BATWOMAN Mid-Season Finale Stills Offer A Closer Look At The CWVerse's Unique Take On Poison Ivy

We recently got a first look at Nicole Kang's version of Poison Ivy, and in some stills from tonight's mid-season finale, we see more of the Batman villain in action. Does this take do the comics justice?

Batwoman's mid-season finale airs on The CW tonight, and "Pick Your Poison" promises to put The CWVerse's take on Poison Ivy front and centre. This version of the iconic Batman villain is played by Nicole Kang and, rather than being Pamela Isley, Mary has basically been infected by one of her plants. 

There have been hints that Pamela's personality will come to the fore, and a new look at the villain has now been revealed. As you can see, this is certainly a unique take on the character, but one that's perhaps not as comic accurate as some fans would like. Gotham also delivered its own spin on Poison Ivy, but her last big-screen appearance was in 1997's Batman & Robin.

"As Ryan's (Javicia Leslie) family dynamic grows more complicated, she also finds herself in the middle of a Bat Team stand-off between Luke (Camrus Johnson) and Mary (Nicole Kang)," reads the synopsis for Batwoman's final episode in 2021. "Meanwhile, Alice (Rachel Skarsten) finds a new sidekick to do her bidding. Also starring Nick Creegan and Robin Givens. Holly Dale directed the episode written by Kelly Ota and Emily Alonso."

We're intrigued to see where this is going, but it's still a shame that The CW series is reinventing Batman's greatest villains rather than bringing them back to Gotham City. Clearly, despite the existence of a Multiverse, Warner Bros. still keeps its biggest DC characters on a short leash outside of theaters.

What do you think about this latest small screen take on Poison Ivy?
