No full details on this character have been provided, but there’s a chance she’ll be a take on Green Arrow villain Isabel Rochev.

Now much still is not known yet about the R-rated origin story of the former British intelligence agent , but it has been confirmed that Alfred will team-up with a young Thomas Wayne to form a security company in 1960s London.
