Legends of Tomorrow has cast their Vixen for Season 2 – and we now know how she fits into the mythology!
Maisie Richardson-Sellers (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Originals) will be playing Amaya Jiwe, grandmother of Mari McCabe, the Vixen that we saw on Arrow as played by Megalyn EK. Here’s the official description for the character courtesy of the studio:
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.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 premieres Thursday, October 13 on The CW.
