Now that The Batman made waves in cinemas around the world, you’d think the film’s promotional website would post Riddler-style cues for fans to discover – but you’d be wrong.
It looks like Paul Dano’s Edward Nashton story is far from over, according to the official Twitter account of The Batman.
“How does a man become a Riddler? the Twitter account wrote, alongside a link to the link URL that had puzzled fans with riddles in the months before the film’s release, rataalada.com.
The first riddle you will find on the site is as follows:
“The famous claim me. Others protect themselves from me. No matter how you define me, I always end with certainty.
We won’t spoil the answer for you in case you want to solve it yourself. But once you find the correct answer, you will be presented with a few more puzzles. If you solve them, the prize is the cover of what we assume is an upcoming DC comic tie-in called first year riddler.
Previously, the website provided a full .zip file that you could download containing all the evidence files confirming Edward’s plot, including his nine-page diary.
In a previous interview, director Matt Reeves divulged a little how long the Riddler worked on his shot. It turns out the character was a lowly forensic accountant who stumbled upon the paper trail confirming a bribery plot among Gotham’s elite.
Around the same time, Edward started seeing news reports of a masked vigilante – Batman – beating up criminals in dark alleys, which is actually what inspired him to put on a mask and begin to take in hand a distorted justice.
We have to admit, it actually looks like a compelling backstory worthy of a one-off graphic novel. Frankly, we’re excited to read what we assume is a prequel to the movie on every release.
The Batman is in theaters now.
