The CW's Arrow is bringing in DC superherone Vixen -- and they're using the character's voice-over actress from the recent Vixen animated series to do it. According to TV Insider, Megalyn Echikunwoke will reprise her role as Vixen in an episode of Arrow early next 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,” said Arrow and Vixen executive producer Marc Guggenheim.
The recent Vixen cartoon on the CW Seed was already set inside the Arrow-verse continuity, but bringing her over to live-action -- with the same actor -- is unique.
Echikunwoke will reportedly make her live-action debut as Vixen in February 24's episode of Arrow.
