Back in August the CW introduced the DC heroine Vixen to their Arrowverse in an animated feature on the CW Seed. It stared House of Cards alum Megalyn Echikunwoke as well as featured they voices of Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin. At the time there was talk that the character, if well received, could make the jump to the live action universe. According to TV Insider, that time is now.
"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 Marc Guggenheim, executive producer of both shows.
