It turns out that there’s a pretty strong Invisible Man thirst fandom in the depths of Hotel Transylvania fandom, and discovering what he looks like under the, uh, invisibility has not been a pleasant experience for them. Griffin’s human form was revealed in the trailer for Hotel Transylvania 4, which was released this week.

There’s a Change.org petition to make the Invisible Man ‘hot’ that has already gathered more than 15,000 signatures.
