WATCH: Batman Hush gets first trailer and it looks great… UPDATED Released date and full cast added

May 14th, 2019 by Marc Comments

The trailer has arrived for DC Animation’s adaptation of the classic Batman tale Hush.

The story sees a new criminal come to Gotham who knows all of Batman’s moves and uses all his enemies  – and friends – against him.

The story is a create piece of work but to me it’s a copy of the far-superior Long Halloween story which is getting its own animated adaptation in the near future.

In Hush Jason O’Mara is reprising his role as Batman/Bruce Wayne alongside Sean Maher as Nightwing, and Stuart Allan as Damian Wayne. Damian Wayne. Jerry O’Connell, Rebecca Romijn, and Rainn Wilson are also reprising their respective roles as Superman, Lois Lane, and Lex Luthor.

Peyton List is playing both Batgirl and Poison Ivy, and Bruce Thomas is set as Commissioner Gordon. Several of Batman’s greatest enemies appear in the film, including the Joker (Jason Spisak), Riddler (Geoffrey Arend), Bane (Adam Gifford), and Lady Shiva (Dachie Alessio). Fortunately, Batman still has Alfred (James Garrett) by his side.

Hush will be available for download on July 20th and the Blu-ray and 4K UHD will hit store shelves on August 13th.

It stars:

  • Batman – Jason O’Mara
  • Batgirl – Peyton List (Bunk’d, Jessie)

  • Superman – Jerry O’Connell
  • Lois Lane – Rebecca Romijn
  • Lex Luthor – Rainn Wilson

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
