Maisie Richardson-Sellers joins the cast of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow as Vixen. The Of Kings and Prophets star will be the second actress to appear under the Vixen moniker in the CW superhero universe.
Another character in the universe, Megalyn Echikunwoke’s Mari McCabe, has already carried the Vixen identity in Arrow, but thanks to the time-traveling nature of Legends, there will be no casting or narrative conflicts. Fans of the program will remember that the season one finale ended with the team preparing to board the Waverider, a vessel capable of time travel, only for a second Waverider to suddenly appear and crash, with the sole survivor emerging from the wreckage and warning the characters against entering their own ship. This suggests that the team’s adventures through time will lead to them crossing paths with Sellers’ Amaya Jiwe, who also happens to be McCabe’s grandmother:
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow stars Arthur Darvill as Rip Hunter, Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer/The ATOM, Caity Lotz as Sara Lance/White Canary, Victor Garber and Franz Drameh as Professor Martin Stein & Jefferson “Jax” Jackson/Firestorm, and Dominic Purcell as Mick Rory/Heat Wave. Wentworth Miller, who plays Leonard Snart/Captain Cold, will no longer appear as a series regular on the show but has instead signed a new deal with Warner Bros. TV allowing him to appear across all of their DC series on The CW.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg, Phil Klemmer, Chris Fedak and Sarah Schechter.
