Behind the scenesEdit
- Barbara Gordon should not be confused with the character who becomes Batgirl. Traditionally, this would be her daughter, also named Barbara, but it remains uncertain whether Christopher Nolan will want to take the Gordons' daughter to that conclusion.
- Full name in comic continuity is Barbara Eileen Gordon.
- She, her husband, her son, and The Joker are the only ones who know that Batman is innocent of Harvey Dent's crimes.
- In The Dark Knight Rises, she and Gordon have seperated, having taken the children with her to Cleveland. This is most likely reminiscient to the comics, though unlike in the comics where the divorce was a result of an affair on Gordon's part with another female officer the movie states that it was due to Harvey's attempt on their family that caused the divorce to occur.
