glad I wasn't the only one
I really want to see Hush in a Batman film, however, I think the storyline of Dark Victory would be perfect for a third movie. That would mean Harvey would have to come back though. And they would have to find a Robin and Catwoman...

I was kinda lookin forward to
Skyline after I saw the first teaser, but now that there are a number of actual trailers, it looks less than promising.
