Mari McCabe, also known as Vixen, is coming to Arrow this season. Currently appearing on the animated series of the same name based at CW Seed (CW’s digital platform), the character is voiced by Megalyn Echikunwoke, who will be playing the live-action version of the character in Arrow.
TVInsider report that Echikunwoke will be making her debut in the 15th episode of the season. Of the casting, executive producer Marc Guggenheim (who also serves as EP on the Vixen web-series) said “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.”
The episode is expected to air on 24th February in the United States, and in March in the UK.
