Aug. 31 (UPI) -- Jane the Virgin and Paradise Lost actress Bridget Regan has signed on to play brilliant botanist Pamela Isley/Poison Ivy, in Season 3 of The CW's Batwoman.

Isley becomes the villain Poison Ivy after a colleague injected her with plant toxins that gave her super-powers.

The character was memorably played by Uma Thurman in 1997's Batman and Robin, and Clare Foley, Maggie Geha and Peyton List took turns playing the villain on the Fox drama, Gotham, which ran 2014-19.

Regan will appear alongside other Batwoman cast newbies Nick Creegan and Victoria Caragena, who will play Marquis Jet and Renee Montoya, in Season 3.

Original cast member Dougray Scott announced in June he was exiting the show after two seasons.

Regan has also appeared on Agent Carter, The Last Ship and White Collar.
