|“||If you call me Batgirl, can I call you Batboy?||„|
|~ Barbara Gordon after becoming Batgirl.|
Barbara Gordon, also known as Batgirl, is Batman's love interest and one of the two tritagonists (alongside Alfred Pennyworth) of The Lego Batman Movie.
She is voiced by Rosario Dawson, who is best known as Mimi Marquez from the Broadway hit musical, RENT and also played Laura Vasquez in Men In Black II, Wonder Woman in the DC Animated Film Universe and Ahsoka Tano in The Mandalorian.
Although she’s new to being a superhero, Batgirl is every bit Batman’s equal as a crime-fighter. They may disagree about the rules and methods, but Barbara Gordon’s experience as a police officer and her desire to protect Gotham City make her the perfect partner when things get tough and villains are on the rise. She might even have a few things to teach the Dark Knight about busting bad guys.
