One of the big questions for me coming out of the Crisis on Earth-X event is what all of it means for the upcoming CW Seed animated series, Freedom Fighters: The Ray. Some of the things we knew going into the season would be the inclusion of actor Melissa Benoist to voice Overgirl. But, the voice of the Ray was not done by Russell Tovey. He hadn’t been cast yet when the trailer was made. Mind you he only has 2 lines in the trailer, but there are only six lines in the whole 3 minutes anyway.
With Overgirl being killed at the end of the event… the questions becomes when will the series takes place? Is the footage of the trailer being scrapped? Or is this going to tell the story of how Ray Terrill from Earth-1 ends up being a superpowered resistance fighter on Earth-X? What about the characters of Citizen Cold (Wentworth Miller) and General Schott (Jeremy Jordan), will they appear? And the more recently released promo image:
What does the inclusion of Vibe (Carlos Valdes) mean? Word is that the executives producers are still trying to figure that out as well. According to EW.com:
No official word yet on whether Wentworth Miller, or even Jeremy Jordan, will lend their voices to the animated series — at least not in the first six episodes, anyway. Rumor has it the show is still figuring out the continuity of The Ray’s timeline given Melissa Benoist is slated to voice Overgirl, even though the character died in the crossover.
Sounds like they’re just as confused. The series doesn’t have a release date yet and the CW Seed also has the Matt Ryan lead Constantine animated series coming up too. We’ll have to wait and see how all of this will pan out.
