Earlier this week we learned that Suicide Squad director David Ayer will be teaming back up with Margot Robbie and Warner Bros. to develop Gotham City Sirens, which will focus on Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, and Catwoman. There’s a lot to be excited about for this film because it brings these three characters together on the big screen for the first time.
Bleeding Cool is reporting that the role of Poison Ivy might be filled by Megan Fox. They say she is definitely pursuing the role because she’s a big comic book fan, and she is buying up specific pre-52 DC comic books that involve Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy. These comics have reportedly been sent to her Warner Bros. Studio office address. They provided a couple of the issues that she ordered below.
Those comics include Harley Quinn #14, #17, and #38. What makes these choices interesting is the fact that they feature the first appearances of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy together and the early formation of their relationship. This is something that the film would have to put some focus on.
Now, just because she’s buying up comics doesn’t mean that she will be playing Poison Ivy, but if this is true, it’s pretty clear that she is doing some research. It’s really not hard to imagine her as Poison Ivy, but I personally think she’s a terrible actress and there are better actresses who could take on the role. But what do you think? Do you think that Fox has what it takes to bring Poison Ivy to life on the big screen?
