Following all of these years, it seems that the pivotal “Hush” plotline that Batman has been following will be receiving a sequel. A follow-up to the narrative may be closer than it has ever been before, as suggested by a unique epilogue that is featured in the Batman: Hush 20th Anniversary Special Edition with a discussion with the members of the story’s production team.
Batman: Hush is the name of a narrative that was featured in the primary Batman title. In this plotline, the Dark Knight battles his rogues’ ensemble as a criminal mastermind and plots Bruce Wayne’s demise in the shadows.
The acclaimed narrative was significant for a number of game-altering factors, including the following:
Not only it demonstrated that the Riddler had discovered Batman’s identity, but it also showed that Batman and Catwoman had ultimately taken the most significant move in their partnership and started perceiving each other sensually.
On top of that, it was the first appearance of the story’s namesake adversary, Hush, also known as Tommy Elliot, who was Bruce’s boyhood buddy and a frequent enemy of Batman.
Ever since it was first released, Batman: Hush has continued to be a perennially popular comic for DC Comics.
Even while the first narrative has been able to stand by itself for many years, it appears that there are ideas for an immediate sequel that are now being developed.
The Batman: Hush 20th Anniversary Special Edition contains a short tale titled “Prologue: The Aftermath” written by Jeph Loeb and Jim Lee. This narrative follows up where Batman’s “Hush” saga left off, and it is featured in this version.
From the last time he had a run-in with Hush, Batman has started searching the river, looking for any hints that would point him in the direction of his adversary’s whereabouts.
The Greatest Detective in the World came across a ship with a lead hull, a feature that might have effortlessly shielded Elliot from Superman’s X-ray scan had he been on board earlier.
Batman has, in fact, found Hush’s lair, but the criminal is gone for good, and all that is left around are spent bullets and stitches.
Tragically for Hush, his withdrawal has placed him squarely at the mercy of Joker and Harley Quinn, which means that his breakout might not be straightforward as he had hoped.
The Batman: Hush 2 Movie Is Almost Certain to Happen
If that isn’t sufficient to persuade enthusiasts that Batman’s encounter with Hush will receive a follow-up narrative, then perhaps comments from the story’s creative team will do the trick.
The Batman: Hush 20th Anniversary Special Edition features a discussion with Jeph Loeb and Jim Lee in which they discuss “Hush” twenty years after it was first released and provide their thoughts on the story.
Loeb says that he and Lee have frequently talked about the possibility of writing a sequel, and he urges readers to study the additional material that is included in the new version of the book.
However before Loeb may continue, Lee interrupts him with an amusing “Hushhhhh!” and interrupts him.
It appears that the question of whether or not audiences will be treated to a successor to Batman: Hush in the coming future should be rephrased as one of when, rather than if.
However, there are still many unanswered issues about the possibility of a sequel. Would it be similar to the new introduction in that it would actually happen just after the narrative that came before it?
Would the sequel be published as part of the primary Batman title or will it be available separately?
And what kind of an effect do you think this new narrative will have on the Batman subplot of the DC Universe?
This cryptic teaser has brought up a lot of concerns, and it seems that fans will need to wait patiently in order to get the answers to their queries until a prospective sequel to Batman: Hush is released.
