Karen Gillan has asked James Gunn to be the new Poison Ivy. The Guardians of the Galaxy star and Nebula actress at Marvel Studios has expressed her interest in playing the villain of Batman in the new DC Universe that Warner Bros. Discovery is launching.
“I always thought Poison Ivy was a lot of fun,” Karen Gillan commented in an interview with Total Film magazine. “Honestly, if James Gunn asked me to play an alien who sits in the background of a plane and doesn’t speak… I would say yes! Because working with him has been one of the great joys of my career to date.”
All actors love their director and friend!

I have nothing official to announce. I haven’t talked to James Gunn about offering me anything like that. But, listen, I love that guy. He is one of my best friends. I totally believe in him. And, if he calls me, I will answer him.
