In recent days, a huge surprise has been made to the public. A few weeks after the release of “The Batman”, we were able to discover a crazy deleted scene in which the Dark Knight converses with the Joker. A small detail could greatly be important for the future.
The Batman: a deleted scene with the Joker
It was expected and did not disappoint. The Batman is an inspired reinterpretation of the famous character from the DC galaxy. The film garnered over $600 million at the worldwide box office (while still playing) and a sequel seems more likely than ever. Moreover, the last minutes have explicitly revealed what a second film can tend towards. Riddler, locked up in Arkham, meets the Joker. This other inmate is not shown and has to make do with a vocal appearance.
Everything suggests that he will be able to escape and be the next opponent of Robert Pattinson’s Batman. While the outlines of this sequel are still unclear, we are assured that the universe will have the right to an extended development with two series – one about the Gotham Police, the other about the Penguin.
During the promotion of the film, Matt Reeves revealed that the Joker could have been a little more present in the editing of The Batman. A confrontation scene with Batman was filmed but was not retained. A choice on which one can question now that it has been officially revealed by Warner. These five cut minutes were uploaded in an unexpected way. The Joker played by Barry Keoghan is wildly successful, with a dirty and damaged side that contrasts with the previous known incarnations in the cinema.
This detail should not be missed
The scene takes place in Arkham Asylum, as Batman has sought out the famous antagonist. He hopes this exchange will give him some clues on how to stop Riddler. Except that the Joker takes advantage of it rather make his show and our hero is not more advanced on his investigation when leaving the scene. In addition to the bad guy aspect, it is necessary to insist on the staging of Matt Reeves and his play on the vagueness which contribute to reinforcing his monstrosity.
Our attention very logically focuses on all the elements of his body that are revealed. However, a detail in the scene may have gone unnoticed when it could be of major importance in the future. Several Internet users have noticed the disappearance of a paper clip when the Joker returns the file on Riddler to the Batman:
This small object can become dangerous in the hands of a madman like the Joker. We wouldn’t be surprised if he was employed in his next appearance. These shots on the file cannot be insignificant from a meticulous director like Matt Reeves and the false connection theory hardly holds. We will see in the future if this paper clip will be important!
