A new animated film based on one of the most popular Batman stories of all time, Batman: Hush, is set to premiere in Summer 2019.
Now, a new trailer for the animated film has debuted and it features some of Batman's most popular baddies, including Poison Ivy, The Joker, Harley Quinn and more. There are also appearances by Superman, Catwoman and Nightwing.
The comic book source material for Batman: Hush was written by Jeph Loeb, penciled by Jim Lee, inked by Scott Williams and colored by Alex Sinclair. The story featured the never-before-seen eponymous villain Hush, who utilized Gotham villains in an effort to destroy Batman's crime-fighting career. Hush is viewed favorably by many comic book fans, largely because of its inclusion of Gotham's extensive Rogues Gallery and the Batman/Catwoman romantic subplot.
Batman: Hush ran from Batman issues #608 through #619, with the first issue releasing in December 2002. The story concluded in September 2003.
Directed by Justin Copeland, Batman: Hush stars Jason O'Mara, Jennifer Morrison, Jerry O'Connell, Rebecca Romijn, Rainn Wilson, Sean Maher, Bruce Thomas, Stuart Allen, James Garrett, Maury Sterling, Geoffrey Arend, Vanessa Williams, Jason Spisak, Adam Gifford, Dachie Alessio, Peyton List and Tara Strong. The film arrives on DVD, Blu-ray and digital this summer.
