Of all the announced DC Extended Universe films, Gotham City Sirens seems like one that will actually come to fruition. Set to be directed by Suicide Squad's David Ayer, the synopsis from the film's IMDB page is simply, "Following three of Gotham City's most notorious female criminals on one of their most dangerous missions yet." The three criminals in question being Poison Ivy, Catwoman, and Harley Quinn.
Though we already have a Harley in Margot Robbie, sites have been speculating both who would be best to play Poison Ivy and Catwoman, as well as who may actually be interested. Based on two tweets from Bryce Dallas Howard, she... might be interested in the role?
First, Howard was asked point blank by a fan about the comics character, responding with a very playful Poison Ivy GIF:
However, when Screen Rant picked up the news and ran with it, her reponse was more cryptic:
"Hmmmm?" "HMMMM?" With four 'M's! If only emojis were clearer! Or, you know, her words were more clear. That would help too.
That response can mean at least two things. One, she may be questioning the very article because it's based off a single tweet she may not have given much thought to. Or, is it a more mysterious "hmmmm?" Like, "hmmmm, I may be interested in that" or "hmmmm, I know more than you do."
Bryce Dallas Howard is certainly no stranger to blockbusters and even the superhero genre in particular. After all, she did play Gwen Stacy in Spider-Man 3. I bet you forgot about that. She also starred alongside Chris Pratt in Jurassic World, one of the biggest hits of all time. I would certainly be interested in Howard's interpretation of Poison Ivy, if that's what she wants? Or if the studio even wants her to do it?
