OK, so you know how everyone's been hype — yes, even you, haters — for Robert Pattinson's take on The Batman.
Well, the first trailer just dropped at DC FanDome this weekend and I'm sold.
Literally me after watching:
First off, Rob is delivering his tried-and-true emo acting, but here it works because in this version Batman is apparently a detective/vigilante, who had to deal with some rough shit growing up. (You all should know the storyline by now.)

Also, if this shot isn't a 2020 mood, IDK what is.
We also got our first look at Zoë Kravitz kicking ass as Catwoman.

Others said it's the reason they're now on board to watch The Batman:
According to the trailer, The Batman is due out in theaters...sometime next year?
In the meantime, what do you think of Colin's transformation as The Penguin? Tell me in the comments!
