It has been announced that the mystical hero Vixen will be joining the ensemble cast of “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” for its second season. Now while the name is familiar the face will not be. The CW introduced the character of Vixen on a season four episode of Arrow and was portrayed by Megalyn E.K. But it will NOT be Megalyn E.K. portraying the character in Legends. Actually, it’ll be a completely different incarnation of Vixen entirely.
Unfortunately, E.K. is already committed to other projects and is unavailable to fill the role. But never fear, thanks to the time-traveling theme that runs through the very veins of Legends, the team will be encountering a different, earlier version of the character. How’s that for creativity? The role has not yet been cast so there are currently no other details to the appearance or who shall be playing the part.
Should be interesting to see how it shakes out.
It is, however, confirmed that E.K. will again be voicing the animated version Vixen in the second season of the CW Seed animated series.
“DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” season two is scheduled to resume in the fall on The CW.
