It looks like another member of the original Justice Society of America will appear in season 2 of The CW’s Stargirl. According to Stargirl.TV, actor Ethan Embry has been tapped to play Johnny Thunder.
Created by John Wentworth and Stan Aschmeier in 1940, Johnny Thunder debuted in Flash Comics #1. The seventh son of a seventh son, born at 7 a.m. on Saturday, July 7, the seventh day of the week, the seventh day of the seventh month in 1917, Johnny was given the pink pen containing the genie-like Thunderbolt named Yz on his seven birthday. He would go on to have many adventures with Yz, even accidentally joining the JSA, where he became a valued member of the team.
While much of season 1 tried to convince fans that essentially all of the original JSA was dead, It was revealed in the season finale that Joel McHale’s Starman had survived. Given this, it seems possible that other members could have survived. So it’s possible Embry could appear in the present day or during flashbacks since his pen and Yz will be given to Jakeem Thunder this season.
Stargirl season one is available on the DC Universe and The CW app.
