Well, that's a weird title if I've ever heard one.

I wonder if it'll deal with Jason Todd or the Joker? If it were the Joker, why not just call it The Killing Joke?

Maybe it'll be an adaptation of A Death in the Family, with a second act that details the return of Jason Todd as the Red Hood?

A Red Hood film based around a Hush/Under The Hood style story? Awesome. A Batman film featuring an extensive Bat Family, one that references old stories and continuity? Awesome.

If they let Judd Winick write it? Awesome.

What's the DVD TV Pilots feature? Is that the Justice League Of America Pilot? It has an s, so perhaps its more than one pilot, like maybe the Superboy Pilot or Shazaam pilot, I'm guessing the DVD Producers ran out of material.

It seems to be the pilots for the shows that never made it passed one episode, like the Justin Hartley Aquaman show.

Earlier this week, word got out that DC's next animated PG-13 movie would be Batman: Under The Hood. It was referred to as "Under The RED Hood" but an update from Mania now has it simply titled "Under The Hood." This makes more sense considering who is writing.

Judd Winick will be writing the script. Winick also wrote the storyline that the movie is based on, Batman #635-641. That's good news for those of us that have read the story.

The story will deal with a mysterious villain known as the Red Hood apparently returning to Gotham. This was the identity that the Joker first used before falling into the vat of chemicals that transformed him into his current state. The return of the Red Hood sees him as an anti-hero and soon pushes a gang war between Black Mask and the Joker to erupt. Of course we know who is really under the Hood here.

Who the hell said this movie was going to be called "Under The Red Hood"? Now that is cleared up, yes suavestar, I don't understand either. I mean I don't know if you like that storyline or not, but I know I do, and that i don't understand why someone can't.

I assume you're being sarcastic?

Reread what suavestar wrote. He said he doesn't like Judd Winick recent run on Batman.

?

I thought Under The Hood was your favorite Batman story?

It is, and I hope this is awesome, cause that story is fucking awesome. They'll have to take out the conversation between Black Mask and Deathstroke though, which is sad as that was fucking awesome

But, Winick did the first post BFTC Batman storyline, and it was crap. Mark Bagley did bland art and Winick made Dick seem like such an idiot. He would go out of his way to be photographed and was always smiling.

Also, the Bat-Face(Two face) I was really looking forward to seeing, was done in just three panels.

Also, I thought Under the hood, was twelve issues, or atleast ten. Cause it was collected in two volumes.

Killing Joke, Hamill, pls.

Preston, he retired from being Joker after Arkham Asylum.

Yes, this would explain why he is in Arkham Asylum 2.

Has that been actually announced yet? I don't think it was entirely certain whether or not that was his voice in the new trailer.

But hey, Mark Hamill is one of the nicest and greatest guys in the world; I'm sure he'd do it if he were asked nicely enough.

I'm only going on what was said after the original AA came out.

New Batman DVD to peek out from 'Under the Red Hood'

February 9, 2010 | 6:40 pm

Plenty of of fanboys are anticipating the new Justice League DVD "Crisis on Two Earths," which premieres on Feb. 23, but that disc will also give birth to a new DC must-see home movie when the Dark Knight saga "Batman: Under the Red Hood" launches one of its first promos.

picture3bx.jpg

Written by Judd Winick and based on his 2005 Batman comics story line, it's Batman versus another vigilante, Red Hood, who doesn't mind cleaning up Gotham by leaving dead bodies in his wake. Animated guru Bruce Timm exec produces this pretty violent look into crime on the streets, and it's directed by "Superman Doomsday" co-director Brandon Vietti, with a cavalcade of stars as voice talent. It all starts with Bruce Greenwood ("Star Trek") as Batman, then continues with "Supernatural" star Jensen Ackles as Red Hood, Neil Patrick Harris ("How I Met Your Mother") as Nightwing, John DiMaggio ("Futurama") as the Joker and Jason Isaacs (the Harry Potter films) as Ra's Al Ghul.

This was one of the most popular story lines to come out of Batman in recent history. Will you watch?

EDIT: Weird, this article is also saying "Under The Red Hood".

scratch that it's the exact same info... ugh.... I am not sure about this DVD though. I guess it's the DCAU in me that wants the old voices. However I'll be optimistic about it.
