GROWING SHADOWS: THE POISON IVY FAN FILM
"Why is it that when you wear a costume, people call you a hero - when I do the same, they call me damaged?"
Someone has been poisoning the residents of Gotham, using venomous plants. All signs suggest that this is the work of Poison Ivy - but as she's been locked up inside Arkham Asylum, how could she be responsible? A mysterious visitor will find out the truth.
This film is not endorsed by DC in any way - it's simply a passion project by people who adore the subject matter. For that reason, no one involved has or will make a profit on the material.

"A suitably Danny Elfman-style score, harking back to Tim Burton’s two Batman films, is one of many welcome nods to the caped crusader’s gothic origins. Sophie Black has reinterpreted this classic DC villainess whilst also exploring her own dark obsessions in this greenhouse of horrors."
- Michael Sales, Midlands Movies
"Beautifully shot, love the use of lighting - you could tell who Ivy's visitor was from the framing of the shadows on his face, a SUPERB touch. A far far better Ivy than Uma Thurman, that's for sure! 4/5 dark and atmospheric, a clever take on the comic narrative."
- Judges' Reviews, Beeston Film Festival
"A great little fan film made by a cast that obviously has a love for the source material... all in all it's a movie for fans of the DC franchises, which Hollywood desperately needs to look into and maybe give us a proper, full feature Ivy film."
- Sid The Vicious, IMDb User Review

ROBERT DUKES - Bruce Wayne
Anti Heroes have always been something Robert has been drawn to: Han Solo, Robin Hood...
His striking frame and natural intensity has earned him roles in both film and on stage, with recent castings including the charming yet dangerous antagonist in Surveilled, and a soldier in World War 2 drama The Code. Detectives are a staple for Robert, having played one in numerous films - and most recently on stage, as the cynical and steely DCI Daniels in The Rally at The Stockwell Playhouse.
