We are starting to prepare for one of the major film events of 2022: “The Batman”. And to feed the impatience of fans of the famous bat, Warner has put online a small interactive experience in the manner of the Mystery Man. Can you answer his questions?
The batman : the Mystery Man games begin
As the end of the year draws near and 2021 will soon be done with its blockbuster releases, it’s time to look to the future. More precisely, around March 2, 2022, the date on which we will discover The batman, new superhero movie starring Robert Pattinson in the mask and Matt Reeves directing. To promote the film, the cast decided to immerse audiences in the plot by using the main villain of the film, the Mystery Man, and its famous puzzles. There is indeed a mysterious web page, on which we must answer a few questions to perhaps get a reward.
Signs to decipher
We saw it in the trailer, the Mystery Man will be Batman’s enemy and he intends to drive him crazy. Portrayed by Paul Dano, the “Riddler”, in original version, is a character as facetious as it is terrifying. He should sow terror in Gotham, while leaving here and there his famous question marks and cruel puzzles. On displays arranged in different cinemas, we could notice a succession of symbols, and Matt Reeves himself posted an animated poster on Twitter using these symbols.
Fans racked their brains to decipher the formula, and come up with this translation: “You are el rata alada“, which can be translated by” You are the winged rat “. And since this translation, finally discover a mysterious and interactive page: rataalada.com.
Can you find the answers?
On this page with the DOS aesthetics of basic programming comes a challenge. You must then answer each correctly to move on to the next question. There are three of them, and once the third question has been correctly answered, a small “gift” is available, namely sketches of Batman made by the Gotham City police.
The principle is fun, especially since it is not so common for the promotion to use ARGs to motivate communities of fans and feed their impatience.
