The Batman: NEW Footage Teases the Greatest Riddle of All Has Been Solved
Thanks to a newly released Japanese trailer for The Batman, we get to see a couple of new clips for the upcoming blockbuster movie starring Robert Pattinson in the main role and once again, it has got plenty of fans talking. Some of the new footage gives us a look at the Riddler (played by Paul Dano) and also hints that he may have solved the greatest riddle of them all… Who is the Batman? Well, it appears that Paul Dano’s Edward Nashton may know the answer.
“I’m here to unmask the truth about this city” says the mysterious Riddler, who will be portrayed as a sadistic serial killer using complex traps that target Gotham City’s elite, and we know a huge theme for the movie will be corruption, whether that’s from the police or Gotham’s rich and wealthy, the Riddler is out for revenge. For what exactly? That is still unknown yet, but the new footage gave us an insight as to what this could be.

One of the new clips shown was a board full of pictures within the Riddler’s hideout showing a picture of himself when he was younger looking over at what seems to be a young Thomas and Martha Wayne, Bruce Wayne’s parents. Plenty of rumours surrounding the early life of Paul Dano’s suggest that he was an orphan and this picture of him as a child could be at the orphanage which might be funded by the Wayne family? Did the Wayne’s have a part to play in the wrong doings of the Riddler’s early life? It appears that there might be a chance.
From the same clip we can see that Edward Nashton has also been keeping a close eye on the “reclusive” Bruce Wayne as he has pinned up numerous newspaper clippings of the infamous billionaire on his wall. This includes a headline which reads “WAYNE SPOTTED, Reclusive Billionaire Seen With Mystery Woman” which presumably is referring to Zoe Kravitz’s Selina Kyle aka Catwoman.

It is clear to see from all trailers released for The Batman that Riddler has taken a special interest in both Batman and Bruce Wayne but the shocking reveal from the newest footage suggests that Riddler knows that Batman and Bruce Wayne are both one in the same, as we hear his voice right before the trailer ends saying “I’ve been trying to reach you… Bruce Wayne” followed by a sadistic laugh. If correct, this puts a huge burden on the caped crusader as the challenge of stopping the Riddler will be his toughest challenge yet in his two years of crime-fighting.
