I thought Batman's girlfriend/beard was supposed to be Catwoman.
She really always has been. Back when DC reintroduced their Golden Age stuff as a separate continuity from the then current Silver Age, the main way they differentiated Golden Age Batman from Silver Age Batman was by having the former marry his Catwoman and have a daughter who would become the OG Huntress.

Although they're not related, they probably would have been the same interchangeable wokeshit.
They're strong independent woman in a modern movie production. They're effectively the same character, and that's even before factoring their borrowed bat motif.

Well, they kind of retired the Catwoman character around the time Fredric Wertham was accusing Batman and Robin of being gay because he also targeted her. He basically said that there's no attractive women in Batman comics, the only woman regularly in them is Catwoman, who is vicious and uses a whip (Wertham was very obsessed with Wonder Woman being an allegory for bondage, which she actually was so that's a case of broken clocks) and she tries to get with Batman but she can never get past DICK. Words to that effect.

So they stopped using her and brought in Batwoman who was a nice girl, so DC could say 'See kids, Batman isn't gay. Look, he has a girlfriend'.

Thing you have to understand is that a lot of the characters we associate with Batman (The Joker, Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, etc) hadn't appeared in the comics for YEARS until the Adam West show came along and made them popular again, so the comics pretty much had to bring them back.

Even Alfred was DEAD until the TV show guys demanded the character be revived.

A good Batman movie or a Batman adjacent movie is not hard to make.
Fucking Matt Reeves basically just made an old school film noir and it plays pretty well.
