BATWOMAN: Bridget Regan's Poison Ivy Costume Revealed, And It's (Somewhat) ARKHAM ASYLUM Inspired

Ahead of Batwoman's return to The CW, we have a new look at Bridget Regan "suited up" as Poison Ivy, and it definitely appears as if the series is taking inspiration from Rocksteady's Arkham video games...

Batwoman returns to The CW tonight with a new episode, and we're finally going to spend some time with the original Poison Ivy, Pam Isley, through a series of flashbacks. We're set to learn more about Renee Montoya's past and her history with the iconic Batman villain played by Bridget Regan.

While this certainly isn't an entirely comic accurate take on Poison Ivy, it definitely looks like some inspiration has been taken from the version of the villain in the Arkham series of video games. 

Talking to TV Line, Regan talked about her input in finding the right look for the character. "I wanted long hair, long nails, long lashes just like she’s growing - she is a plant," the actress says, revealing that she turned to everything from Uma Thurman's Batman and Robin performance to HBO Max's animated Harley Quinn TV series for inspiration with her performance.

"I based everything on [the] idea that plants are better than people, and that was it," Regan continued. "I was really drawn to her mission. I was drawn to this metamorphosis that she’s gone through - her extreme commitment to that mission, how radicalized she is, how passionate she is." She concludes by saying Ivy has a "real internal conflict with her love life."

The CW often comes under fire for the way it reimagines comic book costumes for the screen, but this isn't a terrible effort by any means. Check out a first look at Batwoman's Poison Ivy below:
