It’s been a while since we’ve got an animated Batman movie, and we need more of those gems. One field that DC have excelled in lately is the animated films, and the Batman ones have always been great to watch. The upcoming animated movie called Batman: Hush is based on comic writer Jeph Loeb and artist Jim Lee’s arc called Batman: Hush.
It is one of the most popular arcs of Batman there is, and fans have been waiting for it to get animated for a long time now. In this arc, we get to see Batman go up against a sociopath covered in bandages, determined to take him down once and for all. There are many other characters in the arc as well, and even Superman has a decent part to play in the story as it pans out. In this post, we’ll be talking about everything that we know about this movie so far. So let’s get started!
Recently, the confirmed cast for Batman: Hush emerged online, thanks to IGN, and we also have our first look at the film now. Here’s the entire cast for the movie as we know it:
Jason O’Mara as Bruce Wayne/Batman
Jennifer Morrison as Selina Kyle/Catwoman
Jerry O’Connell as Superman
Rebecca Romijn as Lois Lane
Rainn Wilson as Lex Luther
Sean Maher as Nightwing
Bruce Thomas as Jim Gordon
Stuart Allan as Damian Wayne
James Garrett as Alfred
Maury Sterling as Hush
Geoffrey Arend as Riddler
Vanessa Williams as Amanda Waller
Jason Spisak as Joker
Adam Gifford as Bane
Peyton List as Poison Ivy and Batgirl
Dachie Alessio as Lady Shiva
Tara Strong as an unnamed reporter.
As you can see that’s a decent cast, but more importantly, the image shows us Batman animated in different style, closer to what we saw in the Son of Batman. I’m very excited to watch this movie, and I hope it lives up to the expectations of the fans. Are you excited for Batman: Hush? Let me know your thoughts on it in the comments section below!

Finally, the film has released some more details to discuss, and one of those is a trailer. DC fans have been waiting for a trailer since a long time ago, because there were rumors of the film releasing in April 2019, which was not true at all. Now that we have got a trailer, you can check it out below.
The trailer is out, but no update has been announced. The trailer is not even hinting anything about the update, which is disappointing. Nonetheless, we expect that the film will release in Fall 2019, and not before that.

The film is supposed to release this month, and fans have been waiting for this day since a long time. However, we were expecting one more trailer of the film, which has not been released. Instead, DC’s YouTube handle uploaded the same trailer on 17 May 2019 which IGN released before, and you can see it above. Nonetheless, it would be interesting to see how the film does, and whether the DC fans, especially Batman fans like it or not. DC Fans have always seen the best coming, so they will not settle for anything that is not adhering to the standards. Get ready for 20 July 2019, and then we will talk about it on OtakuKart, so stay tuned.
