Famed fan artist BossLogic has imagined what Ana de Armas might seem like as Poison Ivy within the DCEU. After tackling smaller roles within the movies Battle Canine and Blade Runner 2049, Armas obtained her huge break final yr taking part in the heroine Marta in Rian Johnson’s hit whodunnit Knives Out. She’s ready to turn out to be a fair greater title within the foreseeable future because of her upcoming position as CIA agent Paloma reverse Daniel Craig’s James Bond in No Time to Die this fall. If that wasn’t sufficient, Armas can be taking part in Norma Jeane aka. Marilyn Monroe in Andrew Dominik’s drama Blonde, which is predicted to stream on Netflix round the identical time the subsequent awards seasons will get underway.
Within the wake of her enhance in recognition, followers have (naturally) began nominating her to play a comic book e-book character of both the Marvel or DC selection. One of many extra fashionable fan-castings is Armas as Poison Ivy reverse Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn in a future DCEU spinoff like Gotham Metropolis Sirens, or actually any DCEU film that includes Robbie again in her Suicide Squad and Birds of Prey position. Even BossLogic is getting behind the concept together with his newest paintings.
Taking to his Instagram account, BossLogic posted fan artwork of Armas as Poison Ivy and, only for enjoyable, comparable paintings of Armas as Zatanna from DC’s Justice League Darkish. You’ll be able to verify each of these photographs out beneath, together with among the posts from followers calling for Armas to play Ivy within the DCEU.
Curiously, Birds of Prey subtly units the stage for Poison Ivy to affix the DCEU throughout the animated sequence the place Harley is recounting the occasions her coronary heart was damaged earlier than she met the Joker (together with, by a lady who’s equivalent to Ivy from Batman: The Animated Collection). The pair famously have a romance within the DC Comics universe and plenty of followers are hoping the DCEU will discover their relationship in a future film. However with Birds of Prey disappointing on the field workplace and Harley solely confirmed to seem in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad subsequent, it isn’t clear when and the place that would occur. Robbie, again when she was selling Birds of Prey, stated she’s nonetheless all for making Gotham Metropolis Sirens, so that may be the plain place to introduce Ivy to the DCEU. The film might even convey again Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman following her look in Matt Reeves’ The Batman in 2021.
As for Zatanna, the character will nearly definitely make her DCEU debut in Justice League Darkish. The movie has struggled to get off the bottom for years, with Guillermo del Toro and Doug Liman among the many administrators who’ve come and gone on the undertaking in that point. J.J. Abrams and Dangerous Robotic are at present creating Justice League Darkish movies and TV reveals as a part of their new cope with WarnerMedia, however a film is probably going nonetheless a methods off from occurring. All the identical, it seems like Armas will ultimately discover her method into a significant comedian e-book adaptation, whether or not she’s forged as Poison Ivy, Zatanna, or a very completely different character (and never essentially from DC, both).
