Middleton’s interpretation of Pamela Isley is stunning, as the red-haired villain/anti-hero is surrounded by nature, with flowers and butterflies flowing around her. Middleton gives Poison Ivy an incredibly photo-realistic look while looking straight at the reader. Ivy wears her original costume, including her leaf necklace, as the piece honors the character’s first appearance in Batman #181. The DCEU should reference the image whenever they want to cast a live-action Poison Ivy; it’s so good.

The cover of the image is perfect for a comic book, as the costume, the setting, the flowery details and the butterflies perched atop her body beautifully encapsulate the hero’s identity. With Poison Ivy finally making its way to the DCEU, the Joshua Middleton image should be a case study on adapting her original look to the big screen, as the DC Comics cover image is flawless.

Middleton rarely delivers anything unique and stunning with his DC Comics cover art, and the new Poison Ivy piece is no exception. It’s so photo-realistic that if you told us it was an actual costume test/concept art photo from the DCEU, we’d probably believe it. Poison Ivy has never looked so good.
