At this year’s San Diego Comic Con, the next slate of DC Animated films for 2017 was released, which consists of Justice League Dark, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract and an original feature by Bruce Timm called Batman and Harley Quinn. But it sounds like more may be on the way, if Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy have any say in the matter.
So remember a few weeks ago when it looked like Rocksteady was hinting at Hush being the main villain of the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight video game? Well, it looks like we may have been a little hasty to rush to judgment on that. In a presentation by Rocksteady developer Dax Ginn that involved a demo of the game, a new foe was revealed as the source of what we can safely assume will be a lot of trouble for everyone's favorite Caped Crusader, and his name is, quite literally, Arkham Knight.
According to Rocksteady, this is an entirely new character created solely for the game -- a guy who bears a striking resemblance to Batman, but with the crucial difference of using guns. And that doesn't sound like Hush at all.
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO.
Okay. Breathe. We've got to get through this together. For those of you eagerly anticipating the next entry in Rocksteady Studios' Batman: Arkham series (yes, Rocksteady and apparently not WB Games Montreal), this week brought an interesting rumor. Over at the fan Facebook page for Hush (which itself is pretty weird since it's a new Facebook page for a story that ran in the comics 11 years ago), someone posted a picture of a decidedly video-gamey Hush a.k.a. Dr. Thomas Elliot with the news that things were "about to get more interesting next month."
If that's true (and as Arcade Sushi argues, it very well might just be a rumor), it'll be a mean feat since Hush was never interesting to begin with, but it looks like we might be on the verge of an announcement that after cameos in all three highly successful games, Hush is taking the center stage in the next installment. And, God help me, that might actually be a good idea.
With Batman and the Joker already duking it out on store shelves, Medicom is turning its Real Action Heroes attention to Jim Lee's Hush style Catwoman and Harley Quinn.
