If you enjoyed the first web-series for “Vixen” then you should get excited since the CW Seed is giving her a second one and it is now available on the website. These are short vignettes of course and the first one in full was about thirty minutes. Take a look at the official poster for the new season along with some reminder premise and casting. I’ll toss some thoughts in to close us out later on.
The Premise: After her parents were killed in Africa by local corruption, Mari McCabe inherits her family’s Tantu Totem, gaining the powers of the animal kingdom, using them to fight as Vixen to stop threats like those that claimed her family.
Megalyn Echikunwoke as Mari McCabe/Vixen
Hakeem Kae-Kazim as Benatu Eshu
Katie Cassidy as Laurel Lance/Black Canary
Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer/Atom
Franz Drameh as Jefferson Jackson/Firestorm
Victor Garber as Martin Stein/Firestorm
Toks Olagundoye as Mari’s Mother
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I liked what I saw in the first season and I should stress that these web episodes all amounted to just over thirty minutes in length. That fact made me feel that the whole series should have simply aired as a single special to get people interested in the Arrowverse shows paying mind to this one. Since the first season was made available, Vixen did appear on an episode of “Arrow”. I won’t say which one in the event you are only just now working your way through the series and might like the surprise. I guess the same fashion will be done with the new season and have a number of short clips. Did you watch the first season? Were you game? I hope that this expands on the presentation of these kind of things and makes a closer knit DC Television Universe. Let me know your thoughts down below in the comments section. See you next time.
