While The Batman may not feature a traditional post-credits scene, fans wanting to know where a potential sequel could go should still pay attention.
Warning: The following article contains spoilers for The Batman.
Dedicated fans may be disappointed by the lack of a post-credits scene in The Batmanbut that doesn’t mean there’s not a teaser for a potential sequel…
Audiences that sit through The Batman‘s credits will eventually be greeted by a screen that simply reads, “Good Bye?” written in neon green. A barrage of cryptic images follows the words just before a URL is quickly displayed. When plugged into a search engine, fans are taken to what appears to be the Riddler’s website, where the maniacal serial killer provides three puzzles. If answered correctly, a password must be typed in before a strange video plays that seemingly teases the plot of the next Batman film.
While Warner Bros. has yet to formally announce a sequel to The Batman, director Matt Reeves has previously noted that he’s already had discussions about a second movie. “I really believe in what we’ve done and I’d be excited to tell more stories,” said Reeves. “We have started talking about another movie, but, y’know, right now we’ll just put it out in the world and I’ll try to enjoy this.”
Despite a formal follow-up still being up in the air, fans can look forward to plenty more Batman content in the form of two HBO Max spin-off series. Reeves confirmed that one of the shows will focus on Oswald Cobblepot aka The Penguin as he rises to power in Gotham’s seedy underworld. Colin Farrell is set to reprise his role as the iconic villain, who also features in The Batman albeit as a lower-tier crook that has yet to create his own mythology.
The other HBO Max series will hone in on Arkham Asylum. The only thing known about the project is that it’s still in the very early stages of development and more news will likely be shared in the coming months.
The Batman has been met by an overwhelmingly positive reception from both fans and critics. Writing for CBR, Brandon Zachary says that The Batman“feels like the only recent portrayal of the character to truly explore what that concept means — not just to the Dark Knight but to his world around him. The Batman is sure to engross new fans and might be a comic fan’s dream version of a Batman film.”
The Batman is now in theaters.
