Vengeance has arrived!

The first full trailer for DC Comics 'The Batman', starring Robert Pattinson, has just arrived.

The trailer debuted on Saturday during the DC FanDome virtual fan event and shows Pattinson making his mark as a crime-fighting dark knight, thus proving that he is the darkest cape crusader ever.

The trailer opens with the arrest of Riddler, and we have known the role is played by Paul Dano, yet, the character’s face is hidden throughout the trailer. Instead, it provides a more extensive look at two other central characters. First is an unrecognizable Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot, aka Penguin, and the second one being Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman.

"I'm vengeance," Batman replies.

'The Batman' will follow Bruce Wayne in the second year of his crime-fighting campaign in Gotham City.

The movie will see Pattinson approaching the caped crusader's character in an entirely different way and the actor will be backed by a supporting cast that includes Colin Farrell as The Penguin, Paul Dano as The Riddler, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Real, Barry Keoghan as Officer Stanley Merkel, and Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth.

The upcoming movie, which was written and directed by Matt Reeves, will be released in theatres on March 4, 2022.
