The Batman director Matt Reeves has released a deleted scene from the film, which sees Robert Pattinson‘s Batman interact with Barry Keoghan‘s Joker at Arkham Asylum. The scene was first posted on a website shared by Reeves, which tasked viewers with solving word puzzles mimicking those of the Riddler (Paul Dano), though the video is now more widely available.

“What’s interesting is that the reason that Joker’s in the movie is there was actually another scene that was earlier,” Reeves previously said in an interview with IGN. “And because the movie is not an origin tale for Batman, but it’s his early days, it really is an origin tale for the Rogue’s Gallery’s characters. And for me, I think [it’s] this idea that the Joker is not yet the Joker, but they already have this relationship.”

“The scene that was not in the movie…it’s a scene where Batman is so unnerved because the Riddler is writing to him,” Reeves added. “And he’s like, ‘Well, why is this guy writing to me?’ And he figures he’s got to profile this killer.”

“Almost our anniversary, isn’t it?” Joker says to Batman in the newly-released scene. Batman pushes Joker for an explanation on why the Riddler is wreaking havoc on Gotham and leaving a trail of clues for him to uncover.

“Maybe he’s a fan of yours?” Joker says. “Or maybe he’s got a grudge against you, too. Maybe you’re the main course.” He later adds, “I think somewhere, deep down, you’re just terrified because you’re not sure he’s wrong,” followed by cackling laughter.
