The CW has released a bunch of new official pics for the upcoming episode of Arrow, featuring the live-action debut of Vixen.
This week’s dramatic episode, titled “Taken,” will see Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) call on his friend Mari McCabe, aka Vixen (Megalyn E.K.), for help. Arriving in Star City, Vixen will join Team Arrow to lend a helping hand and fight the good fight against Damien Dahrk (Neal McDonough) in order to save William (that'd be Oliver’s young son) who’s been *gasp* kidnapped by the big bad villain.
Here’s the episode synopsis:
VIXEN JOINS TEAM ARROW – Oliver (Stephen Amell) realizes he needs help battling Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough) so he calls in an old friend – Vixen (guest star Megalyn E.K.). Using her magical ability to summon animal powers, Vixen gets a lock on Darhk’s location and the team goes to war. Meanwhile, Thea (Willa Holland) has a heart-to-heart talk with Malcolm (John Barrowman).
As some of you may already know, Megalyn E.K. has been voicing the comic-book character on The CW Seed’s animated web series Vixen last summer and is thus part of the Arrowverse canon. The show has been renewed for a second season set to air sometime this year, but this will be the first time the actress will bring the DC Comics character to life on a live-action series.
Check out he pics below, and let us know if you’re looking forward to Vixen’s arrival in Star City.
