    I really can't see it , I'd imagine that Phoenix doesn't want to be a cameo , Joker was more of a standalone movie.

    Its been confirmed its two separate things.

    Also, spoiler thoughts?
    Riddler multiple times in the trailer talked about lying. Part of one of his backstories is that his father beat him so that he wouldn't lie, so he's going after liars. Why the interest in batman then?

    Perhaps a part of the plot is riddler wants to know his identity: "don't lie to me, who are you?" Which in truth he could say "I'm Batman" which to him is true.

    It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key

    Perhaps they are following the more recent Batman origin stories where Thomas Wayne was not the let's just say the most noble of citizens (like the Telltale Series games which were bleeping fantastic) and either Bruce is keeping that a secret or does not know about it. Or I am way overthinking it and simply has to due with the fact that Bruce is keeping the fact he is Batman hidden therefore living a lie.

    And well played by both @Princess_Tina and @Sith_Sensei__Prime!

    Edit: And put this in the DC Universe thread but in case nobody saw this, apparently there was a riddle in the teaser trailer and apparently it was solved by some insane soul:

    Always thought that Nolan's Dark Knight Rises should have had the Riddler (instead of Bane) as the center baddie. Like...at the end of DK, Batman runs off, he's wanted now, being hunted. It sets up the question of Who's really Batman? Enter: genius maniac who solves the puzzle and then starts targeting Bats threatening to reveal the secret, etc, and revealing mysterious riddles to lure Batman out of hiding.

    Glad to see Riddler back on screen though.

    What are the thoughts about Pattinson's Bruce Wayne from what we've seen?

    The only criticism I've seen of the trailer so far are a few people saying they didn't like how Bruce looks.
    Maybe it's a traditionalist thing, that Bruce should look like a billionaire (nice hair, nice suit etc).

    I've seen a trailer with no context to the scenes outside of the suit.

    I'll pass judgement after I see the film, anything else is far too soon

    He did have a bit of a crusading lawyer look to him. Instead of the billionaire warrior look we are used to.

    But I always refer back to how people reacted after news came out about Heath Ledger playing the Joker, and look at how that turned out. So I always withhold judgement about a casting until I see the final product.

    Yeah, you can't judge a book by its cover.

    His hair is too floppy. That's my only issue with what we've seen of him so far.

    Holy cow...my brain hurts just trying to read how that person solved the riddle (that code is very Zodiac killer which fits in with the (not) :cool:SE7EN vibe.)

    Thanks for posting that. I think...:p

    Re: Bruce. If this is Year One, I would expect that Bruce doesn’t quite have a grip on the dual identity yet. So his looking like a typical Billionaire or previous Bruces or not, isn’t a problem for me at all.

    The riddle itself is an old one. I suspect the solver just googled it.

    It's a simple substitution cipher. Your brain hurts reading the explanation for that? Are you by any chance looking forward to the Snyder cut?

    Thanks @Diggy

    @a star war yes, my brain hurts with puzzles and ciphers etc. Partly why I never liked mysteries until recently (I just gave up on solving them and let the mystery unfurl).

    This is a pretty good Twitter thread on Batman as a crime-fighting character and what tends to go wrong when the writers go with a more gritty portrayal of the character:


    Not sure if this will or will not be true about The Batman but there are some good points in general, imho
