Of course, the only response from Warner Bros. was to just go ahead and release the whole official thing as part of the virtual DC FanDome, which luckily for Robert Pattinson and Zoë Kravitz stans allowed them to rejoice and breathe a sigh of relief.
Just in case you couldn’t tell that Pattinson’s Batman is going to be a little bit more emo than all the rest, the trailer was set to the tune of Nirvana’s "Something in the Way" and near the end, after removing his mask, he reveals some smudged eyeliner on his face.
This iteration of the caped crusader comes from the mind of Matt Reeves, and has been characterized as exceptionally gritty (but then again, isn’t pretty much every Batman, with the exception of Tim Burton’s vision and William Dozier’s campy 1960s TV show supposed to be gritty? ).

Is Zoë Kravitz’s Catwoman Going to Get a Costume Upgrade in The Batman?
And before the film’s production in the United Kingtom was paused due to coronavirus concerns, a rendering of Selina Kyle’s catsuit was circulated via Twitter, revealing the to-be-expected pointed ears and some red goggles as part of the look.
But she will likely get a costume upgrade at some point in the film—or at least that appears to be the case according to some images of Kravitz as the iconic antiheroine.
There was also a captured clip of Catwoman and Batman riding on motorcycles that was shared, so at least we know she will be well-equipped with a leather look for some key scenes in the film.
LOS ANGELES, CA – SEPTEMBER 17: Actress Zoe Kravitz attends the 69th annual Primetime Emmy Awards at Microsoft Theater on September 17, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.
Back in March, Kravitz praised the film’s costume designer Jacqueline Durran and called the costume "an evolution".
But the real talking point to concern yourself with in this trailer is the introduction of Kravitz’s Catwoman.
