Film Fantasy Friday: Batman: Hush

I'm just so het up about the various Dark Knight Rises news that I had to delve into one of my favorite Batman stories, Hush, for this week's FFF. Jeph Loeb's story is a bit messy, but the lineup of characters is great, and I think that this arc would make a fantastic movie, should Hollywood ever feel the need to reboot the franchise yet again (or give me a job. Whichever comes first). Hang onto your cowl, 'cause this one is kind of a long one.

Jason Todd: played by Ben Foster, Jason is the psychopathic ex-Robin who's acting pretty lively for a dead man.

Dick Grayson: played by Matt Bomer, Dick has grown out of the short pants and into Nightwing, helping his mentor Batman in the fight against Gotham's united army of supervillains.

Harley Quinn: played by Kristen Bell, Harley is under the thumb of Hush and the Riddler. Not that she minds shaking up trouble, flirting with villains, and robbing operas.

Batman: played by Christian Bale (because in my head continuity THIS should be the final Nolan film), Batman is fighting a baffling war against most of Gotham's most notorious villains, not to mention one against someone he considers a friend.

Catwoman: played by Keira Knightley, Selina Kyle's dangerous alter ego is Gotham's most famous burglar--as well as the love interest of the Caped Crusader.

Thomas Elliott/Hush: played by Ewan McGregor, Thomas Elliott is a surgeon and the childhood friend of Bruce Wayne...who harbors a dangerous grudge.

Poison Ivy: played by Rachel-Hurd Wood (even in my head I require actor continuity within a franchise's movies), Poison Ivy is just one of Gotham's supervillains working with the Riddler and Hush against Batman.

The Riddler: played by Sam Rockwell, The Riddler joins with Thomas Elliott to take down Bruce Wayne and Batman.

Tim Drake: played by Skandar Keynes, Tim is the current Robin. He is kidnapped by a costumed figure who seems to be the late Jason Todd.

Alfred Pennyworth: played by Jude Law, Alfred is Bruce Wayne's long-suffering and completely badass butler.

And that's how Diana casts it! All images pulled from Google and Wikipedia.
