Vixen is an animated web series that premiered on CW Seed on August 25, 2015. It is set in the same universe as both Arrow and The Flash.[1] The first season spans six parts, as a sort of origin story for Vixen.

Having always had the potential to make a live-action appearance on Arrow or The Flash,[2] it was announced in December 2015 that Megalyn Echikunwoke, the voice actress of Mari McCabe, would reprise her role in the fifteenth episode of the fourth season of Arrow, "Taken", marking the character's first live-action appearance in the universe.[3]

The first season takes place circa Arrow's "The Offer".[4][5] On January 10, 2016, the series was renewed for a second season.[6]

The first and second seasons were combined to form a full-length feature film, titled Vixen: The Movie and was released on May 23, 2017.[7][8] This makes it the first film set in the Arrowverse before CBS' The Flash was retconned into the Arrowverse.

Timeline placement[]

Marc Guggenheim has definitively stated that the first season takes place circa Arrow's "The Offer".[4][5] Based on contextual clues, the second season takes place somewhere between Arrow's "Legends of Yesterday" and The Flash's "Running to Stand Still" as Ray Palmer is no longer presumed dead (found alive in Arrow's "Lost Souls"), Barry does not comment on Oliver's sleeveless costume (he is surprised to notice it during the Heroes Join Forces crossover), Jefferson Jackson is now Firestorm (The Flash's "The Fury of Firestorm"), Mark Mardon is not in Iron Heights (he was arrested in The Flash's "Running to Stand Still"), and the Legends have not yet been recruited by Rip Hunter. Furthermore, Vixen: The Movie indicates that a year has passed since the events of the first season and Oliver Queen is currently running for mayor of Star City, as seen in Arrow season four.

The events of both seasons are referenced later, confirming their timeline placement. In Arrow's "Taken", Oliver mentions an "animated encounter" with Mari, while Laurel Lance recognizes her (the two having first met in Vixen's second season). In DC's Legends of Tomorrow's "Land of the Lost", Ray Palmer makes reference to Mari as the granddaughter of Amaya Jiwe, and that he met her previously (again, in Vixen's second season).

Due to the actions of the Legends in "Guest Starring John Noble", Zambesi Village was never destroyed. As a result, Mari and Kuasa were raised by their biological parents, thus erasing the events of this series from the timeline.
