Gotham casts a new – and very different – Poison Ivy

We reported last week that in Season 3 of Gotham we’d be seeing a new Poison Ivy and ideed, we now have the new actress.

In season one and two of the show Ivy – or Ivy ‘Pamela’ Pepper here for some weird reason – was played by young actress Clare Foley who has now been replaced by a much more, em, grown up looking Maggie Geha.

Geha starred in Ted 2.

It’s interesting to see this new casting, especially the age difference between 14-year-old Foley and 19-year-old Geha.

We speculated a while back that Gotham could take a jump forward between seasons to get to the point where we’re closer to Bruce becoming Batman… could that be what we’re seeing here?

Or maybe we’re reading too much into it.

What we do know is that with Indian Hills’ worst villains – including, curiously, a Bruce Wayne lookalike – on the streets of Gotham, season three could take the massively improved show to unforeseen heights.

We’ll all find out later this year.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
