Coming just four days after the announcement that Matthew MacCaull will be joining DC’s Legends of Tomorrow as the Justice Society of America member, Commander Steel, IGN has revealed that Sarah Grey has been cast as the fourth JSA member, Stargirl (the other two being Patrick J. Adams’ Rex Tyler, aka Hourman, and Maisie Richardson-Sellers’ Amaya Jiwe, aka Vixen). Now, only two other previously announced members have yet to be cast: Dr. Mid-Nite and Obsidian.
Stargirl is the identity of one Courtney Whitmore, the daughter of divorced parents. She made her first appearance in Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. #0 in 1999 and was created by the new president of DC Entertainment, Geoff Johns. She doesn’t have any powers but wields Starman’s Cosmic Staff which grants her the ability to manipulate energy, fly, and levitate objects, and wears the Star-Spangled Kid’s Cosmic Converter Belt which grants her enhanced strength, agility, speed, and stamina. Courtney also made several appearances in the final two seasons of Smallville, played by actress Britt Irvin.
Also, today, executive producer Marc Guggenheim released a photo on his Twitter account showcasing the official table for the JSA, the famed superhero group set in the 1940’s. Here it is:

Grey was recently seen in Lucifer, iZombie, and If I Stay. She’ll also be making an appearance in the anxiously awaited Power Rangers film premiering in 2017.
After ending the reign of the Time Masters by destroying the all-seeing Oculus, the legends have decided to be the protectors of the timeline themselves. Soon, however, they will meet the Legion of Doom, a group of enemies (and a friend) from their pasts who have their own malicious agenda.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will return on Thursday, October 13th, at 8/7c on The CW.
