“Ryan Wilder is graduating to the big league,” DC Comics wrote on their website. “While The CW’s new Batwoman held her own last season against the likes of Black Mask and Safiyah, she’s about to go toe-to-toe with one of the Dark Knight’s biggest, most lethally effective adversaries—Poison Ivy. It was revealed today that actress Bridget Regan has been cast in the role of Pamela Isley on Batwoman in a take on the character that promises to bring her back to her villainous…er, roots.”
“This is going to be fun,” Regan wrote on social media.
DC Comics continued, “It’s unclear at this time whether Ivy will be next season’s “big bad,” a supporting villain like season two’s Hush, or something in between. However, bringing a popular, well-known Gotham rogue to The CW series will both increase the show’s profile among more casual Batman fans and offer Javia Leslie’s Ryan her most formidable challenge yet. (Fortunately, she’ll have a bit more help than last season now that Luke Fox has officially graduated to Batwing.)”
They added, “While her Batwoman role will mark her first stint as a DC character, it won’t be her first foray into the realm of superheroes and villains—she played Dottie Underwood in two memorable seasons of ABC’s Agent Carter.”
‘Batwoman’ is not known for following a character’s “roots,” considering Kate Kane has vanished from the titular character and has been replaced with an original character. Similarly, Hush was given a completely new origin and personality in season two where he was played by Gabriel Mann.
