Back during the last week of August, The CW’s superhero universe expanded a little further with the debut of the Vixen animated series on the CW Seed. The web-series was met with a lot of positive reaction from fans. Many wanted to see the Megalyn Echikunwoke to be featured in the role in live-action on either Arrow or The Flash. The character already had some interaction with them as series stars Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin, along with Emily Bett Rickards’ Felicity Smoak, reprised their roles with some voice acting on Vixen.
Well it looks like we are getting our wish. TV Insider is reporting that Megalyn Echikunwoke will be reprising her role as Mari McCabe–a.k.a. Vixen–on Arrow! She will be premiering during episode 15, which is tentatively scheduled to air on February 24th. With this season’s “theme” be that of magic and mysticism, this is certainly a great fit for the character’s debut on the show. It is also some exciting news and I know I can’t wait to see the return of Vixen!
