Are we about to see a morally ambiguous, queer nature goddess dressed in green spandex on the big screen?
According to the geek culture site Giant Freakin Robot, that's exactly what's coming soon from DC Entertainment, as sapphic supervillain Poison Ivy could be joining the DCEU. Rumor has it that DC, the studio behind movies like The Suicide Squad and Birds of Prey, as well as stand-alone films like Joker, is putting into production a Poison Ivy solo movie.
Obviously, the project is in the early development stages, but fan and industry support for Megan Fox to play the role has been gaining steam lately. That train started when Fox was profiled in InStyle Magazine and said that she'd love to play a character in a Marvel or DC movie.
Last month, Fox's assistant posted an image of Fox with the caption, "Poison Ivy? Expecting a call very soon" on her Instagram stories. Could that post be tied to this new rumor?
While the rumor is that this will be a Poison Ivy solo movie, many fans are begging that she gets to be onscreen with another queer villain, Harley Quinn.
Ever since the two characters shared a bed in an episode of Batman: The Animated Series, fans have been shipping the two rogues, and recently, their relationship has been made canon, both in the comics, and in Harley's self-titled animated show on HBO Max.
Fans haven't been the only ones clamoring for Poison Ivy to appear on the big screen again. DC's own Harley Quinn, Margot Robbie, who has played the iconic character in three movies, has also said that she wants Poison Ivy to be in one of her next projects, and would love for the two to be a couple. So would we!!!
