We’re getting the first look at Nicole Kang (Dr. Mary Hamilton) as the new Poison Ivy in the CW’s Batwoman. See the image above.
After being infected by a missing “Bat Trophy” – a mysterious thorn – Mary’s journey culminates next week in the Nov. 24 midseason finale “Double Trouble” episode as she fully transforms into the supervillain.
In the Nov. 17 episode we learned that Mary had been infected by one of Pam Isley’s vines, and now “the selfless and caring Mary Hamilton (Kang) we’ve come to know is taking a backseat to a pernicious and virulent version of herself. No longer content with her supporting role on the Bat Team, Poison Ivy Mary uses her newfound powers to wreak havoc on Gotham.
I don’t mind these variations of classic DC Characters on Batwoman. At least the series is trying to do something new and out of the box. And honestly Kang looks pretty badass in the costume. CW have had more hits than misses when it comes to the Arrowverse/ Greg Berlanti costume designs.
