Legends of Tomorrow has found its Vixen in actress Maisie Richardson-Sellers.
Of course, we’ve seen Vixen before in the Arrowverse. That one was Mari McCabe played by Megalyn Echikunwoke. This new Vixen is Amaya Jiwe the grandmother of Mari.
The official announcement from The CW and WBTV says, “Amaya Jiwe – better known as Vixen – is the newest superhero to board the Waverider and join the ranks of the Legends of Tomorrow. Like her granddaughter, Mari McCabe, Amaya’s powers are derived from the mysterious Tantu Totem, which allows her to magically access the abilities of animals.”
Maisie Richardson-Sellers has previously starred in roles in The Originals and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. She joins the time-traveling crew of Legends which has been significantly dwindled by the exit of Captain Cold, Hawkman, and Hawkgirl at the end of Season 1.
Season 2 of Legends of Tomorrow premieres on Thursday, October 13, 2016 at 8pm EST on The CW.SuperFable
