We're super-excited for the CW's new lady superhero web series 'Vixen'
Oh Comic Con, dear, sweet Comic Con, you are making this weekend fun even for those of us who are thousands of miles away from all the hubbub in San Diego.
We just saw the trailer for “Vixen,” an animated spinoff of “The Flash” and “Arrow,” that will debut this August 25th online on CW Seed. Megalyn Echikunwoke will be voicing Mari Jiwe McCabe, who is given the “Tantu Totem,” a necklace that bestows upon her “all the powers of the animal kingdom” but only if the wearer uses the totem to protect the innocent.
Fun fact: both The Flash and Arrow appear in the animated series and are voiced by the actors who play their live-action counterparts, Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin.
All right, let’s watch a video!
Is anyone getting serious Batman: The Animated Series vibes from this teaser? We promise that’s a huge compliment, Vixen, anything that gives us ’90’s nostalgia is good in our books.
