Last month it was announced that Megalyn Echikunwoke would be bringing Vixen to an upcoming episode of The CW’s Arrow. Today at TCA, Mark Pedowitz the CW President, mentioned that we’ll be seeing Echikunwoke/Vixen in episode 15 or 16 of Arrow season 4 and it’s a great story to tell.
Pedowitz also mentions that there is a possibility of Vixen having her own spin-off solo series, if this particular episodes goes over well. According to SlashFilm Pedowitz says that “Vixen, which was the animated piece, is a superhero of diversity and color. Hopefully that character can spin itself out. If not, maybe join one of the Legends.”
We need a WOC Super hero on our TV sets. #RepresentationMatters. When Vixen airs on Arrow, we need to show out with tremendous tweets, spam Marc Guggenheim who is the executive producer of Arrow and Vixen and let him know that we want more of Vixen and not just on Legends of Tomorrow.
As a Vixen stan, I’m going to do everything in my power to raise awareness on Vixen coming to Arrow and the possibility of her own TV show. I want it, you want it, so let’s get it done!
Now check out this kickass picture of Megalyn with a Vixen figure.
