The other day came word that Warner Bros. Pictures is set to re-team “Suicide Squad” filmmaker David Ayer and actress Margot Robbie for “Gotham City Sirens,” a new film based in the DC Cinematic Universe and focusing on various female villains.
Robbie will be reprising the role of Harley Quinn, but it has already been suggested the two key other roles will be that of Catwoman and Poison Ivy. Today, the first rumored name for one of those roles has emerged.
Bleeding Cool reports that “Transformers” actress Megan Fox may be up for the role of Poison Ivy. How did they come to this conclusion, very specific comics detailing Harley Quinn’s relationship with Poison Ivy were reportedly just ordered to her Warner Bros. mailing address.
It’s one hell of a tenuous rumor, even with Fox having previously stated in the past she’s a big comic book fan and has expressed a desire to play Ivy in the past, but the site has broken casting scoops in the past so it can’t be entirely dismissed out of hand.
