Matt Reeves’ The Batman has now been released in cinemas in the UK and the US and people are already starting to ask questions about the film’s end credits scene.
I’ve seen people asking, firstly, if there is one, and then I’ve also seen people asking what it all means – because, spoilers, there is an end credits scene, of sorts.
Now, before I carry on with this article, I have to warn you that there are SPOILERS for The Batman in this article.
So, if you haven’t watched the movie, then look away now because I will be spoiling some stuff that happens in the new Matt Reeves DC Comics movie.
Does The Batman has a post or end credits scene?

Right, now that I’ve got that out the way, let’s talk about The Batman’s end credits scene.
The first thing is that the movie doesn’t have the sort of end credits scene that we’ve come to expect from superhero movies.
It’s not like the end credits scene you might get in a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, or even the ones in the previous DCEU movies.
No, what happens at the very end of The Batman is very much in keeping with the whole tone of the movie.
The screen starts off all black, and then green text starts to appear on the screen.
What this is is very much like the text that Batman and. James Gordon witnessed on the computer when they solved one of the Riddler’s riddles and realised he was leading them to a URL.
The URL in question was www.rataalada.com, which you can go and visit right now.
Try and solve The Riddler’s final riddle
The text on the screen in the movie’s end credits scene reads as follows:
I’ve been expecting you. Want to play a game?
It’s more than just a game.
I am first a fraud or a trick. Or perhaps a blend of the two. That’s up to your misinterpretation.
You scour the internet for the truth, but you still need to answer me.
Yep, that’s it. The Batman ends with one final riddler from the Riddler. Is that just brilliant!
So, naturally people have done their utmost to try and solve this riddle.
The first thing you have to do is go to the website I liked up above (www.rataalada.com), and try and solve the riddle.
UPDATE: I’ve just been informed that this post-credits scene does change based on the location you’re in.
In France, which is where I saw the movie, we got the screen I detailed above.
In some territories, audiences will see the screen I mentioned above, while others just see the website’s URL in green letters.
That’s pretty interesting, and I’m not sure why they decided to do it this way.
Anyway, we haven’t been able to crack the riddler’s latest riddle.
Maybe you guys can?If you have cracked it, let us know in the comments below.
The Batman is in cinemas in the US and the UK right now.
