"It's really cool to be the first female animated Robin," she told Super Hero Hype. "There's been so many amazing boys, but I think I can just bring something new that the fans have never experienced. So I'm really honoured to be part of such a fantastic project.

"Female empowerment really is important to me. I'm a big nerd of the books from the 15th Century and 16th Century, when the men had all the power and the women had none of it.

"So to have Robin be a girl is cool because it gives girls a chance to know that they can do everything boys can do, and even better."

Dark Knight Returns is based on Frank Miller's classic four-part DC Comics miniseries, which sees an older Bruce Wayne returning from retirement.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns - Part One will debut on Blu-ray and DVD on September 25 in the US. A UK release date is yet to be confirmed.
