    Hi, this is my first post on here, been reading all of the ideas about the potential ending being a shock. How about Batman is in Arkham after taking the Riddler there, he goes to check up on some inmates but discovers Joker has escaped (wow Joker, surprise!) We then cut to Bella Real at home, there's a knock at the door and when she opens it Joker is smiling back at her. Kind of like the Killing Joke scene with Barbara. Thinking if Bella Real is a good character we like and root for in the film, Joker turning up and killing her could be a big shocking moment that no one saw coming? If it was Phoenix (unlikely) as Joker too, that would be a pretty big and shocking end that would get people talking.

    This was back in November of 2019 couple of months before they started filming in 2020. Maybe those Arkham scenes are towards the end of the movie.

    The Batman is gonna end with Batman and Gordon on a rooftop talking about their next assignment and Gordon gives Batman a packet of ketchup and mustard.

    Fun fact: Robin was introduced less than a year after Batman was.

    AND Robin was introduced BEFORE Joker.

    I don't think Robin will be teased much in this movie, but I definitely think he'll be showing up in this trilogy.

    Guys it's Ben Affleck who shows up at the end of the movie. This is connected with Flashpoint. I hear Battinson, BatFleck and BatKeaton will recreate the Spider-Man pointing meme too.

    Agreed. For the record, I'm not saying that I don't want Robin to show up! I want to see that proper father-son dynamic between Bruce and Dick shown onscreen.

    I just don't think that a tease of the Flying Graysons is the sort of thing that'd get a test screening audience full of casual viewers to lose their minds at the end. It's the sort of thing that'd send us diehards into a frothing mess.

    I can almost guarantee that the Arkham scenes are a finale showdown type deal

    That’s fans though. A very small percentage. Personally I think it would be more appropriate to tease Robin during the second. It’s definitely not what that guy was talking about for The Batman though. People aren’t going to be screaming, clenching their knees or feeling like it’s the ultimate mic drop lol. A Robin tease for most ppl is like a “ohh cool!”..

    I think you guys might be reading too much into what one person said (vaguely) about their experience at a screening. If it was something ridiculous like a big time actor as Joker or some major twist methinks there would be a leak. Every film that has these types of screenings real details end up out there. My guess is the ending was just something cool (like an Arkham style reveal) and the person is playing it up cause he got the reference and after the movie he just watched it was the perfect stinger.

    If it was a Joker reveal with a big name actor we would have heard rumors of it by now.

    JMHO.

    Of course we are, what else is there to talk about? :funny:

    Plus the speculating is fun. It's one of the reasons why I enjoy coming to the hype.

    I'm pretty sure 75% of people know that Dick Grayson is Robin's name.

    Dick Grayson was in two (three if you cant 66) Batman movies dude, BTAS, the Adam West show, all over the Titans cartoon and live action show. People know the name Dick Grayson.

    I have to heavily disagree on this. Having burly alien-fighting spandex Batfleck in between Nolan's Batman and Reeves' more current Batman makes the latter feel that much more special physically speaking at the very least.

    I dunno, otherwise that lady in TDKR would've said Dick.

    I'm sorry but that ending description really does sound like a Joker thing or at the very least something involving Joker and a few other characters.

    Yeah, although I won't be surprised if the Flying Graysons is teased to an extent in this movie. But I don't think that's what the guy was referring to.

    Very very curious what a Joker in this universe would look like. Ledgers Joker looks like he would have fit perfectly into this world, so it's really interesting to think what he would like

    My parents grew up with the 60’s show and couldn’t name Robin if their lives depended on it. The majority today haven’t seen that show or remember/seen the Schumacher movies in detail. The GA aren’t sitting around reading comics or watching Batman/Titans cartoons. Those are fans not general cinema goers.

    I'm thinking they make him look freaky. No makeup, more like ASHOSE. Wild shorter hair instead of the overused long hair. Wardrobe similar to Bermejo's Joker but with different colors, maybe muted brighter/warmer colors.
