Another famous member of Batman’s Rogues Gallery will be making their way to Gotham City as The CW has chosen an actress to play Poison Ivy.
The CW announced on Monday that Bridget Regan (Jane the Virgirn) has landed the role of Poison Ivy. Her origin has been updated slightly 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.”
Regan previously dabbled in the world of superheroes when she played Dottie in Agent Carter on ABC, an original member of the Black Widow program.
Batwoman season 3 will debut on The CW on Oct. 13.
