Yeah, no mention of DCU plus the announcement that she's to show up in Crisis makes it an Arrowverse show.

I guess? Lot's of DC shows/movies have made it into the Crisis series. I guess they are all part of that multiverse now.Haz wrote: ↑ Yeah, no mention of DCU plus the announcement that she's to show up in Crisis makes it an Arrowverse show.

Stargirl Producer Geoff Johns Is "Completely Open" to Arrowverse Crossover
For those unawares, Geoff Johns is really big in DC comics (as a writer), and briefly served as president.DC's Stargirl made its debut on both DC Universe and The CW this week, but it's not the first-time fans of the Arrowverse have seen this iteration of Courtney Whitmore. The young superhero made her Arrowverse debut of sorts at the end of "Crisis on Infinite Earths" when it was revealed that the events of Stargirl take place on another world within the Multiverse, specifically a newly Earth-2. While the primary world, Earth-Prime, is unaware that a new Multiverse exists, for fans the potential for a future crossover between the Arrowverse's heroes and Stargirl is exciting and it's also a possibility that showrunner Geoff Johns is "completely open" to.
To Everyone About To Watch Stargirl –
I know you have real life concerns to deal with, as we all do, so if you are watching these I hope it’s to take a break from it and I’d encourage you to watch Stargirl with your family. It’s what the show was created for and what the show is about -- and, quite frankly, right now is the time to be with family.
My entire career began with heroes. A cold call to Superman director Richard Donner’s office landed me an internship that eventually led to me being Dick’s assistant in 1996. During that first year working for him, my sister - Courtney - was killed in the TWA flight 800 disaster. Courtney was on her way to France as a foreign exchange student. She was 18. She was smart, funny and endlessly enthusiastic. Dick bought my ticket home to Detroit and told me I would have a job waiting for me in Los Angeles whenever I was ready to come back. That fall, we shot a film called Conspiracy Theory in New York. He invited my parents to the set and put them in the movie. It was the first time I remember them smiling and having fun since my sister’s death. Dick was my hero for that.
A year later, I sold my first comic book proposal to DC Comics. It was called Stars & S.T.R.I.P.E.. The premise, which is also the premise of the show, was that teenager Courtney Whitmore’s mother, Barbara, marries mechanic Pat Dugan and Courtney (reluctantly) moves with them from Los Angeles to Nebraska. In Nebraska, Courtney discovers that her new step-father used to be a superhero sidekick and steals his partner’s old stuff, taking it for a joy ride. Ultimately, Courtney takes on the mantle of Stargirl and Pat is forced to come out of retirement and becomes a sidekick to his step-daughter as S.T.R.I.P.E. It is a story about how family is created by bond, not blood. Stargirl was, obviously, named after and inspired by my sister, Courtney. It is her spirit and optimistic energy that I wanted to put back in the world with Stargirl. It is celebratory, forward-looking and positive. And I hope that comes through when you watch these episodes.
I’ve written a lot of superhero stories in my career, but this is by far the most personal on every level. The cast, crew and everyone involved has given their talent and passion to bringing Stargirlto life and I couldn’t be more grateful for them. I think their hard work paid off and, at the very least, I hope you smile a few times while you watch Brec Bassinger, playing Courtney, and Luke Wilson, playing Pat, take up their mantles individually and together.

I feel like some Arrowverse shows started well. The first 2 seasons of Arrow and the first season of Flash were amazingly good. Legends of Tomorrow got better once Rip Hunter left the show, and they decided to lean heavy on the crazy. Most everything else has devolved to Superhero 90210 at this point

Arrowverse mostly seems like it was outsourced to CW, where at best, they need to check in and see if they can use certain characters/arcs. The people involved have stronger ties in TV production/entertainment. They borrow ideas from comics, but mostly shape things as they please to tell the story they want within a restrictive budget.

I hope they never do a crossover with the series flash/supergirl/heroes of tomorrow. Dumbing down stargirl to fit a crossover would damage the series.
