The trailer for anticipated DC flick The Batman was released over the weekend and some fans have taken no time in decoding one element from the mysterious teaser.
It’s the first proper, brilliant glimpse of Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader in the Matt Reeves-directed film, however, one moment has got the fandom flexing their brains good and hard.
In the opening moments, we’re presented with our first clue from The Riddler (played by Paul Dano), in which he’s teasing our Batman, in classic Riddler style.
Left at the scene of a crime, one card, addressed to The Batman, has a message that reads: ‘What does a liar do when he’s dead?’
However, the real juice is the 11 mysterious characters that follow on and, while we’re more the kind that will just wait for the riddle to be solved for us when the film comes out next year, some cannot sit still that long.
If you want to give it a go and try to work it out for yourself, do not scroll any further. But if you need to know (and we suspect you do) keep going.
At over two minutes long, and soundtracked by Nirvana’s Something In The Way, it reveals what direction R-Patz will be taking in his first stint as Bruce Wayne.
Director Matt Reeves explained that The Batman will not be an origin film but will begin in Year Two of the character’s story.
This is when Catwoman (Zoe Kravitz), the Riddler and the Penguin (Colin Farrell) are still in their early stages of development. It’s also the era when Batman begins to uncover the corruption within Gotham City and how it links back to the wealthy Wayne family, Variety reports.
And we cannot wait.
The Batman is scheduled for release in 2021.
