The character of Poison Ivy has been seen on TV before — after all, Gotham had about three of them — and now, Batwoman is adding another to the ranks, casting one of our favorite actresses Bridget Regan (Agent Carter, Legend of the Seeker) as Poison Ivy for Season 3!
Variety broke the news today that Bridget Regan will be a recurring guest star in Season 3. Here’s how they describe the character:
Poison Ivy, a.k.a Pamela Isley, is as former botany student of Gotham University described as 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, Batwoman and the Bat Team must prepare themselves for Poison Ivy to return with a vengeance.
It seems like just yesterday we were fan-casting Bridget Regan as Smallville’s Wonder Woman for KryptonSite April Fool’s.
Batwoman Season 3 premieres October 13 on The CW.
