    The whole point is: if Pamela Isley will be in this universe, she would be the femme fatale with a perfect beautiness like in the comics?
    I wouldn't be so sure.

    Someone in this forum theorized an eco-terrorist version of Pamela. Considering it will a sort-of-a-realistic point on the character, she won't be dressed with plant of course.

    Plus, an obvious choice for the character could be wrong in the wrong hands.
    Who knows how Nicholson could have been in the Schumacher universe?
    Or think about Jim Carrey in the Burtonverse or Lee Jones in Nolan's. They could have been AMAZING in their roles.

    Considering all of this, and looking at the age of Pattinson and the kind of casting choices until now, my top choice for Pamela is Anya Taylor Joy.

    She's a terrific actress, beautiful but with something weird and horrorific in her charme.
    Plus, she's doing a good career with directors, movies and roles noir/horror/thriller movies.

    I just think it's too safe and boring. I want the audience to be either surprised, intrigued, or thrown for a whirl. There admittedly IS a bit of a rift between an actor feeling obvious and a super popular choice for the character that everyone and their mother clamors for.

    Paul Dano for Riddler and Barry Keoghan for Joker fit the former, but they're still exciting choices to me because they're not as played out as suggestions like James McAvoy for Riddler, Willem Dafoe for Joker, either Mads Mikkelsen or Giancarlo Esposito for Freeze, etc.

    The thing is , if we're talking about a general audience, I don't think you'd get that many people who would automatically assume they'd know what they'd get from Chastain as Ivy.

    It's basically us in fandom who would come with assumptions about her performance ,since she's a name who's been suggested by those in fandom.

    I actually don't think if she were cast that general audiences would come in with a crystalized notion of how she would play Poison Ivy.

    GA tend to give actors and actresses alot more leeway than fandom does , and an actress like Chastain isn't a pop culture icon the way Nicholson was when he was cast as Joker , Devito was when he was cast as Penguin, or a pop culture Figure like Ben Affleck or even Robert Pattinson when cast as Batman.

    Chastain doesn't come with that type of preconception, so audiences would come to her Ivy with a clean slate.

    If Chastain's performance is good, and her character is written well , it's just as likely she could surprise and intrigue audiences just as well as an " outside the box " choice.

    Frankly , I wouldn't assume that alot people outside of fandom would think Chastain is an obvious choice for Poison Ivy to begin with.

    She seems like an obvious choice to our circles, because she's been brought up alot , but I think if she was cast , the entertainment reporters ,outside of fandom, would point to the variety of roles she's played from The Help, Zero Dark Thirty, the Eyes of Tammy Faye etc., including an Oscar win.

    At the end of the day we're all gonna have our own preferences , so I can understand not being into one actor in relation to another.

    I'd love to see Christopher Abbott as Harvey Dent/Two Face and Juno Temple as Harleen Quinzel/Harley Quinn.

    My two cents: Andy Garcia and Bobby Cannavale in the Penguin series.

    Maybe Garcia as Maroni.

    I need Christopher Abbott, Mia Goth, Jesse Buckley, Maika Monroe, Callum Turner in this trilogy/franchise so badly... even in small roles.

    As well as Juno Temple, Mia Goth has proved time and time again she'd be a fantastic Harley Quinn.

    Just look at this recently released trailer for Infinity Pool.

    I’ve really been thinking about Jamie Campbell as Scarecrow lately.

    I like the idea of Mia Goth being in the mix with this series, but I’m gonna throw a curve ball and say she shouldn’t be Harley Quinn.

    She should be Punchline.

    Taking Olivia Cooke out of consideration for Ivy.

    She’s Lois Lane now, or I burn this place to the ground. :o

    I mean, she’d be great. But I wonder how large a role Leslie Thompkins would actually be—is it something Dern would consider?

    I like Indira Varma, 49

    I could see Bennett as Vicki Vale maybe. She’s a great actress.

    But I’d prefer someone more international for Silver St. Cloud. My current pick is Matilda De Angelis, 27 from HBO’s The Undoing and Netflix’s Robbing Mussolini:
