Legends of Tomorrow showrunners originally wanted Mari McCabe (Megalyn E.K.) for the show's sophomore season but scheduling conflicts prevented E.K. from reprising the role.
So what was the solution? A storyline was developed to introduce McCabe's grandmother Amaya Jiwe (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), a Justice Society of America member and previous wielder of the Tantu Totem - the mystical artifact that allows its holder to tap into the abilities of any animal.
Though she couldn't commit to a full-blown supporting role, Megalyn did state that she'll be returning to voice season 2 of the CW seed animated Vixen series and didn't rule out a guest spot on LoT. Given the time travel angle of the show, what are the odds McCabe and a young-Jiwe meet?
