Check out a trailer below:

Batman: Hush adapts the now classic tale from writer Jeph Loeb and artist Jim Lee from DC Comics, originally published as Batman #608-619. It’s the first appearance of the villain, Hush who uses Batman’s Rogues Gallery to destroy the Caped Crusader’s crime-fighting career along with Bruce Wayne’s personal life, not to mention his already complicated relationship with Selina Kyla, aka Catwoman.

Batman: Hush features the vocal talents of Jason O’Mara (Batman / Bruce Wayne), Jennifer Morrison (Catwoman / Selina Kyle), Jerry O’Connell (Superman), Rebecca Romijn (Lois Lane), Rainn Wilson (Lex Luthor), Vanessa Williams (Amanda Waller), Jason Spisak (Joker), Peyton List (Batgirl), Peyton List (Poison Ivy), Geoffrey Arend (Riddler), Sean Maher (Nightwing), Maury Sterling (Thomas Elliot), Bruce Thomas (Jim Gordon), Adam Gifford (Bane), Sachie Alessio (Lady Shiva), Stuart Allan (Damian Wayne), James Garrett (Alfred), Hynden Walch (Harley Quinn), Chris Cox (Scarecrow), and Tara Strong (Reporter).

The film is directed by Justin Copeland and written by Ernie AltbackerJim Krieg and Alan Burnett are co-producers and Amy McKenna is a producer.  Michael Uslan, Sam Register, and James Tucker are executive producers.

It’s interesting that Damian Wayne is in this. I’m interested to see how the story is updated to include a different take on the extended Bat Family. That’s one cool aspect of the DC Universe Movies.
