ARROW Casts VIXEN Voice Actress As Live-Action Character

VIXEN is moving from animated series to a live-action ARROW appearance!

The CW’s Arrow will soon be bringing the DC Comics heroine Vixen into action and they’re turning to a character expert to get the job done!

Megalyn Echikunwoke, who voices the title character on The CW Seed’s web series Vixen, will be joining Team Arrow for an live-action turn as the character. Vixen aka Mari McCabe has the ability to mimic the abilities of any animal she wishes, which means flight, strength, and a whole lot more!

Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim shared has excitement with TV Insider:

“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.”

Megalyn Echikunwoke has previously had roles in The Following, CSI: Miami, 24, and the 90210 reboot series, so she’s no stranger to stories filled with action and tension.

We don’t know what will drive the heroine from Detroit to Star City, but we’ll find out once her Arrow appearance airs on February 24, 2016.
