Announced at San Diego Comic-Con as a part of the animated Death of Superman world premiere and panel, DC Animation will next take on the famous Batman story "Hush" in 2019. 

Begun in 2002 by Jeph Loeb, the "Hush" storyline began in Issue #608 of "Batman" and went on for 12 parts. A good amount of the Dark Knight's extensive (and excellent) gallery of rogues appeared, there were hints that Jason Todd may have survived his crowbar beatdown, and the Bat's relationship to Selina Kyle (Catwoman) was put at the forefront, instead of being a tacked-on afterthought. 

Batman: Hush will adapt the story and release in the summer of 2019. We don't know as of yet which villains from the comic will appear, but Poison Ivy, Ra's al Ghul, and the Joker are all likely, and very much wanted. We'd say it's almost granted that Selina Kyle will show up as well — the only question is who will give voice to her character. The same question applies all around, actually.

There's also the appearance of the villain from whom the comic gets its name — the bandage-wrapped Hush himself. A child version of this character has appeared on Gotham, and he has shown up in some video games, but this will be the first time that Hush has appeared full-on in a DC Universe movie. 

After his fun Victorian "elseworlds" jaunt in Gotham by Gaslight, it'll be great to see the animated caped crusader back in his proper time and place, and playing out one of his biggest, craziest stories.
