MOVIE NEWS – There are more and more DC Extended Universe movies to be made by Warner Bros., bad reviews are damned. Not long ago, the studio confirmed their plans for the alleged Harley Quinn spinoff movie, affirming that David Ayer would direct the film which would be titled Gotham City Sirens. It also seems, that looks like Poison Ivy will appear in the movie, and if fresh rumors turn out to be true, Megan Fox could be playing her. Now also have a picture of what that could look like.
Artist BossLogic not long ago posted a photo to his Twitter account presenting his personal imagination for what Megan Fox could look like as the famed DC Comics villain. This picture of Poison Ivy is actually one that he did some time ago but decided to touch it up given the recent rumors. The reaction from fans on the Internet online has been very negative in regards to Megan Fox possibly playing the part, but if this art proves anything it is that she could definitely at least pull off the look for the character, which is a pretty big part of it. Here is what BossLogica had to say about it.
“Lighting Fix – I happen to love @meganfox, so I modified my IVY piece to have fun with the rumors 🙂 #GothamCitySirens.”
Back in 2014, Megan Fox talked about playing either Poison Ivy or Red Sonja, and she is a known comic book fan. Besides that evidence, Bleeding Cool reported that she has been ordering some DC Comics recently that seem very timely. According to them, she ordered Harley Quinn #14, #17 and #38. The first two issues featured early appearances of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy together, and #38 has to do with her relationship with the Gotham City police. Because of the recent announcement of Gotham City Sirens, the books do seem oddly timely, so the rumors have been swirling in the last few days.
The last time we saw Poison Ivy in a movie was nearly two decades ago when Uma Thurman played her in the atrocious Batman & Robin. To state that fans abhorred that movie would be a dramatic understatement, so seeing a new version of Poison Ivy on screen is something that has been a long time to come, and Gotham City Sirens seems like a right way to do it. The project came into being because Margot Robbie pretty much wanted it to be made. After playing Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad, she reportedly fell in love with other female DC Comics characters such as Poison Ivy, so she hired a screenwriter on her own to work on the script. As to Warner Bros. they chose to back up the project, and now the movie is reportedly on the fast track. To do that, they are going to need to cast a new Catwoman and Poison Ivy.
While fans, may not like that much the idea of Megan Fox as Poison Ivy and her comic book movie track record makes that understandable. She starred in both of the new Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies as well as the failed Jonah Hex. Still, this art may be enough to convince some fans it could work.
