The CW Seed Presents: “Freedom Fighters: The Ray” SDCC Trailer

I didn’t rush to share this one with the readership because the only release information that was unveiled was “the Fall” so I felt I could address other posts and get around to this when I could. So here we are with another CW Seed web episode offering and this one is called “Freedom Fighters: The Ray”. Much like the previous superhero webisodes around “Vixen”, “FFTR” takes place as a part of the Arrowverse in some sense. Check out the trailer below and then enjoy some of the revealed voice casting.

The Premise: Raymond “Ray” Terrill is a reporter who discovers a genetic light bomb in his investigation of a secret government project attempting to harness the power of light and weaponize it. The bomb goes off, and instead of killing him, gives him light-based powers, and he is recruited to join the Freedom Fighters.

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.

Hey there friends of the online streaming of programming, I wanted to make sure that all of you fans of the live action series “Arrow” and “The Flash” might have some interest in this new animated web-series that is online as of today. It’s focused on the DC Comics superhero Vixen who some fans might remember as a member of the “Justice League of America” a couple of decades ago. The poster of her looks cool and shows us that both Green Arrow and The Flash are going to be a part of the show meaning its in the “Arrowverse” and I like that a lot.

The Premise:
