The Hollywood Reporter had an article today with news that David Ayer would be stepping backing into the DC Universe to direct a new project with Margot Robbie who would be reprising her role as Harley Quinn. The new film is apparently going to focus on the comic series The Sirens which along with Quinn features Catwoman and Posion Ivy. With that news what better thing to do than speculate on which actresses should be cast in the roles.
Eva Green would be a perfect choice for Catwomen. She has played the villain in 300 Rise of an Empire and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For extremely well. While both of those films may not have been the greatest sequels she was excellent in both, and Rise of an Empire is a guilty pleasure of mine. She would be a natural fit to play the troubled anti-hero who has an on-again off-again relationship with the Dark Knight. The more I think about her in the role the more I want to see it. There are, of course, many other actresses which could work, but she is far and away my first choice.
For Poison Ivy I don't have a strong a feeling for who should be cast in the role, but Rose Leslie of Game of Thrones fame wouldn't be a bad place for the casting director to start. She could easily play the sexy seductress who can control plants. Emma Stone might be another popular choice, but she might have priced herself out of a assemble film such as this. Rose Leslie has already shown she can play a tough character in Game of Thrones and stepping into Poison Ivy's shoes wouldn't be difficult. Her natural Irish accent wouldn't hurt the role either. Maybe an unknown or a even a lesser known talent could be cast in the role, but she would be a good fit and garner excitement for the film.
It's probably (it is) too early to think about casting for a film which may never get off the ground. However, with the popularity of Margot's performance as Harley Quinn and the character's popularity overall the project has a good chance of being on the DC film slate. It's always fun to speculate on who could get the role and I think these too actress would bring great talent to the DCEU.
Comment and let me know who your choices would be for the two roles. Like share and all that fun stuff.
