Megalyn Echikunwoke Confirmed To Play Live-Action VIXEN On ARROW

The CW DC Universe (DCTV) continues to expand as Megalyn Echikunwoke is now confirmed to bring her animated superhero counterpart to Arrow. Read on to find out details on when Mari McCabe will make her debut. Did we just get one step closer to a Birds of Prey spinoff?

Megalyn Echikunwoke, the voice of the titular hero in the animated Vixen series on The CW Seed is confirmed to make the transition to live-action on The CW's Arrow.  The animated digital series is considered canon so it will be interesting to see how Arrow references the first meeting between Oliver Queen, Barry Allen and Mari McCabe which occurred during last season. It stands to reason that quite  a few Arrow viewers didn't get a chance to watch the digital series so the Arrow showrunner may chose to minimize how much the initial encounter between Green Arrow and Vixen is referenced.  Of course, with the addition of Vixen, the CW-verse gains another candidate for that often rumored, Birds of Prey spin-off.

Arrow showrunner Marc Guggenheim had this to say on the addition of Echikunwoke.  "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."

Echikunwoke is scheduled to appear in the 15th episode of Arrow, currently scheduled to air on February 24th on The CW at 8/7c.
