One of the biggest Batman stories of the modern era is coming to animation. Batman: Hush, the storyline created by Jeph Loeb and Jim Lee in 2002 and 2003, is getting the cartoon film treatment as a DC Universe Original Movie.

Hush, originally a 12-issue arc in Batman, follows the story of a new villain emerging in Batman’s life, a mysterious murderer with a face wrapped in bandages who was revealed to be — after months of mystery and fake-outs — Tommy Elliott, a childhood friend of Bruce Wayne’s.

The story is one of the most influential in the recent history of the comic, defining its era of Batman in all his dark, tragic glory, for better or worse.

Batman: Hush is one of four DCU Original animations announced at Comic-Con to release in 2019, with the others being The Reign of the Supermen, Justice League vs. The Fatal Five and Wonder Woman: Bloodlines.

Hush will be the third release in the animated slate, with no word yet on casting or creative team.


  • I have the comic and have read it so it didn’t spoil it for me…. But why the HELL would you mention the twist in the article with no spoiler warning. Especially for the bunch of people that might read this and then get to watch the animated movie with no knowledge of who the twist villain is? FOR SHAME JULIE.

    • Its mentioned in the Arkham games and eluded to in the Gotham series also, but I agree, bit crap if you want the surprise

    • Because said comic books were released in 2002. You’re delusional if you expect spoiler warnings for 16-year-old content…
