As reported earlier this summer, young Poison Ivy will become an older, sexier version of herself this season on Gotham. That episode airs tomorrow, September 26th, and FOX has released a video preview which you can watch above.
So why make the change? Here’s what executive producer Ken Woodruff told The Hollywood Reporter:
“We made the change for two reasons: The character Ivy in the comics, one of her greatest powers is the power of seduction. Everyone was much more comfortable with that with an older actress as opposed to a teenager. We want to explore that classic, canonical power of Ivy. And we didn’t just make her older with that attack. When she’s changed and transformed, there’s a real character change as well. She’ll still have some of the same traits, but she’ll be much darker, more manipulative than the Ivy we’ve seen so far. There’s a more evil quality to her as well. It’s more than just physical.”
