Margot Robbie Trying To Get Poison Ivy Into DCEU

Margot Robbie is producing and developing the Birds of Prey movie, so she has a say in what characters are used for the film.

In the comics, Harley Quinn is pretty tight with Poison Ivy, who also happens to be a Birds of Prey member.

In an interview with pridesource.com, Margot Robbie offers up she is very away of the character and stops short of stating she is getting the character into the DCEU and Birds of Prey movie.

Yeah. If you read the comics you know that Poison Ivy and Harley have an intimate relationship. In some comics they convey it as a friendship; in other comics you can see that they’re actually sexually involved as a couple. I’ve been trying to – I would love to have Poison Ivy thrown into the universe, because the Harley and Poison Ivy relationship is one of my favorite aspects of the comics, so I’m looking to explore that on screen.

Regarding who could potentially play Poison Ivy, Robbie says she doesn't have anyone specific in mind just yet.

You know what? I’ve thought about it a lot and there’s no one person who springs to mind. I’m pretty open-minded.

Harley Quinn Poison Ivy

Birds of Prey: And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn has a February 7, 2020 release directed by Cathy Yan starring Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Rosie Perez as Gotham City detective Renee Montoya, Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain, and Ewan McGregor is playing the villain of the film with Black Mask.

The plot is rumored to include that Batman has been missing for years, which might explain the rise of the Black Mask in the DCEU, and that the Black Mask kidnaps the young Cassandra Cain to mold her into an assassin, with Harley Quinn, Black Canary and Huntress coming together to rescue Cassandra and put a stop to Black Mask.
