Vixen

Arrow's Marc Guggenheim will bring an animated series based on DC Comics' Vixen to The CW's online component, CW Seed, the network announced today at the Television Critics Association (via KSite TV).

The series expected to debut in the fall and will share a universe with The Flash and Arrow.

The story centers on Mari Jiwe McCabe, an African-born orphan whose mystical Tantu totem that gives her the abilities of one animal at a time. In some iterations, she's been tied to The Red, the life web that connects all animals and also powers Buddy "Animal Man" Baker.

Following the wild success of The Flash this year, there had been speculation that The CW would launch another DC Comics series; producers had admitted they had some ideas they were considering, but it had been some time since it was openly discussed. In the meantime, Greg Berlanti's Supergirl has taken root at CBS and Andrew Kreisberg's recently-updated bio still says he's working on Booster Gold with Syfy and Warner Horizon.

This is the second high-profile CW Seed launch in as many years; earlier this year, iZombie producer Rob Thomas debuted Play It Again, Dick, a Veronica Mars spinoff, on the platform.

This f*cking DC animation style again. *sigh*

Hope it'll be good - Mari is one of my favourite League members.

So we could see live-action Vixen on Arrow/Flash ?

I'm all down for this; it'll be great to have a female led DC show back on the air after Young Justice's cancellation, plus Vixen has always been a favourite female hero of mine. I'm annoyed they decided to use THAT animation style though that they've been using for all of their films as of late; I guess they're doing a BTAS thing where the style crossed over into multiples shows/movies of the DC Universe.

I couldn't agree with that more.
It's great that she's the lead. Kinda disappointing it's in animation form but I'll take it. Soon we'll be over saturated with superhero shows on TV so I'll take an animated form too.
I also second KAC's wondering if she'll make a live action appearance too.
We'll see.
Still bummed about her suit too, since it looks like Wasp but eh!
Here's hoping it's good.

Seems alright. Kinda feel robbed of a live action Vixen series though.

Is CW Seed a different station? I'm confused...and and too lazy too read.

This is kind of exciting, I like the idea, but I'm not too ecstatic by her portrayal. At least flash and arrow aren't no neck football players. That's a plus.

Also the animators being too lazy to animate the compound bow into every frame gives us back the retro bow. Which is better, imo.

Apparently if the cartoon does well they'll turn it into a live-action show

Interesting. Vixen was always amazing. Hopefully we might get a John Stewart Cameo.

Looking forward to it! Though it is a little odd hearing the live action actors playing their animated counterparts, I must say :oldyella:
