Everyone and their grandma is reporting that Megan Fox really wants to be Poison Ivy in a recently announced Gotham City Sirens movie. Gotham City Sirens is a comic from a few years ago that featured the unlikely(?) team of Poison Ivy, Catwoman and Harley Quinn. It's DC/WB's answer to the fact that Suicide Squad was kinda terrible but everyone really liked Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. The movie still made like $500 million so you have to have some sort of sequel. Why not highlight what everyone liked and ditch everything else?
The bad news of course is that David Ayer is set to direct the movie because DC/WB only knows of two directors. I mean if there was ever a movie for them to step out of the box and hire someone better known for comedy or straight drama, this is their chance. I guess WB/DC just figures if they keep making the same style of movie over and over eventually we'll like them.
Oh yeah, no chance of Megan Fox being Poison Ivy. When is the last time a well known star lobbied for a role they actually got? Ask Donald Glover how that worked out. Of course I think they could do a lot worse than Ms. fox. She's not unattractive AND she's actually kinda good. I know all the critics panned Jennifer's Body but she was kinda the bomb in that and she was a lot more enjoyable in The New Girl than I think anyone expected. Make it happen DC.
