The Saturday schedule for the 2015 Comic-Con International in San Diego is out, and within, there’s the first real description for the upcoming CW Seed Vixen animated series.
What makes this cooler is that actors from Arrow and Flash are confirmed to be involved – including some we didn’t hear about before! Here’s the write-up. Look for Vixen to be spotlighted at Saturday night’s big DC panel.
Originally from Africa, Mari McCabe’s parents were killed by local greed, corruption, and wanton violence. But the orphaned Mari refuses to succumb to the terrors surrounding her. Inheriting her family’s Tantu Totem, Mari can access the powers of animals-anything from the super-strength of a gorilla to the speed of a cheetah. As Vixen, she fights valiantly to protect the world from threats like those that claimed her family. This six-episode series debuting on CW Seed this fall, featuring the voices of Stephen Amell (Arrow), Grant Gustin (The Flash), Emily Bett Rickards (Arrow), and Carlos Valdes (The Flash). It follows Mari’s path as she first learns to embrace her incredible abilities and discovers the source of the mysterious Tantu Totem’s power.
