Following Batman: The Killing Joke, the next DC animated movie will be Justice League Dark.

Now it's learned animated films for the Batman stories, "Hush" and "A Death in the Family," might be in the works which would feature the voice talents of Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy.

It's reported that both Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy teased "Hush" and "A Death in the Family" while participating at a panel at Canada’s 2016 Fan Expo.

The pair talked up possibilities of what DC animated movies to do next.

“What do you think about doing ‘Hush'?” Kevin Conroy questioned Mark Hamill, which Screen Rant notes was met with a huge response from the crowd.

Likewise, Mark Hamill asked Kevin Conroy, "What do you think about doing,'A Death in the Family?' which was met with a similar crowd response.

Batman: Hush was written by Marvel TV's Jeph Loeb with art by DC co-publisher Jim Lee back in 2002, which spanned a year for 12 issues. The story sees a mysterious character stalking and sabotaging Batman, and it includes a large cast of characters including Batman villains, the Batman family, Superman and Catwoman.

Batman: A Death in the Family was written by Thanos creator Jim Starlin back in 1988 and dealt with the death of Jason Todd. This four issue arc was the story where DC set up a telephone poll and had readers call in to vote whether Robin should die or not.
