According to TV Insider, actress Megalyn Echikunwoke has been casted as Mari McCabe, A.K.A. Vixen, in Arrow’s Fourth Season. Echikunwoke will first appear in episode 15.
Originally from Africa, Mari McCabe’s (played by Megalyn Echikunwoke) parents were killed by local greed, corruption, and wanton violence. But the orphaned Mari refuses to succumb to the terrors surrounding her. Inheriting her family’s Tantu Totem, Mari can access the powers of animals — anything from the super-strength of a gorilla to the speed of a cheetah. As Vixen, she fights valiantly to protect the world from the threats like those that claimed her family.
“We’re not only thrilled to be further expanding our DC television universe by bringing in the live-action incarnation of the CW Seed hit, Vixen, we’re immensely excited that Megalyn will be revisiting her role as Mari McCabe,” said executive producer Marc Guggenheim.
Megalyn Echikunwoke is know for her role in ‘The Following’ and ‘Damien’ and her voice in ‘Vixen’.
