The latest riddle from the Rataalada website might be promising the return of Paul Dano’s Riddler in The Batman sequel.
The Riddler has been leaving riddles leading up to the release of The Batman on an actual Rataalada website for fans to decipher. Recently, many fans were awaiting whatever was going to be posted next. Once the countdown was complete, a new post revealed a cipher that can be translated to “Gotham Loves A Comeback.” Of course, this is in reference to what Barry Keoghan’s Joker tells the unmasked Riddler when they are locked up in Arkham at the end of The Batman.
Riddler might be locked up in Arkham, but there’s probably a good chance he will turn up again in either the next film or in the planned Arkham Asylum series. You can check out the cipher of the message referencing the Riddler’s return below.
Here is the synopsis for The Batman:
Two years of stalking the streets as the Batman (Robert Pattinson), striking fear into the hearts of criminals, has led Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies — Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis), Lt. James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) — amongst the city’s corrupt network of officials and high-profile figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole embodiment of vengeance amongst his fellow citizens.
When a killer targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the World’s Greatest Detective on an investigation into the underworld, where he encounters such characters as Selina Kyle/aka Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot/aka the Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro), and Edward Nashton/aka the Riddler (Paul Dano). As the evidence begins to lead closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City.
Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the titular hero, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Colin Farrell as the Penguin, and Barry Keoghan as The Joker.
