It’s a great time to be a DC fan, isn’t it?
Arrow and The Flash are coming back, Gotham too. Legends of Tomorrow is just around the corner and Supergirl will follow close behind… not to mention Constantine is now in Arrow too.
So it’s easy to forget Vixen, the new animated series that takes place in the Arrow, Flash and Legends universe.
The man behind the Arrow-verse, Marc Guggenheim, says: “We’re gonna meet Mari McCabe in this first episode using her powers … being chased by Arrow and Flash and then we flash back to a few days earlier and discover her in jail.”
Vixen draws her abilities from the mystical Tantu Totem dangling from her neck: “This is our first opportunity to do a superhero who’s a woman and also of color. So we’re very excited about that,” says Guggenheim.
“It’s also a chance to do a character whose powers are based in mysticism.” Cough – Contantine – cough.
Megalyn Echikunwoke voices Vixen, Stephen Amell is Arrow, Grant Gustin is The Flash, Katie Cassidy is Black Canary, Emily Bett Rickards is Felicity Smoak, and Carlos Valdes is Cisco Ramon – darn it, but this sounds great.
So much Arrow-universe win.
Vixen arrives on the CW Seed on August 25th
