The fan-dubbed “Arrow-verse” is back in full force this fall. The Flash kicks off the fall season in the on-screen universe on October 4th and in a matter of 9 days, fans will see 5 shows back on the CW that all exist in the same dynamic multiverse. While 4 live-action shows were expected (The Flash, Supergirl, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow), everyone is pleasantly surprised to hear that the animated show Vixen will be return as well! This will be the second season of Vixen in the Arrow-verse and voice-actor Megalyn Echikunwoke will be reprising her role as the titular character.
Last time Vixen was on screen, it was very clear that it had its place in the larger T.V. universe. The Flash and The Green Arrow both made cross-over appearances that were voiced by the same actors that played them in their own shows and it fit really well. With the addition of Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl since the pilot season of Vixen, it will be exciting to see how the writers and animators at CW are able to utilize this massive universe to their advantage.
How do you think the animated corner of the shared “Arrow-verse” will enhance the experience of the live action shows? Let me know below. Episode 1 of Vixen will premiere on October 13 only on CW Seed.
