Vixen Makes Her Debut in New Teaser TrailerJuly 11, 2015
CW Seed and DC Entertainment released the first trailer for the upcoming Vixen animated series online today.
Mari McCabe (Vixen), voiced by Megalyn Echikunwoke, is a metahuman who possesses a mystical amulet that allows her to access the abilities of any animal in the world. Sharing a universe with The CW‘s Arrow and The Flash, Vixen features the voice talent of DC‘s live action actors. You can hear Grant Gustin, Carlos Valdes and Stephen Amell reprising their usual roles as the Flash, Cisco and Green Arrow in this trailer.
Personally, I’ve been eagerly awaiting this trailer ever since the show was announced back in January. Being familiar with Vixen from DC Comics, it’s exciting to see her finally get some attention as the lead of her own show. Vixen hasn’t made a television appearance since her brief contribution to Batman: The Brave and the Bold in 2010 (and before that, she has only been in the Justice League cartoon for a few episodes), so introducing her to the mainstream is long overdue. Since she shares a universe with Arrow and The Flash, it’ll be interesting to see if this show could lead to Mari McCabe joining the live action DC universe.
