Vixen makes her live action debut in Arrow photos

Last year The CW released a short animated series based on DC’s superhero Vixen featuring the likes of Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin reprising their roles of Green Arrow and The Flash in animated form. Now, Megalyn Echikunwoke, who provided the voice of the title hero, will be making her live action debut as Vixen in next week’s Arrow and The CW has just released the first photos from the episode!

Titled “Taken,” the episode is officially described as follows:

“Oliver realizes he needs help battling Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough) so he calls in an old friend – Vixen (guest star Megalyn E.K.). Using her magical ability to summon animal powers, Vixen gets a lock on Darhk’s location and the team goes to war. Meanwhile, Thea has a heart-to-heart talk with Malcolm.”

Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, Katie Cassidy as Dinah “Laurel” Lance, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, John Barrowman as Malcom Merlyn, with Paul Blackthorne as Detective Lance. The series is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg and Sarah Schechter.
