A leather-clad Megalyn Echikunwoke looks fierce as she shows her character’s animals-related power in the image.
A day after Stephen Amell shared the first picture of Megalyn Echikunwoke on the set of “Arrow”, the first official look of the actress as Vixen is released. Looking fierce in her leather costume, she channels her inner wolf as she gazes to the camera.
Vixen is a street smart model who inherits her family’s Tantu Totem that allows her to access the powers of animals. The character has been featured on Cartoon Network’s “Justice League Unlimited”, but this marks her first live-action incarnation on TV. Echikunwoke voices the character on CW Seed’s animated web-series centering on the superheroine.
The CW’s President Mark Pedowitz recently hinted that the character could get her own TV series. “Hopefully, that character could actually spin itself out, if not, maybe join as one of the Legends [of Tomorrow],” he said at the Winter TCA press tour earlier this month.
Echikunwoke’s Vixen will appear in episode 15 of “Arrow” season 4. The show airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on The CW.
