The CW has announced that Megalyn Echikunwoke has been cast to voice the character of Vixen in the upcoming animated series that will appear on the CW Seed. The series will exist in the Arrow / Flash universe created on the CW network and both of the titular characters from the live action series will appear in the animated. Marc Guggenheim who executive produces both shows will also be the lead on Vixen.
Echikunwoke has been very busy the last few years having been a recurring character on House of Lies, Made In Jeresy, Mind Games, The Following and upcoming on Damien. From the looks of it the actress could easily play the part in the live action shows as well. The Vixen series will be six episodes long that make up a 30 minute story telling how Mari McCabe becomes a hero.
Appearing on Vixen will also be Stephen Amell, Grant Gustin, Emily Bett Rickards and Carlos Valdes.
