Jane the Virgin and Diary of a Future President star Gina Rodriguez will join the cast to voice Barbara Gordon.
The actor, who has featured on Netflix’s animated series Big Mouth, will play the daughter of former police commissioner Jim Gordon and star detective for Gotham Pd. Throughout the series, Barbara will grapple with her own ethics, as she tries to keep within the lines of police work yet is finding herself drawn to Batman’s self-styled method of justice.
She said she was excited to be going on this “sonic adventure” with the “iconic” role.
She joins a cast that already includes Winston Duke as Bruce Wayne and Jason Isaacs as Wayne’s loyal butler and right-hand man, Alfred.
