It looks like the CW’s DC universe is about to get a little less animated as the heroine from Vixen prepares to come to the silver screen in live-action form.
Megalyn Echikunwoke, the actress who voiced Mari McCabe, the titular hero of CW Seed’s animated series Vixen, will be bringing this character to life in live-action form when she appears on Arrow after it returns from its midseason break.
“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,” Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim tells TV Insider.
The Vixen animated series came out online over the summer and featured appearances by Oliver Queen, Felicity Smoak, and Barry Allen, who were each voiced by their live-action conterparts.
Vixen will appear on Episode 15 of Arrow’s current season, set to air on February, 24, 2016. It is unknown if there are any other plans for the character after this episode.
