This was quickly shut down by Gunn himself on Twitter, but it sounds like Braga did like the idea of suiting-up as the plant-controlling Batman villain.

While speaking to Digital Spy about the movie, Braga - who actually plays Corto Maltese rebel leader Sol Soria - brought Ivy up when asked which other DC character she'd like to play if given the opportunity.

"People were asking James [Gunn] if I was Poison Ivy," she said, referencing that early rumor. "The more I read about it then I was like, that's interesting, it's a good villain. I think that would be cool."

Poison Ivy has appeared in live-action a couple of times, with Uma Thurman taking on the role in Batman and Robin, and Clare Foley, Maggie Geha and Peyton List playing a version of the character in Gotham. Both Birds of Prey director Cathy Yan and star Margot Robbie have expressed interest in introducing the villain in a potential sequel, but the future of that franchise is very much up in the air at the moment.
