Megalyn Echikunwoke, the actress who voices Vixen aka Mari McCabe in CW Seeds Vixen animated series is making the leap over to live-action, set to appear in Arrow, as… well… Vixen. Something tells me that was the plan all along…
Arrow + Vixen Executive Producter Marc Guggenheim spoke on the news:
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.
Vixen will first appear on Arrow during the episode that airs on the February 24th 2016.
Our hope was for a solo live-action series, but this is good too.
