CW Seed’s Vixen animated show to air as an Arrowverse animated movie

August 27th, 2017 by Marc Comments

If there’s one thing we love, it’s The CW’s Arrowverse and how complex it has become with Constantine, Flash, Legends, Supergirl and more. 

But one thing that did bug us was when CW Seed aired a Vixen mini-series online before Arrow Season 4.

Why did it bug us? Well, because we’re in the UK and couldn’t watch the series due to region blocked content.

Now, however, the mini-series (both seasons) is to be released as a two-hour animated movie on Wednesday, August 30th on The CW at 8 pm.

Vixen is Mari McCabe (Megalyn Echikunwoke) whom thanks to a magic necklace, can harness the powers and strength of any animal at will.

Echikunwoke, as well as voicing the character, appeared in Arrow Season 4 as Vixen and was set to reappear in Legends Of Tomorrow, however, due to scheduling issues, she had to be replaced by Amaya Jiwe (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), as Mari’s grandmother.


While we’ve seen the show already through, ahem, other means, it’ll be fun to see it as a standalone movie…

Who all will be tuning in?

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….
