The Batman Has a Lot of Twists and Turns in His Story. Matt Reeves tells a dark but compelling story about a Bruce Wayne (Robert Pattinson) we’ve never seen before, and his ambition to take down Gotham’s newest nemesis, The Riddler, in under three hours (Paul Dano).
The film’s finale provides lots of fresh facts for viewers to consider, but what about the post-credits scene?
If you lingered until the credits, you’re probably wondering what you just saw on the screen. Unlike other post-credits sequences, The Batman leaves the audience with one last puzzle to solve. After the credits have rolled, see what you may have missed.

The Riddler’s immediately familiar question mark cursor blinks at the conclusion of the credits. After a short pause, green writing appears onscreen with the words “Goodbye.”
The screen then flashes extremely fast again, exposing what seems to be a website address.
While I can’t be confident of the URL since it was so quick and I only watched the movie once, I believe the website presented is Rataalada.com.
One of the primary hints The Riddler gave Batman in the film was “El Rata Alada,” which means “the winged rat” in Spanish.
As a result, it’s not surprising that Batman’s marketing team established a companion site, inspired by The Riddler, to enable fans to interact with the film outside of the cinema.
The Batman Post-Credits: El Rata Alada
If I’m correct and the website is Rataalada.com, you may go there right now and try your hand at solving some Batman-inspired puzzles.
As the page loads onto your screen, you may observe the famous flashing question symbol from the movie.
The website was launched as part of a viral marketing effort for the upcoming film in December 2021. To uncover the website, fans deciphered a cipher, just as Bruce Wayne did in the film.
The site resembles a terminal server that invites users to answer entertaining Batman-related questions, but it doesn’t seem to offer anything new about the film or tease what’s next in The Batman 2, and it doesn’t appear to reveal anything new about The Batman 2.
If you were expecting to learn more about Barry Keoghan’s role as The Joker or if Batman and Catwoman would reconcile in the sequel, you may be dismayed to learn that the answers aren’t available on this private website.
But, thankfully, one major source of inspiration for The Batman provides significant hints – comic books!
