Megan Fox might just be the next Poison Ivy, if rumors prove true.

According to a report from fan site Bleeding Cool, Fox may be "lining up" to fulfill the role alongside Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn in upcoming all-female DC villains movie Gotham City Sirens.

As Bleeding Cool writes,

"Megan is a proper old school comic book geek. A good friend of the late Michael Turner, she committed to playing Fathom in any film adaptation because she loved the comics.

"She’s been in comic book productions, the recent Turtles films, Jonah Hex and playing Lois Lane on Robot Chicken.

"She has expressed an interest in playing Poison Ivy before. That or Red Sonja."

The site goes on to claim the 30-year-old has been ordering DC comic books featuring the villain straight to the Warner Bros. property.
