Remember the Arrow animated Spinoff about Vixen (No, well read about it here)? Well it looks like the character is set to leap from animated character to glorious life action!

Yes, the character, who has the powers of the animal kingdom, will be played by Megalyn Echikunwoke and is set to appear on Arrow.

Echikunwoke voiced Vixen in the CW animated series and it makes perfect sense that she play her in the flesh too, especially since she physically fits the role too. Was this CW’s plan all along?

She will appear in Season 4 Episode 15 on February 24th next year.

We have no idea where the character will go from there – Spinoff, Legends of Tomorrow Season 2? – but whatever it is, i’m sure we’ll be in for another treat.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
