CW's Batwoman series will feature Tommy Elliot/Hush, one of Batman's most dangerous foes.
"We're trying to find a different angle into these characters... so we're introducing the character of Tommy Elliot, who becomes the villain Hush," showrunner Caroline Dries revealed at Comic-Con International in San Diego during the Batwoman panel. She also revealed the show will explore the villain's origins before he takes on the mantle of Hush.
First introduced in 2003's Batman #609, Hush was created by Jeph Loeb and Jim Lee. The villain was a childhood friend of Bruce Wayne, though in many ways serves as his foil. At a young age, the future villain attempted to kill his parents by cutting the brake line of their car, though his mother survived. He was eventually committed to a psychiatric ward, only to later return and attempt revenge against Bruce. Batman: Hush, in which he appeared, is often considered one of the Dark Knight's greatest stories.
Written by Caroline Dries and developed by Bertlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, Batwoman stars Ruby Rose, Rachel Skarsten, Meagan Tandy, Camrus Johnson, Dougray Scott, Elizabeth Anweis and Nicole Kang. The series will premiere on Sunday, Oct. 6 and air on Sundays at 8 pm ET/PT.
