Poison Ivy Will Make Her Way to The CW's Batwoman

Ryan Wilder is graduating to the big league.

While The CW’s new Batwoman held her own last season against the likes of Black Mask and Safiyah, she’s about to go toe-to-toe with one of the Dark Knight’s biggest, most lethally effective adversaries—Poison Ivy. It was revealed today that actress Bridget Regan has been cast in the role of Pamela Isley on Batwoman in a take on the character that promises to bring her back to her villainous…er, roots.

Here’s what the official description has to say about Regan’s Ivy: A former botany student of Gotham University, Pamela Isley was a passionate, brilliant scientist with a mind for changing the world for the better. But her plans shifted when she was experimented on by a colleague, injected with various plant toxins which turned her into the infamous Batman villain: Poison Ivy. With a formidable power coursing through her veins, Pamela used her powers to do what she thought was right…even if Batman and those closest to her disagreed with her dangerous methods. Now effectively wiped off the board for years, the bat team must prepare themselves for Poison Ivy to return with a vengeance.

I have no idea what that is, but like @Beedlejuice said, she been in a lot, so its not surprising I don’t know it. I know her mostly from Paradise Lost and Agent Carter.

Agree @mccaggers91 very exciting! :00_batwoman: Sn2 was pretty good, so I’m thinking this will be a great addition. #TeamGreen :green_heart: #MorePlantLady!! :rose:

Loved her in Agent Carter. :+1:

She’s def got a strong working actor’s resume. On any given day spent channel surfing she can def be seen in something here and there. :+1:

Definitely! Did you check out Sn2 at all? :eyes:
I know it’s different, but Ryan worked really well, imo. Going to be interesting to see her w/ Ivy. :green_heart:

What’s Sn2? Not familiar with that one.

Fully in agreement here Queen @Razzzcat. And I’m glad that Regan, 39, was cast in the role as it’s encouraging to see that certain casting director’s offices in Tinseltown are finally getting away from the flawed philosophy that women actors in their late thirties and above can no longer be bankable with audiences. I def think Regan’s gonna be a fantastic Dr. Isley.

@DC89 Agree! Her age is absolutely one of my fave things about the casting. Ivy should be mid to late 30’s imo. :0_poison_ivy_tas: :green_heart:

Oh! lol, Sorry I was referring to Batwoman Sn2.
