One of the most iconic Batman villains is returning to the small screen, The CW has officially announced that Bridget Regan will be joining the cast of the third season as Pamela Isley. For those unfamiliar with that name, Isley is also known as Poison Ivy, the well-known adversary in Batman’s rogues gallery who is immune to toxins and has the ability to control plants. Isley is described as:
The former botany student of Gotham University, who was a passionate, brilliant scientist with a mind for changing the world for the better. Pamela’s 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 has recently appeared in the limited drama series Paradise Lost, along with prior appearances in White Collar, Jane the Virgin, and Marvel’s Agent Carter. This will be the character’s third appearance in live-action with Uma Thurman portraying her in Batman and Robin, while Clare Foley, Maggie Geha, and Peyton List played three versions of Isley in Fox’s Gotham.
