The trailer, which was strategically released right before the critically acclaimed Robert Pattinson-starrer The Batman, depicts Batman and Ace reliving their terrible pasts.

What has sent fans worldwide into a frenzy is that after the success of Robert Pattinson's The Batman, DC has managed to rope in another brilliant actor to play the caped crusader. As soon as the trailer made its way to YouTube on March 6, took to social media to express their joy with Reeves' casting.

With Keanu's mellow voice and its dramatic persona being equally recognizable, fans on Twitter lost their minds.

Many were quick to point out how Keanu in the DC League of Super-Pets almost completed the long list of many brilliant actors playing the caped crusader, including Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, and Christian Bale.

Many were so elated with this DC decision that they went into asking for a live action movie for the actor as Batman.

One fan was also quick to point out that 2022 is undoubtedly the year of the Batman as there are so many movies revolving around the superhero to be released this year.
