Doing the podcast is fun and all, but let's be honest, listening to the 2 of us talk to each other can get repetitive, so we look to you, the iFanboy listeners to participate in the podcast! "How can I get in on the fun?" you may ask yourself, well here's how:

  1. The best part of Hush was Jennifer Morrison as Catwoman. The rest of the voice acting wasn’t great along with average animation and the Sergeant Rock short was a lot better than the movie. The animation could have been better in the short, but the story was really good.

    I didn’t buy how fast Batman and Catwoman fell for each other and being set in the animated film universe was a mistake. The Bruce and Andrea relationship was much better and more believable in Mask of the Phantasm where Andrea Beaumont was created for the movie.

    It was a missed opportunity and the Batman vs TMNT movie is easily the best DC animated movie this year. I wish there was a podcast for that movie and was surprised that there wasn’t one.

  2. I liked it. I haven’t read the books since it came out, so I wasn’t directly comparing it. I think maybe that was a problem for the crew. Maybe try and review it for what it is instead of what you want it to be?

    I’m pretty sure it said that Peyton List played both roles in the after movie credits btw. Seems like IMDB is wrong.

    • We spent a good amount of time discussing why it was a bad movie (particularly the second half), regardless of how close it was to the books — though I do believe that the major change to the story from the books was one reason why the movie fell apart. It dramatically lowered the stakes of the story. And if I recall correctly, I was the only one who had re-read the book for the film. I am genuinely glad you liked it, though.

      As discussed on the show, it was two different actresses both named Peyton List. It’s the first time they’ve ever been in a film together.

    • Thanks for the talk. IndieWire.com did small article to distinguish between the two Peyton Lists: https://www.indiewire.com/2016/10/peyton-list-frequency-swap-thinning-1201733445/

  3. Hey guys, minor note: The upcoming Man of Tomorrow movie isn’t an adaptation of anything, it’s going to be an original story (Source from comicbook.com: https://comicbook.com/dc/2019/07/20/superman-man-of-tomorrow-movie/).

    Also, I think you guys were thinking of the storyline simply titled “For Tomorrow” as that’s the only thing I could find online that’s written by Azzarello and penciled by Jim Lee.

  4. The iFanboy Braintrust perfectly expressed my own feelings about this animated “Hush” adaptation, it was indeed a mess. Frankly, I found Paul’s sudden discovery of the two Peyton Lists more interesting.

    Also, for the first time, I was annoyed by the rampant curse words included into the script of this one. Just took me out of it. Could that be what killed Conor’s poor blu-ray player
