Trivia / Batman: Hush

Go To

For the comic:

  • Career Resurrection: Jim Lee was one of the creators who helped usher in independently-owned comics with Image Comics and was a popular artist during The '90s thanks to his work on X-Men. After this though, he fell into relative mediocrity with little to no notable additions to his resume. Then came Hush and his career was revived in a big way, leading to him eventually being granted the position of DC's co-publisher.

  • Executive Meddling and What Could Have Been: Allegedly, Hush was originally supposed to be a Lazarus Pit-revived Jason Todd, with Tommy Elliott being exactly what he appeared - a Red Herring Sacrificial Lamb. Editorial supposedly got cold feet at the last minute and forbade Loeb and Lee from using Jason. Although someone at DC clearly liked the original idea, but not in this specific context, given that Jason Todd was later revived as the Red Hood for Under The Red Hood.
  • Limited Special Collector's Ultimate Edition: DC’s first big return to these since those carefree days of the 90s. They went through about six reprints of the Superman-vs-Batman issue (#612) based on the cover alone.


For the animated film:

  • Meaningful Release Date: The DVD release of the movie is August 6, the same day as the birthday of Batman's voice actor, Jason O'Mara.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted in the casting: the film actually has two people named Peyton List playing different roles (Peyton List reprising her role as Poison Ivy from Gotham, and Disney star Peyton R. List playing Batgirl).
  • The Other Darrin:

  • Release Date Change: The DVD release for the movie was originally August 13, but it was then moved to August 6.
  • Role Reprise:
    • The Joker is voiced by Jason Spisak, who previously voiced him in the Lego DC Comics Super Heroes movies.
    • Inverted with Poison Ivy. According to the filmmakers commentary, Peyton List, who played her in Gotham, had actually recorded for this film first before she was cast to replace Maggie Geha in Gotham.
    • This movie has Hynden Walch voice Harley Quinn, much like how she did on The Batman.
  • Throw It In!: Harley humming a few notes of "Entry of the Gladiators" wasn't in the script, it was improvised by Hynden Walch. The writer, Ernie Altbacker, noted in the commentary that if he actually wrote out "Dah dah dah dah dah dah dah dah dah dah", he would've looked crazy.
  • What Could Have Been: In 2016, at the San Diego Comic-Con, Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill floated the idea that they could act in an Animated Adaptation of Batman: Hush. This movie, obviously, has Jason O'Mara and Jason Spisak instead.
