For those who are unfamiliar with Hush, the character premiered in the early ’00s as a new Batman antagonist, and he definitely left a mark. A childhood friend of Bruce Wayne (Robert Pattinson), Tommy Elliot, a.k.a Hush, changes up the standard formula by instead wanting revenge on Bruce Wayne rather than Batman. The character is a former surgeon who has the skill to perform near-impossible surgical operations, and he generally hides his face under medical bandages. Hush also wields two pistols and has no qualms whatsoever about using them or his trusty scalpel to murder anyone who gets in the way of his plans.
Still, what makes the prospect of Hush appearing in “The Batman 2” seem more plausible than other rumors is that the character is closely connected to The Riddler (Paul Dano). In fact, it turns out that at the end of “Batman: Hush,” The Riddler had been pulling the strings of Hush’s plan from the shadows all along.
Furthermore, when you consider The Riddler’s own grudge against Bruce Wayne in “The Batman,” the pieces definitely start to line up for this rumor to hold some water.
