An adaptation of the seminal DC classic tale, Batman: Hush centers on a shadowy new villain known only as Hush, who uses Gotham’s Rogues Gallery to destroy Batman’s crime-fighting career, as well as Bruce Wayne’s personal life – which has already been complicated by a relationship with Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman.

Director Justin Copeland (Reign of the Supermen) helms Batman: Hush from a script by Ernie Altbacker (Teen Titans: The Judas Contract).

Batman: Hush has long been on the fans’ priority list of essential Batman stories, and we have worked closely with Warner Bros.

Wait, isn’t this one of those stories where Batman beats up Superman? Or is it one of those where Superman gets mind-controlled and turns evil? Oh right, it’s both.

I actually loved the artwork in ‘Hush’, and thought the overarching story was pretty good, but seriously, the whole “Batman and Superman fight” thing is far beyond a cliche now and really does not need to be shown again in any format for a long, long time. If ever.

Technically, Batman has never beaten Superman in canon, at least, not in a physical manner. 😉

May 17, 2019 1:43 pm

Yes it is. Ever since Watchmen and DKR became what often seems like the sacred style guides of modern DC comics then not only must Superman and Batman fight because it was kewl in DKR, but of course Batman should, must, and always be able to either beat Superman or at the very least leave the battle still being the coolest guy in the room at all times. Even with that I was still a bit surprised at the time Loeb had that in there but I bet Jim Lee really wanted to draw that and Loeb likes to accommodate… Read more »

It doesn’t bother me as much when it’s a Batman-centric story. Yes it’s annoying, but I find it more annoying when Batman shows up in a Superman story and gets the better of him. He shouldn’t really be showing up in Superman stories anyway unless it’s as Bruce being a friend. My favorite animated movie with them both will always be Public Enemies. Everything about the team up in that was what it should be and I wish they had used it as a blue print for BvS instead of the freakin DArk knight returns. I feel like it’s only… Read more »

Sunde…….Agree with you regarding Public Enemies. They keep trying to twist these characters and put them into environments that are totally contradictory to their respective roles in general. Tired of seeing that.

Let’s hope this Comic to Video adaptation is better than “The Killing Joke”. 😀

YOU are 100% correct. KJ was the worst I’ve ever seen. Border-lined on sickening.

Let’s see….another Batman story where Superman gets beaten up by Batman. I’ll pass on this just like I’ve passed up so many other Batman-animated films. DC seems to love catering to this era of Batman-worship from Batman fans. It’s become really annoying at this point. I’m just curious as to why it’s always “Batman vs Superman”??? Why is it never “Batman vs Aquaman” OR “Batman vs Wonder Woman”?? Why doesn’t “HUSH” have Poison Ivy control Aquaman or Wonder Woman. Oh, wait….I think I figured out the answer to that question. Basically, Aquaman and Wonder Woman have no weaknesses for Batman… Read more »

“..why it’s always “Batman vs Superman”??? Why is it never “Batman vs Aquaman” OR “Batman vs Wonder Woman”??”

Because there is no greater over-compensation for Batman being a mortal hero among super powered ones than there is for him to be able to beat Superman. Also edgelords love the idea of the brooding “badass” beating up the goody two-shoes because god forbid a hero be a functioning good person instead of a bonebreaker or a constant f**k up.

This looks pretty good! I like them better when they have a more serious tone without adding controversial nonsense and making them out of character. And I didn’t see from that that Batman was besting Superman. Although like a lot of you I still don’t want to see him in mind control environments. Done too many times.

May 18, 2019 1:59 pm

Speaking if Batman…you all see the new direction of who’s supposedly playing the role in next Batman movie? Patterson from the Twilight series! I’m totally on the fence with that choice. Let’s all prey to god they don’t bring Schumaker out of retirement to direct it.

He’s really gotten better over the years. He was really good in the movie ‘good time’. I like that they’re thinking a little outside of the box with this choice. I think Reeves is a solid enough director that he’ll get a good performance out of Pattinson. Plus he kind of looks like the younger version of Afflecks Bruce Wayne, so if they want they can still keep it in continuity. I’ve learned to take the wait and see approach now with castings. I’ve been blown away by some (Affleck, ledger) and let down by others, (Eisenberg). So I’ll give… Read more »

Isn’t this the one where Batman basically spends the fight saying he’d be screwed if Superman wasn’t fighting the mind control, and it’s broken by Catwoman throwing Lois off a building?

If that’s the case, I’m fine with it.

For me, the larger thing is…..

Why the heck does Batman have trunks and not Superman? Wow, DC…
(and yes, I know this is the “Post-DoS” animated suit, but still..)

Correct, Batman spent most of the fight trying not to be killed. They’ll get the trunks right, eventually.

Yup and he has the line ‘deep down, Clark is a good person… deep down I am not’ As reason for knowing he won’t get killed by him.

Just a side comment….those that haven’t yet seen The Fatal Five won’t be disappointed. Pretty darn good for once. Kind of a combo between the old and new JL.
