Isla Fisher is 41 (as is Christina Hendricks). Margot Robbie is 26. Megan Fox is 30. Robbie teaming with Fox makes more sense to me for that coupling than Fisher. Having said that I would gone with someone like Lily James (27), Gemma Arterton (31) or Emilia Clark (30) since I believe all of them to be superior actors than Fox.
Clarke's physique is not at all befitting of Poison Ivy. Emilia Clarke is a petite, 5'1ft girl. Ivy is 5'8ft.
Height and overall physique is nothing resembling Ivy.
I don't see this as a necessarily bad idea. She's honestly not a bad actress (not I didn't say she's all that great), and
Is she the BEST for the job? Probably not, but they could do worse.
I don't know Megan Fox beyond the Transformers and Turtle movies so please pardon my ignorance, but what strengths are you referring to? Despite what I'm sure plenty of writers believe, there's more to Poison Ivy than just looking pretty (and half naked) and getting men to do what she wants.
Certainly there's more to Ivy than that, though those are her two strongest character traits which Fox is very strong at. However, she's also good at portraying strong emotion (if not so awesome at delivering weighty dialogue).
@tinyford: Look one of the reasons i mentioned her is because i dont like the idea that a 30 yr old that looks like she is in her 20's portray a Villain who is clearly the same age or 5 years younger than Batman. Its like michelle pfeiffer and Keaton in batman Returns they act better because they are close in age and they can understand each other putting Megan Fox with Affleck will give u the same result as it gave when she had a dialog with josh brolin in Jonah Hex another award for worst actress. Zooey even though you are right my reason for picking her was since Affleck is close to her age they can act better. Megan Fox is just a tease and she knows it but she needs the work. Also the best example of Poison Ivy isnt in the comics but in Batman The animated series if you are looking for the one then look for everything not just cleavage.
Isn't most of what Poison Ivy does just saying things in a seductive tone and moaning obscenely loudly whenever her plants are injured, at least in her most recent adaptions?
You don't need to be a grade A actress to do that, so Fox is fine if it's a small role. If it's for Gotham City Sirens where she's one of the main characters though, not a good idea.
@toranblak: haha absolutely true Megan Fox can't act to save her life, and she's also not hot might I just add. I simply meant to say that Zooey (even if she is an amazing actress) has set herself up for future roles as the awkward girl or the mean girl or whatever.
I love Zooey, but having her in a superhero movie will possibly cause people to say "nah it won't be good enough" and watch something else.
Also this is poison ivy, I think zooey would be able to play a superhero/supervillian but just not this sexy one because previous roles she took disqualified her for them.
Nonetheless she is an amazing actress and the age gap you mentioned makes complete sense so kudos
She's not even got enough! 😠
Enough what? what does she not get enough of? answer me you illiterate lil twerp!!!!
(Me being gay may hinder my taste but still...)
I'll say, who wears bow ties and fur coats? not someone with a fully functioning brain, dat am four sure
@the_stegman: I think one of the main issues here should be the chemistry that Megan Fox would have with the other members of the cast; ergo Margot Robbie. I don't really see Megan Fox having good on screen chemistry with Harley Quinn. I predict it as being forced and awkward throughout the whole film. Would rather see someone play Poison Ivy and have honest interactions with Margot in order to make it all seem natural and believable.
