Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill Just Teased Two New Batman Films


Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill have been lending their voices to animated Batman movies for decades, now, and that’s not ending anytime soon. Despite low critical ratings for this year’s The Killing Joke, which even got a theatrical release, Warner Bros. apparently wants to keep both actors working on new animated films. And the actors themselves teased what at least two of these new projects could be.

At Canada’s 2016 Fan Expo, Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill were asked if The Killing Joke would be their last time voicing Batman and the Joker. Both were quick to say that they will indeed do more films, but not without having a little fun with the audience.

Conroy turned to Hamill and asked, “What do you think about doing ‘Hush?'”

And Hamill responded with yet another question, “What do you think about doing ‘A Death in the Family?’

As expected, the crowd went wild. And though Warner Bros. has not officially confirmed these teases, it would be very odd for Conroy and Hamill to call out two famous Batman storylines by name unless they were truly happening. Otherwise, Hamill would certainly be living up to his comic-book counterpart’s name.

The Killing Joke is available now on DVD, On-Demand, and Blu-Ray.

I write and I know things.

    As long as it bruce timm and company arent invoolved. I need a new animation style for these films

    • SAMURAI36

      I actually agree with this. I think the “Timm” style needs to be retired.

      • Matches Malone

        Can’t believe I am joining this chorus but I was totally alienated by the additions to “The Killing Joke” and feel it shows that the genre may have evolved past what Timm can bring to the table. His once masterful storytelling seems to have been replaced with cheap infusions of gratuitous violence and misplaced sexuality.

        I have to agree that perhaps Hush and Death in the Family could be better served by a new creative direction.

          Killing Joke was a debacle, at least everything before the actual KJ portion. Maybe he needs Paul Dini’s guiding hand?

          • SAMURAI36

            That was actually Brian Azz. But ironically enough, that was the part I enjoyed more than KJ itself.

        • SAMURAI36

          Don’t get me wrong; I didn’t mind the violence and sexuality. It’s just that the animation didn’t wow me. Not to mention, KJ isn’t one of my fave stories to begin with. It was just okay, but just like TDKR animated videos, I’d be surprised if I dusted them off and watched them again anytime soon.

      With all respect to Timm, he hasn’t done anything great since the 90s. He fell out of my good graces with the god-awful Superman: Doomsday, and hasn’t done anything to bolster my fandom since.

  • Jake Bucsko

    Hush is a great idea, makes total sense. Would be best as a two parter, really, given all the characters and situations from the comic. Makes sense they’d edit it down, but it’s a solid pick.

    Death in the Family I don’t get at all. The only relevant part of the story, Joker killing Jason Todd, was already covered, brilliantly, in Under the Red Hood, still the best animated film of this run IMO. Hopefully this one isn’t true because it’s redundant and lazy.

    And I guess we can all give up hope of WB ever making an animated film without Batman ever again. If both these are true, that’ll be 15 in a row.

    • Maximillian Pegasus

      15 in a row thing is actually true?

      • Jake Bucsko

        Flashpoint Paradox through Killing Joke is 10. Justice League Dark is 11, I’m assuming he will be a part of Judas Contract, and then Batman/Harley Quinn would be 13. Those are officially announced.

        So if Hush and Death in the Family turn out to be true and those are the next two, that’s 15. Superman Unbound was the last Batman-less entry, and Superman vs the Elite before that. You have to go all the way back to that Green Lantern anthology film 5 years ago to find the last one without either of the Dynamic Duo.

    • Matches Malone

      I agree in both regards. Death in the Family is indeed a pretty poor choice based on how well the key parts and themes were showcased in Under the Red Hood.

  • Maximillian Pegasus

    It would be funnier if one of them was like:
    “We can’t talk about upcoming movies that weren’t revealed yet, so we need to be “Hush” about it”
    and then the other says:
    “Someone in the family could die if we say anything that we weren’t supposed to”.

    Being a Bane fan…I vote for Knightfall. It happened earlier than Hush. It deserves the treatment.
