CW President Says The Hope Is For VIXEN To Receive Live-Action Spin-Off

Already confirmed for a second season of The CW Seed Vixen animated series, actress Megalyn Echikunwoke may soon find herself with her own show after a guest spot on Arrow. There's also a Plan B for Vixen if a live-action solo show doesn't work out.

What a difference a season makes.  During the Summer TCA press tour, CW President Mark Pedowitz stated that there wouldn't be any more DC Comics adaptations for quite a while after DC's Legends of Tomorrow.  However, during the Winter TCA press tour, Pedowitz appears to have changed his stance, acknowledging that the hope is for Megalyn Echikunwoke's Vixen to eventually recieve her own live-action show.  Peodwitz stated, "Hopefully, that character could actually spin itself out, if not, maybe join as one of the Legends [of Tomorrow]."

It will be interesting to see what metrics The CW uses to determine whether or not to pull the trigger on a live-action Vixen TV series.  Surely they'll look at the budget required to showcase her powers when Echikunwoke appears in an upcoming episode of Arrow.  Will social media trends factor? Ratings for Arrow when Vixen makes her debut?  The animated series already appears to be a success for the network as a second season has already been announced for later in 2016.
