The Batgirl In Batman: Arkham Knight Is Barbara Gordon


When Warner Bros. and Rocksteady announced that Batgirl would be added to Batman: Arkham Knight in her own prequel DLC story, there were some that wondered just which Batgirl it was—Barbara Gordon or Cassandra Cain.


Director Sefton Hill clarified via his Twitter that the Batgirl in Arkham Knight is indeed Barbara Gordon. Hill did not specify just when the prequel story takes place, but given that Barbara is confined to a wheelchair during Rocksteady’s Arkham trilogy, it has to be sometime before the events of the three games.



Additionally, Warner Bros. have released a new video of some of the voice actors that are voicing characters in Batman: Arkham Knight. You can view this above. In addition to the voice actors you see in the video, Arkham Knight will also include Troy Baker as Two Face, Nolan North as Penguin, Tara Strong as Harley Quinn, Ashley Greene as Barbara Gordon, and Scott Porter as Nightwing.


Batman: Arkham Knight will be released on June 23rd for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
