EDITOR'S OPINION

Alright folks here is another VC for the Batman franchise and this time its for this Seductive Villainess of the Plant World namely POISON IVY! Unlike other known Batman characters Poison Ivy's VA debut was in the DCAU namely the highly renowned Batman the Animated series (among various other shows) were she was voiced by Diane Pershing. And let me say this right now on how Poison Ivy's VA history definitely had a nice start as Diane was quite fitting for Ivy's seductive persona. Granted Ivy's role in the show is a bit more than just a pretty face (among other things) and Diane was able to handle Ivy's more dramatic and serious-minded moments just fine as well. Basically its another fine example over how exceptional the voice acting in the DCAU can be.

In the not-as-successful (but has its fair share of fans) The Batman Ivy was voiced by Piera Coppola and I am aware that this is not exactly a really renowned take on Poison Ivy as viewers have complained on how this lacks the sultry appeal that Poison Ivy is normally known for. While I admit I do agree that this does not have as much appeal as Ivy is normally known for and is kind of cute at best but when viewed on its own merits its not that bad though. Why do I say this you ask? Simple its a bit more due to Piera's overall performance as Ivy here as while like I said it lacks the sultry charm that the other ladies whom have voiced Ivy but I do like on how Piera's performance does have a nice playful tone which does work with what the show was trying to go for. While I do admit that Piera's work is probably the weakest of the Poison Ivy performances here its still by no means a bad one though.

In the fairly renowned 2009 Video game Batman Arkham Asylum while some of the DCAU voice cast were able to reprise their roles in the game Poison Ivy was not one of them as Tasia Valenza took over the role. However the good news is that Tasia is quite a natural alternative as she was able to give a nice sultry tone for Poison Ivy just fine in this game. But to be fair this is no surprise as Tasia has a pretty good history of doing lower sultry voices for lovely ladies in video games and she is known for doing them well and this is by no means an exception. Tasia's overall performance is a nice mixture of sultry and insanely sinister and is another fine example of the game's rather stellar voice acting.

In Batman Brave and the Bold over the course of 2010 there were a couple of episodes that Ivy appeared in and was voiced by different ladies in both episodes. Ivy's initial appearance in "Chill of the Night" in which she was voiced by Jennifer Hale in which this sounds like a very good casting idea as her voice definitely works for the role the only problem is that Ivy had a rather small role in that episode in which she only had a few lines but the performance is very good nevertheless. In "The Mask of Matches Malone" Ivy was voiced by Vanessa Marshall and while you can kind of tell the difference in voices one can easily tell that Vanessa was trying to do her performance in spirit with Jennifer Hale's and for the most part she succeeded. Vanessa's overall voice and performance also by all means worked with the role as well (and fortunately Ivy had a somewhat bigger role in this episode in which fortunately Vanessa had more to work with and she did well with it.) Overall I am not entirely sure whom to pick as most of these ladies did very well with this role.

(Note: Cyndi Williams voiced Poison Ivy in DC Universe Online and while her voice for Ivy is not bad but it was perhaps a little too raspy. However to be fair Cyndi's performance definitely suited on how the game was more trying to go for Ivy's insanely motherly love for her plants. Not quite the best performance of Poison Ivy here but Cyndi's work on the role is definitely not the worst.)

Of all The Casting Choice in Batman and Harley, Paget Brewster as Poison Ivy was the one I was most Interested in and..... She's a solid fit for the Role.

I hope she Reprises again at some Point....

Paget Brewster, not bad, not bad at all actually; kind'a sounds like a mix between Diane Pershing and Fryda Wolff, with just a hint of Tasia Valenza to go with it.

It's a nice, somewhat more human sounding take on Red, with a somewhat dry sense of humor to go with it.

BONUS: I guess Cindy Robinson, Rachael Kimsey,Colleen O'Shaughnessey or Mary McGlynn would be some more ideas for an ideal Poison Ivy.

VC thoughts update

I really like Diane Pershing the most in this role. I really feel she nailed the character, making her sound quite seductive, yet really deceptive.

Riki Lindhome is also pretty good despite the little material she gets. She is fun and she does sound fittingly seductive.

Natasha Leggero also manages to find a good balance between seductiveness and fun. Her take is pretty enjoyable.

Tasia Valenza is also pretty good, though there are times where I felt she overdid it with the seductiveness (to the point where she doesn't sound as natural as Diane). Still, she does a pretty solid job.

Tara Strong is also pretty good. She's funny, seductive and really deceptive. Her delivery can get a little wonky at times, but she works really well.

I also liked Jennifer Hale, Vanessa Marshall, Alyssa Milano, Laura Bailey and Fryda Wolff in the role.

Cyndi Williams has an epic voice, but I'm not really sold on her delivery. She's kinda forcing the ham.

First is Tasia for sounding lovely in the Arkham games

Second is Diane Pershing I like how she got a Jessica rabbit vibe to her performance

Third is Alyssa Milano I actually did enjoy her in Young justice and if she reprise with a bit more polish I think she be great

Side note: Carli mosier, Jamie marchi, Tabitha st germaine, or Wendee lee would make good choices for Poison ivy

I'll just cute to the basics.

Diane Pershing was the first to voice the Poison Ivy and define her voice as a character, but Tazia Valencia perfected it. Beautiful and seductive, but also manipulative, cunning, and dangerous.

Jennifer Hale and Vanessa Marshall were good choices, but they didn't have a lot to work with.

Laura Bailey is also a good choice, but she had less to work with what she had; shame really, I think she would be a great Ivy.

Tara Strong isn't a bad choice either, she can certainly go deeper than in most of the roles she gets, I'm thinking a more seductive take on her Barbara Gordon voice with a hint of Raven.

Alyssa Milanno was meh, pretty bland and once again not having enough to work with.

Fryda Wolff was okay, sure it was cartoony but she still managed to capture the seductive and devious nature of the character and still have fun with it.

Piera Coppola is a bit underrated, but is a bit indistinct compared to the rest; otherwise she's fine with her take on the character.

Overall, Tazia is number one in my book.

BONUS: Okay, this is gonna be typecast, but I'd love to Cree Summer, Grey Delisle, or Kari Wahlgren to voice Poison Ivy; and the reason why is because they all actually have pretty good chemistry and banter with Tara Strong, so if they pair either of them with Tara yet again as Harley Quinn, that would be deliciously entertaining.

Nika Futterman, Erica Luttrell, and Catherine Taber, Nicole Oliver, Karen Strassman, Morena Baccarin and Stana Katic would also be app choices; or Laura Post, Marsha Ray, Misty Lee or even Mae Whitman for more obscure choices (Mai having voiced Valaxina in TMNT being the best reference for Ivy's voice)

My vote goes to Diane Pershing (kinda the same case with my opinion on Adrienne Barbeaus Catwoman). I can definitely see where Autovolt is coming from with his opinion on Cyndi Williams' portryal as I kinda have a similar opinion to his (to a much lesser extent that is), and everyone else does well with their portrayals too.

"Nature's like a hydra, Batman; you chop off one branch and ten grow to take its place! You may cut down a tree, but you'll never find your way out of the forest!"

Here are My Top 5 Favourite Poison Ivy Voices:

5. Jennifer Hale/ Vanessa Marshall
4. Piera Coppola
3. Fryda Wolff
2. Diane Pershing/Tara Strong
1. Tazia Valencia

Future VA Suggestions:

Paula Tiso would be my main suggestion, and I picture her Poison Ivy having a Geisha design with Vine Tentacles ..... Anyway, her voice would be a more sultry version of her Laughing Octopus voice (with the snark of her Lulu voice).

I'm also thinking that Natalia Cigliuti might be a solid voice for Poison Ivy, using a distorted version of her Morinth voice.

I also recommend Indira Varma, Wendee Lee, Tamara Bernier and Anna Graves.

Tasia Valenza's voice for Poison Ivy is just perfect. The right amount of sultriness and seductiveness. This is pretty close to how I essentially imagine Ivy sounding. I'd love to see her voice Ivy outside of the Arkham games.

Diane Pershing is also really great in the role, she plays her nicely almost kind of like Kathleen Turner's Jessica Rabbit. I like how she doesn't make her too overtly sexual, granted BTAS was still a children's cartoon so in many ways it works to her advantage.

Tara Strong is surprisingly fitting as Ivy. Her Uma Thurman inspired take actually fits really well. It's great to hear Tara doing a role more like this. I wouldn't mind hearing her reprise again in the future.

Fryda Wolff is really enjoyable with her version, I can tell she's having a lot of fun in the role.

Jennifer Hale and Vanessa Marshall are just about tied for me, they both have nice mature sounding voices but not that much else to work with, again I wouldn't mind them reprising again in the future.

Piera Coppola works for the version of Ivy she voices. Though it sounds a bit indistinct when compared to everyone else here.

Laura Bailey.....ugh I know she could do Ivy so much better. Why didn't she go closer to sounding like her Lust from FMA. She's a natural fit for the role and it's a shame this is what we got.

Cyndi Williams does sound sultry but she kinda sound way too mature and old sounding. Her acting is rather strange.

Alyssa Milano sounds way too light and too unhinged sounding. Easily the least fitting voice here.

In the end I'm going with Tasia but I also enjoyed Diane, Tara and Fryda's portrayals just the same.

BONUS: I've always wanted Venus Terzo to voice Poison Ivy, I think she'd be a perfect and natural in the role. I could also see someone like Tara Platt, Emily Neves or Stephanie Young being a great fit too.

My vote stays with Tasia. Like Poke said, she is perfect at doing low sultry voices, and her Posion Ivy is the best example of this. A great standout performance in Arkham Asylum & the rest of the Arkham series.

Oh, Fryda. You had to be the bud of more plant jokes. They're getting thorn thin by this point. The writers really need to start branching out. Take up a new leaf! Or go back to the roots and see where the comedic value in Ivy stems from.

But seriously, maybe have the super sexy Ivy be voiced by a guy for a little comedy. Someone like Steve... bloom. ;)

When I first heard Tara as Ivy in Lego Batman 3, Uma Thurman's Live Portrayal Was not What Came to my mind.

Although thinking back to that B&R Film, I do See The Flaws of how the characters were portrayed, Uma As Ivy was one of the very few good things about it.

While I do think Tara was Reasonably Good with the Seductive voice she gave to Ivy, I'm sticking With Diane.

Speaking as someone who considers Tara Strong to be among the most overrated voice actors in the industry, I have to admit that her Poison Ivy was actually really good. She captured the character's sexiness and craftiness, a HUGE step up from Laura's performance in the previous LEGO Batman game. I'd put her between Vanessa (My third favorite Ivy) and Pierra (My now-fifth favorite Ivy) when it comes to how I rank the Ivys.

Tara Strong is very good as Poison Ivy. Has the right amount of sultriness. A step up from Laura Bailey's performance in the previous game. Laura Bailey's not a bad VA, by any means, but her Poison Ivy is bland and quite frankly forgettable.

Tara is good, she had the seductive side down but that's really it.
The biggest thing isn't casting Tara, it was a matter of time for Tara to be Ivy, it's that Laura was in the game and would have been a good time for her to get a second shot. I mean, Laura's attempt isn't the greatest but could easily have improved her work.

1. Tasia Valenza: Her voice makes for the perfect Ivy: sexy, cunning, and dangerous. I can definitely believe that this is the voice of a plant-powered succubus who is a mother to her precious plants. Another fantastically cast role in the Arkham games.

2. Diane Pershing: Her take is almost as great as Tasia's, as it's also very sexy, intelligent, and highly mischievous as well. I particularly love how deep and husky it is, it gives her the feel of a 1950's era femme fatale.

3. Vanessa Marshall: While her take on Poison Ivy is meant to be a bit sillier due to this being the Brave and the Bold, but I think she makes an all around solid Ivy. She certainly sounds sexy, sly, and dangerous enough.

4. Piera Copola: Her voice is fitting for a younger Ivy, and is all around fun and nice to listen to. She's not quite as good as the three lovely ladies above, but she still manages to make up for her rather subtle sultriness with genuine menace and delivers her more aggressive lines quite well.

5. Cyndi Williams: I feel that her take was kind of inconsistent, as she sounded kind of awkward and forced at times. However, other parts of her performance were great, especially at the very end where she manages to sound totally unhinged and even slightly terrifying. She ranks a tad lower for me thanks to her more awkward moments, but she'd be fantastic at the role if she were to keep that sexy, scary tone consistent.

6. Alyssa Milano: She sounds pretty decent at times, though her high voice is a bit off-putting. She's also a bit awkward and forced at times while others I feel she overdoes it.

7. Jennifer Hale: This performance just comes off as generic to me. Nothing really worth talking about, and not in a good way. Bland, boring, and forgettable.

8. Laura Bailey: Come on, Laura! I know it's a bit part with not much to work with, but you can do so much better than that! I feel she'd actually be fantastic if she were to use her Lust voice, but what we have is completely and utterly uninspired and flat. It doesn't feel like she put in any effort whatsoever.

All I have to say is that I think that I'd love to hear Nika Futterman in the role. She's fantastic at sounding both creepy and sexy, and definitely can sound clever enough to outdo even Tasia and Diane.

For another sexy/intelligent take on Poison Ivy, I think Janyse Jaud would be a natural and perfect fit.

But I find the idea of a creepier and more threatening Ivy intreaguing. To make a nice balance between sexy and evil, Nika Futterman would probably be my choice.

1-: Diane Pershing: She was intelligent, could be humorous, sultry, and evil with more layers to Ivy's personality than you would think.
2-: Tasia Valenza: I like it, but she only focuses on Ivy's sexy side, which works for the less humanistic version. She also sounds a bit forced in Arkham City IMHO.
3-Cyndi Williams-: She really nailed Ivy's creepy side. I love it, one of the best DCUO performances.
4-Vanessa Marshall: Pretty good, sounds a bit more posh than the other VA's here.
5-: Jennifer Hale: Another good voice, but it's a little generic. I would like to see Jen reprise the role and see if she can make the voice sound more unique.
6-: Alyssa Milano: I don't mind it, she's a bit forced at points but the voice itself fits the character fine.

8. Alyssa Milano - Sorry, but Alyssa's not cut out to be a voice actress.

@Galactic_Cyrus - Like you said, it was a bit part. So I'm not sure if it's really fair to properly criticize her.

@HyperVoiceActing Who, Jennifer Hale? It's alright, but I've heard that voice from her before and it's just kinda generic to me now.

1) LAURA BAILEY (Finally one of my castings for a character happens in real life. And let me tell you it doesn't disappoint! IMO)
2) Tasia Valenza (Once again the Arkhamverse brings a great voice to the table.)
3) Jennifer Hale (Jenny at some of her fine, fine work)
4) Diane Pershing (Oldie, but a very goodie!)
5) Vanessa Marshall (Tough call but I'm going with Marshall)

I liked what The Batman did to a lot of it's villains, particularly Riddler and Killer Croc. But Poison Ivy was a real disappointment. Naturally, I think Piera is the weakest. I don't really care for Cyndi's or Laura's performance either.

@VctrBnsn I haven't said who I do like yet. Well, Pershing was the first, and still sounds great. Jennifer and Vanessa are equally good, but I guess I'll go on the Arkham game bandwagon and say Tasia is my fav. Alyssia was OK, but not great.

@VctrBnsn Disagree. I think Ivy was one of the most interesting villains the show had.

I'm gonna go with Tasia Valenza. Everyone else here was good and the voice from Batman Dark Tomorrow was alright.

I liked them all equally except Alyssa and Piera who I thought their voice was too high for Ivy's seducing demeanor.

@TrippedB Piera's is not meant to be seductive, though.

I'm going to go out on a limb and vote for Cyndi Williams, her Ivy sounds more motherly, which is what I think of her since she loves her plants so much..

 4 Shout Outs!
1. Tasia Valenza- I thought she was the only one that was really captured the seductive side the best. I will admit at times she can go over the top with it but I still enjoy her. Plus she captures the "motherly" side of Ivy as well.

2. Vanessa Marhsal- It does have a sultry side to it and you can hear a caring side too. I think it's somewhat underrated.

3. Jen Hale- she was kinda typecasted here but if it ain't broke, don't fix it. If she was given more material I might move her to first.

4. Piera Coppola- Poeple say because it's younger it doesn't have the sultry feel but when I was younger (which I was younger then the character in the show) I thought it did, though now I seee the complaints but she had a good playful side which can sometimes make up for a sexy side. Either way it's still a good voice and I can see her become the Ivy we all know.

5. Diane Pershing- Meh, sounds flat at times but does have a seductive side. I think she got better in New Adventures but haven't see that show in a while.

6. Cyndi Williams- I actually like the raspy voice, still not as seductive as some of the others but not bad. I do like how it's creepy yet motherly, it's something others didn't do and I actually like it.

7. Laura Bailey- I'm a little underwhelmed, I wished she used more of her Lust voice since this take is a little generic. I know Laura can do better and she has done better sultry voices. Though maybe her getting two lines is also holds her back. Though I still do like it though.

8. She's trying too hard to sound scary and she doesn't sound scary...or sultry...or caring...in fact she's more generic then anything else. Young Justice isn't really flattering to Batman villains is it?

Pershing. Though the others are good too. I don't think Ivy's ever had a bad voice.

Diane Persching for me. Seductive but distinctive. The rest are too generic. Tasia Valenza wasn't too bad but she goes a bit overboard.

Tasia Valenza for Ivy. She sounds perfect for a femme fatale like Ivy.

Well, I must admit, despite Lego Batman being a lgihter game and the awful green pun, Laura Bailey was good as Ivy. Then again, we was also Lust in FMA and Lust was a femme fatale, too.XD Sticking with Valenza, though.

I'm going to give it to Tasia Valenza. She makes her sound seductive and yet, dangerous, malicious even.

Most "The Batman" fans actually like the show's Ivy. She doesn't have the adult sex appeal, sure, but her character is interesting, and Coppola does a great job voicing her.

As much as I wanna go with Diane Pershing out of love for the animated series....I got to go with Tasia Valenza here. She has the perfect sound of sultry and sexy that define Ivy perfectly.
