At the end of The Batman, the Riddler, in prison in Arkham, talks with a fellow prisoner who seems to be well scarred on the face. It could be Two-Face or the Joker, we don’t know, the end credits naming the character “unknown prisoner”. Nevertheless, his laugh, and the mention of a clown, gave us a certain clue. We now have confirmation, with the appearance on the Internet, after an online riddle, of a scene that was cut at the Assembly. A confrontation between said prisoner, played by Barry Keoghan, and Batman. A dialogue that suggests that it takes place at the beginning of the film since, here, the vigilante comes to see this criminal with questions about the Riddler’s enigmas. On the one hand, we understand that a 2:55 film has had to separate from certain scenes, and that this one could be repeated with the conclusion. Nevertheless, it seems that this end scene is more coherent and seems less like a hair in the soup to us. In an interview for Allociné, Matt Reeves gives some additional clues. First, the arrested and imprisoned killer has yet to take on the identity or idea of being the “Joker”. Second, the goal was not to introduce a villain for the second installment, but to show that criminals had already passed in Batman’s way. In short, it’s just a bonus, but we take it anyway.
