Poison Ivy Trailer Reveals Epic New Form & Promises Harley Quinn Romance

DC has released a trailer for Poison Ivy’s new comic. Not only will the series give her a dramatic new look, it might reconnect her with Harley Quinn.

A new trailer is hinting at a big future for Poison Ivy that may bring her back to her beloved Harley Quinn. DC Comics has released an inside look at the villain’s upcoming comic that could also potentially see her becoming more powerful than ever.

As one of Batman’s oldest antagonists, Poison Ivy has had a lot of time in the spotlight to develop her character. Fans know her as the former Dr. Pamela Isley, whose passion for plant life and distaste for humanity helped craft her into one of the DC Universe’s most extreme warriors for the environment. She’s also well-known among readers for her strong association with Harley Quinn, her closest confidante and occasional lover. While the two have embraced their feelings and explored a relationship, they’ve recently since parted ways at the suggestion of Harley, who encouraged her companion to find her own path independent of Quinn.

As Ivy prepares for that new journey in a new series, DC has released a trailer on YouTube featuring Poison Ivy’s writer, G. Willow Wilson, letting readers know what they can expect. Wilson reveals that the book is “a love story from the perspective of a villain.” She says that fans of both Harley and Ivy will be pleased with the new book as images of Quinn and Ivy together flash across the screen. Wilson also mentions that the series will dispel a few myths about Ivy, answering questions fans have long-wondered about her. The writer also cryptically says that something is coming that “Ivy does not expect and can’t control.” Then, an image of Ivy comes on screen at the 0:49 mark that shows Ivy with a remarkable new look.

The sneak peak at Ivy’s powerful, new form may have something to do with the mission she’s about to undertake. Solicitations have revealed that Ivy is setting out to complete her life’s work. The synopsis for the first issue mentions “a gift to the world that will heal the damage dealt to it…by ending humanity.” While it’s hard to say what her gift will actually be, the upgrade she’s showing off in the trailer may be what she needs to save the Earth at the cost of everyone else.

However, Wilson stresses that Poison Ivy is indeed a love story and that the relationship between Ivy and Harley Quinn are one of the most fan-favorite couples in comics. Ivy may be plotting to destroy humanity, but it may be her way of coping with the loss of her love. Wilson acknowledges that Ivy has bounced between being a villain and an anti-hero and by examining her connection to Harley, she might discover which side she’s really on. Poison Ivy’s new journey presents a chance for the character to have some serious self-reflection, which just may reunite her with her greatest love, Harley Quinn.
