The Batman is now streaming on HBO Max, and that’s allowed viewers to pause the film and take screenshots of potential Easter eggs. One such viewer found a particularly impressive one, and director Matt Reeves confirmed that their identification was, in fact, correct.
Warning! This Easter egg contains spoilers for the film! If you don’t want to be spoiled stop reading here and/or check out the first eleven minutes of the film for free in the video below.
Okay, spoiler time!
Reeves’ take on Batman is darker than what we’ve seen before and features Robert Pattinson as the f—ked up recluse Bruce Wayne/The Batman, Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, and Paul Dano as the Riddler. Near the end of the movie, we find out that Dano’s character has had an apartment across the street from the Iceberg Lounge, the establishment where most of the incriminating photos of Gotham’s finest were taken, a regular hangout for Colin Farrell’s Penguin and the place of employ for Selina.
One intrepid Twitter user shared a screenshot of something his more-intrepid friend noticed—at the 31:55-minute mark we get a view of the Iceberg Lounge and Paul Dano’s Riddler from his apartment across the street watching all that goes on. Reeves quote tweeted the finding and wrote, “Indeed, I can confirm. 100%”
