Arrow & Flash Animated Spinoff – VIXEN Trailer!
Announced earlier this year from The CW comes The Flash & ARROW animated spin-off, VIXEN! We finally have the first trailer for the upcoming animated series set in the same universe as ARROW, The Flash, and DC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW. The series stars Megalyn Echikunwoke as the titular hero along with voice work from The Flash and ARROW themselves, Grant Gustin and Stephen Amell, and is set to run for six episodes with a debut on August 25th.
The Flash star Carlos Valdes also lends his voice as Cisco Ramon, who uses his ability to concoct superhero names to dub Mari McCabe as VIXEN. The show will also feature ARROW stars Katie Cassidy and Emily Bett Rickards voicing Black Canary and Felicity Smoak, with Marc Guggenheim serving as executive producer. Take a look at the first trailer, and stay tuned for more on Vixen before it debuts in August. Enjoy!
Originally from Africa, Mari McCabe’s (Echikunwoke) parents were killed by local greed, corruption, and wanton violence, but the orphaned Mari refuses to succumb to the terrors surrounding her. Inheriting her family’s Tantu Totem, Mari can access the powers of animals – anything from the super-strength of a gorilla to the speed of a cheetah. As Vixen, she fights valiantly to protect the world from threats like those that claimed her family.
