One of the most iconic Batman storylines will FINALLY get the long awaited animated "DC Universe Original Movie" it deserves, as DC Entertainment formally announced in their San Diego Comic-Con panel that "Batman: Hush" - the 12 part Batman storyline written by Jeph Loeb and drawn by Jim Lee that ran from "Batman #608 to Batman #619" and was formally collected into trades and hardcovers released by DC Comics through the years. In the story, Batman faces a new and mysterious opponent, the titular "Hush", who manipulates the Dark Knight into a series of confrontations with some of his deadliest adversaries. While that is happening, he and Catwoman share a romantic spark and get closer than ever.
The animated movie is part of other upcoming DC animated films that include "Wonder Woman: Bloodlines", "The Reign of the Supermen", and "Justice League vs The Fatal Five". All of these are expected to be released in 2019 - which also happens to be the same year Batman celebrates his 80th anniversary. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

SDCC '19: The Walking Dead Season 9 Trailer released; Andrew Lincoln confirms it's his las season as Rick Grimes
Nothing lasts forever indeed, and during the San Diego Comic-Con panel for AMC's "The Walking Dead", series main cast member and Rick Grimes actor Andrew Lincoln confirmed that the upcoming ninth season would be his last playing the former Sheriff's Deputy turned zombie apocalypse survivor and leader to a new generation of humanity rebuilding from the ashes. In the TV Series, Grimes is fulfilling the wishes of his late son Carl, who was killed off last season due to the departure of actor Chandler Riggs from the show.
Now time-skipping to a point after the events of "All-Out War" - the communities of Alexandria, The Sanctuary, The Kingdom, and The Hilltop struggle to co-exist and survive under the leadership of Rick and his allies - but it's easier said than done as the SDCC' 18 trailer shows that there are inner conflicts and demons that still need to be confronted by the survivors, as well as a new threat besides the living dead.
The Walking Dead Season 9 begins this October 7 on AMC.
It's been FIVE YEARS since "The Team" thwarted the efforts of The Light and saved the world from Invasion in "Young Justice" and "Young Justice: Invasion", and now fans are going to get the resolution and continuation they deserve as DC Entertainment will be bringing Season 3 to their upcoming "DC Universe" streaming service with "Young Justice: Outsiders"!
Following their San Diego Comic-Con 2018 panel, the developers of the series have released their first look at the new season - which immediately picks up after the conclusion of "Invasion" where Wally West makes the ultimate sacrifice and how life continues on for some... And then there's Darkseid.
Young Justice: Outsiders will consist of 26 episodes and air on DC Universe streaming service this 2019.
