Warner Bros. is developing Gotham City Sirens, a Suicide Squad spin-off movie that is being written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet, will be directed by David Ayer, and will feature Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn teaming up with Catwoman and Poison Ivy to take on Black Mask. Ever since it was first reported to be in the works back in May, fans have been speculating which actresses should play the acrobatic burglar and the redheaded seductress.
When it comes to Poison Ivy (whose real name is Pamela Lilian Isley), there was a rumor that Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles star, Megan Fox, was up for the part, but there's been nothing new to report on that front in quite some time. Mr. Robot actress Steph Corneliussen expressed interest, but she's probably not a big enough name to be considered and isn't topping anyone's wish-list
As for fans, many of them have suggested Emma Stone (The Amazing Spider-Man) and Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld). Another name that is brought up just often is Jessica Chastain (The Help, Zero Dark Thirty). And while promoting her new film The Zookeeper's Wife, the two-time Academy Award nominee was asked if she would have interest in playing the DCEU's Poison Ivy.
"I'm interested in all things where the characters are strong and dynamic, and not stereotypes or objects. I like female characters that are subjects, not objects," the 40-year-old actress told Cinema Blend. "And so, if Poison Ivy happens to be that, sure. Throw my hat in the ring."

The Zookeeper's Wife - The real-life story of one working wife and mother who became a hero to hundreds during World War II. In 1939 Poland, Antonina Zabinska (portrayed by Jessica Chastain) and her husband, Dr. Jan Zabinski (Johan Heldenbergh of “The Broken Circle Breakdown”), have the Warsaw Zoo flourishing under his stewardship and her care. When their country is invaded by the Germans, Jan and Antonina are stunned – and forced to report to the Reich’s newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck (Daniel Brühl of “Captain America: Civil War”). To fight back on their own terms, Antonina and Jan covertly begin working with the Resistance – and put into action plans to save lives out of what has become the Warsaw Ghetto, with Antonina putting herself and even her children at great risk.
The Zookeeper's Wife, which was directed by Niki Caro and written by Angela Workman, arrives in theaters on March 31.
