The red hair suited her once before...

Scarlett Johansson has been at the forefront of Marvel news for a few months now. Back in July, the actor led her long-overdue Black Widow standalone film, which explored Natasha Romanoff’s past, introduced Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova to Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and acted as Johansson’s swan song performance as the Russian agent.

Johansson has also made front-page news over her suing claim against Disney and this leaves her place in the MCU rather up in the air. In amongst this uncertainty, one artist thought it would be a good idea to bring Johansson over to DC’s corner for a brief moment, while they made her come to life as Poison Ivy.

Johansson may be naturally blonde-haired, however, her time playing Natasha Romanoff proved she could easily pull off red hair. Jumping into a character notorious for her red and green colorway is clearly an easy fit for Johansson, according to this piece of fan art. The actor can be seen standing within a greenhouse covered in foliage, with ivy covering her chest.

Meet the Artist

BeyondityArt is a New Zealand-based artist with a number of illustrations to their name. Dabbling in both DC and Marvel lore, the artist has created a few group illustrations of superheroes together, including the Teen Titans and the Justice League in its entirety. The artist has also digitally manipulated photos to show character iterations standing next to one another, such as Heath ledger’s Joker with Joaquin Phoenix’s.


Poison Ivy’s DCEU Future

Johansson’s fan-casting isn’t the first actor to be attached to the femme fatale, as DC fans believe Poison Ivy will make another live-action debut very soon. Ana De Armas and Charlize Theron have also been the subject of Poison Ivy fan art, with many other actors attached to the role too.

Some DC fans believe that The Suicide Squad director James Gunn could be gearing up to helm the live-action Gotham City Sirens. The comic of the same name features Catwoman, Harley Quinn, and Poison Ivy and there have even been fleeting rumors that Scarlett Johansson has had brief talks with DC about a new role.
