Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy recently attended Fan Expo 2016, in which they discussed other potential Batman animated movie ideas, and boy oh boy. They come up with two brilliant ideas.
The two actors have featured prominently in a whole host of animated batman tv shows and movies, most recently – the controversial adaptation of The Killing Joke. The story itself is one of the most iconic and polarising comic books amongst critics and fans. If that’s the limit that producers will go, we have no doubt that they wouldn’t even hesitate with the suggestions that Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy come up with. ScreenGeek reported that hen a fan asked the question about what they would like to do next, the pair had this to say:
“…both exchanged something of a sly response to each other, with Conroy turning to Hamill and saying, “What do you think about doing Hush?” After a huge cheer from the crowd, Hamill one-upped him on the question saying, “What do you think about doing A Death in the Family?”
We’ve seen something of a retelling of this story before (Under the Red Hood) but to see a completely faithful adaptation would be a treat. The other story, Hush, is one of the most characterising story arcs for Bruce Wayne considering the events that occur throughout the plot. Either way, we’d be happy to watch an adaptation of either film aslong as it’s done properly and maybe just as violent as The Killing Joke.
What do you think about the two potential animated movie ideas? We’ve already seen an adaptation of Death in the Family so something new would go down a treat. But what other famous Batman stories would you like to see adapted for an animated movie with Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter @HeroesDirect!
