New set photos reveal the first look at Henry Thomas’ Doctor Mid-Nite costume on Stargirl, showing off the founding member of the Justice Society of America.
Although Stargirl‘s debut has been pushed back because of the coronavirus, Specialty Costume Designer Laura Jean Shannon and her team have revealed the first look at Henry Thomas as Doctor Mid-Nite on the DC Universe series. Doctor Mid-Nite is a founding member of the Justice Society of America and a different version of the character previously appeared in Legends of Tomorrow. The character is blind but can see perfectly in the dark and is also an incredibly skilled surgeon.
Henry Thomas will play Doctor Mid-Nite on Stargirl when it finally arrives and the first look at his costume recently surfaced online. The photos came courtesy of the costume designer on the series, showing off his iconic cape, cowl and goggles combination. The photos also show the costume’s red torso, although it isn’t clear whether Henry Thomas will have the iconic moon symbol on his forehead. Take a look at Stargirl‘s Doctor Mid-Nite below.

Some behind the scenes looks on the set of Stargirl. LJ and ACD Sarah will always visit the set for the start of filming to “establish” characters, like Doctor Midnite Golden Era seen here. Meaning that she ensures that each character is dressed and styled to her exact vision, and that is what will remain the standard for the rest of the season! #dc #dcuniverse #dcustargirl #stargirl #cdg #cdglocal892 #cwstargirl
