While we haven’t seen the live-action version of Vixen appear on The Flash or Arrow (yet), The CW has announced that the animated version of Vixen is getting a season two.
During the Television Critics Association press junket, CW president Mark Pedowitz confirmed more animated Vixen was on the way for the CW Seed, and that the character (played by actress Megalyn Echikunwoke) will appear in an upcoming episode of Arrow.
The bigger question is whether or not, the CW will spin Vixen off into her own series.
“At this moment, no,” Pedowitz said when asked if there is a female superhero show in the works. “But at this moment last year, ‘Legends’ didn’t really exist. Time will take its toll. There will be a moment in time. I don’t know when it’s going to come. But when Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim say, ‘We think it’s time,’ we’re going to give them an opportunity to do that.’”
If Vixen doesn’t get her own series, Pedowitz hoped the character would at least be able to join the Legends of Tomorrow cast.
The Flash returns to the CW on January 19th, Arrow on the 20th, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow on the 21st. There was no definite word on when Vixen’s second season would be released on the CW Seed.
