For the first two seasons of the Batman prequel, Poison Ivy was played by young actress Clare Foley (pictured). In season three, Maggie Geha will portray the character as a young woman.
Does that mean the show is jumping forward a few years? Nope. FOX says all will be explained in the new season:
The series also will catch up with the future POISON IVY (Maggie Geha), who, after an encounter with a monster from Indian Hill, finds herself reborn as a young woman who’s harnessed the full power of her charms; and will dive into the origin stories of JERVIS TETCH/MAD HATTER (Benedict Samuel), a talented hypnotist teetering on the edge of madness; and the TWEED BROTHERS.”
Season three of Gotham premieres on September 19th at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
