The Internet Has Solved The Riddler’s Mysterious Riddle In ‘The Batman’ Trailer

Warner Bros.

You ever just feel stupid? No offense, can’t relate. I’m kidding, I totally can relate. I walk into rooms and forget what I’m doing there all the time. Is that the weed’s fault? *Walter White voice* You’re god damn right it is. But it makes me feel dumb all the same.

It’s rare, though, that something on the internet makes me feel like an idiot, considering that the internet is the breeding ground of idiots. If idiocy was a religion, social media would be its Church. It’s hard to feel short when you’re the tallest guy in the room, you know?

All that said, this dude right here — who’s definitely one of those guys who solves Rubix Cubes on YouTube — has certainly made me feel like a comparative idiot after he solved Riddler’s message to the Dark Knight in The Batman trailer.

At the beginning of the trailer, Jeffrey Wright’s Jim Gordon hands Batman a letter from Riddler which asks “what does a liar do when he’s dead?”. The answer? He lies still. Now, to be fair to my brain, “what does a liar do when he’s dead?” isn’t necessarily Nikola Tesla-levels of engineering, but the fact that my man right here took the time to solve the actual code is impressive.

Or, perhaps I’m just a gigantic nerd who cannot get enough of this trailer for The Batman and am hellbent on writing about it as much as possible. You decide. That’s my riddle to you.

The Batman — which stars Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin, Paul Dano as Edward Nashton/Riddler, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Jeffrey Wright as Gotham City Police Commissioner James Gordon, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Peter Sarsgaard as Gotham District Attorney Gil Colson — is currently set to hit theaters in the United States on October 1, 2021.
