A promotional website for Robert Pattinson’s The Batman features a message from the Gotham City Police Department.
The viral marketing campaign for The Batman is the gift that keeps on giving as the film continues its run at the worldwide box office. This morning, Warner Bros. updated a promotional website for the movie with a message that reads that its domain “has been seized by the Gotham Police Department pursuant to a seizure warrant issued by the Gotham City District Court.”
The Batman website, which fans can still visit by entering the URLs “www.rataalada.com” and “youareelrataalada.com,” was linked to Paul Dano’s Riddler and had been dropping everything from cryptic images to videos of Thomas Wayne during his mayoral campaign. It’s unclear if the website will return now that it has seemingly been pulled down.
Earlier this week, Warner Bros. sent shockwaves through the internet by releasing a deleted scene from The Batman, featuring the first on-screen meeting between Robert Pattinson’s Dark Knight and Barry Keoghan’s Joker. The latter was only featured in a brief scene in the theatrical version of the movie, setting up his return alongside The Riddler.
While Warner Bros. has yet to officially announce a sequel to The Batman, Matt Reeves is currently working on expanding his Gotham with a series revolving around The Penguin for HBO Max. The writer-director is also developing another project with ties to Arkham Asylum.
Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the titular hero, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Colin Farrell as the Penguin and Barry Keoghan as The Joker.
