Arrow Season 4 Promo Shows Live-Action Vixen’s Arrival in Star City

Arro

Character Mari McCabe becomes Vixen through the power of the Tantu Totem, worn on a necklace she inherited from the parents she never knew. The totem gives her the ability to draw on the abilities of animals, giving her the right amount of strength, speed, or agility just when she needs it. The official synopsis for “Taken” reveals that she’ll also be able to use her animal connections to find Darhk’s secret location.The DC heroine can currently be seen in animated form on the web series Vixen, available on streaming service CW Seed. The voice actress Megalyn Echikunwoke (also known as Megalyn E.K.) will also take on the live-action role on Arrow. You can get a closer look at the costume in E.K.’s Instagram above, and the presence of a stuntwoman means we’ll definitely be seeing her “kick ass,” as promised in the video clip up top.The original Arrow promo image of Vixen shows a ghostlike image of a wolf hovering next to her, similar to how the web series animates her different manifestations. The CW has done pretty well with a low effects budget, so hopefully the live-action scenes can incorporate this imagery in a non-cheesy way. CW President Mark Pedowitz has indicated Vixen might go on to join the Legends of Tomorrow team, and that decision will likely depend on how well the character comes across in this installment of Arrow. We’ve only gotten a tiny clip of her, but so far she seems pretty amazingly badass.NEXT: CW President Teases Vixen’s Live-Action TV Show FutureArrow returns with episode “Taken” on February 24, 2016. Vixen will continue on CW Seed later this year.Source: The CW
