Jada Pinkett Smith has had her taste of the superhero world, with her appearance as Fish Mooney on the first season of Gotham. And she definitely doesn't want to stop there. She wants her chance at the DC Cinematic Universe and she doesn't waste any time. She has already picked out which female heroine she wants to play.
While speaking to the MTV UK at the press tour for Magic Mike XXL, she stated that she would be perfect for the role of her chosen superhero. She said:
" There's a character that I love in the DC world, her name is Vixen. Probably haven't heard much of her. She's kind of in that Suicide Squad world as well. I love Vixen. If there was any character... I would love to play her. I am going to have to put in my little word to the director: 'Vixen for Suicide Squad 2.'"
And honestly, she has a decent chance as the role of Vixen. Because, if you haven't put two and two together, her husband knows the director. Her husband, Will Smith, is starring in the first Suicide Squad, which is still in production. Smith is starring as Floyd Lawton a.k.a. Deadshot.
Now, let's get a little back story on Vixen. She was born Mari Jiwe McCabe and was raised in a small African village. She has the ability to control any animal that she wants to. And she was featured in the Justice League Unlimited animated series.
In my opinion, I think Jada Pinkett Smith would be a great choice for the role as Vixen. What do you think?
