Amidst The Batman‘s successful run on the box office, here comes a hint at a possible sequel of the film. The Batman directed by Matt Reeves and starring Robert Pattinson hit the screens on the 4th of this month. And the movie has garnered a widely positive reception. The film features a certain website that is now accessible to the audience as well. The latest update on the rataalada website hints strongly at a sequel to Matt Reeves’s movie.
Seeds For A Sequel As Left By The Batman Movie
Recently released first installment of the film featured the psychotic Riddler as the main antagonist. Moreover, Penguin and Falcon played their parts as negative forces in the movie too. However, explaining here with minimal spoilers, the film’s end featured a voice that befriends Riddler while in Arkham. The voice warms up with the visibly disturbed Riddler as he plays “Riddle Me This” from around the wall separating them in the asylum’s cells.
While the movie didn’t disclose the identity or face of the voice, speculations are abuzz about the voice belonging to Joker. Moreover, Barry Keoghan as the Joker is also almost set for the part as per the rumors. Aside from all the rumors, the concluding scene of the Robert Pattinson starrer is a lead enough to expect a sequel shortly. Not to mention, Pattinson and Matt have expressed their interest in a forthcoming trilogy themselves. Furthermore, Pattinson even discussed his choices about the oncoming villains in the next parts when they’re made.
The Rataalada Website Teases A Sequel’s Detail
The rataalada website debuted for the viewers to visit in December last year. The website was a clever marketing tool from the film’s team as they teased its introduction through a riddle. Now that the film has been released, it’s unveiled that the website is a working part of Batman’s and Riddler’s interactions.
Recently, the site’s latest update introduced the users to Riddler’s new message for them. The URL opens to his message which reads, “Let’s see if you’re willing to discover more. While you unmask everything that has yet to be revealed, I’m safe here. With my new friend. We will see you soon.” The message then leads the users towards a link that downloads Riddler’s files and photos featured in The Batman.
However, a second refresh leads the users to a new message which is expected to be a tease for the sequel and its villain. The second reward is a cipher which is now decoded by the fans. The cipher reads, “Gotham loves a comeback.” This message on the website and The Batman’s conclusion together hints at the Joker’s inclusion in the next installment of the expected series.
The ideas for the sequel of The Batman or its existence altogether is still under wraps for the most part. However, there are definite projects related to the film coming shortly on the screens. Individual spin-off shows based on Penguin and the Gotham PD are underway. Moreover, another series based on the infamous Arkham Asylum will debut shortly.
