Fans Rooting For Karen Gillan to Join the New DCU

While Karen Gillan’s casting in the DC Universe is yet to be confirmed, fans have rallied behind the idea of the Jumanji star exploring intriguing roles such as Poison Ivy. Many have eagerly expressed their anticipation for Gillan to share the screen with Margot Robbie, who has portrayed the role of Harley Quinn in multiple DC projects, including Gunn’s 2021 film The Suicide Squad.

“Can’t fault her for wanting Margot Robbie,” one fan shared on X (Twitter). However, the Oscar-nominated actress’ return to the DC or the possibility of her reprising her role remains uncertain. Fans also urged the studio to bring Robbie back as Harley Quinn while deeming Gillan a “perfect” actress to portray the character.

Many also emphasized their desire to witness their story unfold within the broader DC universe, noting that they “haven’t seen Ivy in a live-action movie for decades.” Although the character has appeared in shows like Gotham and Batwoman, Uma Thurman famously portrayed Poison Ivy in the 1997 film Batman & Robin.



The film marked the character’s last appearance in live-action on the big screen. Birds of Prey director Cathy Yan had expressed her desire to bring Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn’s relationship on-screen, but any potential developments for the film were halted.
