Warner Bros. and DC have been making a killing with high quality animated films for years and the trailer for ‘Batman: Hush’ shows that their winning streak is here to stay! This story will bring to life the iconic 2002 tale by Jeph Loeb and Jim Lee. From the description of the film, it sounds like they’ll be staying pretty close to the source material though we know that there is always a little wiggle room for creative license.
In this tale of the Dark Knight, we’ll have Jason O’Mara returning to once again voice the world’s greatest detective. Also returning are Jennifer Morrison as Selina Kyle, Jerry O’Connell as Superman, Rebecca Romijn as Lois Lane, Rainn Wilson as Lex Luthor, Sean Maher as Nightwing, Bruce Thomas as Jim Gordon, Stuart Allen as Damian Wayne, and James Garrett as Alfred.” It isn’t just returning talent though as Maury Sterling has joined the cast as Thomas Elliot with “Geoffrey Arend as Riddler, Vanessa Williams as Amanda Waller, Jason Spisak as Joker, Adam Gifford as Bane, Dachie Alessio as Lady Shiva, Peyton List as both Batgirl and Poison Ivy, and Tara Strong as the Reporter.
The synopsis for ‘Batman: Hush’ is described as:
An adaptation of the seminal DC classic tale, Batman: Hush centers on a shadowy new villain known only as Hush, who uses Gotham’s Rogues Gallery to destroy Batman’s crime-fighting career, as well as Bruce Wayne’s personal life – which has already been complicated by a relationship with Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman.

While a theatrical release has yet to be announced, we know that Fathom Events and AMC Theaters have been bringing most of the newer animated features out for at least a one-night limited engagement. I’m sure we can expect this one to be announced soon.

For those who have read the books, I suspect it won’t go quite into detail in the aftermath that the books did as that might not fit well within the context of a stand-alone story.
