“Frequency” and “Mad Men” star Peyton List will become the third actress to take on the role of Ivy Pepper/Poison Ivy in FOX’s “Gotham” during its current fourth season.
The series started off with Ivy as a young girl (Clare Foley) who, early in the third season, was exposed to chemicals and suddenly aged up into a young woman (Maggie Geha). Why she’s changed again isn’t clear, but the press release says:
“In the continuing evolution of Poison Ivy’s origin story, Ivy Pepper has been transformed once again taking another step toward becoming the Ivy we know from the comics. Dangerous. A live wire of crazy energy. She’ll set her sights on Gotham, intent on making the city her own green paradise.”
List is familiar with comic book series, having had the recurring role of Captain Cold’s sister Golden Glider on “The Flash” on The CW. Her take on the Batman villainess is expected to debut in early 2018.
