Vixen To Join Arrow, Played By Vixen Cartoon Voice Actress

The crossovers between various Arrowverse are set to continue in an unexpected way. Megalyn Echikunwoke, who voiced the titular character in the animated series Vixen, which launched on the CW’s online streaming platform, CW Seed earlier this year, will reprise her role in live-action on Arrow in this season’s 15th episode, reports TV Insider.


“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,” says executive producer Marc Guggenheim.

Vixen (real name Mari McCabe) has the power to mimic the abilities of animals thanks to a mystical amulet she’s inherited. Both Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin lent their voices to the animated series, so you could say it’s already part of the Arrowverse continuity but it’s unclear as yet whether that will be acknowledged in the Arrow episode.

Meanwhile, reports that Matt Nable will reprise his Arrow role as Ra’s al Ghul in the ninth episode of DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow, the fact that he’s dead in the Arowverese being no problem in a time travel show…
