If you were seduced by the most recent trailer for The batman, you may not have noticed the weird symbols at the bottom of the title / distribution card that appear at the very end. It turns out they were a message left by the riddler (via Warner Bros. PR service) for you.

If you have noticed the symbols then you are well aware that they are weirder than the Riddler often leaves behind with his signature. interrogation point. These have been decoded after the first trailer released in 2020, so it probably didn’t take long for these same detectives to realize that the message in that trailer is “You are el rata alada”. “El rata alada” is Spanish for “the winged rat”, which is a common (although incorrect) epithet for animals among the enemies of bats. But “you are el” is phonetically identical to the URL “, which leads people to see if”www.rataalada.com”Did not reserve any surprises.

I love how terrible and sad the left-most Batman looks. It’s as if Commissioner Gordon saw this pitiful drawing, ordered the 10-year-old GCPD police artist to go to art school for a decade, and then try again. There is another less tragic promotional art to be found if you reload the site, as the Riddler asks if you’ve been to Penguin’s Iceberg Lounge; either answer gives you access.

Honestly, it’s not the greatest augmented reality game / viral movie, and certainly doesn’t have much in the rewards department, but I wouldn’t trade my time with this depressed, gentleman with full lips for nothing.

The batman premieres March 4, 2022 – and those answers, if you’re wondering, are “street”, “law” and “batman.” You will know who is what.
