Geoff Johns teased that we could eventually see major Justice Society of America members like The Flash and Green Lantern in Stargirl.
The Justice Society of America is about to play a big role in DC Universe and The CW’s upcoming Stargirl series. We’ve known that Starman and Mid-Nite will appear in the series, but what about the prominent members of the superhero team like Jay Garrick’s The Flash and Alan Scott’s Green Lantern?
In the most recent Stargirl trailer, we do see a photograph of the JSA, which includes a glimpse at The Flash and Green Lantern. In a recent interview with IGN, series co-creator Geoff Johns had this to say about The Flash and Green Lantern potentially appearing in Stargirl:
“[Green Lantern and Flash] are spoken of and they exist in the JSA. There’s a picture of them in the first episode, and there’s plans in the future for things, but Jay Garrick and Alan Scott, to me, are always the elderly statesmen. They’re the big heroes of the JSA and their shadow is very long and they’re great characters. They are a part of the original JSA and their legacies will be felt throughout the show. I don’t want to spoil too much about it, but I can leave it at that.”
