The Batman post-credits scene teases a mystery for audiences to solve
Batman is back in theaters with a new cast of villains, a new case to solve, and a new post-credits scene for the post-Snyderverse era. This time, it’s up to the Caped Crusader to track down the Riddler and stop his treacherous plot as crime and corruption swirl around Gotham, led by none other than Carmine Falcone and the Penguin. And that doesn’t even cover Catwoman’s role in all of this.
But when all the dust settles over the secrets of the Riddler, Batman has one last secret to reveal after the credits. But lest we have too high hopes for you, the post-credits tag of this movie is actually not very important. Scene. Instead, it’s more of a very brief piece of text that doesn’t really matter at the moment. And it goes away in the blink of an eye.
But if you want to stick around or want to read up on the scene instead, here’s what you can expect and what it means. Majority BatmanThe thrilling teases of the sequels take place during the actual movie, not in the credits. In that sense, it’s more like a pre-Marvel superhero movie. The Penguin watches over the city he’s about to try to take over, Catwoman leaves Gotham with a good excuse to return, and the Riddler meets a new friend in his cell at Arkham Asylum.
Instead, after the credits, a green question mark appears on screen, much like the one the Riddler used onscreen. ratalada website. The Riddler—or at least that’s probably him—types in “Goodbye” and leaves a question mark after the phrase. The text then flashes briefly. That’s all.
The blinking text is hard to see in real-time, but its recording, stopped at just the right time, shows it’s just a URL for rataalada. While most moviegoers will assume this is just from the movie itself, die-hard fans BatmanAn extremely long cycle of hype will know that the site has also been part of an augmented reality game (ARG) that has been going on for over a year now.
The ARG originally combined several elements of the real world, including hidden messages on movie posters to eventually reveal the rataalada website and a sketch of Batman himself hidden behind several mysteries. However, now that the movie is actually out, it seems like the site has been updated with new mysteries and a new easter egg. This time, by answering the riddles correctly, you will receive a video of Thomas Wayne’s advertising campaign, edited by the Riddler, just like in the movie.
While this seems like just a neat piece of lore and content for the film’s most dedicated fans and mystery solvers, it’s entirely possible that there is some additional ARG element in the ad, but if it is, we haven’t found it yet. And there may be more in the coming days and weeks. Remember, the future Batman is not just an inevitable sequel, but two separate TV shows: one dedicated to the Gotham Police Department and the other to the Penguin.
