Last night at a San Diego Comic-Con panel after the world premiere of The Death of Superman, Warner Bros. announced the animated movies that would be coming in 2019.
Reign of the Supermen , Justice League vs. The Fatal Five and an original Wonder Woman movie titled Wonder Woman: Bloodlines are on the slate, but the biggest announcement was for Batman: Hush.
The film will adapt Jeph Loeb and Jim Lee’s mega-popular 13-issue run that featured a who’s who of popular Batman villains and allies like Killer Croc, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Superman, Ra’s al Ghul, and the Joker, but also was the introduction to its eponymous villain—the bandage-faced Hush.
More info on Hush from DC themselves here:
“In late 2002, acclaimed writer Jeph Loeb and a talented artist known for his work at Marvel, Image and WildStorm named Jim Lee debuted a 12-part Batman storyline in the pages of BATMAN #608.
The story’s title was Hush and the simple name belied a surprisingly complex story that would feature much of the Dark Knight’s popular rogues’ gallery, hint at the eventual return of the once dead Jason Todd, introduce Bruce Wayne’s childhood friend Tommy Elliot and bring the romantic undertones of Batman’s relationship with Catwoman to the forefront for the first time.”
Hush will be released in 2019.
