After being infected by a missing “Bat Trophy” – a mysterious thorn – Mary’s journey culminates next week in the episode “Double Trouble” in the mid-season on November 24, when she transforms into the supervillain.

In the episode on November 17, we learned that Mary had been infected by one of Pam Isley’s vines, and now “the selfless and caring Mary Hamilton (Kang) we have come to know, and love, is taking a back seat to a harmful and virulent version of himself Poison Ivy Mary is no longer happy with her supporting role on Bat Team, but uses her newfound powers to stand out, stand out and express her deeply buried opinions and desires – no matter who or what may be in the way of her.But more awaits Mary as her fate frees her at the root of her new persona as she realizes that her power blossomed to give life to another … Gotham’s long gone and most infamous botanist. “

“Having seen the fallout of Batman’s Rogues’ weapons this season, we wanted to make a few of these ‘trophies’ personal to our Bat Team, and Mary felt like the ideal character to undergo a major’ photosynthesis, ‘” he said. executive producer Caroline Dries. “The fun part of making each villain’s powers transferable is that we get to make our own spin on the character – this one through the lens of what Mary wanted to create: something amplified, playful, fashion-forward and sexy. It was so exciting to work with Nicole when we chose hair color, eye color and of course the clothes themselves. But it was only when Nicole appeared on the set and completely killed her performance that the character Poison Ivy Mary was complete. “

Costume designer Maya Mani, head of the makeup department Cory Roberts and head of the hair department Ashley Young all agreed: “It was a collaboration all around to help bring Caroline Dries’ vision for Poison Ivy Mary to life.” Mani said of the look: “I created this costume to reflect Mary’s desire to be seen and heard by those closest to her, while maintaining her unique eye for fun and imaginative fashion; a strong shoulder and a corset that symbolizes a trellis that leads her alter ego upward. ” Said Roberts: “I imagined her character was inherently powerful, alluring and seductive; it was the combination of beautiful glowing skin with colors chosen to highlight and celebrate Nicole’s complexion and texture.” Young added: “Nicole and I tried several wigs in different shades of red until we found the perfect one so we did not lose ‘Mary’ in all the glamor but could reflect her and bring out her Poison Ivy alter ego.”

Logline for the upcoming episode on November 24: “As Ryan (Javicia Leslie)’s family dynamics become more complicated, she’s also in the middle of a Bat Team stand-off between Luke (Camrus Johnson) and Mary (Nicole Kang). Meanwhile, Alice (Rachel Skarsten) finds a new sidekick in her step-sister, who turns into the supervillain who turns everyone else green with envy. ”
