Posted by SFilp • May 3, 2013 at 4:56 p.m. PDT
Updated: The official Injustice: Gods Among Us Facebook has posted an image of Batgirl with a little information on when we'll be seeing her gameplay.

Batgirl has been confirmed as a DLC character in Injustice: Gods Among Us, as she has appeared in the game's downloadable content area. This is the second DLC character that has been confirmed with the first being Lobo.

Looks like the bat's out of the bag.

Batgirl will be a playable DLC character in Injustice.

Watch for her gameplay next week!

Batgirl's character art can be seen in the second image below. Please note, that while she's on the Marketplace you cannot download her, the completion bar will get to 99% then reset to 0%. After a few attempts it will prompt you saying Batgirl cannot be downloaded.

DAAAMMMMMNNNNNNIITTTTTTTT this is exactly as I feared

well that confirms that the leaked list is accurate, get ready for Zod and Scorpion next

I didn't think NRS would do something this stupid, I really didnt

Yeah this game definitely needed more Batman characters. Sooo is that supposed leaked DLC characters list true then? Hype for Scorpion then hahahaha.....

Ukh, was hoping for Cassandra Cain. Expectations were too high I guess to expect anyone other than Barbara.

Why? Power Girl won. Why? I definitely have no reason to get the season pass now

CrimsonMoonMist said on May 2, 2013 at 3:11 p.m.

So it's Barbara after all, sigh...
You know, I would actually have been okay with another Batbrand character if it turned out to be Cassandra Cain since she's grossly underrepresented outside of comics, Babs, I really don't care for.

If she's as different as Nightwing to Batman then I ain't even mad.

SteveRod92 said on May 2, 2013 at 3:12 p.m.

I'm guessing they'll save Martian Manhunter and more popular requested characters for a sequel of the game. Sounds better to me in my opinion. So Zod and Scorpion is pretty much confirmed also now.

Wow seriously? I'm all for NRS supporting the game and stuff, but their choices for DLC are ****ing terrible. Who gives a flying **** about Female Batman or Villainous Superman? Time to twitter bomb NRS.

#21
NyuBomber said on May 2, 2013 at 3:16 p.m.

Oh come on. Requests out the wazoo for the likes of Martian Manhunter or Zatana or Swamp Thing or any other interesting, non-Batman-related character, and not only is it another Batman character, it's another non-powered martial arts + gadgets user?

Guess that means Scorpion and Zod are true too. Wasted opportunities everywhere. At least I know I can just stop at Lobo at not bother witht the Season Pass.

#22
Redblaze27 said on May 2, 2013 at 3:18 p.m.

I can't see what she'd add to the game other than a wasted roster slot.

RandomJohn said on May 2, 2013 at 3:20 p.m.

Batgirl? What's next? Robin? Supergirl? What can the devs do to make her different than Batman? I don't see her being a different character with different strategies. I think Darkseid should be included.

#26
CharlieKenSon said on May 2, 2013 at 3:21 p.m.

No...... Please no.... I think i need glasses... Can someone read that title to me again? Guess we were at the top, and we can only go down hill from here... I'm really disappointed. Nothing left to say.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOW................

I am so not happy about this, y'know if we needed ANOTHER batman character, Red hood definitely deserved the spot more. But of course you can't have all boys, gotta throw some crappy girl character in there.

#31
NyuBomber said on May 2, 2013 at 3:23 p.m.

@26 They could easily give her a different martial arts style and array of gadgets to make her different from Nightwing and Batman. She may even be fun to play.

That doesn't change the fact that it's an uninteresting choice on principal.

#32
16BitAndUp said on May 2, 2013 at 3:23 p.m.

I love how everyone assumes she'll play JUST like Batman. Since it's Barbara Gordon it wouldn't surprise me if she was a hybrid grappler. Last I recall she was very proficient in judo in particular.

#33
SnakeX said on May 2, 2013 at 3:24 p.m.

I don't understand this choice at all. Was there a demand for Batgirl? Is she even a prominent character that DC wants to push? Of all the female options, why her?

Very disappointing. Also more or less confirms the rumored list. Enjoy Scorpion in your DC game. :|

I'm thinking the images are either fake or maybe a new skin (and voice) for Batman. Even the way they stand in the character portrait is the same.

TrapcomLovesKayo said on May 2, 2013 at 3:33 p.m.

F#ck it give me Batgirl, but give me her in the wheelchair so I can go all professor X on mother f#ckers faces.

JN00b312 said on May 2, 2013 at 3:33 p.m.

It's real.... I tried to download it, but it didn't work T.T I really hope the rumored list isn't true. I don't want to see Scorpion in DC, I mean just look at what happen last time he was in DC...

#43
Snake_Eyes said on May 2, 2013 at 3:33 p.m.

never again will I buy a season pass without knowing who the characters are, this was super lame of NRS to pull a stunt like this, this is worse false advertising then aliens: colonial marines lol

#44
BestAlgorithm said on May 2, 2013 at 3:33 p.m.

@madviolence

I hope you're right. I hope this is a red herring of some sort. The only character I TRULY wanted was Peej. I love that Aquaman is in... but he was far from my first choice

Beanybomber said on May 2, 2013 at 3:36 p.m.

3 things. 1 i am annoyed at batgirl for three reasons. 1 she lost to power girl there go she should be in after her. 2 its a bat man character ( that we have many of) should have been red hood. 3 the costume choice is the worst, should have chose her black suit with the full mask covering the mouth. 2nd thing, zod could have been a superman alt, but as long as he says KNEEL BEFORE ZOD! like in the movie I'm fine. 3rd thing, scorpion was a good choice as to show people who want MK vs. SF how scorpion plays in a more street fighter like game without fatalities.

#48
TrapcomLovesKayo said on May 2, 2013 at 3:38 p.m.

I love batgirl but telling by that pic her character design looks like sh*t

#49
WarioFTW said on May 2, 2013 at 3:40 p.m.

I'm 100% ok with Batgirl. Yeah I said it. I LIKE BATMAN. I like the characters! If this was was Injustice: Batman and friends I'D LOVE IT EVEN MORE. What bothers me is that chose batgirl over so many other characters. As much as I love Barbra batgirl I think there were so many other deserving spots. This doesn't mean its the end of the world. No, I like this ALOT in fact. But what is the end of the world is if Scorpion is in the game. Thats lazy, and very unoriginal. People predicted that from day one and it sucks.
BTW why do people so desperately want power girl? oh yeah BOOOOOOOOOOOOOBIEEEEEEEEEES. seriously I'm glad power girl isn't in the game. And I'm happy that batgirl will be in along with Zod. I'm no way happy that scorpion is in the game. now that really sucks...

@49 different batgirl your thinking of Cassandra Cain learn your comic history

#51
Fightingfan69 said on May 2, 2013 at 3:40 p.m.

As long as she plays different;y than Batman I'd be ok with it. Other than that, I don't she was a first choice by fans. I recall NRS or Boon doing a poll for Batgirl, Powergirl, and starfire. What happened to those results? Didn't Powergirl win that poll?

Regardless I would think they'd be smart and make them play differently than a clone version of Batman and Superman.

roknin said on May 2, 2013 at 3:43 p.m.

<--- is cool with Babs making it in

I mean, it's going to happen. Can't satisfy everyone with every pick. Might not have even been their choice to make it happen.

Still planning to give her a shot once I get my hands on the game though.

I'd have been thrilled if it was Cassandra or Stephanie, though. But There was no way they were getting in over Barbara, considering DC is currently in the process of making sure we all forget they ever existed. But that's a whine for another day. :-(

#57
16BitAndUp said on May 2, 2013 at 3:46 p.m.

Powergirl should be in due to the poll but honestly she has a waaay higher chance of being a Superman clone than Batgirl to Batman. We don't even know how she plays and people are throwing fits. Rofl

@WarioFTW

It is amazing how fast people turn on a company the moment they add stuff that people don't want.
I never got that, a company adds additional content and continues to support their game that people have been openly supporting, and then 1 character people dislike gets announced and people get their pitchforks.

@71 Expressing displeasure with a company's choices =! turning on them, it means expressing displeasure with a company's choices.

I am thoroughly enjoying Injustice and will keep playing. I'll also purchase Lobo.

I just won't have anything to look forward to, DLC character-wise, for the next...3 releases. Maybe they have stuff up their sleeves past that. I hope they do. Would suck to be left with Another Bat-Family Character, Evil Kryptonian Who Is In The Same Powerset as Superman (Note that we already have Evil Superman, too), and a Mortal Kombat character.

#83
Peas4Lunch said on May 2, 2013 at 4:09 p.m.

I wanted Red Hood if we got another batman character, but i guess batgirl will do. I already bought the season pass in good faith so i'm keeping my fingers crossed. I pray to god they don't put scorpion in.

Man..out of all the dlc characters another batman character would have been better off calling it Batman: Arkham Fighters or something HOPEFULLY they dont add an mk character if that is true then I'am done haha sorry just don't like mk lol

#89
FlashAndBlood said on May 2, 2013 at 4:19 p.m.

LMAO!

Well I can't say I saw this coming. The only thing cool about Batgirl is the possibilty of a Batwoman Skin...and I'm all for some Batwoman.

Along with Batgirl, Zod, and Scorpion are probably the most uninspired DLC picks you can make. I never thought Martian and Lobo were worth the character space neither.

(good) Animal Man, Firestorm, Swamps, (Evil) Atrocitius, Larfleeze, hell even another batman villain like Talon would've set this game off.

they releasing 100 DLC skins supposedly, I'm more excited about those.

#90
chosenst said on May 2, 2013 at 4:20 p.m.

Look, you can call people whiners or complainers and say they're bitching but the bottom line is people spent $65 dollars on this game when it dropped. If you add in the season pass, then you're looking at $80 dollars. The only thing that most people want, is variation. Adding a Batman character and a Superman character is the opposite of that. Open your mind and try to see it from their perspective.

Oh and Scorpion? Why would anyone expect a DC character to be DLC for a DC fighting game? Just like every other fighting game that has DLC characters.. they add people that have nothing to do with the franchise and have no place in the game.. oh wait.

Pharaoh_Amaranth said on May 2, 2013 at 4:33 p.m.

I can't even lie, I'm HEATED about this. Why waste ANOTHER good slot on a Bat-family character? Some of the others at least made sense for the story...but come on! BATGIRL!? So there is no hope for someone like MM anymore? Was he NOT requested enough?

Welp. Now, all we can do is wait for General Zod and Scorpion. smh

#96
Jalenp69 said on May 2, 2013 at 4:35 p.m.

For the argument that there are too many Batman characters in what's supposed to be a DC fighting game, I agree. Batman characters take up nearly a 3rd of the cast. Adding another one over the mass of characters they could use is really stupid regarding fan requests.

For the argument that she will be a Bat clone. Hey, remember what happened with She-Hulk in Marvel 3? Went from being another Hulk to one of the most popular characters in vanilla. Then dumped in Ultimate, lol.

I love Barbara Gordon thanks to Gail Simone's take on Batgirl since the new 52, so I'm OK with this. I'd have liked a more interesting characters GAMEPLAY wise, but I might be talking too soon and maybe Netherrealm will surprise us.
Anyways, if the full DLC character list is actually true, then Batgirl is the only character I'll buy.
