If anything, the past few years have been kind to those of us who love DC’s female characters. On the silver screen, we’ve been treated to Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, so fingers remain crossed for their next cinematic outings living up to the hype. Actually, I’m quite intrigued to see what the latter and her cohorts bring to the table in Birds of Prey, though I’m admittedly not thrilled with the costuming. I mean, would it physically hurt someone involved in that production to reference a comic book?
Still, I think it’s important that Warner Bros. make sure we see some of Gotham City’s other major femme fatales within the next few years. Whether it be in Matt Reeves’ The Batman or elsewhere, I can’t be the only one yearning for new takes on Catwoman and Poison Ivy.
In fact, it could be argued that fans are more so itching for Poison Ivy because she’s been absent from the film franchise since 1997’s Batman & Robin – and she certainly deserves redemption after that one. Helping us gaze into the crystal ball now is Datrinti, who posted their own rendition of Jessica Chastain as Pamela Isley on Instagram, which can be viewed below.

In my opinion, this beautiful piece of artwork illustrates how perfect for the role Chastain truly is. At this point in time, one would be hard pressed to think of many other actresses better suited for such a gig.
If I were to nominate one other though, I’d have to bring up Riverdale‘s Madelaine Petsch. Not only does she pretty much already have the look, but she’d previously dressed as Ivy for an ad campaign. Really, look it up for yourself and you, too, will be a believer.
The Batman, with or without Poison Ivy, arrives in theaters on June 25th, 2021. But before then, be sure to catch Jessica Chastain in X-Men: Dark Phoenix beginning on June 7th of this year.
