The Batman UNVEILS is a new poster that has a subtle Riddler message

On the Batman movie poster, there is a very subtle hidden Riddler feature. Paul Dano plays the legendary riddling Batman villain in Matt Reeves’ dark and brutal new Caped Crusader drama.

The Riddler was a significant foe of Batman in the early DC comic books, alongside The Joker, The Penguin, and others. Frank Gorshin, who played the sinister figure in the 1960s Batman tv show, was the first to bring him to life in a campy way on screen. For the first time on the big screen, Jim Carrey played The Riddler in Batman Forever. The character has appeared in a variety of media, from Gotham to the animated Harley Quinn TV show.

It’s safe to say, though, that when The Riddler returns for The Batman, he’ll look nothing like he has in past on-screen appearances.

Check out the poster below:

Indeed, Dano’s Riddler is largely unknown in the marketing materials and trailers for The Batman. Batman’s newest image doesn’t show the villain at all, but a hidden detail reveals at how important he is to the film. The mask and beard stubble of Robert Pattinson’s Batman are featured prominently on the poster. Focusing on Batman’s eye, on the other hand, reveals the Riddler’s hidden message: the character’s trademark question mark symbol. Several trailers have featured that question mark.

Meanwhile, according to Screenrant, the Riddler has only been spotted a few times, most recently in a photo that depicts the character looking more like a crazed serial killer or a forest-dwelling anti-government doomsday prepper than a Batman adversary. Surprisingly, the new Riddler’s non-comic-book style indicates that Reeves and his team are going for something different from previous big-screen Batman treatments. It’ll be interesting to see if the new, less campy Riddler is indeed a frightening opponent for Pattinson’s melancholy Kurt Cobain-inspired recluse Bruce Wayne.
