Could the role of Poison Ivy in the DCEU be in the cards? Megan Fox? Many fans seem to think so after the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles star’s assistant refers to the possible display on social media. On her Instagram Stories, Fox assistant Madison Bigos posted a picture of the actress, along with a message that read, “poison ivy? Expect a call soon.”
The Instagram post has since been removed, perhaps after attracting the attention of many curious DC fans. Screenshots are now circulating on social media, but this stimulates speculation that Fox may play the next live-action Poison Ivy on the big screen. Given how many animated DC projects also at Warner Bros. going on, it’s just as possible for an animated incarnation of the supervillain.
This is definitely not an official decision. Yet many DC fans are on board with the idea. While the new image is floating around, there is a renewed call from fans that Fox should play the role of Poison Ivy. This is not the first time fans have been getting started, as many have previously campaigned for Fox when she said she wanted to join a major superhero film franchise.
Poison Ivy’s entrance to the DCEU is apparently inevitable, but it’s still unclear when fans can see the character arrive. It helps it Birds of prey and The suicide team Star Margot Robbie made an effort to get Poison Ivy into the DCEU to further investigate her relationship with Harley Quinn. In fact, she said she had been trying to talk the studio into it for a long time, and she promised to keep it going until it finally happened.
“Trust me, I chew on it all the time,” Robbie told Den of Geek. “They’m probably tired of hearing it, but I’m like, ‘Poison Ivy, Poison Ivy. Come on, let’s do it.’ “I’m very excited to see a Harley-Poison Ivy relationship on screen. It will be so nice. I will keep bothering them. Do not worry.”
In a separate interview with PrideSource, Robbie added: “If you read the comics, you know that Poison Ivy and Harley have an intimate relationship. In some comics, they convey it as a friendship; in other comics, you can see that it’s actually sexual I’ve tried: I like to have Poison Ivy thrown into the universe, because the Harley and Poison Ivy relationship is one of my favorite aspects of the comics, so I want to screen it. “
Traditionally, Poison Ivy is portrayed as a supervillain who uses the power of plants to her advantage. She was played by Uma Thurman in Joel Schumacher Batman and Robin, and she has not appeared in a live action movie since. Clare Foley, Maggie Geha and Peyton List shared the role in the prequel series Gotham and she’s played by Bridget Regan in the third season of Batwoman.
It’s hard to say now whether Megan Fox will ever join the DCEU, and if so, whether she’s going to play Poison Ivy. She will stay busy anyway, as she has just arrived at the cast of the sequel Issue 4. Filming for the movie begins next month.
