Fans have enjoyed seeing, or rather hearing, Megalyn Echikunwoke voice Vixen in the CW Seed animated miniseries, but it was recently revealed that the actress would get the chance to bring live-action life to the character on Arrow.
From the looks of things, that’s going to be happening sooner rather than later, as Stephen Amell posted a behind-the-scenes snap from the set of the CW show giving us our first look at Miss Echikunwoke as Mari McCabe.
Apparently, we’ll first meet Vixen in episode 15 of the current fourth season, though exactly how she’ll be introduced and whether she’ll be fully powered up right from the start or not remains to be seen.
Here’s what Arrow EP Marc Guggenheim had to say about Echikunwoke joining the Emerald Archer’s adventures during an interview from last year.
“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.”
Tell us, are you looking forward to seeing the character debut on the show? Sound off below and let us know.
