being the first character I created, I always wanted to do a Stars and S.T.RI.P.E. TV show. Like when I first– I pitched you that!
Dan DiDio: I know you did!
Geoff Johns: When I first met Dan he was at this animated company called Mainframe, that did ReBoot. I met him and I pitched him Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E.. I said, ‘This would be a great TV show.’
Stargirl will stream exclusively on DC Universe
