Batwoman will gain one of the most infamous residents of Gotham City, as Poison Ivy is coming to The CW series.
The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Bridget Regan will play Pamela Isley/Poison Ivy in the upcoming third season of the superhero series. Regan previously starred on Jane The Virgin for five seasons as Rose, while her other credits include White Collar, The Last Ship, and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..
Pamela Isley is a former botany student that becomes “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.”
Season three of Batwoman sees Javicia Leslie’s Ryan Wilder continuing in the title role as the DC heroine, while the cast also includes Rachel Skarsten, Meagan Tandy, Nicole Kang, Camrus Johnson, Robin Givens, Victoria Cartagena, and Nick Creegan.
Batwoman Season 3 will premiere on October 13th on The CW.
