Spinning off of The CW’s Arrow and The Flash, Vixen will be an animated mini-series exclusively released on The CW’s online platform, CW Seed. Megalyn Echikunwoke (The Following) will voice the title role of Mari McCabe/Vixen, while Arrow and The Flash‘s Stephen Amell, Grant Gustin, Emily Bett Rickards, Carlos Valdes, and Katie Cassidy will reprise their roles from their respective series.

For those unfamiliar with the DC Comics superhero, Vixen made her first official appearance in 1981’s Action Comics #521 and was created by writer Gerry Conway and artist Bob Oksner. With a magical totem she wears as a necklace, Vixen is able to access the powers of any animal she desires. The character has been rarely utilized since DC Comics New 52 reboot in 2011, but some may know her from the fan-favorite Bruce Timm animated Justice League series, where Megalyn Echikunwoke also voiced the role.

Vixen is set to premiere online on CW Seed this August 25. Check out the first official trailer released at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con International below and feel free to let us know what you think in the comments.
