    The two Vixens look similar.

    Vixen season two starts this Thursday, right? I believe the CW's President stated that he would've liked to see Vixen season one air as a half-hour special on TV once it finished releasing online. Since it didn't happen, he was hoping that would happen for season two. I really hope this happens with both seasons since fans from Canada and other regions can't watch the episodes online because they are region locked.

    I was so excited for this show last year and I couldn't watch a single episode. One year later, the second season is coming out and I'm in the same position. Myself and various other fans can't watch this show or likely the upcoming Freedom Fighters: The Ray show.

    Even though Canada just received an air date for Justice League Action ahead of the US doesn't mean this happens often. I just hope we 'international' fans are recognized when it comes to content with limited availability. Not to complain or anything. I just want to watch this show too. Hopefully a TV release is still possible.

    Everyone who can watch Vixen on Thursday and the sequential Fridays, please do so. And please enjoy it for those of us who can't at the moment.

    UPDATE:
    There may be plans for Vixen to release outside of the CW Seed! Here's hoping international fans can enjoy it soon.

    It's cool they're working on a way international fans can view the show legally.

    I forgot about the CW Seed YouTube page which uploads previews and featurettes. Nice to see they're doing the same for the 2nd season of Vixen.

    Hey, we'll finally get to see an animated Felicity :D.

    I find it ironic that Black Canary's designs doesn't look all that different from the photoshop version released when season 1 was going :sweat:.

    Atom's animated look seems a lot more streamlined.

    "General" Eshu? I wonder if he's actually a version of General Maksai from the comics o_O?

    Got to see the entire season 2 miniseries w/my bro and his roomie yesterday. Subsequently, I'd read where they were thinking of putting it on CW itself as a half-hour special last year, didn't do it, but want to do it this season. I say, put seasons 1 & 2 together for a 1 hour special.

Home Entertainment brings you the animated feature, VIXEN: The Movie, on Digital HD on May 8, 2017, and on Blu-ray (including Digital HD copy) and DVD on May 23, 2017. VIXEN: The Movie is priced to own at $19.98 SRP for the Blu-rayTM and $18.94 SRP for the DVD.

    VIXEN: The Movie combines the first two seasons of the CW Seed digital series into a single uniform story and includes 15 minutes of all-new, never-before-seen content. The special features include a brand new featurette and two Vixen-focused episodes of Justice League Unlimited handpicked by super hero animation icon Bruce Timm.

    Produced by Warner Bros.’ digital studio Blue Ribbon Content, VIXEN: The Movie features Megalyn Echikunwoke (CSI Miami, The 4400, Damien) as the voice of Vixen/Mari McCabe. She is joined by the voices of Stephen Amell (Green Arrow), Grant Gustin (The Flash), Emily Bett Rickards (Felicity Smoak), Carlos Valdes (Cisco Ramon), Katie Cassidy (Black Canary), Victor Garber (Martin Stein) & Franz Drahmeh (Jax) collectively as Firestorm, and Brandon Routh (The Atom), reprising their roles from Arrow, The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

    Originally from Africa, Mari McCabe grew up an orphan after her parents were killed by local greed, corruption and wanton violence. But Mari refuses to succumb to the terrors surrounding her. Inheriting her family's Tantu Totem, Mari can access the powers of animals – anything from the strength of a gorilla to the speed of a cheetah. As Vixen, she fights valiantly to protect the world from threats like those that claimed her family.

    “VIXEN: The Movie gives fans the action sequences and the characters that they all fell in love with in Arrow and The Flash,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, Television Marketing.

It was written by Wendy Mericle (Arrow), Keto Shimizu (Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow), Brian Ford Sullivan (Arrow), Lauren Certo (The Flash), Nolan Dunbar (Arrow), Sarah Tarkoff (Arrow) and Marc Guggenheim, with Guggenheim and Shimizu serving as story editors.

    Extra 15 minutes - Hmm, maybe it's either more flashback material or the fight they were off to in the finale.
