Good news! Megalyn Echikunwoke is set to voice Mari McCabe, aka Vixen, in the upcoming animated series! Marc Guggenheim, who works as a producer for both CW hits, Arrow and The Flash, stated that Vixen’s story will be a “coming of age tale.” Vixen the animated series will also feature the voices of Grant Gustin (Barry Allen), Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen), Emily Bett Rickards (Felicity Smoak), and Carlos Valdes (Cisco Ramon).
I'm so happy with Megalyn Echikunwoka voicing Vixen. But I also think it's telling that her physical features fit the Vixen character. Having said that, what are my chances of getting her on Arrow in the flesh in S4? I have an uncontrollable desire to have Megalyn Echikunwoka and Ciara Renée in scenes with David Ramsey. These are the type of scenes Arrow is severely lacking that are indicative of my representation in the superhero TV verse. Let's fix this mindset in season 4.
