We have some exciting news today for the upcoming second season of Stargirl. The CW has cast actor Nick Tarabay for the role of the villain ‘Eclipso‘. Fans may remember this character was teased last season. In addition, actor Jonathan Cake has been cast as well known DC Villain, ‘The Shade‘! Check out more details on this below and let us know if you are happy about the casting choices AFTER THE JUMP!
Tarabay’s Eclipso is one of the main antagonists set to clash with Stargirl’s Justice Society of America in Season 2. Eclipso is a life essence trapped inside a blue diamond. Once owned by the Injustice Society of America, that diamond was stolen in Season 1 by DeLacy’s Cindy, which will result in problems for the JSA going forward. Eclipso is an ancient entity of corruption and vengeance. Brimming with a cold, terrifying darkness, he exploits the flaws of others, reveling in the impure and sinful, sadistically feeding off the dark side of humanity.
Cake’s The Shade, an English immortal, is a classic antihero from DC Comics who wields magical shadow powers. Tall and slim with an elegant 19th century way to his speech and manners, he masks the horrors he’s experienced and people he’s lost in all the time alive with wry, witty retorts and a false sense that nothing really matters.
Based on Johns and Lee Moder’s DC Comics character, Stargirl centers on teenager Courtney Whitmore (Brec Bassinger), who discovers the cosmic staff and assumes the identity of Stargirl. After joining the JSA, Stargirl becomes an inspiration to a new generation of superheroes.
