Megalyn Echikunwoke, the actress behind Vixen in the CW Seed animated Series as we know had been cast for a guest role on CW’s Arrow. Now there is more to it.
During last years Summer TCA press tour CW President MArk Pedowitz stated that there wouldn’t be any more comic adaption shows on the CW for awhile after DC’s Legends of tomorrow aired.
However, during the Winter TCA press tour Pedowitz has changed his stance confirming a Season 2 of Vixen on CW Seed as well as plans to give Vixen a Live- Action show.
There is also a Plan B in place if the Solo show doesn’t work out. “Hopefully that character could actually spin itself out. If not maybe join as one of the legends of tomorrow”
How CW will decide whether or not to pull the trigger on this is unknown. Social media trends, Ratings for when Vixen appears on Arrow, Budget, Etc. so make sure you do everything you can to make it happen.
Personally i think that if they had room for another show and really wanted her that bad but didn’t have a good enough script for a solo run, why put another character on a show already fat with characters as is.
When TNT decided they were going in a different direction and pull the plug on Titans many said CW would never do their own Titans because Pedowitz made that statement in the Summer TCA press tour.
Well why not now? Perhaps Pedowitz Should get the usual CW team to put together a Titans show within the CW Universe, Vixen, Starfire, Raven, Proxy, Arsenal. Who know maybe you could even fill that spot with a Bird of Prey series.
I get that they want other shows and I’ve seen their new shows trailers this time around they all interest me but some shows will get the boot and DC is not on the ticket we all know that.
Although TNT has officially abandoned the planned Titans live action series, when TV Line caught up with DC Entertainment CCO Geoff Johns at the Television Critics Assocation press tour last month, he revealed: “We [at DC] have known about [Turner nixing Titans] for months and months and months. That’s not new news to us. We have plans for Titans,” Johns asserted. “It’s a huge piece of DC and we have plans.”
Johns didn’t disclose those plans, but it’s worth noting that DC has successfully revived projects in the past — Supergirl was originally pitched to the CW to join The Flash and Arrow but was passed on, only to later find success at CBS.
