When Stargirl premiered on DC Universe & CW it was a heartwarming hit with fans of the comic and television. It was a wholesome take on generational heroes trying to find their place in the world. Now we have our first look at the big bad for season two, Eclipso! Check it out below:
In one of the Season 1 finale’s multiple epilogues, Cindy aka Shiv (played by Meg DeLacy) rummaged through the dearly departed Magician’s storage locker, looking for a diamond shard inside of which seemed to reside the iconic DC villain known as Eclipso. As reported back in October, Arrow alum Nick Tarabay will play the ancient entity of corruption and vengeance, who is described as physically imposing and frightening. Brimming with a cold, terrifying darkness, Eclipso exploits the flaws of others, reveling in the impure and sinful, sadistically feeding off the dark side of humanity.
In addition to Tarabay, also new for Season 2 — which is on track to premiere this summer, exclusively on The CW — are Jonathan Cake (The Affair), recurring as Injustice Society alum The Shade, and The Flash‘s own John Wesley Shipp, guest-starring as Golden Age speedster Jay Garrick.
