The clip, which can be accessed by answering a series of riddles La Talada Netshowing the dialogue between Bat and the (future) Clown Prince of Crime.
The scene begins with Pattinson’s Batman visiting Keohan’s Joker, asking him what he thinks of the Riddler’s latest murder spree in Gotham.

The Caped Crusader then gives the Joker a pile of documents he collected while investigating the Riddler. The terrifying form of the villain is also carefully observed in the clip:
The clown laughs while looking at the file and says there is “Violence,” That’s the way the Riddler “meticulous” When it comes to making puzzles, it seems “He’s been planning this all his life.”
The Joker then teases Bat that he knows who he is, prompting Bruce to ask the Riddler’s identity.However, the Joker says he is a “Nobody wants to be famous,” The reason is that his motives are not political.Instead, it is “Very, very personal.”
The clown then shares what he thinks the riddle man “Think these people [his victims] wronged him.” before saying it “Probably going back a long way.”

The common history of Batman and the Joker
Many will agree that this five-minute clip offers a wonderful preview of the shared history between Robert Pattinson’s Batman and Barry Keohan’s The Joker. From the outset, the footage solidified the pair’s intriguing dynamic, raising their expectations for a final duel.
At this point, Bruce has only Alfred and Jim Gordon as his closest allies, the latter unaware of his true identity as Gotham’s protector. Given that he’s still in his second year as Batman, it seems fitting that he would turn to his captive foe for help.
The scene also suggests that the bats know the Joker has something special about recognizing targets like him, which could suggest that their first encounter is an important part of Bruce’s hero’s journey. Don’t know if the Joker is Batman’s last resort or first choice, but it suggests this is a desperate move for the DC hero.
Meanwhile, Joker’s horror design is another fresh aspect Batman universe.Matt Reeves previously sharedhe wants to create a version “Back to the roots,” Quote this iteration inspired by 1928 laughing man It also portrays him as a biologically conditioned person because of his smile.
The deleted scene not only showed a fresh take on the villain, but it also created a sinister atmosphere that could terrify viewers.
It remains to be seen where the Joker will appear next, but there are signs that an HBO Max spinoff centered on Arkham Asylum is the way to go.
