Is there a post-credits scene in “The Batman”? Riddler website explained

The following story contains spoilers for The Batman.


The Marvel Cinematic Universe Didn’t Invent the Post-Credits Scene – We Can Go Back to 1966 The Silent Ones for that, but it’s largely popularized what we’ve come to expect from great movies from our biggest movie franchises. The MCU has created a formula for the mid- and post-credits scene – often teasing what’s to come, introducing new characters that will be fleshed out or elaborated on later, or both – that other movies have tried to mirror. And they haven’t had much success. Maybe that’s why The Batman goes in a slightly different direction.

Part of the reason MCU credits stingers are so beloved is that they strike the right balance between filling in the blanks and getting audiences excited. See Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury for the first time after the 2008 credits Iron Man was a real game changer. When 2012 The Amazing Spider-Man showed The Lizard (Rhys Ifans) encountering a stranger in a jail cell during his credits scene… the same plot didn’t quite hit the mark.

The Batman is very different from the other films we have mentioned. Closer to a David Fincher-style noir crime thriller than a high-flying superhero flick, it would be a bit odd if the film ended with some sort of colorful tease.

Director Matt Reeves wanted fans to feel like it was a complete story. He didn’t want to include some sort of credits scene to specifically poke fun at a future he himself wasn’t entirely sure of. “I never wanted to feel like we were saying this is chapter one, because I always feel like we don’t know if this is chapter one, it’s just this history,” he said. The Washington Post. “I wanted this experience to be a complete experience and therefore I never intended to do [a post-credits scene] because that was not what the film was intended to do. It was… here’s that story about Batman in that year two [on the crime-fighting job] live this experience.”

However, Reeves has put together a few things to grab for the future. Obviously, we got a very juicy scene towards the end with an “Unseen Arkham Prisoner” in a cell next to Paul Dano’s Riddler, played by Barry Keoghan. Our implication, of course, is that this friendly prisoner is the latest version of The Joker. We don’t know if/when we’ll see him again, but he’s officially established in this world.

And then, after the credits, there is not a complete scene. But Reeves told the To post that the flashing screen after the credits is “something the audience is supposed to see”.

Is there a post-credits scene in The Batman?

There is no post-credits stage at the end of The Batman. However, there is is a post-credits message, using the same screen where Batman and The Riddler are seen communicating throughout the film.

The screen, with its black and green appearance, displays a question mark on the screen. before the words “GOOD BYE?” flash on the screen. Then, quickly, a website flashes on the screen. If you missed the site, we wouldn’t blame you – it only really flashed for about a second. But the web address is: www.rataalada.com.

Obviously, a key element of The Batman found the Dark Knight and Jim Gordon trying to solve the Riddler’s many puzzles. One of them found our heroes hoping to figure out the identity of someone called “El Rata Alada”, Spanish for “The Winged Rat”, involved in the imprisonment of Sal Maroni before the events. of the movie. While Gordon and Batman initially suspect the clue might refer to Penguin (Colin Farrell) or Batman himself, they eventually realize that the rat referenced is crime boss Carmine Falcone (John Turturro).

Obviously the people behind The Batman (and the Warner Bros. marketing team) thought this would be the right URL for a movie site.

What’s on the rataalada website at the end of The Batman?

When you visit www.rataalada.com, the screen appears exactly the same as that of The Batman, black and green text with messages coming in both directions. The site is frequently updated, and in the first days after the film’s release, there was a series of puzzles. According to CNET, here are the puzzles on the site on Friday March 4, the opening day of the film:

  • I am first a cheat or a ruse. Or maybe a mixture of both. It depends on your misinterpretation.
  • What was new is new again. Renaissance. Restoration. Reformation.
  • Fear whoever hides behind one.

    The answer to those questions was Confusion, Renewal, and Mask, and entering them correctly unlocked a password-protected video of Thomas Wayne’s mayoral campaign. Of course, one of the film’s key plot twists is that before he was murdered, Thomas Wayne was implicated in the murder of a reporter who was going to reveal private secrets about Martha Wayne’s mental health. Alfred claimed that Thomas simply told Carmine Falcone to keep the reporter quiet, but Falcone claimed that Thomas hired him to have the reporter killed. Much like the Riddler, Bruce, and the people of Gotham, we’ll probably never know the truth for sure.

    As of today (March 7, 2022), the site has a new image when clicked, titled “Its_Not_Over_Yet.jpg”. Look at the picture below:

    Don’t ask me, but some online sleuths have already figured out the cipher in the picture. Apparently it reads, “You think I’m done, but maybe you don’t know the whole truth. Every ending is a new beginning. Something is coming.”

    The Batman just had the second biggest box office opening weekend of the pandemic era, after only the juggernaut of Spider-Man: No Coming Home— so if the Riddler tells us “something is coming up,” well, that’s certainly not a stretch in the long run. We will all make a return to Gotham City as soon as possible.
