At the recent DC FanDome event, Warner Bros. dropped the first official teaser trailer for Matt Reeves' The Batman, starring Robert Pattinson as the Dark Knight. The teaser offers us a glimpse into the pretty spot-on tone and atmosphere of the upcoming film, which is certainly going for something a bit darker in tone to previous films. As many may have guessed, The Riddler takes center stage as the central villain of the movie, which is excellent for fans who were looking for a more serious take on the character than Jim Carrey.

The trailer for The Batman starts off in a gritty crime scene investigation, which seems like The Riddler's doing. Batman arrives, and we get a first glimpse of his full costume. Initially, many were hesitant about its design, but seeing it in motion and context, it actually fits well with the grim, almost grungy style of this universe. The trailer also hints at Batman/Bruce Wayne being a bit more of a damaged character than we're used to seeing, which is refreshing considering the main protagonist of this DC property dresses like a bat and beats criminals to a pulp with his bare fists. There's gonna be some psychological damage there, and it seems like the film may actually explore that aspect of the character.
