    Default Batman: Hush is Getting an Animated Movie

    https://www.dccomics.com/blog/2018/0...animated-movie

    The third movie for 2019, Batman: Hush will release in summer, and will follow the two-part Death of Superman/Reign of the Supermen as the latest animated movie based on an acclaimed DC comic storyline. While this year’s Batman: Gotham by Gaslight was arguably the last Batman-centered DC Universe Movie, it’s an “Elseworlds” tale featuring a Victorian Era Dark Knight. Hush will find the series returning to the present day and set in a much more familiar Gotham City. The comic storyline featured popular Bat baddies like Poison Ivy, Ra’s al Ghul and the Joker, but it’s also well known for introducing the villain it’s named after—the bandage-faced Hush. While a child version of the character has made a couple of appearances on Gotham and Hush has appeared in video games like the Arkham and LEGO Batman titles, he’s never before appeared in a DC Universe Movie.

    which makes it a perfect story for DC to fund

    As long as it's not apart of the current animated universe and has minimal to no Harley I will be ecstatic for this.

    You know very well it has a 99.9% chance of being in the current animated universe. Sure they always do one movie a year outside that universe, but next year's will probably be the Wonder Woman title (best guess since Bloodlines isn't the title of a WW story best I know).

    Oh I know and it probably is which will suck. None of the current voice cast feels like their characters and the universe feels so soulless.

    I think there's actually a good chance this will end up beign standalone, if only because I know Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill have expressed interest in a Hush adaption and I doubt all 4 films next year are going to be in-continuity.

    O'Mara and Maher have grown on me as Bruce and Dick. Stuart Allan has literally grown as Robin .

    I also though Yvonne Strahovski was great as Batwoman. Both of Alfred's VA's were solid too (and had voiced him before to boot) .

    The nuDCAU has had movies with names that don't match the storylines they use. See Batman vs. Robin or Batman: Bad Blood

    I'd rather buy "Hush" than "Death of Superman"--too sad for me.

    By putting Tim Drake in it.

    True. But I still feel like this'll be in the Nu52-DCAU.

    Hush is one of the earliest Batman comic stories I read, so I'm hugely excited that its finally getting an adaptation. Though I'd always hoped it would serve as the basis for a live-action film.

    As far as the continuity goes...well, there's no real reason why it can't be in the 'New 52' canon, but there would definitely have to be a few changes in that case. We'd have Damian instead of Tim, and I'm not sure whether Talia would be involved or not (doesn't she die at the end of 'Batman: Bad Blood'?) But some changes would have to be made in any case, to compress the story into 75 minutes, if nothing else.

    Personally though, I'd love to see it as a standalone, with Conroy back as Batman, and with a look and feel that matches the original artwork.

    I think plot wise the biggest difficulty is what to do with Jasons and Harold.
    Harold as afaik never appeared out of comics and is therefore nor know by the general audience and Jason does afaik not exist in the new animated continuity.

    As an adaptation it will see changes regardless of continuity. Somethings will be trimmed out altogether for being non essential while things like fights will be expanded more for the entertainment factor. Jason's role is essential so he will be there regardless of continuity but Harold is not essential, neither is Riddler to be frank.
