Peyton List joins Gotham as the new Poison Ivy!
Things might get a bit itchier and foliage-controlling on Gotham as the Foxdrama is about to have a new Poison Ivy.
Coming off the latest toxic transformation for the veteran Batman villain on the September 28 “The Fear Reaper” episode, Frequency and Mad Men alum Peyton List will be joining Gotham as the latest Ivy next year. With the age-shifting character having been played by Clare Foley earlier and Maggie Gehastarting in Season 3 of the Bruno Heller Batman backstory series, it is unclear whether List’s Ivy Pepper/Poison Ivy will join the show as a recurring guest star later this season or in a Season 5.
“In the continuing evolution of Poison Ivy’s origin story, Ivy Pepper has been transformed once again taking another step toward becoming the Ivy we know from the comics,”Gotham producers said in a statement today. “Dangerous. A live wire of crazy energy. She’ll set her sights on Gotham, intent on making the city her own green paradise,” they added.
