Charlize Theron transforms into Poison Ivy in a new design inspired by Robert Pattinson’s The Batman universe.
The character of Poison Ivy has had a bit of a bumpy road on the big screen. The last time she was brought to life in live-action form was in Joel Schumacher’s infamous Batman and Robin. Academy Award-nominated actress Uma Thurman portrayed the character in a performance that was reviled by critics and audiences alike.
Although Poison Ivy has yet to return to the big screen in live-action form, the character remains beloved amongst fans of the comics and animated films/series. Most recently, actress Lake Bell started voicing a version of the character in the Harley Quinn animated series on HBO Max.
It remains unknown if we will be seeing Poison Ivy come to life in live-action form anytime soon, but fans are interested in seeing a new actress portray the DC Comics icon. Charlize Theron, an acclaimed Academy Award-winning actress of numerous genre films such as Mad Max: Fury Road, Atomic Blonde, The Fate of the Furious and The Old Guard, is often a candidate in fan-casting for comic book roles, and Poison Ivy is no different.
In this design from Instagram user Jaxson Derr, Charlize Theron is imagined as Poison Ivy for Robert Pattinson’s The Batman universe.The upcoming film looks to bring Bruce Wayne to a more grounded approach from his recent DC Extended Universe portrayal, and it’s interesting to see how Charlize Theron could potentially be portrayed as Poison Ivy based on this design, given the character’s ties to the supernatural.
