The new DC movie, which will see Robert Pattinson face the Caped Crusader, dropped a Japanese trailer last day (December 12).
At one point at the end, though, a mysterious, sinister voice exclaims with a frightening laugh: “I’ve been trying to reach you, Bruce Wayne.”
While this may just be Paul Dano’s Riddler, another moment that adds clues to a possible Joker reveal, a very brief glimpse on the wall shows a very distinct smile.
There is also speculation that Barry Keoghan could play the Joker, despite him being included in the cast as Gotham Police Officer Stanley Merkel.
Fans were quick to pick up on the potential cues on social media:

Well, call me, but to me, this sounds like Barry Keoghan, makes me think about whether Joker is a bit like a stalking character and he really does watch Bruce. It would be the dreaded mint in my opinion.#batman pic.twitter.com/QSRipoxoF4
