Seriously? She says it's this
Saturday? Maybe she just means she'll be voicing Barbara. In any case, it's good news. Strong is one of the great voice artists of our time, and she's up there with Yvonne Craig and Dina Meyer as my favorite Barbara Gordon portrayers.
Maybe it's to let Gordon fight crime on the streets occasionally? A lieutenant in the field, busting heads from time to time, is more realistic than a commissioner in the field. Maybe.
Yeah, I've thought that myself, that Gordon's implausibly hands-on for a commissioner. And come to think of it, we've been seeing "Lieutenant Gordon" here and there ever since Batman: Year One
, which was the influence the Nolanverse itself drew on at the start.
