When we last saw her on Season 2 of Gotham, the foliage focused orphan who would become Batman villainess and eco-terrorist Poison Ivy was played by Clare Foley. Well, that’s about to change for Season 3 of the Fox series as Ivy has grown up and will now be portrayed by Maggie Geha, it was revealed today
Transformed to a 19-year old, Ivy “Pamela” Pepper isn’t playing Selina Kyle’s sidekick anymore. With the Ted 2 actress now taking on the role, a newly confident and empower Pepper will be moving towards her poisonous persona and Bruce Wayne.
Of course, as fans of the Bruno Heller developed show know, Season 2 ended not just with a hoard of Prof. Hugo Strange’s strange Indian Hill experiments on the streets of Gotham but a Bruce Wayne look-a-like. So, with a grown up Poison Ivy after David Mazouz young Bruce and more, Season 3 of the Ben McKenzie led Gotham could make Season 2’s Rise of The Villains motif look like child’s play – and Batfans will like that indeed.
Heller EPs the WBTV series based on DC Comics characters with Danny Cannon and John Stephens.Featured in the upcoming thriller The Harrow, Geha is repped by INSURGE-Ent, Sanders Armstrong Caserta Management and attorney Neil Meyer.
