One of the empty seats on the Waverider will be filled by the superhero Vixen.
TVInsider has learned that Legends of Tomorrow will add the heroine who can use the spirit powers of animals to its ensemble cast in Season 2.
Vixen has already appeared in live action on Arrow, however the same actress — Megalyn Echikunwoke — won’t be portraying her on Legends. Instead, the Vixen of Legends will be an ancestor of the current Mari McCabe and played by an actress yet to be named.
Megalyn E.K., who voices Mari McCabe on CW Seed’s animated Vixen, is too busy with upcoming film and TV projects to be a part of Legends. The door is still open, however, for Megalyn to portray the current Vixen on any of the shows in the Arrowverse should her schedule permit.
Legends of Tomorrow is set to begin its second season this fall on The CW.SuperFable
