TV Guide Magazine reports that CSI: Miami star Megalyn Echikunwoke has been chosen to voice Vixen, a.k.a. Mari McCabe, in the upcoming Vixen animated series. Several of the CW’s live-action heroes such as Arrow‘s Stephen Amell and The Flash‘s Grant Gustin will be voicing animated versions of their characters. The series is set to air on the CW’s online channel CW Seed, has a six-episode first season overseen by Arrow show runner Marc Guggenheim.
I love that we get to expand the universe. We started off with Arrow, which is very grounded, then The Flash introduced the concept of superpowers to this universe, and now Vixen will introduce the concept of magic We’re continuing to build and expand the tapestry that we have to play with.”
Unfortunately, there has been no reporting on whether or not Echikunwoka will be playing Vixen in live-action television such as in one of the CW’s shows Arrow, The Flash or DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, but given the inter-connectivity, Guggenheim alludes to and the actress’ background on television it seems to be a possibility.
