Megalyn Echikunwoke voiced Vixen in the CW Seed animated series and just last month it was announced that Megalyn would be donning the dark yellow and black in an upcoming episode of Arrow, episode 15 to be exact.
Stephen Amell, aka Oliver Queen, took to his Twitter last night and posted a behind the scenes picture of Megalyn as Vixen. Take a gander below.

As you can see, Megalyn’s hair looks different than her Vixen animated counterpart. Vixen has had short hair in the comics and Justice League cartoon for as long as I can remember. Before people get all up in arms and have a conniption, I have this to say: MAYBE Vixen decided to let her hair grow or wear a weave. WHO CARES!!!!??? Vixen is on the TV!
Ok, back to the image. Now while we can’t fully see Megalyn’s costume, we CAN see that there is a dark yellow/black combo, perhaps a jacket (?) or maybe a catsuit (?) she is wearing. Also, the dark makeup. Sidebar: Megalyn, that lipstick looks FIERCE on you bae! (I totally just did a cat claw motion and rawr’d at the same time.)
Remember, 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. It is quite possible that Vixen MIGHT get her own show. Read more about that here.
Vixen will appear in episode 15 of Arrow, titled “Taken”. Last night’s episode was #10, so we should be seeing Megalyn in February; just in time for #BlackComicsMonth.
Make note of the hashtag and let’s get it trending!
