Vixen is making the jump from cartoon to live action in the critically popular DC live action universe on CW’s Arrow. Vixen will be portrayed by the same actress who voices the cartoon version the lovely Megalyn Echikunwoke.
According to Marc Guggenheim, executive producer for both Arrow and Vixen:
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.
We will first see Vixen on Arrow‘s February 24th episode. Future plans for the character are not clear at this time, I suspect a lot will depend on how the fans react to her.
