Warner Bros. releases animated trailer for Vixen
As part of Warner Bros. massive television panel at San Diego Comic Con, the CW premiered the trailer for Vixen, a digital only cartoon coming this fall featuring DC Comics first African-American female superhero to headline her own title.
Megalyn Echikunwoke will voice the titular Vixen, owner of the “Tantu Totem,” a mystic artifact that gives the wearer the ability to copy the powers and abilities of any nearby animals.
Vixen will be released online via CW Seed, and will feature appearances by Flash star Gustin Grant and Arrow‘s Steven Arnell reprising their television roles. Echikunwoke will return the favor, guest starring as Vixen on CW’s live action superhero shows next season.
Vixen will premiere Aug. 25 online on CW Seed.
Editor’s Note: Story was corrected to reflect that Vixen was the first female African-American superhero to get her own comic at DC. Bumblebee was the actual first female African-American superhero at the company.
