From new films to adorable interviews, 2022 was a big year for Dylan! So, without further ado, here are 21 Dylan moments that made us fall even more in love this year:

1. First, when he kicked off 2022 in the most ~Dylan~ way possible:

2. When he (correctly) roasted Morbius before it even came out:

I’ve heard this is super good, so they keep having to push it back because we aren’t able to handle it yet, because it’s that good, that we need more time to evolve as a species to be better prepared to handle a movie this good https://t.co/fYfamkNQrX
