Now the site is rewarding those of us who waited patiently (or lazily) for other people to crack the code, offering a zip file containing the Riddlers’ notes to anyone who visits the webpage. But first, the disembodied typist offers a final message: “You’ve come this far. Now let’s see if you’re ready to uncover more. While you unmask all that has yet to be revealed, I am safe here. . With my new friend. See you soon.”
This seems to be a clear reference to the last scene we see of The Riddler in “The Batman,” in which he befriends a maniacally laughing prisoner played by Barry Keoghan. Director Matt Reeves explained that while Keoghan appears to be the Joker, the scene was the last vestige of a supporting character who was cut from the edit, not necessarily a teaser for a role in a future film. Still, that final message pretty clearly alludes to the Riddlers’ shadowy companion — the “we’ll see you soon” line seems much more deliberate as a teaser than that somewhat ambiguous prison scene.
Along with the Riddler’s message, visitors also receive a zip file called “know_what_i_know”, which includes 24 files compiled from the killers’ question mark-covered conspiracy chart. A nine-page diary dated June 10 to July 21 (five months before the film’s debut, if we’re assuming it’s from the same year) turns into scribbled, repeated phrases, including “Confront them. Torture them ” and “I know what I must become”. .”
While the diary appears to be a treasure trove of disturbed rants and possible easter eggs, the photo files are largely hi-res versions of images and scraps of paper we saw in the film. Among them are magazine covers highlighting the public exploits of people who would later become victims of the Riddlers, and a blueprint for that gnarled rattrap torture device. Undoubtedly, there are plenty of “The Batman” clues out there for anyone who wants to study these chilling images and messy ramblings.
