The CW’s Batwoman has found its Poison Ivy, with Bridget Regan landing the role. Regan will play a recurring villainous role of Ivy for season three of Batwoman.
Here is an official description of the Batwoman‘s version of Poison Ivy.
A former botany student at Gotham University, Pamela 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, Batwoman and the Bat Team must prepare themselves for Poison Ivy to return with a vengeance.
Before Bridget Regan, There Were Poison Ivy References
Fans of the show should not be surprised by the announcement of Bridget Regan as the plant-based villain. There have been a handful of Poison Ivy references sprinkled throughout season two.
In one episode, season two villain Safiyah revealed that Poison Ivy’s plants helped with her own plans.
The season two finale showed various Batman rogue gallery trophies floating down a river. Viewers saw the Mad Hatter’s hat, the Penguin’s umbrella, and a jar of mud with possibly Clayface in it. However, a jar of Poison Ivy’s vines broke on the river bank, causing them to grow and sprout quickly.
Regan has an impressive film and television resume. She held a recurring role in Marvel’s Agent Carter and also appeared in the first John Wick movie.
Batwoman season 3 will premiere on October 13th at 9 p.m. ET/PT on the CW.
