Dr. Pamela Isley, aka Poison Ivy, has had a few changes to her origin story but it always relates back to failed experimentation that resulted in Pamela becoming immune to all poisons and having the ability to interact and control plant life. These abilities, and her toxic manipulation, particularly of men, made her a daunting foe for Batman. She made her first appearance in a 1966 Batman comic and has since gone on to appear in various iterations with varying levels of success. Poison Ivy appeared as a character in Batman The Animated Series and The New Batman Adventures, voiced by Diane Pershing. In the fan favourite TV show Young Justice, Poison Ivy also makes an appearance as a member of the Injustice League, voiced by @milano_alyssa. She was also a prominent character in the @batmanarkham video games, with a large role in Batman: Arkham Knight, and was voiced by @tasiavalenza. @gothamonfox had a really interesting story arc for the character having her played initially by @clarefoley123, then by @maggiegeha after being aged by Marv. One of the only feature film appearances of the character was in 1997's Batman & Robin and was played by @ithurman. The actress who plays Poison Ivy has to be able to balance the seductive and manipulative traits with the vengeful and dangerous ones in a terrifyingly calm and calculating way. The actress I've chosen has proven she is capable of achieving that balance. My choice for Poison Ivy is Rooney Mara. Rooney has been in a number of tremendous roles and is perhaps most known for her work in Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy but has succeeded in films of every genre from horror to romance, fantasy to drama, and the list goes on. I think she has the perfect look and acting skills to really bring the character to life. What do you think? Next week, we will cast Batman's pride and joy-Damian Wayne/Robin!
