We have the Vixen animated series which takes place in the same universe as Arrow and The Flash, and now it’s now learned that the live-action version will soon make her appearance.
TVInsider.com has the scoop in that the actress who voices Vixen, Megalyn Echikunwoke, will also play the character on TV.
“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,” Marc Guggenheim, executive producer of both shows, said in a statement.
It’s reported Vixen will first appear on the February 24th episode of Arrow.
You can catch up on the animated Vixen series over at CW Seed and watch a “Who is Vixen” video below.
Originally from Africa, Mari McCabe’s parents were killed by local greed, corruption, and wanton violence. But the orphaned 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 super-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.
