The DC Universe is being revamped and reworked and that means that there are some character openings, such as Poison Ivy, that we want filled.
Change is coming to the DC Universe which means we could soon see new characters such as Poison Ivy enter the mix. While the character has made it to both the small and big screen before, it’s been far too long since Poison Ivy has appeared in a DC movie and we have a wish list of actresses we would love to see bring this character to life in the new DC Universe.
At this point, James Gunn has repeatedly shot down the idea of Poison Ivy appearing in the current crop of movies being worked on, but that doesn’t mean we can’t dream. And considering how interesting this character is, especially if you have read the comics or even watched the animated Harley Quinn series, then you know how much of an impact having Poison Ivy on our screens would have on the DC Universe.
Poison Ivy is a Batman villain. She is an eco-terrorist and a scientist. Her motives are fascinating, even as her methods are definitely destructive. You can tell that she wants to save the planet, but her actions are definitely top-tier villain level. And that means that we need the right actress to step up and play this character. We need someone who can make us sympathize with the villain, while also being believable as a “bad guy/gal.”
So who are our topic picks for actresses that we want to see play Poison Ivy in the DC Universe? Here are five actresses that we think would bring this genius-level seductress to life.
