Stargirl of DC has found two of its primary villains, The Shade and Eclipso, the upcoming second season of the series on The CW. Nick Tarabay, previously worked in The Expanse will be playing the regular series role of Eclipso and Jonathan Cake, previously worked in The Affair, will be recurring as The Shade. In addition to this, Ysa Penarejo previously worked in Project Mc2 will be recurring as an undisclosed DC character.
The creator of the show, Geoff Johns, has teased that the upcoming Eclipso and The Shade characters earlier this month at the New York Comic-Con. Johns said that Eclipso is so terrifying that he has always loved the character, and he is a very different antagonist or villain than the Injustice Society of America.
He added that The Shade is the most powerful among all of them and very threatening because no one exactly knows what he wants. Tarabay’s Eclipso is one of the main antagonists set to clash with Stargirl’s Justice Society of America in the second season of the series.

Eclipso is a life essence that is trapped inside a blue diamond. The blue diamond, which was once owned by The Injustice Society of America, was stolen in the first season by DeLacy’s Cindy, which will be resulting in problems for the JSA going forward.
It is an ancient entity of vengeance and corruption, brimming with a terrifying and cold darkness; he exploits the flaws of others, revealing in the sinful and impure, 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.
Slim and Tall with an elegant 19th century way to his speech and manners, he masks the horror he has experienced and people he has lost in all the time alive with wry, witty reports and a false sense that nothing really matters. Based on Lee Moder and Johns’ DC Comics character, Stargirl centers on the teenager Courtney Whitmore, whose role is played b Brec Bassinger, who discovers the cosmic staff and assumes the identity of Stargirl.
In addition to Bassinger, the series stars Luke Wilson, Amy Smart, Yvette Monreal, Anjelika Washington, Neil Jackson, Cameron Gellman, Trae Romano, Jake Austin Walker, Hunter Sansone, Meg DeLacy, and Christopher James Baker.
