As per Variety, Bridget will essay the role of Pamela Isley, also known as Poison Ivy, in the superhero series.

Bridget’s character has been described as a “passionate, brilliant scientist with a mind for changing the world for the better”. But her plans shifted when she was experimented on by a colleague, injected with various plant toxins which turned her into the infamous Batman villain Poison Ivy.
