DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Casts Their New Vixen


Variety has learned that for the upcoming sophomore season of DC's Legends of Tomorrow they have cast Maisie Richardson-Sellers as their new Vixen.

Now fans would note that there is already a Vixen played by Megalyn Echikunwoke, who headlines CW Seed’s animated “Vixen” series and appeared in live-action on “Arrow,” but unfortunately due to scheduling conflicts she was not available to shoot for the second season.

Instead Maisie will be playing the series regular role of Amaya Jiwe, the grandmother of the present-day Vixen, Mari McCabe played by the above Megalyn. Like her granddaughter, Amaya’s powers are derived from the mysterious Tantu Totem, which allows her to magically access the abilities of animals.

Also joining the show for Season 2 is Nick Zano, who was recently cast as Dr. Nate Heywood, a historian whose grandfather was the hero known as Commander Steel, a member of the Justice Society of America.

Richardson-Sellers is best known for her role as Eva Sinclair on fellow CW drama “The Originals.” She also starred in ABC’s shortlived Biblical drama “Of Kings and Prophets” and appeared in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
