The titular hero of CW Seed’s animated series Vixen is coming to The CW’s live-action superhero drama, Arrow.
Megalyn Echikunwoke, the actress who voiced Vixen in her animated debut, will bring the character to life in live action form when Arrow 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 was already firmly set within the CW’s Arrowverse of DC Comics characters, and featured appearances by Oliver Queen, Felicity Smoak, and Barry Allen, each voiced by their live action actors.
Vixen will make the trip from Detroit to Star City for Episode 15 of Arrow’s current season, set to air on Feb. 24.
