The biggest reveal from Warner Bros this week was that Batgirl will be a playable character in the game via the season pass. Batgirl is one of Batman's side-kicks and a member of the Batman Family in a similar way to Robin. But who is she?

Fortunately we didn't have to wait long for an answer as today, Arkham Knight's director Sefton Hill spoke out on Twitter.

"As a few of you have asked about the DLC, 'who is Batgirl?' I can confirm it is indeed Barbara Gordon."
