Bridget Regan has been cast as Pamela Isley, a.k.a. Poison Ivy, in The CW’s Batwoman’s upcoming junior season, alongside star Javicia Leslie. Regan will return as a former Gotham University botany student who was a passionate, bright scientist with a desire to change the world for the better.
However, Pamela’s intentions changed when she was subjected to an experiment by a colleague, who injected her with different plant poisons, transforming her into the iconic Batman villain Poison Ivy. With a powerful force flowing through her veins, Pamela utilized her abilities to accomplish what she believed was right… even if Batman and those closest to her disagreed with her risky tactics.

According to Deadline, the Agent Carter star Bridget will be featuring alongside previously announced cast members Nick Creegan and Victoria Cartagena, who will play Marquis Jet and Renee Montoya, respectively.
