After a pretty successful run on CW Seed, Vixen will make her live-action debut on Arrow. According to TV Insider, Megalyn Echikunwoke is returning to the role of Vixen; she voiced the character in the animated web series on CW Seed.
Executive producer (Arrow, Vixen) Marc Guggenheim, says: “We’re not only thrilled to be further expanding our DC television universe by bringing in the live-action incarnation of the CW Seed hit, Vixen, we’re immensely excited that Megalyn will be revisiting her role as Mari McCabe.”
Mari McCabe (Vixen) has already interacted will Grant Gustin’s The Flash and Stephen Amell’s Green Arrow in her her animated mini-series, so she’s already integrated into the CW-verse. Vixen is set to make her live-action debut in 15th episode of Arrow’s 4th season, which is tentatively scheduled to air on February 24th. It has not been confirmed that Vixen will appear in other shows such as The Flash or DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, but we have our fingers crossed!
