    Fans have also theorized how Ana de Armas could enter the DC universe in the role of Poison Ivy. Poison Ivy is the alter ego of Dr. Pamela Isley. Ivy is the villain in the story and is against Batman. The character does like Harley Quinn and uses her plants for evil deeds instead of good. As Armas played the role of Paloma in the James Bond movie, fans could see her playing the role of Poison Ivy in the DC Universe.

    Many fans have also made edits imagining Armas as a Poison Ivy. Fans also want to see Ana de Armas along with Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. Nothing has been confirmed by the studios yet but it would be cool to see Ana de Armas in the superhero universe. It would be a good career move for the actress as she has starred in movies like ‘Knives Out‘, ‘No Time To Die‘, and ‘The Gray Man‘. She has been a part of many action movies so it would be fun to see her in the DCEU.
